Not this one, but have it's bigger brother, the super zoom and absolutely love it. Doesn't fly like the flat wing 3d foamies, it flies more like any other fully airfoil wing rc plane. I have learned more with it than anything I have owned and it is the one that always goes to the field with me, no matter how many or few planes I take. I'm seriously looking at this one for a yard flyer also. Go on and get it and report back so we all can benefit from your beta testing.

I'm hoping to build one soon and report on it. It may be a week or two though.

Ya, I am looking at one of these also....just sold $58.00 worth of my super-sweet-r/c-junk at a swap meet, so I can afford it now. This EPP firestorm is driving me nutz, in a good way.

Did it tear the motor mount clean off or break the foam somewhere behind the mount? Did you embed the aluminum rods along the sides of the fuselage?

Just put the first few flights on mine. Flew straight and level right out of my hand. Same when taking off of pavement. Pretty precise in the air, does only what you ask. Not a bad slow flier either. Since it is small, this is a good plane for tight outdoor areas.
