My Turbos have had short lives! (sob!).. their very manuverability leads to doing dumb things too low and close to Ma Earth.
I had one with a OS 15 on it.. for a couple flights. My oh My!
The wing BTW uses an S3016 profile. The plane builds so easy getting a couple of cores might be worth the effort.
This one here had an incredible flat spin mode.. Full wing and full up, it would stop in mid-air, then rotate faster than you could count, yet come back to flying just by letting off on the controls..
I tried pitcherons on the larger version, the Turbo ST.. It failed miserably ... dive tested into the ground three times. Once the nose got down, it couldn't come back up.
