First of all it flies great but there is some things you need to look at before maiden!The control horns on the wing (4) are just hot glued on and seem not very strong. I used 5 minute epoxy to tack them down just to feel confident they don't come loose. I didn't glue the elevator control horn down before maiden and almost crashed because the control horn came loose!!! From the factory, there wasn't a single drop of glue on the elevator control horn!!! Barely got it down safely with some very intense oh crap moments!!! 5 minute epoxy on the elevator control horn and it's fine now. Wings flex a little more than i like but it flies awesome and is able to do some basic aerobatic flying. Good power for climb outs and has no bad stall tendencies flying slow when turning. Looks awesome in the air and makes a awesome swoosh sound in power off high speed passes!! Quick and easy to assemble at the field, good purchase.

Multiplex Full House Glider

This is another great plane from MPX and similar to the Solius which I have over a 1000 flights on. The difference on the Heron is you have a larger wing with flaps and you can program Full House Wing setups on this plane providing you have a 7 channel TX/RX for camber/reflex/crow/snap flaps, and full wing ailerons which enhances both thermal ability and acrobatics. If using the Hacker A30-12L Motor note the shaft size is 5mm when ordering the suggested Aeronaut Spinner.
