It´s fun and has good appearance, but the quality is poor. It is superbly fast, very nice scale, but the retractable landing gear breaks easily, servo screws are loose, and the fuselage paint sticks to your hand. You can do amazing maneuvers and the plane flies very well with wind. It is highly resistant to a moderate crash.
I recommend it to intermediate and advanced pilots
When I purchased this plane, I couldn't wait to get it out to the field. I did all the preliminary checks and inspected all the surface controls. The maiden flight was ambiguous due to elevator control likes a little down (even with CG in correct place). I was lucky to land it. Second flight, I was taxing out and starting to take off. The landing gear collapsed and the plane caught on fire in the engine compartment. ESC fried. Still waiting today to get a 30 amp ESC. I've had the plane for 4 months and only flown it 4 times total. Finally ordered and installed my own ESC and new landing gear to replace the wish-bone peice that broke, and then it broke again. I folded up the landing gear into the bays and permanently closed them up. I installed my own wire (Static) landing gear. Also, when the ESC burned up, it took out part of the motor, so I replaced the motor with a different one. The motor was a dog anyways. I've had this plane up 4 times as of today, and now the paint is starting to wear off.
What a great looking plane, I could not wait to receive it. Shortly after assembly I went to field for the maiden flight. The first landing was a perfect approach the landing gear on this plane is the cheapest landing gear ever,after a perfect aproach the main piece of the landing gear broke, I could not believe it, the worst part about it they don't have parts released. After four weeks of no parts they still dont have them(available end of oct.) still none. I can not beleive you sell a plane before you sell replacment part this is the last time I ever try Flyzone. Thanks for your true colors!!!!!!!!!
As the previose reviewer, had issues with landing gear falling apart. CA glue fixed that I think, as due to gear up landing after wheel departed on takeoff I have not been able to fly it again as prop and adapter has been on back order since Dec 16, 2011. I' am so diapointed. Aircraft is great looking and the few times I've flown it, although challenging , flies well.(I've only been in the hobby about six months) I will not purchase any model without checking parts availability first in the future. (Hobby Zone has tried to help, but the problem is with Flyzone, Hobbico)
