Great Planes Pluma 3D EP ARF Indoor/Outdoor Airplane

Product Review (submitted on June 30, 2011):
Bought this plane yesterday and flew it today. It says on the box that you can build and be flying in an hour which is more like 6 hours even with my 15 years of building/ flying experience. The build time wasn't the reason I gave 4 stars. The reason I gave this plane 4 stars instead of 5 was because of the carbon wing support rods. After landing I noticed that some of the carbon wing supports had come loose. After a bit of epoxy that was quickly fixed. And YES do use 5 Min epoxy for all carbon supports. The foam safe CA will not hold. Anyways once in the air it did any trick I threw at it with ease. OH and talk about dead stick landings!!! This thing is the master of those. It just floats in like a feather and sticks like glue. No rolling or anything. (on grass of course) On concrete it'll roll, but if you use the rudder, you wont have to walk at all. Just steer and give a little throttle and it'll be at your feet shortly!

My setup:

Impulse Power Li-Po 3s 11.1v 900mAH 12C Discharge

KMS 30amp ESC

Ultrafly Frio 10 Brushless = 1050kv

APC 10 x 4.7 SF Prop

Flight Time= 20 mins

This setup will allow you to go vertical! So YES, it does have more than enough power!
