Supposed to get to 70 degrees here Friday, I'm hoping to maiden it after work. Magnets are a good idea, but I'm gonna see how she flies fully loaded. IMO, just looks meaner in the air with the missiles and drop tanks.

I agree about the looks. Eager to hear how she does fully loaded.

You shouldn't give your GF Rc Drugs, But I got to admit that's not a bad idea
this way you can always buy 2 for 1 without all the complaining sweet!!!!

Does your GF actually fly or is that just an excuse to buy 2?

I can see how that would make things easier

My wife is very supportive, goes with me to the field, watches the kids while I fly, but she has no interest in learning how to do it.

I've bought her several planes though..... I just fly them for her....

Marry her now!

My wife just busted me for ordering this plane. It was suppose to arrive mid Monday while she was at work, but nope arrived while she was home standing on the front porch. I had to put my head in shame. She took it easy on me since she knows I have an addiction.

PKZ Habu is best edf to start with imho. Very wide flight envelope.

I haven't flown this yet though, being modeled after an airplane intentionally built unstable I would say probably say it may not be. It may be a pussy cat though. can't wait to fly and find out. Biggest difference with edfs is they don't have the instant punch like a prop plane has and since no prop wash is moving air over the surfaces they stall a lot easier.
