I got into RC planes 4 or 5 years ago and this is my 5th plane (all park fliers, small electric planes you can fly in a park or even inside a big gym or smth). My previous plane was from Top Race as well (TR-C385, the Cub) and my son and I liked it so much I ordered this one. This plane is unexpectedly smaller but since it's heavier it flies faster and is a bit more difficult to control.
Just like the Cub it has 3 modes, switched by the switch on the transmitter: the easiest (gyros and servos keep the plane mostly level and it's easier to control, but you can't do too much with it), the medium (gyros and servos take the back seat and you have more control and can do some aerobatics) and the difficult (no self-correction, you have full control). Since it's 4-channel plane you can do things like roll, Immelmann, fly upside down, and other crazy stuff. On the most difficult setting controlling this thing becomes pretty difficult, especially in the wind. I noticed that it has a tendency to fall into a spin (not caused by the stall) which I have yet to figured out how to get out of - other than flip the mode to easy or even medium and it will level itself.
The battery allows for 10 to 15 minutes of continuous flight (I don't max out the throttle, keep it somewhere in the middle most of the time). The transmitter has 4 AA batteries and they last a looooong time, basically I replace them in the beginning of each season and that's it.
It's very sturdy, my son keep running it into the ground because he likes using the difficult mode, and it has yet to break anything except propeller (the plane comes with 2 spares).
Overall I'm very happy with the plane, it allowed me to spend a few of hours in the park with my 13yo son exploring and learning various tricks - and my 11yo son finally learned to control it too!
