After having seen this airplane fly on numerous occasions. The airplane is meant for IMAC style manuvers just like the UMX Beast was meant for. The airplane is very capable of high alpha knife edge.

Thanks for providing that information. Is there a video somewhere?
Couldn't find the weight of the stock battery but have estimated it at around 11 grams (0.39 oz). Adding the battery weight to the listed weight of the airplane gives a AUW of 2.3oz and a resulting wing loading of approximately 5.2oz / sqft. For IMAC style flying this should about nail it.
For those thinking of mods and 3d flying an increase in wing area of around 25% would bring the wing loading back down to around 4oz/sqft. The lighter loading is better for 3d performance and will allow the plane to fly a little slower in an indoor venue but still be ok outdoors in light winds. I'm sure there is a brushless motor capable of hovering the 342....yeah baby...now we're talkin' :-)

There's a bunch of Sbach's out there (in all sizes and materials).
I'm thinking of the indoor season for this one at the end of the year....maybe the price will come down by then :-)

But none made by Parkzone / E-flite. All the foam ones are profile or square bodied, and the wood ones are not parkflyers.
