I saw these a week or so ago - Sussex Model Centre have them for £85.50, and I think they're in the Galaxy Models ad in the latest RCM&E. They look good, don't they? They also do a couple of monoplanes, but I think you made the best choice for potential indoor flying, Stephen. Let us know how you get on.

Hi Olly ,

Yes it came with the TX , battery and charger , I got it from here http://www.hobbyandmodel.co.uk/index.php?option=com_frontpage&Itemid=1 .

I when down to see if they had some paint and solar film and other stuff to cover a model i am building and ended up coming out with 3 models as well .

A bargain at £85 so couldn't resist they had a whole range of them , i chose the Bipe as i thought it would fly slower .

I will have to get some more batteries now .

Hi ,

It`s Been a while now ,but i have flown the Polikarpov today at the Rochdale indoor meeting.

Probably should of been outside flying the bigger ones , But my son also wanted to go indoors .

I found the model to be tail heavy and flys a bit fast too . i added weight to the front end which made it more manageable but still does not feel right . Here is a Video anyway .
