Great Planes Zlin

If you're anything like me, with all the new aircraft coming out late in the summer season this year, I didn't really notice the newest offering from Great Planes until I saw it up close at the hobby shop. The Zlin sports a flashy 'airshow' color scheme, and it's clean lines tell my eye it should handle very precisely once I get it built and in the air. I took some time to unpack the box and some of it's contents this afternoon, and I must say Im excited to get started on this one.

Keep an eye open for the full review coming here on RCGroups.

QC seems to be very good so far. The ONLY thing I could pick out would be the covering wrinkles up in the sun a bit (but then again every ARF I have does this too). The details on the instrumentation are some of the best I've seen in an ARF ..... countersunk gauges even!

The tail surfaces look airfoiled. Nice looking plane, should be capable of very nice and clean pattern-like aerobatics and probably be darn quick

I am building one of these now. It is really well put together and the instructions are very good.

I hope to have it finished within the week.
