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.

GREAT BUDGET GLIDER
Strengths: Vice free handling,finds lift in light conditions. Robust fuselage
Weaknesses: Motor mount need beefing up if running as a powered glider. Wing mounts can tear out in a hard landing. Easy to convert to banded on wing
Overall: A great glider for the novice and experianced pilot. I run mine as a full house glider with crow,camber,reflex and snap flaps.

GREAT GLIDER, EVEN BETTER VALUE
Strengths: easy to fly, with no quirks. Glides forever. Can be quite fast. Catches thermals well
Weaknesses: Needs flap servos. Foam hinges need checking for cracks after a while
Overall: Great performance for the price. As mentioned really need flaps for best landings. I've found a 3s 1800 gives best performance to weight. Did I mention great value?

A GREAT GLIDER FOR ANYONE FROM NEW TO ADVANCED FLYER!
Strengths: Quick and easy build. Room for battery upto 2200ish size, pre formed flaps. Substantial accessories pack including glider only nosecone. Servos pre fitted for Elevator, Rudder and Ailerons.
Weaknesses: Decals, as always a pain to put on. Not pre fitted with servos on flaps.
Overall: For the cost, this glider is a great model. Goes together perfectly. Do use the flaps as landings can be long and fast otherwise! Absolute value for money!
