"the first step to being a great 3-D pilot is to get a firm grasp of the fundamentals of precision flying... I recommend starting with a design that is not only 3-D capable, but also flies the precision side of aerobatics well.... while some of the pure 3-D models can be an absolute riot for the proficient 3-D pilot they aren't going to teach the pilot as much as a model that blends both precision and 3-D qualities." - Mike McConville 3-D Flyer Magazine July/August 2004

Text book aerobatics wrapped in a no excuses unlimited/freestyle/3D capable airframe. Featuring a predictable flight envelope, point and go precision tracking, wicked fast snap and spin characteristics ultra slow Knife Edge performance.

The groove is a marvel of model airplane engineering. Flying on an economical electric power system, nothing this light flies with such a presence in the air. Absolutely faultless, precision flying, aerobatic design that almost anyone can fly, but will take many dozens of flights to truly master. Add in the fact that it is a pleasure to build like all of the SA planes and you truly have a winner on your hands. For a more compact design, you can't go wrong with the G-ride either!
Scott Stevens
Just finished my new Groove V2 up this morning after a leisurely week of building. It flew great! I've never had a more capable model, and the performance is outstanding. It is stable, crisp, and using the recommended motor has more than enough power. Hats off to StevensAero for yet another great airplane.

The plane went together great!

Every small plane should fly as well as the G480. It flies as though it were a 1/4 scale bird!
