It is very easy to fly and with that thick wing it it can fly really slowly and can land at a fast walking pace.

I added some additional scale detail which also helps in the cooling of the motor, ESC and batteries in the form exhaust outlets, and supercharger cooler outlets. I also added the gun barrels and since these photos were taken I have added some weathering.

With gentle flying and a few large loops and barrel rolls thrown in to spice things up I can easily get 15 minutes of flying out of the LiPo's.

All in all a great plane to fly, looks good with no vices and the slow speed handling is superb!

I am now on my second plane as the 1st one cart wheeled after I lost all control :o(
Never really found out the reason why all control was lost.

I have fitted a sound system from Benedini on this second one which reproduces the start up, running, throttling and shutdown sounds of the real Pratt and Whitney R2800 radial engine. It's not very loud but it does add a certain effect.

I have also removed the strake on the fin to replicate the full size "No Guts, No Glory"
