This thing is easy to put together, (I had to adjust the servo on the ailerons as they were off, easy enough to do).
The brushless 350 motor puts down plenty of power ! Even with the slower 4-prop, (intended for scale flights), this thing can climb with ease. Slap on the 2-prop, and this thing flies fast with virtually unlimited climb.
The roll rate is under 1-second from holding the Ailerons wide open, to the time it takes for a full roll over. Plenty snappy.
I achieved roughly 8-10mins of flight on a single full charge, running around 55-65% power most of the flight.
The only downfall I found, was that on the Tail Rudder Push-Rod, the threads were too fine for the plastic Clevis and I was unable to rotate it enough, with enough bite left, to zero the rudder. (A thin layer of dried super glue on the threads provided enough bite to rotate the Clevis enough).
I'd give it an Intermediate on the scale of Beginner/Intermediate/Veteran.
Over-all. I rate a 5/5 for this scale of a Low Wing Warbird. It's a blast to fly, controls very predictably, and for the money, it's an amazing value.)
Cons: Locating spare parts. Locating spare battery this size. Right wing was bent a little at the tip, straight out of the box. The elevator screws dont give the elevator a real snug fit, I added some clear tape for backup. You have to watch the battery cover latch especially if you belly land for it will come unlatched. Did I already mention parts and spare batteries?
All in all it is a decent plane especially for park flying and belly landing, I would purchase again.)
