NOT THE BEST
Strengths: Its solid I suppose
Weaknesses: a horrible plane to fly IMO You have to carve a big chunk out to accommodate the mixture needle on a 2 stroke thats very poor design. Iv'e flown a few and you can do a lot better for your money.
Overall: Buy a Seagull models trainer

TOUGH, CHEAP AND STRAIGHT FLYING
Strengths: Easy build well made kit. Easy enough to fly by virtual beginner and can cope with some really tough weather conditions without getting too out of shape. Great fun and capable of most aerobatics. It's really cheap for this much fun.
Weaknesses: The undercarriage mounting point really needs to be strengthened.
Overall: Mines fitted with an Irvine .61 which is a touch heavy but it flies like an arrow and responds incredibly well to inputs. Easy to land but has to be brought in fairly fast unless you want to program fapperons which can slow things down a bit. This is the model I turn to when conditions are just too challenging and risky for your expensive kit. Buy one, you won't regret it.

GOOD LOOKING AND EASY FLYING
Strengths: Flies very well. Flaps work well to slow landing. An inverted <95 or so four stroke fits easily in the cowling and sounds great on this model .
Weaknesses: Tail wheel/rudder control wire diameter needs increasing as its too soft and springy. I used much thicker wire. The Pilots are too heavy and look awful.
Overall: Oleo wheels look great but inner wires on wing need bending forward so the wheels are near the front of the wing. This points the undercarriage forward and prevents frequent nose overs on taxiing.
