I was first introduced to the Opterra when I saw it at the Stone Blue Airlines shop. I looked at it and thought to myself, “something that huge has to be more expensive than I could ever afford”. I had set my mind on a Mini Talon since it was a cheap starter plane with plenty of room in the fuselage. Upon looking at it and watching the reviews, I had my heart set on it. Then on a whim I decided to check the price on the Opterra. Turns out it wasn’t as bad as I though especially when I considered what came with it and how it functioned. I saved up some cash and decided to jump in with both feet. Now, granted it was a bit more money when you factor in the FPV, flight controller (which I might have went over board with) and all the other equipment. I will saw though, that when you see it flight, it’s amazing. To fly it and know that if there’s a problem it will fly itself home is a comfort. I also purchased a servo that will allow me to look over the wing when I’m up in the air.
Now this plane is a delicate flower.. it’s not designed to do flips (though I have seen people do them). I enjoy it because of its size (about 6.5 feet from wing tip to wing tip). It can cruise once it’s high enough and altitude it can easily gain once I’ve set my mind on it. The readings that my flight controller give me range from airspeed to altitude and it even points me in the direction of home.
I plan on having this craft for quite some time and even had a custom paint job done on it. This plane is a dream to fly and if you’re looking for the type of plane you can put into the air and just enjoy flying, then look no further. Feel free to check out some of my videos in the video section. If you have any questions about this plane, please let me know and I’d be happy to respond.
