Fast, few hours for someone slow, and easy. Manual very clear. Tips: add
some strong tape below the plane, all along the bottom fuselage, to make is resistant on
hard landing, or eventually crashes. Add some Servo protections. Can be build with Epoxy
or Cyano. The foam takes and accepts anything I tried, glue or painting. The space for the
servos, accepted initially only Micro-servos, like HS-55. My HS-55 broke few times, so I
decided to upgrade to HS-85. Needs to remove some foam, in order to be able to put this
bigger servo into place.

||Hand launch. Easy if battery Pack not too heavy (below 400 Gr). For a
RC2400, 9.6V, or NI-MH 3000, 9.6V, the weight is 500g and this makes it a little tough to
take off without wind. A hard push then does the job.
||With 7 cells, nice and easy, but not much stunts, unless taking speed
going down. With 8 cells, it starts to become alive, the CP-1700 does a good work for this
configuration. with 10 cells, although the flight time is short, about 2 minutes or less,
this is incredible. Take-off and vertical immediately. Will hold vertical for 10 to 20
meters (30 to 60 feet), does any stunt in the book, and flies beautifully, with
authorityl. Stalling is with no bad behavior, it will just stop climbing and will drop
altitude to get more speed.
It flies beautifully in general, with a look and feel like a real plane. It's noise is
very nice and not too strong, with twin motors.
||Nothing special, easy to land, unless you stall just near the ground
||The nose can bend, break from the rest of the fuselage. The motors
will also break from the fuselage, on very hard landing or crashes, again, Epoxy or Cyano
do good. Once crashed in a Chicken farm, with nose separated from fuselage, both motors
and foam which holds them broken apart, both props gone, and cockpit broken in 2 parts.
Repaired in less than 40 minutes.
||Foam, so Epoxy and Cyano can do anything.
||Note that the
Twinjet, equipped with only 1 strong brushless motor, flies much better,
than the twin motor version.The reason being that you can install a bigger
prop. See full review on this within the Arena,
done by Oded Mazor, or follow the direct link here
- Not too big to carry
- Can be upgraded up to brushless
- Could be stressful, if you don't have enough experience as this plane can fly quit fast
and be out of sight also (This is how it ended in the chicken farm....)
