Nice plane, a little OVER priced, flies great and lands even better.

Over priced??? I have 2 Pilot RC Yak's and they are worth every penny. Great flying, building and service. I have to disagree.

Not to mention... the Columbia is very large and the components to make things like the landing gear an detail accessories are definitely not your "run of the mill" design.

The Tank- I have the same airplane as you with the same engine. I have flown it a few times and it was a dog in rolls. The ailerons are really small compared to the flaps, so i hooked up the flaps to work with the ailerons, and it works really well now. Did you feel this was as well? Im still trying to figure out how to program "crow" into the system so that i can use the flaps on landing. Any thoughts here? Thanks
