- One of my favorite micros so far but... Review by JeffieTheCobb
I've also the Hobbico Micro Super Cub I bought about 4 months ago and still fly it even though I've crashed it more times than I can remember.
If you're patient and determined you'll always get these planes back into the air after a crash.
The Albatros is probably my favorite to fly so far. If you've a light head wind you can cut the throttle, go full up on the elevator and fly it like a kite. Personally I think it handles better than the Super Cub.

- fun plane Review by travis
- Flys great but too delicate Review by larryjm
The downside is I broke a couple of props landing in the grass and had to special order their replacements. On top of that the props were an absolute pain to change. The shaft on the motor is the thickness of a skinny paper clip and you have to pry off the old prop and sqeeze on the new one without breaking it. Also the wing is very flimsy.
For $79 there has to be something less flimsy and more robust. Because of this, I can't recommend it. (Posted on 2/2/11)
- Great Flyer Review by Tony
I flew at an empty baseball field and took off first time from the infield and did some touch-in-goes, then a couple of loops. This little plane is a blast to fly.
Oh... one more thing, if you do fly at a park make sure there are no dogs around. Had one chase my plane for awhile. Good thing I was able to keep the plane airborne and in control until "fido" quit. (Posted on 1/21/11)
