Rating In summary, I love this plane!
 
Setup Motor: Motrofly 4330 (very efficient, 62 amps full throttle, unlimited vertical) Prop: Xoar 20x8 ESC: Castle 120HV Servos: 4xSpektrum 6265HV Battery: 2s Lipo 1200mah (>50% full after 4 flights). Motor Battery: Turnagy 6s x2 3300 (set on 5 min timer triggering at 1/8 throttle, usually have >50% full after landing). Weight: 9.75lbs. Pros: I've owned the EF 78" Extra, EF Laser, 3dHS Edge and Skywing edge and this is the best performing plane of this size. It flies super light and has no bad tendencies or even wing rock. It flies more like my 100cc size planes as far as stability and performance. I'm an old school slow and low 3d and pattern pilot and this plane does everything nicely from harriers, torque rolls, slow knife edge, slow rolling circles, flat spins and whatever maneuver you can think up. Also slows down nicely on the downline. The best part is you get all that performance and it's small enough to fit in my Jeep and is easy to assemble. Great job with this design! This is my first AJ plane and plan on getting the larger raven or Laser to replace my larger older planes. Cons (two minor cons)1) Wheel pants needs reinforcement. I cracked the left one after the first flight and then the right one after the 5th flight. I am rough on landing gears since we have a small field and can only do harrier landings. I have destroyed carbon fiber landing gears in the past but not wheel pants. In this case the gear is strong but I will need to reinforce the next set of wheel pants I just ordered. 2) A blind nut dropped out in the left wing. Because of this I cant use the SFGs. I never really liked the looks of SFGs and this plane really doesn't need it. There is absolutely no wing rock or bad tendencies so I'll fly without it. In summary, I love this plane! It is my go to plane that is always in the back of my jeep just in case I can sneak out for a quick flight. Great job with this design! Thanks, Neil

Another Great Airplane from AJ. Super fast shipping, ordered Friday, delivered Monday. Very easy and straight forward assembly. The 73" Raven flies very well. I have the double taper wing version. Flies like it is on rails. It does not get tossed around like other planes of this size in the wind(10 to 15mph). It is also very stable in low and slow flight as well.

Plane arrived in perfect condition and went together with out a problem. It flies like on rails, as I have it set for precision aerobatics, not 3D. It is a great plane.

After seeing videos, AJ aircraft models at events and guys saying you have to at least build one AJ model I picked up the new AJ 73Ē Raven. 10 out of 10 from start to finish. It came packed super well with no shipping issues, manual was clear and easy to follow, the ultracote colors are excellent and the construction is impressive. I built the model in about 6hrs with no issues. I watched some of his AJ videos to learn how to do the pull pull cables etc.. The Raven flies excellent and looks amazing in the air. If you really want to make this model pop I recommend getting a sticker package from B&E Graphix. Iím so glad I was finally able to fit a AJ aircraft into my hanger and donít know why it took me so long. I look forward to another AJ aircraft down the road. Thanks!
