This is the second one I have owned, the first being totalled after lifting off without sufficient speed on the ground (a severe lesson for me in progressing from a foamy to balsa). Get the speed up and use half flaps and no problems. Flies like it is on rails. Have 32 motor installed. The landing gear suspension works well and some rough landings have resulted in snapping the rubbers that activate it (replaced by similar sized O rings and works ok) 58 flights now, so I think the worst is over!
Stong, sturdy, looks great, recommended!
Looks great, flys like it looks

Really nice quality fit and finish. Flys beautifully, especially landing. The OS 3825-750 is a good alternative to the Power 32 (4S 13x6.5). Worth considering changing the elevator pushrods and tail bracing to 2mm carbon rod to save weight behind the cg. Spektrum A5040 servos are the same case as the recommended JR MN-48 / E381 and a lot stronger and faster. Price at first glance seems a bit steep, but the construction materials and quality are a good cut above some cheaper brands. And it looks great in the air and on the flight line. Enjoy!
