As it is a Dynam plane, assembly was extremely easy and there is lots of space in the fuse for the wiring and battery. I really like how Dynam always makes sure there is plenty of space inside the plane for your electronic setup.

She did waver a little in the air, like she was a boat going over some rough water or something. I fond that even a full throttle she would still sink down, so obviously nose heavy. Put in a little up elevator on the trim to help compensate but she is definitely nose heavy (better than tail heavy on a maiden!). This is certainly the hardest plane Iíve had to fly, due to the wing type when you start a roll she wants to keep going on her own, so I flew her very gentle and scale like to trim out the rest of her. I did some very nice clean passes, she tracks amazingly well! Landing was much cleaner than I thought itíd be. I figured I might have some issues landing being nose heavy, but I got her down perfectly with no nose over at all, Iíll thank the previous owner for that as he raked the gear forward a little. While I didnít get any pictures flying, hereís a few from the bench showing off the nice custom paint job and weathering.
