    It's weird how they give planes like the stratos, radian pro, tuff trainer, etc, a positive review and say their good and then in later episodes they say the exact opposite.

    I am looking to get a plance for my son. Did you like the Stratoa over the Delta ray ? Also do you have a review for the best outdoor planes for beginners ?

    I have a Firebird Stratos ! Altho I bought it over a year ago or so – I immediately crashed it – sorry !!!  I am just now getting it repaired.   My problem is: I am getting no response from either prop.  The tail and rudder do respond – so I am assuming a good connection and good batteries.  In the crash – the body was toast so I had to replace it.  To do that I had to remove the 1" square control panel/servo and I reinstalled it inside the body and just below the wing.  Could THIS be partially bad – cause the non response to/from the props ???  THX

    @John Randall – Horizon Hobby re-released the Stratos; It's now called the Stratocam. It's basically a Firebird Stratos with a different paint scheme, improved virtual instructor and a HD camera.

    Does anybody know any planes like this one. I have been flying for about a year and a half and my Dad wants to get into flying so I thought this would be a good plane but it is discontinued.

    Have owned this for 1.5 years, its great for beginners. Too bad I cannot bind it with my Spektrum radio.

    ive had mine a year now , I use 2 batteries in the bay to add weight and get better penetration in wind, ive flown this in 12mph at least and its really good fun and you know it will survive. Ive done inside and outside loops and flown upside down , it doesnt do the outside loops very well and ive hit the gnd vertically full speed several times and every part still works !. any of my other models would be trashed.  fantastic fun trainer. Ive never needed to replace any servo, motor, prop or any part., the wing has never split !  it does have a very bent nose with lots of tape though. its become a friend.

    I crashed my Stratos at full speed by accident into a metal pole and it hit the wings the all they did was detach them self from the plane ( I thought that plane was a write off) but instead i put the wings back on the started flying again! I recommend this plane to anyone 🙂 Have Fun!

    If you want to learn how to fly, find someone who has 2 of the same transmitter and a trainer lead to use with a better plane, like the Pichler Domino or Bixler 2. Oscar Leeson
