I fly mine on D12-5. I did very little painting, and did not use the decals on it though. I printed a wrap that has fantastic details on it for the body tube. The only parts painted were the capsule,tower, and the fins.

It's not going to go all that high on a D12-5; probably about 650'; I would just use that.
That being said, you can safely fly it on a C11-3; it will probably only hit around 300'.
When in doubt, WHACK the GAS and NEVER touch the brake !!!

If you are NOT FLYING LOW in the left lane, you need to GET THE #$&@ OUT of it !

Yes, there is such a thing as NORMAL
, if you have to ask, you probably aren't
