This plane looks interesting. Does anyone know anything about it?

Here is a link to skip miller models. Looks like a giant motorized gentle lady. Looks like ailerons but not flaps.

Looks to me like an updated and great flying Bird of Time type nostalgia plane. I've talked to AD and Cody about this plane and they both, separately gushed about how nice it flew. Should be an ALES hit according to AD.

303-442-6454 ... wake up 'AD' Monday (early) morning and ask him about it. Ask him how many ribs are in the wing.

Reviving this thread. Anyone with additional info/reviews? I'm trying to decide between this one and another ARF. Love the look of the Legacy.

The Legacy appears to be the same plane as the China made Rhobbies Gliderman. At least in the specs.

I think you are right.

Skip also provides it in a PnP version but very little info about what's in it or if it has enough power for ALES. I guess you would have to call and ask. Looks like about 11 oz/sq ft wing loading

I can't find any reviews. There must be someone here who purchased this plane. Odd. I'll email Skip Miller Models.

Skip Miller never returned my email query so I went with a different model from another seller.
