Das Fledermaus was designed to be an Arena flyer with outside capabilities in light winds. My grandsons were on a real “Bat Kick” so I designed a Bat shaped wing and have had alot of fun flying mine indoors
arena and outdoors. You can fly around normally but she also will high alpha pretty well. The landing gear is nice too. You can practice touch and goes. The gear allows takeoffs from the arena carpet. You don’t have to hand launch the model. I would suggest the Fledermaus for a modeler that has flown and built something before. This is not the best first plane but makes a good decision for a second or third after you have mastered a trainer. You will need a radio that has Delta Mixing for the Elevon’s. There is also an optional instruction step for a release to drop dollar store parachute guys.My grandsons loved that!
