It does look like a pretty nice design. I like all the included and preinstalled carbon. I've got a Turnigy 2209/28 1050kv motor that should be just about right for it.

I pulled the trigger on this one yesterday, it looked right and was calling my name. This will be my first 3d bird.

I lost my beloved e-flight yak 54 due to a radio glitch, it was a 12oz, ran 2 cell bl 2212/10 with a 11x4.7 prop and loved how stable and slow it flew. Any thoughts on how this setup would be on this plane?

If your motor can run on 3s with 9X4.7 or 10X4.7, weight around 40~50g and kv somewhere around 1200kv..............give it a try..........

Cheers

Mine came in today, quite impressed really. Extensively prefabricated, and even comes with a velcro battery strap and zip tie for the esc! The only strange thing is that the airfoil is definitely inverted! From about 40% chord it's flat on the top and convex on the bottom.

Packaged nicely, full colour instruction manual. All hinges are cut in. An evening's work and it's ready to fly.

Wheels are kinda small for grass, but I'll probably leave them off anyway. The wings are joined by a carbon rod running inside tube spars. With a minimum of work you could make them removable and have a suitcase model.
