It does require a computer radio with mixing and servo control curves, to see what is involved in the radio set up please watch the attached video and also the one for the setting up of the parafoil itself.

There is a high level of prefabrication so assembly time is minimal and it is Plug-N-Fly so all you require is your own transmitter, receiver, and battery. The Paramotor is fitted with a powerful 3530-1400KV brushless motor swinging a 10 x 4.7 propeller, it also has a 50 amp electronic speed controller with 5 amp BEC and 2 powerful 15kg high torque metal geared servos. A 3S lipo battery is recommended and it can vary in capacity to suit different flying conditions. The recommended flying weight is 1.6~2.0kg, in light wind conditions it is...Continue Reading

This is my Unboxing and Preliminary Review for the Freewing L-39 Albatros 80mm EDF Jet.

Freewing L-39 Albatros 80mm EDF Jet Unboxing & Review (9 min 36 sec)

Here are the Pros & Cons for this 80mm EDF Jet:

Pros:
- It is a big EDF jet. Bigger than I anticipated.
- Nice Flaps
- Really bright LED lights
- Robust landing gear suspension & nice main wheels
- It has very nice battery option flexibility

Cons:
- The paint overspray is a con to me, but overall the paint is well done on this plane along with everything else.
