I just maidened my Flyzone Beaver today. All I can say is Power. This thing climbs like a bat out of hell. My grass is kind of tall. This thing taxied through it and deep leaves like it with out a problem. When I applied power for take off. It rolled for 10-15 feet and clawed into the sky. Once I leveled out all it needed was a couple clicks of trim and flew great. After a couple of laps the wind started picking up so I decided to bring it in. Its next to impossible to land it because all it wants to do is float. She landed longer than I wanted in some deep leaves and blew right through them. What a great plane. I bought the txr version with anylink. With free shipping I payed around $220. Out of the box it came with everything you need but a battery. It even includes the floats. I bought the Parkzone corsair last month. The bnf version is $269. You have to buy the extra servos and y harness to add the flaps. I also added the retracts for $90. After comparing the two planes side by side the beaver is a better bang for the buck all day long. I'd recommend it to anyone.
