Does the Carbon Flyer have any weak points?
The number one enemy of any RC plane is a tree or rooftop. While it can survive most crashes, landing on a roof is never good. Always fly in an appropriate open area away from obstacles. Stepping or sitting on a Carbon Flyer can certainly damage it.
How easy is it to fly?
Carbon Flyer is simple to fly, much more so than traditional RC planes, but it still takes good technique. You should use a straight, smooth, upward toss to launch the plane. Just tilt your phone to steer Carbon Flyer left and right and slide the throttle to control altitude.
How well does it handle the wind or rain?
Carbon Flyer can handle heavier winds than most small foam planes, but it is still a very small aircraft. Winds over 5 mph can really challenge it, and anything over 10 mph is not recommended. The electronics are not sealed so avoid flying near water or hard rain.
Can Carbon Flyer work with my R/C radio?
While it is possible to modify the Carbon Flyer to work with a radio it would take someone familiar with hobby aircraft to do the job. Our lead designer, Bret, plans to execute such a modification and record the process on YouTube to share it. We may offer this mod ourselves in the future.
