FANTASTIC - GET ONE!
Strengths: Great looking, easy to fly, well made, very light. Suits a Saito 125 perfectly.
Weaknesses: Feather scheme trim lifts at edges, patching would be difficult. Hatch locating holes get too large with wear.
Overall: I love this airplane, performance with a Saito 125 is epic! I broke it by being stupid - I have to get another

WHAT A WASTE OF MONEY.
Strengths: Looks very nice, and went together easily.
Weaknesses: 1). Manufacturers recommended CG appears to be wrong, but didnh't get a chance to figure it out. 2). More serious is the wing stall with very little elevator. Couldn't even do a loop without snapping out. Eventually, nosed in, after snapping out of a very conservative Split S. Very disappointing flight performance.
Overall: This model was built with an OS 60 2 cycle engine. It is difficult to tell if the disasterous flight performance of this model was caused by manufacturers recommended CG being in the wrong place, inadequate engine power, or some other problem, but like other reviewers, I found it very disappointing. A great shame. I was looking forward to flying this beautiful looking model.

GOOD FIRST WARBIRD
Strengths: Good instruction manual. Very nice flyer. Good first warbird.
Weaknesses: Plastic mechanical retracts are fragile.
Overall: Easy to put together, good instructions. Plastic retracts are a bit fragile and will probably break if you have to straighten the legs. However, very rewarding to fly, has a definite presence in the air, very smooth, stall behaviour with the c.g in the middle of the range is exemplary - normally it just wallows and nods the nose a bit. And landings with flaps can be a thing of beauty! Requires tail weight with an RCV-91CD, would be better with a Laser 80/100 or an OS 91 - be warned though, it will only just climb with a 14x6 prop turning at 8000 rpm on an new engine - a 14x7 at about 9000 rpm is more than enough. A good first warbird if you can land properly.
