We'll see - I just got mine and I'll be flying it very shortly. Looks very nice, and a quick YouTube search show some nice flying.

Good luck, keep us updated after the maiden.
I have always wondered why they are selling them so cheap.
I heard that hand launches are a nightmare.

Well, flew it today just before lunch. Hand launch was uneventful - climbed away very nicely. It doesn't have 1:1 thrust but most of my larger jets don't either. It will easily climb steeper than 45 degrees though. Cruises around nicely at half throttle, flies well slowly, and moves along quickly at full throttle. There was a bit of wind which didn't present any problems. Fun little jet!

Its an insanely fun little jet but its insanely fragile. The vert stab should be reinforced, the wings from the fuse to beyond the ailerons on the leading edge should be reinforced as well. The stock esc can handle 3s packs for an added bit of fun fun plane that performs well in all areas.
