Flite Test Simple Storch Speed Build Electric Airplane Kit (1460mm)
Pros:
- The kit was well cut
- included everything I need

Cons:
- the tutorial for building it is spread across two videos (one for the power pack, one for the airplane) and they often conflict. For instance, the power pod video tells you to put landing gear on the pod, but the airplane video tells you to attach them directly to the fuselage. So you kinda have to watch both all the way through before building anything just so you know what parts to listen to and what parts to disregard. It took a LOT of time and that was frustrating.
- the metal rods meant for the landing gear do NOT fit the use case well. They are thick and hard to bend and what's more, they're hardened. Therefore, instead of bending the rods just broke! This is very frustrating because now I need to buy more rods and it felt like the speed build kit was just a waste of money

Flite Test Simple Storch Speed Build Electric Airplane Kit (1460mm)
My son bought this for me, It is the first plane that I have flown and landed in one piece. Im going to share what I have learned about it so others can use the info if they choose, 1 ditch the 10x4.7 slow fly props that come with it and get the apc 10x5e props, 2 if you can do it put a rudder/aileron mix it will turn much nicer than yank and bank. 3 the 2200 mah batteries only give about an 8 to 10 min flight, my son runs a turnigy 5000 mah battery and flies twice as long with a g10 motor and a 10x7 prop. I am going to start running 2 2200mah batteries in parallel for longer flights. It is a great plane and I will be flying it for a long time.
