Really like the 65" range. Horizon did a great job on their 65" and will be watching where this one goes. However looking at the plane on the website it says carbon fiber package, which to me means you have to buy carbon fiber landing gear, wing tube, and tail wheel. Hmmm. You mean that is' nt stock?

I'm sure it's a nice plane. There is only 2 company's I will by airframes from. My # 1 choice is Extreme Flight and the only other is Pilot Rc. They make good planes that fly great and spare parts are avalable.

The other nice thing is this plane fills a void. There is no 20cc 3D planes available that are not profile planes. It looks nice I love the green. With a 67 inch wing and 63 inch fuse it should be great at tumbling.

Looks like a nice plane. It's about the same size as my Flex Innovations Ventique. If it flies as well as that, with similar power as the Potenza motor then it will be GREAT. Any colour butbgreen for me

Yes, but it can be more cost effective to buy from a local dealer instead due to high shipping costs.

You have not tried to deal with the Australian dealer, he is (1) almost impossible to deal with and (2) does not have any stock, I would rather pay an extra 30% shipping cost then have to deal with the guy, with the prices I have heard shipping Flysky from China the cost would be more then likely comparable!

Note: Aus dealer has now changed hands.

anyone building or flying this plane yet. they just got in at Chief, I got mine this week, wasn't expected until June. I have only gone thru the box, this is very complete ARF. Servo extensions provided, carbon landing gear, sinner, and hinges already glued on Ail. & Elv. . looks like this will build very fast. puzzled by the fact that there is no manual with the plane or one available online, or at least I can't find one. it just calls for standard servos, that's wide open. I know you can assemble the plane pretty easy without a manual but it would have been nice to have as a reference for servo choice, a CG point, or basic control throws for a starting point. Maybe Tony can chime in and give some advice. This is a very nice plane, covering has not a one wrinkle and my OS GT22 will fit just fine. wasn't planning on a build since flying season is here, might make an exception here.

Hi, I got mine last week from the dealer in Belgium. Green scheme, not the check one. I'll be using the recommended electric setup and Hitec 5645MG all around.
Here you have the manual that I got from Tony.

I had mine a week quality is shocking . Be careful if the m2 threaded rods one of mine had no threads on it . Cowl was cracked . Damage to aileron . I did email pilot rc and they have not been helpful at all . It is BASICLY built now I'm going to be using a DLE 20 .

Just double check every part .
