Nice! I saw the PZ Albatross was finally discontinued but HK still has them. Quite a few PZ Albs and SE5as at our park still. I sold my SE5a cause I didn't like the way it flew, even after a PZ 15 motor upgrade. The Peaks looks like a Pitts Python. The Rhapsody sure is a neat lookin bipe! Will it do 3D?

No 3D with the Rhapsody, at least not with me at the controls.
I run a Gforce G32 motor on it with a 4 cell 3300 mah battery.
Meter showed 625 watts with s 13 x 6.5 prop.
It has pretty good power, but the plane is a little on the heavy side.
It has a 47 inch wingspan & the all up flying weight is right at 5 pounds.
I'm not very good at 3D, so the Rhapsody works out fine for me as a good flying Sport plane.
I have been practicing at getting better at some 3D stuff with the HyperBype & the T.H. Crack Turbo Beaver.

I don't take the Albatros out much.
It is easy to fly & looks good in the air.
What would one really expect from a Bipe with only 2 ailerons ?
Here is a pic a friend took with his cell phone a while back.

Maybe around the size of the Alien Aircraft PT17 but that doesn't have to built and covered.
