I have had my Heron RR for over two years, it has had more than 85 hours of airtime, over 120 flights, and it is still going strong. I have found it surprisingly capable of aerobatics, although it looks and feels more at home when just soaring and working good lift. The “crow” brakes work effectively, and help a lot in achieving consistent accurate landings, at the slope, or on the flat-field.
With an Overlander 2200 3S Lipo, I have generally achieved 35 - 45 minutes flat-field airtime in the lighter winds (up to about 8 mph). 20 secs of full-power climb gives me around 125 metres height and 3 mins of glide in neutral air. For a more even soaring flight, I have found that using 30% back-ground motor power makes searching out lift areas and avoiding the sinking air much easier, climb rate at this power is around 0.5m/s, plus any thermal assistance, so it then almost feels like it is in gentle slope-soaring lift conditions. Nice and relaxing.
Slope soaring itself is enjoyable, although once windspeed is above 12 mph, the model is getting to the edge of its comfort zone in my experience. Overall, a delightful model.
