Die EPO-Schaum-Qualitä*t ist nicht schlecht, aber der Flieger benö*tigt einiges an Nacharbeit. Die Stufe am Unterboden ist zu gering bemessen um vom Wasser abheben zu kö*nnen und muss nachgeschnitten werden. Das 9 Gramm Seitenruderservo sitzt sehr weit hinten im Leitwerk, weswegen der Schwerpunkt trotz einen 200 Gramm Akkus (LiPo 3s/2400mAh) nicht zu erreichen ist, es muss Ballast in die Nase. Die Lackierung ist nicht abriebfest, vermutlich ist der Lack nicht fü*r EPO gedacht - mit Parkettlack ü*bermalen bringt Besserung. Die Flugeigenschaften sind eher was fü*r erfahrene Piloten, man ü*berzieht sehr schnell und dann fä*llt die Icon beinahe senkrecht runter. Fü*r jemanden der bereit ist nachzubessern aber ein preisgü*nstiger Wasserflieger.

I have one, bought from somewhere else, paid alot for it ARF. It was under powered and pretty darn hard to fly, think it needs more airleron or lots of speed. Put it down for a while. Better they sell just the airframe, it's very nice construction, 36bucks screaming good deal.
Not sure what they mean by "fly's better than the real ICON".. Who's flown the real ICON? Cool vids out there of the full scale tho. RCgroups might have setup tips

Ecconomico, per si deve fare un sacco della modifica sullo scafo sotto e mi sembra che gli allettoni sono molti piccoli rispetto l'apertura alare.

I did the fuselage mod and had no problems getting it off the water with a 2410, 9X4.7 and 3s 1300mah li-po. Once off it flies poorly, underpowered with this setup. it likes to fly fast or not at all. the stall is terrible resulting in a violent wing drop. i made use of some flaperons to try to slow it for landing. Bad idea!! It immediately enters a un-recoverable spin. It is quite durable though. It is i nice looking plane, Just tough to fly!!

i have maidened her today from the water. she actually can do it without mods to the hull! forget about slowflyer props and low kv motors. i have used 1600kv bell outrunner with towpro stick mount, tgy ae-30 esc, 1800mah 3s zippy battery (have to sand battery tray to fit) and 7x6e apc style prop. main hurdles awaits you at the pushrod system for ele and rud. i had to build a guide to remove pushrod flex. look for videos of my maiden at video tab.
