    Ok, I love the Champ! I started with the j-3 which had a much smaller and weaker motor than the champ as well as being a little smaller. So the champ was a huge upgrade!

    But here comes the bad news. There is really nothing you can do to it to make it "more fun". The motor is the largest you can put in it and its not exactly made for aerobatics despite being able to do some moves. I have seen people put flaps on them but generally it makes the plane so heavy it sucks up more juice than it needs to without any real noticeable effects.

    But the good news is that you could always try for a larger battery to extend the flight time. I enjoyed flying the j-3 around the parking lot for 25-30min on one battery at half throttle in the middle of the night. If you really wanna try something fun, put some lights on it to fly at dusk/night. TinyBriteLights make an awesome kit that I have put on every micro that I have had and I love them. Here is a link to the kit you need for the champ.

    The Champ is a great plane to learn on and play with when you want to get back to just flying. But to me it sounds like its time for a new plane that takes a little more skill and practice.

    +1 verticalsprk Sounds like you are ready to step up to an aerobatic plane.

    OR, you can always finish the salvage plane you were working on before! That would be a great step up from the champ :)
