Review by: TonyNice model
This is a great model, and I'd give it five stars save for the fact that (a) the build instructions are not good, basically a 'work it out yourself', which is OK as it's pretty easy, but a little more guidance would have been good; (b) I spent a lot on a really light geared motor but the balance was pretty way off, despite using super light tail servos and lightweight wiring, I had to add 60g of lead to the nose to balance it out with a 1000mA 3S battery; (c) the kit is made in Russia so I'd guess they will struggle to survive the collapse in business and anyway spares will be impossible I'd imagine. That said it does fly beautifully and goes up on light thermals nicely. It's very benign in its flying characteristics and climbs steeply even under half power, it also has good penetration for when the wind gets up a bit. Lastly despite the added weight it flies at 960g, which is pretty good. It's great for travelling as well. I used the Powerline Micro motor and YGE ESC. Service from Hyper flight excellent.
Review by: PONTAPay attention to the weight of the tail
KST X06H was used for the tail servo. I made it as specified using the Harness included in the kit, but it became a little tail heavy. It's a shame that this result was achieved despite the fact that the motor uses the Powerline Micro 1025/10, which weighs 102g. As a result, I couldn't use the planned 1000mA / h, so I changed the battery to 1500mA / h and installed a Futaba current and altitude sensor near the nose. The flight weight has increased to 1150g, but the performance is excellent and the brakes with huge flaps are powerful and have no habit. The flight performance is not significantly defeated by rivals. The appeal of this aircraft is that it can be stored compactly and that it has high fighting power despite its reasonable size.
Review by: FrankWhat a pleasant transaction!
What a pleasant transaction, delivered immediately after bank transfer to Germany . Really a marvelous model, easy to build no flight experience till now but looking forward next days.
Review by: GSTravel Adventure
Flight report for the Travel Adventure....Finally finished the ship last month...On the first flight everything was spot on...Incredible hang time and goes up in the lightest of thermals....It goes up well at 1/3 to 1/2 throttle with a direct drive motor spinning a 10X6 propeller on a 3 cell 1300mah lipo...Michelle, my girlfriend, flies it well...It's her Birthday present!!
Review by: Stuart McIntyreExcellent High Performance go anywhere F5J
I have one of these straight from the factory in St Petersburg. Excellent performance. With all up weight at just over 1,000g. Easy set up and packs down into a archery backpack to yomp wherever you want to fly. Gives you a competitive F5J machine and a go anywhere sport machine in one. I love it.
