My review of this very low price F22 (just £21 from Banggood at the moment, I see one ebay seller asking £40 plus?) Easy to assemble , just glue in two fins. . Complete with tx and batteries are easy to find. Something to chuck in the car.
It's very durable! I nosed dived it in a couple of times before I managed (kind of) to get control. My flight test the following day was more successful. Needs a bit of trimming. I put a slight down bend in the elevator part of the tail and that helped stop the tendency for it to climb and stall.
Not a model for a windy day as I discovered. It is what they'd call a park flyer, weighs less than 50 grms, but I managed to lose it over a fence into someones garden.
And yes, I know I was too close to fence, but I was trying to keep it upwind of me. A strong gust caught me and before I knew it it was downwind. As I say it weighs less than a cigarette packet or I wouldn't have flown it in that park!
I think it looks great in the air, hence a little sound effect fun at the end of the video
Here's the Banggood link
