SOLID SPORTS HACK
Strengths: Solid but slightly heavy construction. Very visible color scheme. Great in a bit off a blow.
Weaknesses: The covering material isnt the best but its OK. Part of the fuselage will need to be "doctored" if you want to fit a two stroke.
Overall: Great stable flying characteristics but aerobatic too. With low control surface rates & some expo the Acro wot could be a suitable second plane for a confident novice with some trimming & set up assistance from an experienced flyer. I have an OS 70 fourstroke in mine and I feel this is a great combination.

FANTASTIC INTRO MODEL
Strengths: These models have helped teach many thousands of flyers. A good combination of strength to weight this airframe offers very stable flight characteristics and coupled with a nice .46 size 2 stroke provides a great learning platform. It will handle a fair bit of wind and is fairly robust.
Weaknesses: The nose wheel wire is a bit soft but is usable to start off. A replacement is easily obtainable. The linkage rod between the nose wheel & the rudder servo needs to be secured or steering on the ground is poor, I simply ran the wire & tube through a hard foam block glued to the inner side of the fuselage. The supplied engine mount is to narrow for a 40 size engine.
Overall: Stable , well built this plane is a very common sight at many clubs and rightly so as its the perfect trainer.
