It indeed looks nice.. I'd be interested to know if it has one single wing, or 2 wing-halfs.. As it is not a super small plane...

Hi Dutch,

Yes, very good point about the wing.

BTW, I enjoy viewing your videos and find them very informative.

I really do not know if I'm going to order his one though.. It does look good, but it's allso a bit on the big side for my airstrip...

Yes, I can understand that.

I really like the style of the model but prefer to read some feedback from the first brave soul to do a test/review before I part with my money.

My flight test vid...really happy with the result. I rarely get a model I can fly low and aerobatic like this on the second circuit of the first flight! Great fun.

Man she looks great. That elliptical wing is a thing of beauty.

I've got a G46 laying around somewhere. I may just have to get one of these. I've been missing a general sport plane since I gave my Pulse 15e away.
