This speed plane is FAST and easy to fly. It is the big brother of the Babyshark and is a bit more tame. This plane has no bad habits at all and it can handle most aerobatics that an Aileron/Elevator aircraft can perform. It can be flown slow and low while cruising around the field like a park flyer or a crank it up and fly Wide Open Throttle high speed full elevator yank and bank pylon turns and get your heart pumping. Not quite as fast and crazy as the wicked little Babyshark but will still satisfy your need for speed. This is NOT a flat foamy plane. Expect performance like you never thought possible from a 3mm Depron foam airplane.
