Very small lightweight and flies much better than expected! My first impression after receiving it in the mail was it was a styrofoam plate with wings. The weight ready to fly without battery is only 3 1/2 ounces and under 6 ounces using a 3S 350mah lipo. The stock kit did not have wheels or landing gear and with the foam belly I was worried about the foam getting damaged after a few landings so I fabricated a very light and low drag gear for it. It can now take off from the ground and land without prop strikes!

The prop used to test fly it today is from a Harbor Freight Yellow Bee, it worked well but I will be switching to one with more pitch to achieve higher speeds! It is very maneuverable even though it does not have ailerons. I mixed elevon and set the programming on my JR9503 to "Delta" type wing and it works and turns excellent. It is being guided by a Spektrum AR6300 and power is provided thru a chinese high RPM outrunner and 5A esc.

The kit went together easily and I am considering getting the Concorde that Nico sells.

I drive truck and this will most likely be riding along for entertainment this summer while off the clock!
