A VERY GOOD FLYER
Strengths: Very easy to transport, simply plug and play
Weaknesses: None
Overall: A very good model in any conditions. I did the test flight in 13 knots wind and landed prefectly. In the course of my experience in this hobby, this model is one of the best model I have ever flown.

EXCELLENT
Strengths: Rugged, reliable components, flies great. Light and forgivving.
Weaknesses: Sometimes control surface blow-back at speed.
Overall: Needs calmer conditions but a superb aerobatic hack and practice machine.

IN CALM WEATHER THE NICEST PLANE I HAVE EVER FLOWN.
Strengths: Straightforward assembly - balances perfectly with 2200 3S - needs minimal trimming. Flies beautifully .
Weaknesses: Put an afternoon aside to put it together, then the evening for the stickers (but worth the effort). You have to relocate the ESC which is a pain.
Overall: Looks the part on the ground, and flies even better than it looks, flatters your flying, lands itself. Construction time on the box is a fiction put about by Ripmax's marketing department bearing no relation to reality which is a shame. I like the plane so much I am determined to acquire an ARTF AcroWot for a "70 four stroke" for the Winter.

GREAT SMALL FIELD AEROBAT
Strengths: Looks, ease of assembly, and it takes the very popular 2200mAh 3s LiPo.
Weaknesses: Poor molding quality in places(excess flashing)and poorly balanced prop.
Overall: Despite the high-ish price tag this is a very sweet handling aerobatic foamie and would make a good introduction to low wing flying with low rates. For those wanting a bit more excitement, crank up the throws and tie it knots! It's no 3D model, but it is extremely aerobatic and easily handles moderate winds.

PROBABLY THE BEST FOAMY I HAVE EXPERIENCED, AND I HAVE MORE THAN A FEW.
Strengths: A very well thought out design with some nice touches like plastic wingtip protection skid plates, plastic wing servo wells, substantial U/C and tail wheel mountings. The Decals are the tops for decoration as well as being the thinnest I've seen. The model flies with superb ease and responds to the controls with precision. The main wheels do look a bit small but I must say that my preferred flying field is a park where the grass is nothing like as short as my club strip and I've found no problems.
Weaknesses: The battery aperture will accommodate a maximum of a 3 cell 2200 lipo which is adequate for a five minute plus flight anyway. Servos are of the budget type but no different to similarly priced models which I have always found adequate anyway.
Overall: A very nice model that flies every bit as well as any Foss design. The legendary and beautiful lines of the AcroWot are reproduced perfectly in this slightly smaller version

CRACKING, QUICK-TO-FLY AEROBAT
Strengths: Design - elegant lines, well thought out
Weaknesses: Kit(mostly the smaller components), of a budget quality and not up to best standards. e.g. The model would appear to share the same hardware (and construction) as used on the 'ST Discovery'. (A model which, with upgrades, I have flown well over 100+ flights with). The failings IMHO are: weak axles and tiny wheels. (If subject to use on the average rough patch and not on a smooth strip). Budget motor and ESC. Servos as included, have been known to fail and are not of particularly good resolution. I replaced with Hitec 65MGs which fit perfectly. The prop collet is made of soft alloy, tighten it on the motor shaft and you'll have a job shifting it to remove. Suggest replace with a better quality one, spinner too! A 'Wotty' with no pilot figure, every plane should have one unless it's a drone, fit one! (The canopy can be gently eased away from its double sided tape and silicone sealent adhesive glue).
Overall: Minor moans aside, a great, quick to get in the air aerobatic model. Upgrade the motor, ESC and hardware and you can go to town on the Aresti schedule!
