New Great Planes mid-size Extra...
Couldn't find a thread anywhere here on this; sorry for the repeat if I missed one.
I have a Power 32 and matching ESC laying around that I've been looking for a home for, after the disaster that was the Sig XA-41. Knowing that GP ARFs are usually on the heavy side (which is one reason why they are so durable- they're built very well), I figured this model might just be the ticket.
So I ordered one last night.
Forgive me a bit of philosophy here: for those of you looking for "insane 3D", I expect this model would disappoint you. You'd be better off with one the more expensive, very-lightly-built offerings, like a PA or ExtremeFlight.
I'm rolling the dice on the premise that this model will be like every other Great Planes ARF (over a dozen; slimers) I've built; a solid, dependable airframe that is a terrific sport flyer, yet doesn't need constant TLC and will last many seasons.
Anyway, here it is:
There are two "builds" ahead of it, so it will be a while before I get around to assembling this one. However, I will post my initial impressions when the kit arrives, here in this thread.
