About the model: This is a great beginners plane into 3D and aerobatic flying without shattering planes into pieces if you're a butter finger. This is my early days 3D flight practicing extreme moves without the worry. The fuselage is made from EPP foam which is durable material from crashes. If it tears it can be easily fixed with hot glue or others alternative adhesive. Very chunky size plane yet docile to fly to fly around the park practicing crazy flight skills.
