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.

....I rather like it (but then, I'm always more concerned about visibility in the sky than what it looks like on the ground)...

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