I'm sure it'll be a good flier, but it's not as good looking as the 1.2. They could have at least shaped the wing tips a bit rather than just leave them squared off. That's an easy mod though. The 1.2 just has a little more style. Still, for $111, it's a reasonable deal.

I agree, the old speedo has nicer lines, but the new version has a heavier layup.

I'm not sure I like how far forward the pushrod exits are. Similar to the R2 Raptor, so much room for flex/play...

With as few choices that exist in this category and price point...I think you have to have realistic expectations and expect to do a few things to get it sorted for our individual needs.
No ARF is perfect...and for a tick over a hundred bucks...I'm going to go ahead and order it.

Looks like no dihedral which is good but why not full span ailerons for better flapperon effect?
