GOOD FIRST TRAINER
Strengths: Kit quality is excellent as with all Multiplex. Easy build. Very easy to fly as a 4 channel. My son (10) is starting out on it and is settling in well. Predictable, handles a little breeze well. Stall is gentle and forgiving.
Weaknesses: Not cheap but it is good quality. Make sure you get servos that fit the servo holders as not all do. Probably a model that you will grow out of quickly once you advance beyond the novice stage as it is very stable.
Overall: You cannot beat a pusher for training on. It takes the inevitable prangs. Not cheap but you do get a very well manufactured model. Better than E-flite which is nowhere near bad.

GREAT QUALITY, GOOD PLANE
Strengths: Enjoyable to fly. Responsive, loops and rolls very easily. Stable, gentle stall characteristics.
Weaknesses: Imperative it is trimmed correctly. Use manufacturers recommended settings for your first dual rate setting then double them for the second. If not trimmed as recommended it is a pig to fly.
Overall: Once set up it is a blast to fly. A 1350mA 3s battery suits it well. Probably not a first trainer unless you have a buddy box

GOOD VALUE
Strengths: Great glider
Weaknesses: Wing mounts a bit poor'tends to climb a bit steep if too much power on take off.
Overall: Can't fault it for the money,wish I'd bought the kit version most of the electrics "died" after a while.
