Nine eagles micro spitfire, opinions?

Hi
I already have the PKZ UM j3,P51 and T28 .
I'm wondering if Nine Eagles can fly as well like PKZ stuff?, is durable?
I fly outdoors with 5 to 15 mph.

Regards!

I built one out of $20 in foam parts from HK, a crashed Mustang and a Mosquito prop/spinner.

I maidened it yesterday.

Durability is OK compared to a PKZ plane and it flies pretty good with Expo on ailerons.

It rolls a lot better than a T-28 or Mustang. Keep the CG forward, because it gets real rocky with the cg back and you fly it slow, though the rolls flatter with the CG back, you need to keep the speed up.

I flew it in about a 5 mph wind and it was fine. I wouldn't fly it in a 10-15 mph wind, however.

Right at the Molded in planel line on the wing that is about 22mm back from the LE.

Behind this line a few mm, it can get waggy in slow speed flight.

At or ahead of the line, it should track pretty straight at slow speeds.

The line is a good place to start.
