No probs wow, damn wish we had snow that was closer than a 11 hour drive...

Yeah I like the looks of the Sky Surfer, If it's anything like the AXN Floater I have, both you and your son will have a ball. Great all round fun and easily repaired in the event of a "ooooops". I'm not sure if it applies to the Sky Surfer, but I found by upping the weight with a bigger Battery Pack My floater copes well with wind and flies quicker throttle off than with the smaller pack. May be worth investigating.

Cheers.. Mark

Just flew the sky surfer and WOW this thing has great big gobs of power. Climbing happened so quick I was amazed. Powered glider I guess so loops and rolls easily. My son flew it no problem. I managed to jam it into the ground while doing an inverted fly by. This thing is tough slammed it into the ground and was back in the air minutes later. This plane will take off at one third throttle with ease. At full throttle it climbs out wicked fast. Just cant say enough about how nice this plane is to fly. Extremely stable at slow speed and high speed as well. I know its a powered glider but it really hauls butt. Best thing is it was only $139.00 fantastic value thanks Banana Hobby this plane has really exceeded our expectations.

James and I flew his plane about five times yesterday it flew great. I would apply full power for 10 or 15 seconds and glide for a minute or so. Landing was easy just required a little more space because of really good glider traits. We're supposed to get eighteen inches of snow tonight so flying will be on hold for a little bit. Taped a small led flash light to the nose looked awesome and flew just as well.
