The HobbyWing Mini AeroScout RTF Electric Airplane (770mm) was inspired by the popular AeroScout S, with a "mini" size that makes it an ideal compact trainer model that can easily be flown in large parks, soccer or football fields and other suitable spaces where larger models can't typically be flown.
This model features an incredibly durable EPP construction with the same pusher power configuration as its larger counterpart for improved safety, plus better propeller and motor protection, making it a durable and dependable platform. This allows first-time RC pilots to learn to fly successfully with an extremely durable hobby-quality trainers for less than $100. It's also extremely easy to assemble and repair if needed because, unlike other similar class models, the major airframe parts including the wing and tail simply bolt or snap into place…no glue or tape required. Best of all it's a Ready-To-Fly (RTF) aircraft so it includes a controller/transmitter equipped with 2.4GHz technology, AA batteries for the transmitter, plus a rechargeable LiPo flight battery and convenient USB charger. That means there's nothing extra to buy or provide so you can get to flying!

HobbyZone Mini AeroScout RTF Electric Airplane (770mm)
The bolt that holds the wings onto the fuselage was the wrong size and wouldn't screw in. I had to find a wood screw that would fit.
After that, the rudder or something was misaligned, so the plane would veer to the right so hard it couldn't even take off from the ground. We switched to a hand launch, but the hard rightward misalignment meant that it would dive to the right and crash within seconds every time. The tail broke on the first day.
I emailed FliteTest last Saturday about this. It's now the following Friday and I haven't heard anything from them.
So the kit was junk, it literally wouldn't fly straight, and the customer service was dead silent.
