The prop, motor esc combination in this plane is really good, very smooth and quiet. It flies like a hot sport plane nothing floaty at all, tracking is really good.
The recommended throws however are not realistic, they are way too much.
i moved the ball links on the servo arms in by 2 holes on all servos and this reduced throw was a big improvement. The flaps are huge and a large down elevator mix is required to avoid ballooning. I have Flaps set at 15 degrees with 5 degrees of down elevator mixed in and 30 degrees flaps with 9 degrees down elevator mixed in, it a good starting point. I found the the supplied elevator pushrod to be a bit short and as a result it is not screwed very far into the ball link. i am considering changing this. All in all very,very happy with this plane 1star taken off for short push rod and throw recommendations

Mines great, but….

I’m happy with mine, but I recommended Buddy RC to a friend and he bought a Bighorn. His is lost somewhere between Buddy RC and UPS. I hope you standby your service to Bryan Baker.

Introducing the OMP Hobby Big Horn, a remarkable plane with a wingspan of 49 inches. You have two options to choose from: with or without flaps. However, don't let that deceive you because this plane has a very light wing load and flies like a dream. You can even fly it like a trainer!

This plane can also hang on its prop with the flip of a switch. Set the high rates and throws to the max and see what this plane can do. With the recommended Sunny Sky motor and Eolo Prop, you're in for a fun ride.

Equipped with aluminum landing gear and soft, large tires, this plane can take off from grassy surfaces with ease. You can take it anywhere and fly it without any limitations.

The OMP Hobby Big Horn comes in three beautiful color schemes: Red, White, and Blue; Blue, Yellow, and White; and our signature color, Green, White, and Blue. All three schemes feature Oracover film.

For the ARF version, we recommend the Sunny Sky X2820 1100 KV motor, which will take your flying experience to the next level.
