Hi Steve,


I have flown several of these types of models and all of them have a characteristic of running along the floor on take off and leaping up in the air all of a sudden, usually rolling to the left so be ready. should fly really nice, and should also glide very stable on landing due to the wing section so try it up high first :wink: so you know then you can bleed off the speed on landing knowing it will not bite you. They all look rather scary these type of models but its actually suprising how nice they are. Once you know it is all ok, get yourself a long tuned pipe for the 61 as this just makes them balistic. Had the same in my hunter and it was great.
