The ICON flying wing was designed to be a little faster and a little more maneuverable than the stock ICON (By virtue of its lighter weight to power ratio). Both are equally stable and easy to fly instilling a confidence in the pilot that invites flying low and pushing the envelope.
Below is a video of the ICON flying wing, demonstrating it's slow flight capabilities as well as its powerful climbing abilities. Unlike many planes who's manufactures claim "slow" flight, the ICON can actually fly slowly and does not require the high power to weight ratio required to "hang on the prop" in order to stay airborne while moving forward slowly. Some of this slow flying was done at 1/3 throttle. The plane you see here was built stock using only a $15 motor/ESC combo and a 2-S 800mah battery pack.
