Can it do grass? YES IT CAN!
One of the most important features of an aircraft in Australia is it's ability to take off and land on a grass runway.
Have you (ChargedRC) flown it? Not yet, building one now. At ChargedRC we are working towards building and flying every kit we sell. After all, you can't really write a description of flight characteristics without flying it yourself right?

Description: The full size Alpha is a co-manufactured light attack jet and advanced jet training aircraft from Dornier of Germany and Dassault-Breguet of France. FMS have done a great job capturing this jet's excellent flight characteristics for the new EDF jet pilot. The jet comes in factory painted colours modelled on the Portuguese Air Force's Alpha jet. The red and white paint scheme on the belly contrasts wildly with the green/white and black scheme on the top of the aircraft, making it very easy for a new pilot to see which side is up when learning to fly. This also helps quite a lot with orientation in flight.
Powered by a big 70mm EDF unit/brushless motor and a 2200mAh 14.8v 4s LiPo battery, the FMS Alpha has more then enough power to handle basic aerobatics as well as general flight and flight training. The wings are large and mounted high on the body which increases flight stablity and the generous wing area assists greatly with slow flight and makes landings easier. The wheels are large enough to handle rough grass takeoffs and landings, as well as being fine for packed dirt or concrete runways. This is a great jet if you want to make the transition to an EDF and want a jet that will be gentle with you, or if you are a new pilot and wanting to purchase a trainer and an EDF in one package.
Pilot Skill: ChargedRC recommends a beginner - experienced pilot.
