i never had one. My older brother did.

if i am feeling nostalgic, i remember when he 1st went to fly the plane, I was in the way. he told me to move, so i ran out of the way and got tangled in the control line. if i remember correctly I ripped the lines right out of the wings. I just kept a runnin!

I loved the crappy spring starter on the 049 ... loved it even more when you would finally get rid of it after it wouldn't work...

Always fun to have to throw a rag at the motor because when you "one-flip-biatched" it...it would run the wrong direction....

Had the PT19 and moved up to the white Cosmic Wind racer

Don't feel bad..they serve a purpose and were a deal compared to stateside pricing ... mine has a little twist in the elevator stab which is currently off the plane. If someone doesn't take it off my hands I will convert to rocket assist takeoff... I don't know what F class that is but I see a bunch of kids fly that ....12 min duration and land

Inverted flight... no problem.

Whats the downside to the Elapor Arron? I honestly don't know. CA friendly is awesome though for corn field repairs.

cool video...like the inverted stuff... looks like a nice relaxing flyer... i think I was the one with the inverted comment.. the dihedral added to the regular radian and lack of ailerons lessened its ability to do that. i wanted something i could also fly around like normal

i didnt think Arron had a problem with elapor.. i think he likes the blizzard

all foamies of the elapor nature would be 100% cooler if it didn't have the dots in the foam, outside of that it's pretty rocking. and yup, I would have me a blizzard, I've seen em fly at a few events and they are rocking for sure.
