Multiplex Heron

I love my Easy glider to bits (literally) but it's really was getting a bit shabby. I wanted something a bit bigger for La Muela, where things often get very low or very high, but also elapor to take a few knocks. The crow brakes were a bonus.
What you get is a very pretty, very well designed model that is a remarkably sophisticated plane to fly. It's both easy to fly and also delivers a bit more if you put a bit more in, like beautifully coordinated thermal turns. The surprise was that it's also tough enough for some pretty exuberant aerobatics.
I couldn't be happier with it, what an amazing time we live in.
I got mine for less than £250 from Model Maniacs, who were a joy to deal with.
