All the reading is definitely true. What a sweet sweet plane. I came from flying a 47 SHP for the last couple years. I had some flights on the 72 Extra (Gasser) as well.

I love this plane. It is so smooth yet can kick it when you want. I can't believe how much time you have to think/react compared to the 47 SHP. I knew it would be smoother, but I didn't know just how much.

Hovers and harriers are so much easier along with just about everything else. The motrolfly 3620 has great vertical on a 15x6 APC. I may try the 15x7 since watt testing showed another 100 watts. I am nowhere near the 100 amps for my ICE. I am pulling 67 on the 15x6 and 74 on the 15x7 (on 4S). I'm not a high speed guy so I'm not sure I need the 15x7 but will try it.
Mike so glad to hear and I know your comments will apply for me too as we have talked a lot on the 47" SHP and your observations match mine. I have been talking with Joe about this plane and it is no secret that this is his favorite if you had to have one plane. I am still having fun with my 47" SHP but it is not at all like my 87" SHP, maybe this will be a better match for it. I like how you comment on how much time you have to think/react compared to the 47". That is what I absolutely love about the 87". Sorry to hear about your servos and hope you get it worked out.
