My previous experience with alfa planes has not been good; they are pathetically brittle, but I've learned a lot about making these flying eggshells tougher over the last few years I'll do a mod thread at some stage.....
They fly wonderfully as they are light - but the downside is they are pretty fragile. You can have durable = heavy or delicate = light. Light flies better IMHO. To be honest I don't have any big issues with durability and have some over 7 years old!
