It's small, with a relatively small wing area. Hand launching mine proved difficult with the stock fan and motor - needs a fair bit of speed to get the wings working. Very light bungee assisted ground launch looks like it may be the go.

I used the stock wheels, but the plane banked to the left and chrashed. It was really difficult to control. The wings are very small.
I fixed it and I will try again.

Did you ever get yours flying? I have 1 too...but need to lengthen both ends of my ESC so it will fit in the location they provided.

Total fail!

I tried every trick on the book and nothing.

I had to put it out with a firecracker.

Now that escapes my memory. The plane was carefully balanced as per manual, but whith wheels or hand launch she always ended up in pieces.
I got tired after the seventh crash.
