I bought this item to use as a basic trainer, to provide flying instruction for new members of our local R/C model airplane club.
The airplane looks good and flies nice, has enough oomph to easily take off from our grass field, and is stable in the air. However, the supplied Tx/Rx (Arrows AR-06) is unsuitable for that purpose since the Tx/Rx are not compatible with any other radios, like Spektrum or Futaba. There is no provision on the Tx for a buddy box cord. There is nothing in the on-line description of the product to indicate that the radio gear is not compatible with other systems. Also, even with brand new fresh batteries in the Tx, the "low battery" alarm kept chirruping. So, I ditched the radio and installed a Spektrum 4 channel Rx. Also, I trashed the "safe" module that came with the set. IMHO, and in the opinion of all other club members who train new pilots, these "safe" modules give a newbie a false sense of their piloting skills and, actually make it more difficult for a new pilot to learn how to properly and safely fly their airplane. I also installed larger wheels to make takeoffs easier from our grass field. The manual recommends a 1300 mah/3 cell battery (one of which, with a charging module, was supplied with the set) but that only gives 4 or 5 minutes of flying time. There is enough room in the battery compartment for a 2200 mah battery which gives about 7 minutes flying time. I'm about to try a 3000 mah battery to see if I can get a 10 minute flight which I consider optimum for training a new pilot. The airplane should be able to handle the weight of batteries larger than the recommended 1300 mah battery. One more gripe: there is not enough cooling air flowing over the battery; the air vents in the cowling direct incoming air through the space below the battery compartment; after a 6-7 minute flight, the 2200 mah battery is almost too hot to handle. Clearly, there is not enough cooling air flowing over the battery with the way this airplane was designed. I plan to install a baffle to direct cooling air through the battery compartment. So, if you are willing to spend the extra bucks and the extra time and effort to deal with radio problems and design flaws, go for it. Otherwise, pass this one by and look for something else.
