It flys fantastic,it's made of 3mm zepron foam and uses elevons no rudder it dosn't need it.It is fully controlable in a hover without it and is a blast to fly. For power it uses the A drive and GWS gear and a pair of lithium polys.AUW is140 grams and the carbon fiber rod makes it super strong. At 29.95 I think it's a good value. Mike

Hi matthew,
I can't tell you exactly but I have flown it in very small spaces.
I flew it at a club meeting in a space about 15' to 20' sq.w/ a
7' ceiling so it fly pretty slow.

Hi all,

Do you have the span and length handy? Don't worry, I'm not gonna copy it, just want to know how big/small it is. Thanks!
