the F-106 in 15 + mph winds and she did surprisingly well. I have always liked the “Delta” shaped wings and have had a lot of fun flying mine. I would suggest the Delta Dart for a modeler that has flown a fair amount and built a few planes before. This is not the best first plane, building wise you could pull it off but flight skill wise you should be an intermediate flyer. She is pretty fast and rolls very well. You will need a radio that has deltamixing for the Elevons.

This item is new in the pack, an un-built kit you need to build, NO electronics the kit and hardware, laser cut plywood is included with a well detail instruction book. The instruction book features cool 3d renderings of the model. The first batch of builders commented they thought we had really nice instructions.
