This was my first RC plane. I chose this model mostly for price as I wanted to be sure I would enjoy the experience before diving into something more advanced. The plane is a foamy and came ready to fly as described, all that was required was batteries for the controller. The battery came with an initial charge that lasted for a little over 15 minutes. After a full charge the battery lasted for around 25 minutes.
As for how it flies, the plane is very light and is ideal for calm days. The weather include more than a breeze on the second day I flew the plane which contributed to a higher altitude flight than I was initially planning. The rudder controls worked great and I had no problems controlling the plane in a loiter. The elevator controls are a little light out of the box. And the video transmission works well and fast. Excellent plane
