I pretty much hit my design goal on this one. It was to have a 4 channel alternative for front-yard flying, to replace/compliment my Mini-IFO.
It pretty much does it all, just a few odd tendancies, such as a roll-out of harrier rolls (must throw some rudder to it on exit), but not any worse than some of my other 3D planes. It's a real treat indoors, due to the light wingloading.
I'm not too happy with it as a 3D plane. It's too nuetral, and really wants to use rudder to turn. By loading it up nose-heavy, and using the shorter tail fuse version, it's acceptable, but not as good as I'd like. (at least the Zero version)
