I have the 1.60 glow version with a 50cc gasser on it and its just a great flying plane and just was waiting for a decent EP ultimate, I had the Ultrafly Ultimate but I dont care for foamies. I pre-ordered one of these, hope I'm not disappointed. Larry

It has potential maybe.

The cubic wing loading is the same as the ExtreemFlight Extra 300. Thats not bad at all.

If its anything like the Yak 54 they have out, its a nice sport type flyer but definately not the same as the Extreme Flight, new Hyperion, 3D HobbyShop, or PA birds. Great looking, but pony up for the above mentioned planes and you wont be disappointed. Just my opinion.

I wish that they had this 6 months ago, it would have saved me a lot of time building my own bipe.

It is a little small, but it looks very nice!!
big ailerons ,lots of rudder and elevator, solid looking harrior and flat spin. would have ben nice to see a little more 3D, but the precision looked good to me.

Where is Kyle when you need a video to sell something, good wright up in July Backyard Flyer

Has anyone ordered one yet?

I pre-ordered one and it was shipped on the expected release date. I had some unexpected things come up and I haven't started assembly yet. I did remove it from the box and it looks great. I hope to start assembly this evening. I did have the Ultrifly Ultimate and if it flys as good as it did I will be happy, its about the same size so I'm happy with the size of it. The wing span on a bipe will be smaller as compared to a mono wing plane. If you need a larger bipe consider going to a .40 glow version. Larry
