        I wouldn't recommend it. It flys WONDERFULLY, but it has to be the most troublesome jets I've owned on the ground. Getting it to track straight was a total PITA.

        I even switched the nose wheel to the Mirage 80 dual wheel setup and it was STILL inconsistent... I think it had something to do with the main gear design.

        It's a shame because when you did manage to yank it off the ground with full flaps, it flew REALLY well and sporty. Very sharp and precise little jet in the air.

          I agree with Alpha. I bought mine used and it had a ton of play in the mains. I ended up jb welding the setscrews in on the mains, seemed to fix the problem. Did the fix about 30 flights ago, still holding strong. Even after some nasty bounces.Here is flights after gear fix. Have come to really enjoy this jet. 5000mah packs with inrunner motor, so I get around 4min max flying conservatively. Two flights after gear mod. Nothing crazy, the morning out of bounds crew was still present at the field, so kept it cool. I would get a newer generation sport jet, IMO. Unless you get a great deal on one of these.

              Would this be one you can remove the LG and make her a belly lander?

                Due to the full flying stab and its neutral position... Belly landing is almost guaranteed to cause a break in the elevator's leading points from digging into the grass. : /

                Ask me how I know haha!

                PS - I DO have a spare set of SS elevators if anyone needs a set.

                  I only have about a dozen flights on mine but i have not had any tracking issues. I did put the nose wheel on a separate channel and mix it to the rudder so that i could trim it without affecting the rudder.
