IS WHAT YOU WOULD EXPECT OF A WOT 4
Strengths: Very quick to finish model to get flying though perhaps not as quick as you might think, but being careful rewards you with a lovely model that looks and flies really nicely.
Weaknesses: Some of the parts do feel a little 'fragile' for example moulded cowl felt a little too thin and flimsy to me.
Overall: Reasonable value for money, good flying performance and short kit to complete ready to fly time.

Strengths: Fairly strong and robust in the fuselage, other than the battery compartment door I thought a bit of a poor feature
Weaknesses: I found there were slight weakness problem with the wing tips, on the rear corners
Overall: A very good flyer, quite fast, and agile for a foam-m, I found the CG to be fairly good at 30mm from the front of the wing with no additional ballast, flown with a 3s 2200ma

I LOVE IT.
Strengths: Well made. Flies like a Wot4 should. Good in wind
Weaknesses: Some of the accessories are of dubious quality, though the spinner is excellent. Quite weighty.One wing half is heavier than the other. Battery compartment is quite restrictive on battery size. The instructions still agve the wrong CofG.
Overall: In the late 80s I used a kit built Wot4 as an aileron trainer. It lasted for several seasons before I hit the hard and unforgiving tarmac at Hucknall MAC's runway. It did, however, leave a strong feeling of nostalgia so, having gone all electric, the new one went on my must have list. Until the CofG was sorted, I was a little put off by forum reports. As it is it still has a bit of lead in the front. The Battery box appears to be made to take a 3 cell 2200, but on one of these it is gutless with poor duration. I found some 3 cell 2600s that fitted, which improved the duration but did nothing to the performance. I then tried a 4 cell 2300 which provided the performance but not the duration. finally I managed to source a 4 cell 2800 from Flying Widgets that just fits and now gives a respectable duration with a performance to match my old Wotty.

WHAT A SURPRISE!
Strengths: Very well built. Looks great. Chunky and strong. Flies like the foamie only better - will handle wind and gusts better than foamie. Feels like a 'real' model! Most decals already applied. You fit your own power system and servos so you are not paying for cheapies you might replace anyway!
Weaknesses: Weight of elevator control rods. Closed loop for rudder could be better. Manual COG wrong!!
Overall: After building I was very disappointed in the overall weight - in excess of 4 lbs flying weight! Lots of ballast needed to balance at the COG stated in manual (70mm) - flew like it was dragging its backside across the sky. Ripmax have now made it known that the published COG is wrong and it should be set 20mm further back - that transforms this aircraft - I now love it!
