Whereas snaps and pop tops and tumbles show how a plane handles demanding inputs and how it carries momentum to execute difficult maneuvers. Honestly, I was very seriously considering this plane but went with the EF 64" MXS because even though quite a bit more expensive it was shown in video's to have the qualities I love in an RC Plane. I'd love to see a foamy version that would fly anywhere at all like the MXS, man I'd be all over that. Especially a scale version like some of the newer Skywings, although if this thing could demonstrate these flight capabilities to me I wouldn't hesitate to get it.
Thanks for your opinions.
I also think that EPP and balsa both have their own advantages. But EPP is EPP, balsa isbalsa, I dont think it's fair to compare EPP to balsa directly. We like EPP planes cause they are light, easy to be controlled, and endurable etc.. It's obvious hard to let an EPP plane do those high energy meanuvor as good as a balsa kit, that's why we need both EPP planes and balsa planes, and we can fly them well by different ways and styles.
EPP planes were developed so fast just in the passed few years, we should be pleased with them, we were all benifited.
