Why the Citibria?! Its a nice enough looking but its not nearly different enough from the Cessna to make me consider buying another one. The Cessna already flies gloriously slow and is hilarioulsy stable.

2g of extra weight... looks like it could mostly come from the larger wings. Thoughts?

Any word on if it has a steerable tail wheel or any other improvements?

Mine (Kyosho) is actually substantially slower and even more stable than the Cessna, and will loop with ease. It's fun to have slow races with Cessnas and watch them fall out of the air as they try to crawl around the gym at the Citabria's pace.

No steerable tailwheel or other improvements that I can see, but well worth the price IMO. I put some bad video up here of mine and a couple of Cessnas.

there's an advantage to having no money and flying your(an) old man's plane.
If you crash, he's the one who fixes it. HA!

I'm 24, a student (learning to fix full size planes) with bills and I work part-time. My budget isn't much better...

I really would love to have that plane though. Maybe after my tax refund. *crosses fingers*

Go Micro or scracth built minis I'm drawing up a new F3P plane. Also I'm working on the F3P Axis. I think indoor is the new most popular thing to do. The cool thing is that I can get my F3Ps up and running for about $160. For being 13 I think that I'm having it pretty good.

Citabria's Dihedral


I think its not going to go that fast unlike the Micro Cessna. Its probelly going to just creep around the gym floor.

Looks like you got the Stryker. Yeah I got one that a mod. It goes 135mph and has unlimited vertical, it sounds like a drenell motor on steroids .

yea same here, I'm 14 and I love airplanes,and i got my first real flight lesson this Christmas working to get my license! I cant count the number of AeroAce controllers that are in my closet from broken AeroAces. And I've been wanting a Parkzone Cessna just hate spending all that money, cause being 14 means thats all the money I got, gone .
