    Ordered the Gunther Nexus to entertain my two 2 + grandsons having had a disapointing day with a much cheaper expanded polystyrene plane .The Gunther Nexus is a first class toy it flies very well is well constructed and durable well worth the money

    After reading through the reviews I decided to look into the issue of spare elastic bands before buying this plane. So I headed over to the Gunther website, which wasn't very helpful in showing postage cost to UK so I submitted a message to them to request more details.

    The elastic band needed for this plane is #5007 rubber band at a cost of €2.20 each. Postage cost is €4.50. They said they could include the Nexus at a cost of €18 for the same shipping cost so I purchased directly with them sending me a Paypal invoice (although not much saving on the plane compared to buying from Amazon). I did give them the feedback that they should consider including a spare elastic band in their international packages and bumping up the price a bit since it feels safer to buy with a spare band.

    The instructions clearly state that you should not wind up the propeller more than 250 times - I wonder if some of the people suffering broken bands are winding more than that. Actually I find winding 150 times is enough for a decent flight.

    An excellent toy, and great fun for the dads also - strongly recommend - and if the band does break go over to the Gunther website and submit a message as they have very friendly customer service and will be easy to buy some replacement bands from them.

    This one is more robust that the others I have bought made of plastic and bolser wood, however, the elastic band provided does snap if twisted too far, but the plane itself is fine. I contacted the manufacturer to let them know this and to provide extra one. Still awaiting more elastic bands from them.

    Our grandson, aged 6 has had hours of fun with us with this plane. I say "with us" because probably you would need to be 8 or 9 to be able to twist and hold the propellers before launching on your own. We were a little cautious at first, only doing about 50 twists, but you need to be bold. 100 is still not too many and will give a great flight. Instructions say up to 200 twists but that's probably when you get the band breakages. They are replaceable but at a cost of 5 euros each. If you go onto the Gunther website they have a little video of the nexus.

    Robust little plane but in comparison to others is expensive. Flight duration is shorter due to weight comparison. On the plus side this plane is designed to take the knocks giving a much longer life expectancy.

    This plane flies and lands very well. Its lightweight construction means that occasionally parts fall off after a rough landing but they are always easy to put back. Thanks to the wire construction of the wings and tail fin, the plane can be trimmed so that it flies in different ways, e.g. straight or curvy. Our seven-year-old loves it. The plane flies around 10-15 metres, so it needs a beach or large field.
