    They are small, and very quick, just be ready for it. Should have stability built into the board so it should fly really well. Congrats on the kit, can't wait to see it in the air!

    Start off with them on 70 and you might even want to add in about 25 to 30% expo just to help tame it down, especially on the elevator. If that one is like the micros I have flown, the elevator is way over sensitive. But once you get it in the air and get it trimmed out, they are an absolute blast to fly!!!

    I would say we need video, but these things are incredibly hard to capture on camera lol.

    Yea, for the size they are very fast and very quick. But, you didn't say you crashed it so I'm guessing all is well.

    Well didn't crash but flipped it over landing,grass was a bit long for its tiny wheels lol,probably better taking landing gear off and belly landing,very pleased for first fixed wing flight ever!
    BTW that meat looked good

    If you have grass to land on, yes, take those landing gears off. Much softer than flipping it because of the gears. Don't feel bad, I have flipped 30" planes landing in grass. Broke a rudder on one of them.

    And that Brisket was fantastic! Somehow, we are still eating on it lol.

    did you get the BL kind? I have it on order at my local hoby shop as well. I will get it soon. The BL version I have heard has tons of speed and really fun to fly even in the wind..

    Hi,it's very fast too fast for my first fixed wing!,yes it is the brushless version,fast but I'm finding it manageable,I think flying helicopters has helped,don't low how much different it makes but I bought the eflite ,280 mah
