GREAT FLYING MACHINE
Strengths: Fantastic flight performance
Weaknesses: Motor and esc my 1st model crashed due to esc failure the 2nd one I have had the esc replaced and found issues with the motor after only a few flights burnt out turns and a rough bearing.
Overall: Without the quality issues this is a fantastic model a great f3a practice model. I removed the as3x my preference it's not needed. Come on Horizon great customer service that costs us return postage yet all the issues are quality issues on what are high end motors and esc.

OK
Strengths: Ready to fly package
Weaknesses: As3x receiver Motor has issues
Overall: This is my 3rd aircraft with the as3x receiver I am not a fan I have replaced them with standard receivers. After only a few flights I have noticed pulsing on the motor under climb another motor issue I have had the same with my Splendor awaiting new motor. I know Horizon have great customer service but they seem to have lots of issues on quality products and you pay for return postage each time. I find the wing re tension system could be made simpler

THE BEST
Strengths: Version 5 has the best quadcopters of any sim. The model selection screen is organised very well.
Weaknesses: The instructors's voice isn't clear on the training videos.
Overall: As a novice flyer I have learnt more from this sim than any other.
