    Appearance

    I got this plane 2 weeks before Christmas, got a little over eager as it was the first plane I flew with flaps. I nosed up, stalled and hit the ground about a foot up. The repair list was as follows: Motor, motor mount, front landing gear, prop, spinner. Every time I fixed one thing, I found another. FINALLY, after Mid January, I got the plane up for a real flight. I was elated. That lasted 2 flights until a grass landing caused the plane to flip and I broke the front landing gear again. To properly repair, it appears that you are supposed to cut the plane in half? REALLY< SERIOUSLY? Cut the plane in HALF? Given it was the shock system and that the piece in the plane was intact, I was able to work the broken pieces out, and replace them. I reinforced the whole mess with foam safe CA and went for it a couple of days later. So, fourth flight was okay. Fifth flight, it got very windy, and I had to set the plane down on the grass again due to a sudden increase in wind. Once again, as soon as I hit the grass the plane flips. I bet you can guess what broke again? And this time, the whole mess tore back through the firewall. This time I was going to HAVE to cut the plane apart. Nope, not gonna do it. And sure as heck not gonna spend 60 bucks more on a fuselage given how much this money sink has cost me already.

    This plane is sharp looking and handles quite well in the air, but you darn well better be an expert at landing and for goodness sake, do not even attempt a grass landing.

    This plane is filled with poor design features. The battery compartment is on the bottom, the wings are a pain in the rear to take off, and the plane is as delicate as a butterfly. This plane needs expert tender loving care because it is completely unforgiving on landing. Oh, and the lame radio system. The entire world is moving to Spektrum or already is on Futaba and we get yet another proprietary radio system? After all the hearbreak, I decided that as soon as I needed something significant I would never buy another Hobbico product and so I bought a Spektrum DX7s with receiver in preparation for a transition to another plane once this money pit cost more money. I did not have to wait long.

    After the last landing, I stripped the carcass clean and tossed it in the trash, and ordered a T28 Trojan PNP. There could not be a greater contrast in design.
