I built this as a park flyer sometime back and have really been impressed with the overall durability and efficiency of the rig.The AKK FX3 and Furious Pagoda have been a great combo and works very well in the wooded area that I like to fly in. I have yet to push it out to failsafe, but Im also unwilling to walk that far looking for 3 incher behind every tree.
This is not the fastest or the lightest in my fleet, but with over a 100 packs on her she is still fun to fly.
