Flown in 1903 in Kitty Hawk, NC. The Wright Flyer was the first successful airplane. Taking off may be a bit difficult, accelerate until you hit about 90 mph, pull up and the airplane will want to go straight up, when it does this just push down on the elevators and you'll be fine. It may take a couple of attempts. Fly's very stable at 100 mph. Graphics have to be on high or the plane will be flimsy and fragile. I've never had a part break off.

    Tough to fly, just as I'm sure the original one was too.

    Nice replica! Takeoffs okay; tricky in the simulated air to fly.

    Amazing job. Looks great and flies like the clunky glider it is.
