- Bad product Review by Ricardo628
- Very fun plane to learn on (and more probably!) Review by Morkmork
A friend of mine and I consider this our first plane because the other didn't end in any actual flight time at all.
This has been so much fun to fly with that it is in the car ALL the time and my friend helped me attach a cheapy camera to it to take videos!
It has been smashed into MANY pieces and just glues (and tapes) back together and flies again :)
Thank you HP! (Posted on 6/5/13)

- A cool plane, but have your duct tape ready Review by My Dogs Are Lazy
- Lots of fun Review by Rich
Recycled an old Tatic 2.4 gig radio that came out of something else. This version of the plane uses the old style futaba connectors though - the ones with the tabs on them from 15 years ago - very odd but there must be a reason. You can shave the tab(s) off or use an older receiver (The Tactic uses the tabs also so it wasn't an issue).
Plenty of power with the brushless motor and supplied lipo. Truly fun to fly at the school yard. Loops, rolls, no problems. Little charger works great also. Wing is two piece so it fits in the trunk easily. Prop hub/driver could run more "True", but isn't an issue.

- begineers delight Review by donutbob
- Great 4ch plane for beginners. Review by Steve
- Great Flier Review by ron5oh
Today I went to our local park (soccer field size) by myself.A light 5 to 7mph breeze would pass by frequently but was not consistent. The first 2 launchess at 1/3 throttle ended in light tumbles which lightly damaged the nose and required some repositioning of the main wing.I learned that a good full throttle launch is what is required and REALLY allowed some quick gains in altitude to the point that made me anxious. That 3rd flight ended with a tumbling landing that damaged the nose a little more and required main wing repositioning. The 4th launch was successful resulting in 2 good laps flying at a comfortable 100'...the landing was smooth (no tumbles or wing re-positioning needed). I put 6 more flights with no more than 1 lap for each since I really wanted to make sure I can land without problems. For my 1st day out with this plane, I call it successful since the plane is in 1 piece. The battery which I used had more capacity than what is included (2200mah 20c vs 1500 12c). It is a little bit more heavy, but I wanted to make sure I had enough juice to fly. I used a hobby people 2.4ghz radio which is adequate. I plan on reinforcing the nose with epoxy. I should have reinforced the nose prior to flying but I'm not sure if that would have resulted in a more severe breakage elsewhere on the fuselage.
After a few more hrs with this plane, I feel I can teach the basics of rc flight to my 8 yr old. This plane is definitely forgiving enough to learn with.
I'd give it 4.5 star if that was a choice only because of the week nose. If this plane could have endured those light tumbles unscathed, I would have given this 5 stars for sure. (Posted on 3/15/12)
- Great aileron trainer Review by Wingnut
Mine has been crashed in at least a dozen spectacular ways and it still flies great with NO parts needing replacement ( it does have a bit of glue here and there)
Highly recommended!! (Posted on 2/29/12)

- no power to fly Review by Bob from LA
I bought this for my kid for his birthday for a starter RC plane, the HP salesguy highly recommended it, it had zero power to fly 20 feet, no power at all, it couldn't supports its own weight, complete waste of money and time.
I pretty much bought a $100+ glider because the engine couldn't keep it in the air (Posted on 12/28/11)
