Take the time to build and adjust the plane right. Dont get in a hurry with that plane.

That's a great little plane right out of the Box. I like the way the battery is secured and that it takes anything from the 1300 mAh 3cell that it comes with up to a 2200 (maybe more, but that's the biggest we tried so far). all you need to do is to lengthen the velcro strap and put a foam spacer in fron to the battery to adjust CoG. You can also get a lot more performance out of it with a different prop. The factory installed ESC is a little weak for that, but easily replaced.

AsSoulsDream: I've had nothing but positive experiences with my BF109 Fun fighter, went together flawlessly, flew straight from flight one and when I misjudged a turn one time I plowed it right trough a Furrow planted with potatoes and all it got was dirty. You will want to balance the prop and spinner, since theyr'e not all that precisely manufactured, but all I had to do was swap the parts orientation around until i got close.
I also have the F4U corsair funfighter and that's a whole 'nother story the hatch was bent so much I couldn't make it fit as it was, had to cut loose the canopy and re-glue it while the hatch was on the fuselage. Still, the aft of the fuselage was rather wobbly, so I haven't flown it yet. I plan to take a slice of the canopy and glue it to the rear fuselage, so that it'll become more rigid.
I hope the F4F takes more after the BF 109 than it does after the Corsair.

12 planes in 12 months?
That's a lot of stuff for just one year.
I still haven't flown the dogfighter i bought in 2011 and I'm currently 1 month in on the twinstar I bought for christmas.

well I am what my wife calls "Obsessed" and I already have about 10 or 12 planes that are able to fly just need to charge the battery

I would like to know how the Corsair belly lands. I have to land my fun fighters in a less than ideal mowed down hay field. Been thinking about the Corsair for a while, just concerned about the landing.

I know what you mean AsSoulsDream. I have 9 planes and all my wife ever says is { Why do you have so many planes when you can only fly one at a time?} Well just because I want to, I say.
