TechOne Saturn 4 Channel RC EPO ARF (Blue)CharlesMay 31, 2014This plane shipped to my door in 3 days. It was nicely boxed and all the parts were well protected. I saved the foam shipping box so I could store it when not in use. This is a great trainer plane. I can fly for about 10 minutes on a 3cell 1800 lipo at about 1/2 throttle and lower. It just floats around up there. I did replace the wheels with larger diameter for grass landings. This plane fly's lake a dream.
TechOne Saturn 4 Channel RC EPO ARF (Blue)bobApril 3, 2014Not for beginners as the plane is pretty fast an takes a long time to land an you need open space. the plane is very nice an well thought of.But the front landing gear is not in right position. When you land no matter how soft it tips over. its needs to be trimmed an that's why its not for newbies. its not a real trainer but once trim it flies good.
TechOne Saturn 4 Channel RC EPO ARF (Blue)PatrickNovember 18, 2013On my first landing the front plastic steering collar broke. If it was a hard landing I could understand but it was not. On my second flight I was coming down pretty hard and pulled up on my elevator so I was pulling some g's and the plane came apart. The front of the wing come out of tab and from their everything went south. Looks like I should have listened to other people on here a supported the front of the wing better. The plane is now in a couple different pieces. Other then that the plane flies great. It flew so nice that i will be getting another one dispite the catastrophic failure I had. Just need to take care of those two problems and it will be a great plane. If it did not fly so good I would not have gave it the rating I did but I have flown a couple trainers and this one by far flies the best.

The bushing is to weak. I made some changes, and made it stronger. Working great. It also will take off and land in rough grass. Great job nitro planes!
TechOne Saturn 4 Channel RC EPO ARF (Blue)toyMarch 11, 2013Same problem with front landing gear as dave. I put a wire tie threw the spring and around the nose cone. Can't use steering. It takes off and lands so well it does'nt seem to be an issue. Flies well at very low speeds as well as full throttle. No bad flight charactoristics. Very areobatic at full throttle for a trainer. Super easy to fly at low speed. Can't go wrong at this price. Dialed it in for a friend this week end. 1800mah 30c 3s sky lipo. Adjusted to stock c.g. spec. and it flew awsume.
TechOne Saturn 4 Channel RC EPO ARF (Blue)GalenFebruary 8, 2013Excellent trainer for the price! I purchased it because I needed a new aileron trainer and had lots of 3 cell 1800 batteries. I use it to train high school students and it flies extremely well. We fly off a rough grassy field and it takes off and lands good. It's been landed over 30 times so far and the landing gear has held up with no incidents. The supplied motor and servos are performing well and I get about 14 min on the batteries. Aerobatics are as predicted for a high wing trainer, with significant down elevator required for inverted flight. Highly recommended!
TechOne Saturn 4 Channel RC EPO ARF (Blue)DaveNovember 12, 2012I. Bought this to train on and I do like it. The only problem is the plane is very sturdy and holds up well to hard landings with the exception of the ft landing gear. It is mounted to the engine mount and very flimsy it broke the first time I landed and I modified it and made it stronger but is still very weak. It has a heavy duty shaft and spring to absorb hard landing but the brkt will never hold and it breaks before the spring can work
