The plane is awesome.... UPS is not (for Canadians)

The plane is a great 3D capable plane. Goes together really quickly and with no major hiccups to speak of.

Note to other Canadians:
Do NOT have them ship UPS. You will be charged by UPS the duty + an unreasonable brokerage fee. Fedex's fee is much less. Go with USPS which will land with Canada Post whose brokerage is much more reasonable - IF they even remember to charge you!

The plane arrived in good shape. The box did not look good but the plane was fine.(Good job on second box).
The plane is beautifull, covering is tight all is well.
Assembly is quite easy for a new pilot. Struggling a bit on the electronics, especially the receiver programming.
Called their help line a couple times and Dan was very patient with the newb.
Have not put it in the air yet, still working on the reciever.
The only, and I mean the only thing OMP might consider is labeling the wires coming out of the wings, I.E aileron, flaps.
Great job OMP. Tim

Great Plane

The plane is great! I fly on a grass field and unfortunately the landing gear support plywood gave way. ( some pilot error was involved). Landing wasn’t smooth but the it is still weak.
I still recommend this plane. Took some trial and error on control surface through for non-3D flight. Also the flaps control opposite.

Nice plane.

Buddy RC shipped it to me really quick,plane was packed very well and had zero damage.
I enjoyed the build ,that is what was left to due. It would have been nice if they had included a servo reverser for the flaps, but not a deal breaker I had one in stock. Plane seems to have been built very strong, I'll know more after the maiden flight. Covering job was better then any other ARF I've bought. Hands down a beautiful plane.

So far I'm impressed

I purchased the bighorn for this spring (2021). It was extremely well packaged. Every detail was thought of for shipping. 5 Stars! The covering on mine was excellent. No blemishes or wrinkles. For the build I had to add a reversing board for one of the flap servos, no biggie and I prefer to keep the servo orientation the same side to side, for equal link lengths so this was preferred for me. The ball joints look a bit light and small for the size of the plane. I can't say they were a problem but I switched them out for 2-56 DuBro swivel links. I wouldn't say this is absolutely necessary.

I tested the plane in my garage and there was plenty of pull with the stock 12 x 6.5E prop. My watt/Amp meter did show a max pull of 44.7 amps (static) with a 3s (Don't recall C rating). The ESC is rated at 40amps. I'm not a 3D flyer, at least not at this point, so I suspect that normal flight will be less without hovering, or at least only for short periods during a hard climb. I reviewed with the shop and they assured me the ESC will handle the load as it can support higher peak loads than advertised. The test confirmed that since the ESC did not cut out after 30 seconds or so of a 44.7amp pull.

Looking forward to getting this baby in the air very soon!
