It was a truly amazing bike when bikes weren't too amazing as a whole.
Folks, check out this webpage for the Ares Gamma 370
. Steerable tail wheel, larger than a Champ, lighter than a Super Cub, optional use prop saver included, Pro aileron wing available separately to convert to 4-channel when you are ready.......unless they TOTALLY blow the marketing angle, here's your new #1 unassisted newbie trainer plane.
Is that pronounced bull taco?
And yeah, I've flown that Gamma a couple times, and I was almost jumping up and down with how great it was. In the 3-channel configuration it tracks perfectly - very surprising!
