Volantex R/C Super Cub RTF Sport Park Flyer Airplane
4/24/17 So far very disappointed with this product. The only good thing so far was the delivery was spot on with timing. From there it just goes down hill. Though R/C planes are fairly self explanatory as far as assembly, the instructions were mediocre at best. No mention of which screws to use at what time, as well as one has to figure out half the steps due to minimal information in the manual. What should have taken no more than 20 minutes based on the amount of assembly required, this took nearly an hour to fill the gaps and constantly switching screws to different holes because of lack of guidance. Not to mention that installing the propeller is a painful process as the only way to do that is to stick a screwdriver (supplied) into the motor to "lock it" so that you can use a 3mm wrench (not supplied) to turn a locking nut on the shaft. I guess Volantex thinks the average R/C pilot has fingers like the Hulk. Eventually got it assembled and went straight to do an operational test to ensure proper connections and alignment of control surfaces. Turns out the dummy that packaged it had the elevator and rudder connections reversed, so I had to disassemble it and reassemble it again. Furthermore, the instructions do not make clear mention of the different functions of the remote, leaving one to guess. Turns out the switch up top (whatever they call the modes) switches between high and low deflection of the control surfaces, directly impacting flight performance. With it being set to the "high" mode, not knowing it was, (discovered that later), I went to an open area on a clear day with minimal wind. Needless to say that the first flight lasted all of 2 seconds as immediately after takeoff (again with deflection on high) it did a loop and nose-dove right into the pavement. So after taping the nose cowl for stability and switching out the broken propeller for the extra one they give you (queue painful propeller process), I tried another flight for another 5 seconds before the plane looped and flipped out of control again, (high deflection), and smashed the remaining propeller. I feel this plane could be loads of fun and be reasonably easy to fly had the instructions not been half in texting lingo ("pls") and half not present. I will order new propellers (back order as it seems I'm not the first with these troubles) and try again. If I have better luck the second go round, I may revise this review, if not, I'll make a second review and advise others to choose a different plane.

6/22/17 So after nearly two months, there are still no replacement parts available, and this now $100 paperweight gathers dust in my closet. Very very disappointed in both the manufacturer for poor construction and illiterate instructions, and HobbyTown for not even bothering to restock parts for a product they carry, (especially since propellers are the most likely part to be broken). Please do not purchase this kit, find another better reviewed one, and preferably from a different retailer.)

This is a great little trainer. Extremely robust and a good inexpensive first RC Plane. I have pranged mined more times than I can count - operator error - and with a little glue and tlc and she's back up in the air. Be careful to get the trim and the COG correct otherwise she has an inbuilt death wish. I've even slammed it nose first into concrete bent the prop shaft broken about 15 propellers and she's still flying.

Forget about the vague instructions you barely need them to assemble. The most difficult part of assembly is the decals which take about 20 mins on their own.

Great product which they would do more.)

Like other reviewers I agree that assembly instructions are poor. But I have come to learn after 6 RC Planes, to EXPECT poor or even erroneous instructions; and also frequent serious factory assembly errors, defective parts; loose wiring, receiver, or servo pushrod connections; pushrods that are too long to fit, etc. etc. And I've come to expect to have to figure out some assembly or troubleshooting on my own, as ALL my RC planes have been like this. I now chalk it up to being an acceptable adverse fact of mass produced inexpensive but often ultimately very high quality RC airplanes. And I've come to view it as all part of the RC adventure. And help can be found online. Since all my plane issues have been resolved through my own efforts or by seller, I accept all of this. THAT said, this plane is a great flyer; fast enough, stable but also a very sporty flyer; handles up to 5-7 mph winds; takes off and lands well-for grass take offs upgrade to 2" Du Pro Superlite tires/wheels. Not good for patchy grass landings. Turns sharp, fly's slow and glides well. Not recommended for first time flyers IMO. Very realistic appearance. Spare parts available from multiple online sources. I have and love both the 3ch brushed and 4ch brushless versions of Volantex Super Cub!)

Poor instructions small parts missing. I thought this would be a good way to ease into RC I used to build and fly wire and free flight many years ago. It turns out this may be a big turn off. Lots of warnings about safety but little real instruction and I have no idea as what to plug charger into looks like a USB but all warnings on battery charging are such I don't want to charge anywhere near my computer.)
