This is a great plane and flies beautifully. It's great how it braced itself on hard impact, saving itself from serious damage, push the wings back in and it is ready for takeoff once more. Make sure to use some blu-tack to keep the main carbon fiber spar in place as you will most likely loose it when the wing comes apart after a hard impact. Under full power the flight characteristics get a lot more dynamic so for the beginner it is a lot easier to control at half power. At zero power the control response becomes very docile and turns become very wide (a quick burst of power will improve this). Overall worth every penny.
Great flier and I get much longer flight times than advertised, probably because it doesn't need full throttle very often.
When I got this plane, I was a bit taken back - it is so light, and thought it was pretty cheap. BUT it surprised me it flies very well! The battery lasts a good 7-8 minutes and the plane is really fun to fly! I have also flown other RC planes looking for fun, quick and easy plane to take out and fly -- this one is! Don't be fooled by how simple it is - it works great!
It came fine as it was described and in perfect shape all in the box. Very easy to fly. An excellent RC plane for beginners.
After some playing with 6-channels microhelis I went on planes for the first time with this Skyking! It's a very nice plane, perfect for beginners. It's always predictable, maybe a bit light in the nose, so I decided to put some duct tape to get a bit of extra weight and to strengthen it. Anyway the plane seems very sturdy. In the first flight I had a couple of crashes (without duct tape on the nose) but without breaking anything. Loops can be easily done and the plane is always very forgiving: in "panic" situation it's enough to stop the motor and the plane will start gliding softly by itself.
