Construction / tuning:

As all Multiplex planes the assembly is a piece of cake... simple, quick
and without errors.
The only alteration I added was first a pilot (a lady pilot as I got the
plane for x-mas from my wife) and later I replaced the stock superlight
55 mm wheels with 120 mm wheels as my flying field rather looks like
a real field then a model airport. These big wheels look a bit odd, but
also cool and my friends at the field did some jokes, however where
impressed by the overall performance of the plane.

Flight Experience:

Just great. Presently my favourite plane. Power is ample and the plane
goes from very very slow to fast and agile. I try all kind of stunts and
never managed to dismantle the plane in air, however some times I
got carried away and... rather emergency crash landed - once the
fuselage broke in half just under the pilot (fixed it with glue and some
short CFK rods) and 2nd I was braking with the planes nose at full
speed - the lipo pushed out the motor and the glued foam. However all
was repaired the same evening and the plane is continuing to give me
great pleasure.
In the on-board video on the site you will see the first aborted take off -
despite the big wheels they hooked up in a mouse hole (no joke) and
the Gemini almost flipped over! The 2nd flight was good and shows
some stunts and nice views!
