This is a slick and fast little airplane. It can also handle fairly slow flying but it's in its own between one half and full throttle if you're flying outdoors. I took the landing gear off of mine and hand launch it then land in the grass.
If you're a newbie or first time flyer, the transmitter has a dual rate function that will come in handy for you. Move the right joystick to the middle of it's travel (or just let it center itself on its own) then push it down and you'll hear and feel it click, that changes the TX to dual rate (DR). When in dual rate the red LED will constantly blink on and off. When in normal mode the LED is on constantly.
Dual rate slows the movement of the aileron, rudder and elevator and inhibits the total movement of the control surfaces about 30%. When you feel you're ready for the full servo travel and response time, push the right joystick down and that will return 100% of the reaction time and movement back to the joysticks.
The more the you move the pushrods toward the top or innermost holes on the control horns (elevator and rudder) the more responsive it is. When you've gotten used to the airplane, move the pushrod inside the fuselage on the aileron bell crank for a faster roll rate. Move it to the right (or innermost hole) and you'll really have an airplane that can do some fantastic 3D manuevers.
I cut the decals on the right hand side of the airplane with an Exacto knife leaving the decals on the left side to act as a hinge. You'll also need to cut the tape on the top of the fuselage near the forward tip of the vertical stabilizer to open the plane up to access the aileron bellcrank.
Lift the top wire of the aileron pushrod with hemostats or needle nosed pliers to lift the 90 degree wire out of the bellcrank then slide it over to the inner hole. There's a long straight wire on the bottom of the aileron pushrod that keeps pressure on the 90 degree top wire so it won't come loose from the bellcrank hole.
Any time I have to open up the fuselage I use 2 inch clear packing tape to seal the halves back together. I pull off about a 3 inch piece of tape and stick about 1/4th of an inch to the edge of a flat surface and let it hang there while I cut the pieces that are needed.
I then hold the bottom of the tape with tweezers and cut off a piece about 1/2 inch high by 2 inches wide. I use this piece to tape the forward section of the fuselage (in front of the wings) back together. When retaping the fuselage, don't forget the strip on top in front of the vertical stabilizer.
The reason I use the tweezers is because that way you don't leave fingerprints on the tape which looks kind of cruddy plus the tape doesn't stick as well with the oils from your fingers on it.
When I moved my aileron pushrod to the inner hole, the next flight I made I put the TX in DR mode just to be on the safe side. When I got to altitude (about 50 feet) I clicked back to normal mode during flight to test the new aileron movements. It rolled a lot faster and even did snap rolls then!
Hope the tips helped.
This airplane was the fastest, quickest one that I owned of the Parkzone/Eflight micro class. That is until I bought the new Pole Cat, but that's different story.... ; - )
