Ground handling is excellent, so there will not be any surprises there. In the air the model is a slow docile flyer. However, being a typical “Aeronca”, the ailerons will exhibit a fair amount of adverse yaw, so rudder input will be required in the turns to overcome it. Otherwise, she is a smooth and gentle flier.
Landings are a breeze, but because the model is light a bit of power is needed on the approach since light models do not penetrate well at lower approach speeds so carry a little power on the approach and she will come in just fine. Then once the landing is committed, add a bit of up elevator and slowly reduce the power and flare it onto the runway for a perfect 3-point touchdown.You will need the items listed below as well as these items: (2) 12" Servo Extension Leads (1) 11" Servo Y Lead (2) Rolls of covering (2) 2-3/4" Main Wheels (1) 3/4" Tail Wheel (1) File Folder (1) .080 x 14" Styrene Rod
