    Have 1 of these, does fly quite well, but not wthout problems.
    Servos good but escs & esp receiver rubbish.
    1st flight (little windy) plastic clevis
    s on wing struts seperated & on emergency landing wing twisted & tore off pylon. Fitted metal clevis`s & stronger struts & mountings, on 2nd flight went out of rc range in a small field, grounded again for new receiver.
    Since have had aileron fall off & 1 motor reverse in flight!.
    Now extensively repaired & re-named “crashalina”.
    On the plus, flys well & slows down nicely for very nice scale landings.

    • Hi Greg, sounds like my experience, though you seem to be a bit more hard-core about keeping it flying. The motor reverse in flight is nuts! Good luck with keeping it flying and don’t use the default receivers. They included a park-flyer radio with the plane which is limited to the 1000 foot range. Better just to go with one of the well known brands. Thanks for your response!
