its pretty cool! feels big and looks like a drone!! flies slow and nice! and it was easy to land.
only problem i had was hand launching, it dropped down like a rock and pulled out of it with full elevator. Will fly again today! FPV later this week.

UPDATE: with my 4s 5000mah, I flew around for 15 minutes and only used up 1200mah out of the pack!!

Every new plane needs a break in crash before you can have fun flying it.

Antenna pointing toward the ground??? Well, I can't say much since I also crashed a few days ago because of bad signal.
