5:30 pm was a perfect time for my test flight of SYMA's
SUPERSONIC airplane. at 19 inches, this airplane is so lightweight
you feel you are just holding a feather. flying field is
located in a land called "Buen Retiro" Bubog -
the spot famous for the three large willow trees in Silay
I choose to handlaunch the airplane because there is no
available decent runway in the area.
a slow toss will easily provide lift to the airplane. a
strong toss will give the airplane a steep nose up and sometimes
a 90degree climb - more like a stall climb followed by a
nose dive. it is therefore only advise to handlaunch the
airplane very very lightly. do not fly in strong winds.
it will cause your airplane to stall and crash land. best
place to fly this airplane is indoor or areas with very
low wind and refrain from using a continuous full throttle.

later, i took some time to fly Syma's Flying Fox. look
at how high it can get.
yours truly with the Pastoral brothers infront the famous
"Three Sisters" willow tree. Syma Supersonic is
highly recommended to young pilots, but will also amuse
the intermediate pilots. for beginners, it is strongly advised
to fly in areas free of rocks and concrete.
