For a total AUW of 770g and a wing loading of 32g/dm2? I think the Busy Bee can carry more weight, but obviously you can´t expect the same bahaviour.

I´ll know it for sure in the next weeks, because I´m in contact with the manufacturer to order this week


BTW, there´s a version with ailerons and another without. I guess the pics of the wing with more dihedral are the 3ch version. Does anyone know it for sure?

Does Hobby-Lobby allow you to choose the TX,RX channel? If not what 72Mhz channel do they ship?

Another question that comes to mind is how does it handle in windy conditions, 10 mph winds and greater?
