Welcome to the addiction!

Get a flatty and see what its about. Their aren't any edge arfs or kits on the market right now that are worth a crap BUT get a mojo or primo kit to build while you fly an arf from value hobby, either the sabre 35 or 47. These are the ONLY profile arfs that are worth a crap.

Ding Dong, the Primo is dead. It had a short, rough life. It took a fall about a month ago, which resulted in fairly minor damage and was repaired in a couple of evenings. Took it out again last Thursday morning. It took off nicely, seemed to fly OK for about ten seconds, and then... no control. It went down with a loud craaack in the woods. I suspect some sort of electronics failure. In any case, it's a goner. I stripped the parts and trashed it.

No great loss. I somewhat enjoyed building it, but this plane wasn't really my style. It's built for nitro power and is about twice as heavy as it needs to be.

Its great for either nitro or E. just keep the tail like and move the tail servos up a bay. G32 with a 4s right behind a slightly extended firewall and it'll be lighter than nitro and CG shouldn't be a problem then.

Hope you try another of swanys or frizbee's Probro kits.

Sorry to hear about that! At least you got to fly yours. Mine never made it past the skeleton stage.
