Overall Excellent AEG

Pros:
The full CNC Aluminum Body is light and rock solid.
Rubberized and Polymer parts are durable but their life span remains to be seen.
Battery compartment fits many types of crane stock batteries.
FPS is right around 350 FPS and with .28's I was getting crazy distance.
New Hop up chamber is amazing and rock solid. Very similar to the G36 style Hop up and it was very stiff out of the box. The accuracy of this stock gun is amazing.
The internals of this thing reminds me of the VFC Knights Armament PDW which never failed on me and feeds very well with Echo 1 Noveske High Capacity Mags.
Most impressive part is the fact that it functions very well with an 11.1 Flame 15C Lipo
Licensed Trades is amazingly etched on this weapon system with precision. I am impressed with the trades.

Cons:
The price is pretty high versus some G&P's and other older VFC AEG's of the same quality and functionality.
The lower does not take my Pmags or Emags. Must be an issue with the mag catch.
The 11.1 LIFE 15C lipo was slightly too big to fit in the crane stock slots to where I was afraid it might get stuck. some sanding down can be done to make the battery slots a tad wider. For the price this should not be a problem.

Conclusion:
If you have the money, VFC is one of the best manufacturers of AEG's on the market, the HK trades are beautiful, The new Hop up unit is a major plus and aids dramatically in accuracy. The FPS is more than enough to handle heavy my .28's and .30's BB's. I highly recommend this for veteran players and for those starting out with the cash, however if you do not have the cash for this gun, I would still strongly recommend this as the one you save your money for as your first gun.

4/5 due to the price.
