"NexStar 46 Trainer ARF"
"I have gotten many great flights from this plane. It handles unbelievably well. I switched the receiver battery to one that gave many more flights per charge. A loose battery connection caused complete loss of control at about 100 feet. I enjoy flying this model so much I am replacing it instead of changing to a diffrent plane. It works very good as a camera platform, I have to use short dirt and grass fields. This plane is so predictable I can land it and take off almost like an Alaska Bush Pilot. Great buy for the beginner or for experienced flyers like myself. I did not catch the loose battery connection but now I will use heat shrink tubing on the new plane wiring connectors.Lee"
