This thing is awesome, my only issue with mine was the paint machine got the lines wrong around the cockpit xD! A little hand paint fixed that np. I've more than got my money's worth from all the enjoyment this gives me to fly. Intermediate mode is by far my favorite mode, it's very agile! The plane is good enough to fly at a friend and pull away quick when they duck at the last second on intermediate mode. Get some experience then gain altitude and try advanced to ease yourself into the hard stuff. Take your time and just enjoy flying this awesome RC! I've had hummingbirds, hawks, pigeons, and even an entire squadron of barn swallows chase this thing haha. Hitting the gas and losing them all is super fun. Only broke 1 prop so far, but it was my own fault for flying like a maniac into the tree. Remember this tip save the prop most of the time; dedicate to the crash and turn off the power to the engine before it hits anything. You will thank me later ^^/!
