Volantex ranger 1600mm wingspan has been flown a few dozen times and has had a few minor crashes, but no major damage to the strong blow-molded fuselage only minor scuffs on the wings. This plane has everything in it ready to go and is an absloute rocket on the bigger turnigy 3530 - 1700 kv motor that i put on it for more power, there is also an upgraded ESC to deal with the bigger motor and also comes with an Dsm2 rx with a satelite for extra range. It will climb vertical and the battery that i mostly used on it was a 2200mah 3s. It is a great glider, but you have to make sure that you are not going too slow, because of the weight of this plane it will want to tip a wing and stall. I would recommend a bigger 3s in the front to counter the tail weight, and also buy the 2000mm wings separately that just clip in.
