Nitroplanes GuanLi Me-109 ARF
Like the others in this series, it will indeed fly fine on the provided brushed motor and nimh battery. Flight times are maybe four minutes, though, and power is okay at best. With this one, I definitely recommend going to an 11v lipo to get the extra power, as the plane has a tendency to tip stall if you get too slow, it's not very forgiving that way, be careful. But it does fly nicely. It's worth upgrading this one to brushless. The landing gear is pretty useless, too narrow, but it hand launches very easily and looks better in the air without the gear anyway. The paint job is very nicely done, looks great. Construction quality is good. I'm having fun with it.
