Bit of a waste really but you can obviously afford it.

It was very fixable until you started smashing it to pieces but never mind.

Do you guys really have feelings for a piece of foam? Gheez.. You make it sound like he committed animal cruelty or something..I thought it was entertaining.
I wish I had footage of me trying to fly my .049 powered ACE 2T in a schoolyard many years ago..

You may not have read the video description so I'll post it here:

Don't worry people, the plane was total garbage and not even worth giving away.
There are 2 other people in my club that have had the same plane and they both agree.
Even with mods its still total garbage.


The plane DID NOT FLY it was NOT fixable.

And Btw I earn below average pay so I dont have heaps of money as you may think.
The waste of money ($65) was buying it in the first place.
the battery was a damaged one from someone elses crash so was going to be thrown out anyway.

Orange RX $6 reusable
Esc $10 reusable
Lipo Previously damaged and to be thrown away anyway.
Servos were Hxt900 $2.69

It was all cheap stuff or reusable

I have been flying RC planes for years and currently have over 20 of them.

I know how to fly rc planes.

The plane just didnt fly, its as simple as that.


There is no reason to start with insults, especially when you either didn't
read the video description or chose to ignore it.

Poor dude. I quite enjoyed that little vid.

He paid for it - it didn't fly and he wanted some value for his money......what is wrong with that?

Crazy Aussies???? Crazy is overextending your military expenditure and sending your country and it's taxpayers broke.

HAHA, good stuff rattlesnake, I've been in similar situations, you try to make it work and it just doesn't. Eventually you get more enjoyment out of wrecking it than trying to get it to fly.... I would have went for the 150ft dive and full up elevator to fold the wings while holding WOT. Good stuff.....

As said in the video, it was crashed on purpose (Sort of)
I had 4 cameras filming in order to catch the crash on purpose however, the crash seen in the video was genuine.
The plane was total garbage to fly and when it started to do its own thing
straight after take off, I didnt really try to stop it.

That would have been another good thing to try.
My plan was to take it up High then 90deg into the ground WOT but the
plane had other ideas
