i had the jetcat version, it is a lovely big model, a bit of a bitch to get in the car as it is nearly 1/4 scale, but the boom does detach, it uses huge blades. as you well know from your electric one. I did have a problem with the tail authority but now with more turbine experience under my belt that would be easy to fly around or overcome with a mod..
The only other thing i would say as a critism was the leaky fuel tank caps,as the fuel tanks are mounted upside down so the thread part of the neck goes through the base plate, which means it is 1/2 -1 turn from being real tight.. i used PTF tape and tried other means, in the end i just ensured they were empty...

my club did not like it as it was too big, for our field so i was limited - if i had the money i would go with the wren version anyday..

I had a fly of Phil's/Hobbyparts owners wren conversion and i loved it.. he even showed me a few autos on it,it was lovely...

As bell bloke said Hobbyparts have a good reputation and their back up is very good.. Phil is a very knowedgable accomplished pilot who flies both full size as well as large models..

in fact i would go as far to say any model he flies he makes it look good.. and makes me feel sick ha ha with envy!

I'd also recommend the alloy blade grips. They are very nicely done but did require a little elbow grease to fit well. No big deal though, easy to work given the size. The beatings will continue until morale improves...
