I have one of the new Prelude REF and it is by far one of the best that I have had in a long time. My eyes are just not as good as they were and I need a bigger and wider wing so I can see it up high. I just like the way this bird looks in teh pictures.

I've bought about 5 planes from Lucy Esprit. Great service, and high quality.

I just ordered one of their Elipsoids, 110". I need a mild flier.

But I have also been eyeing this Albatross. Beautiful!

For anyone going with the Elipsoid, I am putting the elevator and rudder servos in the cockpit, as I need the weight to make CG. Plans show one of these servos going in the tail. Also, I will need at least a 2,650 mAh 3 cell in the cockpit with the 35-48 motor, to make CG.

Plenty of room in the cockpit, and just behind it. Beautiful plane. Have not flown it yet.

FWIW, test flew one of these for a buddy today (I think it was the Sport version, not sure what the difference is)

Used the MVVS motor on 4S swinging a 13x6.5.

Very nice flying model, no bad habits. Climb is good, but not in the "moon shot" category. Did have to mix some down elevator in with the throttle to control the climb better.

Only hitch was trying to enable the brake on the ESC. A brand I had never used before and no manual with us at the field.
Fiddled with it for 20 minutes and by some miracle managed to get the brake enabled. Pure luck, based on having now looked at the manual!
