“All and all good plane, very tough also”
I just wanted to say I built the eurofighter, I find it to be a good flying plane. The only thing I didn't like was the way the nose of the play always goes up every time I throttle it up. I smashed the nose in the ground couple of times landing, So I built a new nose for it and left the canards off the plane, wow what a difference. It is a whole new plane. It's faster 'more control in the wind. or at any speed. Looks like the space shuttle with the conards off. All and all good plane, very tough also. Good job Dave and Scott.

“Nose design is very durable”
The nose design is very durable on this one. I haven't really tested it yet, but I did get a few bumps here and there. I also have been using carbon rods nose to tail on the "spine" of the last couple RCP planes and that has helped. If you really want to make it a lawn dart, 2mm carbon rods from the wing to nose, in that fold channel, will give you hours of lawn darting fun!

So I'm sure you agree F1 that this plane is perfect for the beginner flier as it just floats and can actually be difficult to accidentally crash but is not for a beginning builder.

Maiden was a success! This plane is made for you hi-alpha lovers. It just floats and with that canard angled the way it is, the high alpha was spectacular, so the EDF unit was not right for the plane as I achieved maybe 35 mph. This plane is not made to break the 100mph barrier that I love. So 8 out of 10... The plane is perfect for beginning fliers and as Dave said "dial down the roll". The plane is suitable for intermediate to experienced builders. I don't recommend it for a first built plane as it involves somewhat challenging scoring and attention to detail.
The CG can be manipulated and is not sensitive. Many people go nose heavy on a maiden, I prefer tail heavy because all of my tail heavy crashes are light and limited damage occurs unlike a tail heavy crash. F1wannabe is correct about down trim. I noticed that if you balance an inch nose side the CG (at 7" from wing break) very little down trim is needed.

here “It does corner a lot better”
It performs almost as fast as the MiG-29 V2 with the SMJV2 and doesn't have that instant "punch" like the MiG-29 but it does corner alot better than the MiG. Tomorrow me and my dad will have a dog fight between the two planes to see if there is a real performance difference.
