Hi Mazon,

I have seen one still in the box last week. It is certainly a good-value-for-money model. It is a foam core balsa sheeted wing model. The fuse is fibre glass. The finishing is good and the construction seems very reliable, except may be the spar system. For a model of over 2m, I would say its spar (5mm carbon rod?) is a bit under spec. Anyway, I haven't seen one flying yet, so I can't tell you how it performs.

It is certainly a good flyer in the sky, lifting for the plane is good and easy to control. Loop, roll & inverted are just as good as those expensive plane. Several of my friends owns this plane and all their quality is good. A value for money!

However, if you are looking for a speedy plane that can sustain the pressure of deep dive and capable of making fast & sharp turns, this won't be the correct choice then.

Hope this could help!
