I just built a trainer .40 and working on a heavily modified corostar.These planes are great in my opinion for what they are.
my corostar is the best landing plane ive ever had! its been converted to electric, so that probably helps with the weight a bit. but it sets down SO smooth. its become one of my all-time favorites. i call mine "ole-blue", cause its pretty ugly, but i love it. ill never sell it. i had a bad crash awhile back, battery went dead for some reason. but it went into some small trees HARD, and there was hardly any damage. broke the prop and shuved mud into the motor and broke like 10 rubber bands for the wing to break off. took the motor apart & cleaned it out, and re-mounted a wing servo, and that was all. it pretty much did no damage to the plane. but i love the way it flys, and cant believe how it just lands itself. ill post some pics now that this thread has gotten some attention.
