Excellent....hopefully this plane won't have the tendency to break in half at the back of the canopy like the carbon yak does....

It does actually! The only negatives I noticed so far (and I only have about 3 flights on it at this point because I need some new batteries) is that I doesn't do a very tight blender. It also needs a fair amount of rudder in KE and I need to play with the throttle curve. You probably noticed that I was a little jumpy in the throttle in my rollers and hovers.

But it's honestly a very fun plane. I was pleasantly impressed!!

Steve,
I had the Carbon Z Yak 54 (That is the Plane that I learned on.) I loved that plane!(Not as much as my 3DHS Planes,but for a Foamy it was a Great Learner plane. I have heard that they had a weak spot behind the Fuse though.

Thanks Steve. I think I might even be looking for Something a little wider, but I am not sure. I might give those a shot and see how I like them.

Those are definitely wide!!

and there are a lot of stick ends out there, but for some reason a lot don't fit the DX8....why the heck did Spektrum make those different than other JR or Spektrum sticks?
