Strengths: This is an exceptionally pretty and easily assembled aircraft that flies brilliantly. The covering material was notably wrinkle free and the overlaid patterns/designs align beautifully suggesting that much care & attention has been devoted to it.
Weaknesses: In terms of construction it was exceptionally straightforward with only one minor ambiguity regarding control horns (2 types supplied but contradictory instructions as to which control surface they should be fitted to) putting a very minor blot on the SebArt copy book. I still have some reservations about the strength of the carbon fibre undercarriage. Mine snapped completely on the fourth landing (only *very* slightly less than a perfect greaser) which makes me think the u/c perhaps had a manufacturing fault. The expensive replacement (40 quid, ughhh!) has been fine so far.
Overall: A fine aircraft that has far greater capabilities than my own modest club flyer abilities are ever likely to exploit. In a nutshell, it just feels 'right' in the air. Don't be tempted to use a battery much smaller than 5000 mAh because you will inevitably end up adding lead to the nose to get the correct CoG.
