Tracy,
As far as flying you should have no problem. It flies similar to a sport plane and really has no bad habits as long as you fly it in a scale manner and no 3D.
Takeoffs and landings can be challenging. You have to let it rollout and build up speed on takeoff to avoid stalling (true of any warbird/taildragger.) Landings are uneventful ... just fly it down to the ground and let the speed bleed off and touch on it's own.

Kildar, a 50 amp hobby king esc is what I have in mine, and I can go 4s, but it really doesn't need it.------Metalguy

Stukas were super slow flyers. I think personally 4s would be ridiculous.

I enjoy flying my Stuka on 3S 2200s. Its not a speed demon by any means. But, it can carry the mail if you push it. Mine has been repainted from the winter camo to a summer camo. (would lose it on cloudy days -lol) As for flying it, loops and rolls are pretty easy as long as you give yourself altitude and time for it to complete the maneuver (i.e. its not a snappy 3D plane). As said before, takeoffs aren't too bad, but you have to get the tail flying before trying to take it off (and stay on the rudder) Landings, I set up a good approach, let it bleed off speed (Ii usually use 1/2 flaps, not that they are needed) and I try to three point the landing to stop any bouncing (i do this with all my warbirds that are taildraggers). It has good low speed handling for me.

I pulled the trigger on one of these yesterday. It will be shipped to my brother in Louisiana. I will build it up and fly it when I visit him in March.

It is -26C here this morning. Not much flying going on although the winter camo paint scheme would fit right in.

Cheers!

Thanks guys any help will be apreciated

There is not room in the plane. I made a special canopy to put my 808 camera in it and with small weight transmitter you possible could shove it all in the canopy area.
