its a super decathlon approx 1000m wingspan.i bought it some years ago and decided it was to fragile for me as a learner in the old days lol.my dad give me a handful of cash and taken it of my hands.i have just got it back of him for a fraction of wot he gave me.its about 2 to 3 years old and never flown.i think the wing is slightly warped.

hi jeff i think it should be ok as long as there is no twist in the wings, film covered wings have a tendancy to do this. I had a seagul decathlon 2yrs ago flew great on a still day it did,nt like any wind though nice plane

well i went out this morning,for a quick fly.i sent up the flying wing and the t28.the decathlon got its maiden flight as well and yes it came back in one peace.it needed just a bit of up trim and thats it.it was a none eventful flight.elevator could do with reducing the travel as it loops bit to tight for the airframe i think and the rolls are not bad but will tinker with them.speed is very trainer like so will upgrade soon.not watt tested it yet.
