Fun Fly Baby Review by Tom
Rating
This one is a tricky one to fly, you have to steer it, the plane does not level itself out when making aileron turns. Lands nice and slow, but take-offs are bouncy if you take off from grass. The covering is vinyl adhesive sheeting, same material electrical tape is to give you an idea. In the sun, it gets soft and spongy, unlike monokote where it shrinks and tightens in the sun. Use a light weight motor if your going electric. I put a 32 on it, 4 cell, and ended up putting the battery center over the wing. Re-glue the joints with epoxy, DO NOT USE CA, the kind of glue the manufacture used, counter-acts with it and disolves the original glue. Happy flying (Posted on 7/18/14)
