Strengths: Easy to fly.
Pretty to look at.
Long flight time.
Weaknesses: Poor linkage.
Poor bell brushless motor.
Overall: Bought this little one while on holiday in OZ a few year back. I knew what to expect from a ready to fly foamy but could not spend 3 weeks on road trip without flying I'm sure most of you do understand.
Flying that plane is really easy and top notch relaxing but make sure it is not too windy when you do or it's not nice anymore :-)
A few things so. Make sure to re-inforce the struts, mainly at there joining point with the wing or the first gust of wind will unglue them and if you lucky like me only the middle one will go allowing you to keep flying into the landing.
Make sure your prop is well balanced the brushless provided is one of the cheap bell motor and un-balanced prop will break the mount really quickly.
In overall I loved that plane shame it didn't grow old nicely mainly because of the point above. The flying time for the 3s 1500mha is over 10min and if you fly it like me a third of the throttle it's enough you can manage flight over 15 to 18 min.
Mine is still in flying condition but need to be repaired a bit mainly linkage and broken rudder. If anyone interrested pm me or I'll post it in the classified probably soon.
Power line do brake plane ;-)
