This plane has the ability to fly slow or fast. It can keep up with the Parkzone T28 Trojan. I like the fact that it has a 12-minute flight time. It's an intermediate-level plane that flies without any bad tendencies. Just make sure you make your turns as flat as possible and try not to bank too steeply, or it will tip stall if you do not have enough speed during a banking turn. Landings require a lot of skill on this plane, as it must be flown all the way down to the ground. A bad landing will result in a tip stall, or a bad oscillating skip-skip-skip-skip-skip, which might result in damage to the landing gear, tail, or prop. It can fly in 10 mph winds with a skilled pilot.
‣ Probably the most scale Cherokee variant on the market ‣ Easy to fly ‣ Very long flight times. Capable of 15-20 minute flights with the stock 2s 1300 ‣ Batteries are cheap (If you're not using the eFlite packs, at least) ‣ Looks fantastic in the air
‣ Lands a little hot. Can be resolved by adding flaps, which is very easy to do.
‣ The foam is soft and easily damaged. Especially the nose forward of the wing saddle.Expect to break the nose at the firewall. ‣ Replacement foam parts are outrageously expensive ‣ Cowl is very thin and paint chips off very easily. No primer? ‣ Very little space for electronics. ‣ The white glue it's built with at the factory sucks. It's horrible. Epoxy the plastic joiners on the wing and fuselage...
On maiden flight, nose broke where the cowl meets the fuse. Ran out of airspeed. Glued it up with UHU POR and he's flying again. Gave 4 stars as I noticed the ESC that comes with it is not good. Throttle comes on only at the 3rd click on my throttle stick. No stick calibration fixed it coz I tried. I guess this is one component cost was cut, i.e. cheap ESC. If you can, replace it with a known good brand ESC. 1300mah battery is plenty of flying time. Bought additional 2 batteries from Value Hobby (1300mah, 7.4v, 30C) but have to replace the EC3 that came with it with EC2 connectors so it matches with the planes ESC EC2 connector.
