After reading some of the reviews here I decided I had to offer my own. The reviewers who write "unresponsive" and "poor build quality" are way off in my opinion. For weighing in around 4 oz. all up weight, this little plane is absolutely amazing.
Yes this plane will break if you're careless and slam it hard into the ground or hit obstacles with it. It's an RC plane, not a tank.
Even if you break a part on the plane it's made of expanded polyolefin (EPO) which takes high-temp hot glue e[More…]

I bought this plane because its advertised being durable , flexable ...dont worry if you crash it...I watched several videos where they show on purpose crashing it and it does no damage ...
So I bought it, I even pd 22.00 for shipping to get it faster...It crashed on my first attempt to fly it ...it wasnt even 30 feet in the air. The nose split wide open where they glued it together and the little servo board broke off the chassis and it never flew again...They advertise this falsely.. [More…]

Got this as a gift....never got it up in the air. It was missing a gear on one of the servos...went out and bought a sky surfer instead.

I'm fairly experienced and found this plane to be extremely unresponsive. And as others have mentioned, it has workmanship issues as well. So all in all, it's a poor build of a poor design. I wouldn't recommend it.

Upon receiving the plane I opened the package and read thru the instructions. I charged the provided battery with the provided battery charger,assemble the plane,and then plugged the battery into the plane. The plane immediately started smoking. I ripped the battery out but the damage was already done. Now I have to c[More…]

I purchased this plane awhile back and it has been nothing but a dream to fly, for a beginers glider it it fantastic one to own. It's actually made by Nine Eagles with A Cox branded name. I have had my fair share of hard belly landings and on occasion a nose dive and this little guy has surprised me with its durability. A little tail heavy I used a 500mah 2S and the CG has been dead on so far. Anyone looking to get into RC flying should not look past this one, excellent for any beginer. Highly r[More…]
