This is a really nice looking, excellent flying midsize model aircraft. It has no bad tendencies and tracks well. The manual lists a 95mm to 100mm CG but most of us with this plane are finding 110mm to be the best balance point. Tail wheel assembly usually needs minor modification to work correctly. I used new control rods and stop-links to correct a common misalignment. Some people are also finding gaps at the wing joiners and my hatch release was painted and very hard to move until the paint was removed from the slider.
I flew the plane with 6000mAh 4S with no issues but 3000mAh to 4000mAh would be the best range. Decent power from the motor/prop combo. Wheels are large enough to take off from grass as long as it's reasonably short. Even with a well-balanced prop and Loctite my wheel bolts kept vibrating loose and required glue in the threads to keep them in place. Not a perfect plane but with some very minor modifications is a really nice plane that flies well, especially for the price.
