Anyone fly a Watt-Age Sky Wizard?

Debates about its suitability as a trainer aside, has anyone out there actually tried one? How well does it build/fly/survive mishaps?

I know the limitations of the TX, but does it come with standard RX and servos? At this price, the radio at least would be salvageable for a boat or something if it's not a proprietary setup.

Maybe I should just ask Santa for one for my own evaluation...

These little guys are on 27mhz so they do not interfere with the "big guys". This keeps beginners from really making everyone angry! So actually, you could use it in a boat.

The servos are regular, individual servos. They are about the same size as the Cirrus CS-20

We carry all the replacement parts.

I had good success training my Nephew how to fly with it. He had car experience but no airplane experience. He liked it. He's 18.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

can the servos be plugged into a normal rx, I think it would be great for my nephew and I'm planning on getting a new radio for next summer. So would a normal radio be adaptable with a feather or similar rx???

The wiring on the plug is in the futaba/jr/hitec, etc. wiring order. Will plug into a feather with no trouble.

I have used the servos in Hawks and Sporty's with no trouble. Hitec 555 rx was used.

I think someone mentioned this before, but all the parts are available too so if you want to just get the parts, you can.

Absolutely, 27 MHz is authorized for air and surface RC craft.

As for information, a review is currently in the works and should be published shortly.
