If you donít want to build some then donít look at the Prodij. Although if you follow the instruction I have on the site itís straight forward and guys spend more time worrying about building than it takes to actually do it. You also learn a few tricks that will pay off down the road. The flight performance is way worth it but if itís not your thing then look for something different.

The Prodij build on the site is the old version, So when you look at it everything about mounting the wing and v-tail are already done for you. Thatís about 70% of the old build instructions. Its basically glassing the V tail and hinging the flaperons now. I recommend fully glassing the v tail if you know it will have a hard life.

Other than being easier to build my opinion on the site still holds true today!

If you are not into building then look for something else but I did read a lot of your concerns about this being a major purchase for you and you want it to last. If lifespan and flying qualities are high on your list. It might be a good fit.
If you built a foamy then this is much easier! And far less sticky
