VA 41" Ultimate
Kit quality is good. Directions could be improved. For experienced builders only
I purchased this plane about a year ago and I have to say that it is my favorite plane at present. It will perform every imaginable maneuver and does so over a very wide speed envelope. It is both stable and aerobatic. Also, it is tough. EPP takes a lot of stress out of flying. It endures flip over landings and even an occasional encounter with an immovable object usually with no damage at all. After a year of flying this plane I finally had become so confident (always a bad omen) that I recently put it through a full speed vertical encounter with blacktop. Yes, it broke the cowl and shook a few of the glued points on the plane loose. But nothing that took more than a few minutes to fix. And, because the EPP always returns to it's original shape, unlike lesser foams, the repairs are practically invisible. The kit comes with a plywood motor mount . I did not use this. Rather, I substituted a block of EPP foam with a piece of plywood glued on the front of it. Had I used the plywood mount, it would have been destroyed in the crash I described above. The EPP was fine. I use up to 3 cell, 2700 mAh batteries and it flies fine with them. They recommend a 1350 mAh, 3 cell. I've never tried that. I am using the standard power package that TH recommends for this plane and usually hold my flights to 6-7 minutes. This is a beautiful plane. I can't recommend it highly enough. Get one! You'll be glad you did. The
