I have this model - it's fantastic, I swapped the string connectors for wire replacements and it has given more weight to the plane, I ordered the recommended motor and ESC for this model but I need to upgrade to the next larger size for more power and grunt. Can anyone recommend the next size up which I need to order. I don't know enough about motors and speed controllers. thanks for any advice given.

Really nice plane, goes together quickly and the instruction booklet is in full color and very easy to understand. It's a big plane and quite heavy, but still flies really slow and smooth with the supplied motor. On a 10A ESC I used a 8040 GWS DD prop and it has more than enough power. Almost holds itself in a knife edge, rolls with no height deviation and is just an all round beautiful plane to fly. Con's: you have to be spot on with your carbon measurements and placement; there is absolutely no spare. The supplied pull-pull string is not long enough, I ran out with 1 length to go. The landing gear is absolutely horrible; is slopes backwards and the prop almost hits the ground it sags so much that when you taxi it just noses over every time. It's very hard to take off from ground anyway, the tail is too high off the ground so you need heaps of speed and runway for it to come unstuck, just hand launch. Don't use velcro to attach batteries; you will destroy the plane trying to rip them off. Don't use CA it's too brittle. Other than those little things, this is a fantastic plane and well worth the money.

Super light and manoeuvrable! This is a great 3D plane and was set up with the recommended accessories – 370mAh 2s battery, 10amp ESC, 3 HXT500 servos, 8x4” prop. Everything was ordered from the Australian warehouse with regular post and arrived in three days! The only quibble with the plane is the landing gear, which is too flexible to be functional. Worse, the position of the gear struts foul the movement of the aileron servo preventing full swing – for this reason I’ll probably remove the landing gear altogether and just hand launch and catch the plane.
