I got a great deal on this plane and couldn't resist it. This is one of the few PAU planes that I have not had till now. It was an XFC 2014 raffle plane that one of the local guys won. He told me that this was beyond his abilities to fly so he was thinking about selling it. Been after him ever since to sell it to me. He finally caved in and we came to terms on the price and I brought it home. I'll be working on this part time and will modify a couple of things just for the heck of it. I have heard about people not liking the split landing gear and the canopy warping and not fitting correctly. While I don't have first hand experience with these things I will try to fix what some people complain about before I fly it. Unfortunately when I do that. I won't have anything to compare it to. What is important here is there are a whole lot of people out there that call themselves modelers but can't fix anything. Hopefully this will help them not be afraid of a little fix up in order to put their minds at ease.
