I was in the market for a new electric powered foamy. I have had several Multiplex aircraft and always had good results with them. So I got the receiver ready Heron. Put it together and set it up in one day and flew the next. I was not disappointed in the quality of the aircraft and it flew just fine. PS - the recommended battery is a 2200 3cell lipo. I tried it with a 2200, 1300 and 850 MaH. It found lift much better with the smaller battery - you just need to change it more often.

Have owned several EZ Glider Pro's, and other basic floaters. This was my first full house glider and I am impressed with the Quality and flight envelope that the Heron provides, requires to be flow faster than than the floaters and just what I was looking for.
My landing area is rather rough at times and the tough foam allows for more landing area's.
This Plane ROCKS!
