caseMasterxL - Rating: 5 of 5 Stars! Tuesday, October 08, 2013
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 extremely well. The only issues I had was the elevator hinge broke when I cart-wheeled a landing. Some tiny bits of packaging tape on the upper and lower hinge section fixed it and required a small trim adjustment. For beginner pilots it's necessary to fly in very calm conditions at first. After getting the hang of this plane in calm conditions and understanding its stall characteristics, I am able to toss it up in 10mph winds and fly it around with amazing control. The control surfaces are only the rudder and elevator. The slight dihedral in the main wing portion and the moderately curved up wing tips make this thing very stable even in wind. I was a little skeptical that the tiny brushed motor wouldn't have enough push for wind, but I was happily surprised. Plenty of power out of that 12mm diameter by 20mm long brushed motor. In calm conditions with light throttle use you can expect up to 15 minutes on the 250mAh battery that's included. I added an E-Flight 430mAh battery with the JST plug already installed and I can get nearly 30 minutes with light throttle use. In windy conditions with almost constant full throttle the stock battery run time diminishes to about 8-9 minutes, which is still amazing. It's a great little "everything included" starter for any age pilot. I have advanced to 4 channel park sized planes and I still bring the Sky Cruiser to the field every time I go out. It's just a fun plane with very straight-forward flight behavior and an amazingly large flight envelope for being such a small lightweight plane.
