Took it back and was told the servo was the problem, they replaced and still not luck. (Posted on 5/4/14)
- Decent trainer Review by Parent
The plane was easy to set up. The manual for the model was complete, lacking only transmitter information (see below). I felt that the center of gravity was a bit nose heavy, even with its 900mAh, 8.4v Ni-MH battery as far back in its mounting slot as possible. I suppose this helps the plane be as stable as it is.
There is NO documentation for the MeritRc MT-600 4ch 2.4GHz transmitter in the package, on the Hobby People website, or anywhere on the Internet. I would like to know how to bind the transmitter (for future use that is, it comes already bound to the receiver mounted in the plane) and how to put the transmitter into low power mode for a proper range check. I feel this to be important information and should really take another star off the rating because of it. I won't though, since I expect to be able to find the information somewhere.
If you are looking for an easy to fly, easy to assemble plane, this fits the bill. I would like better documentation on the transmitter, brushless rather than brushed motor/ESC, and LiPo rather than Ni-MH battery but perhaps they can't provide these items at this price point.

- thank you Review by Brock
- Battery? Review by Boulder Bill
Great plane for beginners. Nowhere in the description does it tell us what battery it uses. If you wish to buy backups for multiple flights what size and strength battery do you purchase. Nose needs plastic shell reinforcement (or coat with epoxy) (Posted on 3/1/13)
