The LTE Rambler RS itself is not a bad model at all, I've enjoyed flying it a lot so far. It does need some minor modifications however sadly the manufacturer seems to have a few attitude issues. Staying on the positive side the foam is well moulded and I like the look of it. It does fly well with some minor mods (mentioned shortly) and it will take a wide range of batteries very easily as the battery bay is huge, around 8" x 4" big! However you will need to add 40mm of depron foam to the vertical stabiliser to tame the hunting (shown clearly in several YouTube videos), pins in the rear hatch to stop the fin flying off and a clip to the front hatch as the magnets are not very good and definitely use 4mm carbon rods in the nose either to stop it from snapping off too (surprising as the same mistake by the designer who made the Dart XL, which had exactly the SAME issue). The Rambler RS can be a bit of a challange to launch, even with a standard 5200mAh 4S pack. FULL throttle and a hard throw is the key to a good launch. Also create your own or 3D print a nose cover to block up the front nose vent. I did find that when landing in wet grass, water got into the fuse area and soaked the battery and as far back as electronics in the rear. Blocking the nose up will stop this from happening. The manufacturer's attitude towards customer support is a whole different discussion point (less than desirable), however as mentioned at the beginning, not a bad model at all, needs a few, very easy mods to make it a good model that you'll also enjoy too.

RagTheNutsOff The model has been reviewed fairly. The modifications are clearly described and shown why they are needed. No RC model is ever perfect as a company, designer and LTE brand should clearly know this. Lying to your customers is a bad thing. Also you appear to be mistaken, this review has nothing to do with Eachine, that is a different, in house brand of Banggood. This is for the LTE Rambler RS. Matt
