BEAUTIFUL AIRCRAFT
Strengths: Very easy to learn on. Takeoffs,landings are easy which is the hardest thing to learn. You don't have to use safe to do this,its there for backup
Weaknesses: Soft cowling that can break easy.undercart will take a few knocks best to lose the plastic trim so you can bend them stait again after a heavy landing
Overall: A very enjoyable trainer which has helped me. And now I find it fun to fly and enjoy.

PERFECT IF YOU WANT TO FLY
Strengths: strong practically indestructible, reliable plane easy to assemble
Weaknesses: cowl breaks easily but very cheap to replace. the wing straps break if you crash, limited power from brushed motor gearbox setup.
Overall: If you want to learn to fly, you cant beat this plane. I bought mine second hand and i must have crashed it 30 times!!!! only things i broke was the motor cowl and the wing straps. Ive knocked the wings off, flew full throttle into the ground, hit a small tree and within minutes it was flying again LOL.....has so much fun with this plane, thank you Super Cub, i gave it away to a lad who wanted to fly and its suited his style.

GREAT R/C STARTER PLANE
Strengths: For just over 100 at certain outlets, the latest version iscomplete with Spektrum type 2.4 ghz receiver, a 1300mah LiPo battery,a 480 motor, everything installed and ready to bind with minimal assembly, it's brilliant. Strong, easy to fly if a bit light for windy days, and can be easily modified and upgraded as you go, and all parts easily available if you really bust one up.
Weaknesses: U/C design not great and wheels too small for a grass strip. Battery box a bit too tight for all but stock Hobbyzone battery, but lots of ways round this.
Overall: Has turned me from a long-term free flight only guy to a keen pilot as well, which just about sums it up.

SO EASY TO FLY A CHILD COULD FLY IT
Strengths: its a perfect model for the first time flyer and with the anti crash technology its almost impossible to lose control of it in flight, as long as you are not to close to the ground about 60 meters up and you should be ok. as for the price its cheap as chips and spare parts are cheap too,it will trundle around the sky at 50% power with ease and with full power it will do loops and stalls too without to much effort. a good solid build with easy to follow instuctions. any repairs can be done with a hot glue gun(better than just tape). battery power will let you fly at 100% power for at least 10 minutes. even if you lose battery power it will easily glide down for a safe landing.
Weaknesses: no major ones to speak of though but the under wing struts are a bit weak at the point they connect to the wings. the wings tend to move around a little under the elastic bands so check the wing alignment after every flight. the thin wire undercarrage tends to bend a bit under constant landings so check these aswell. the screw to the battery hatch can come loose sometimes. don't try to fly in to stronger winds as this model is very light and hard to control in strong winds for the novice.
Overall: a great starter model for the novice at a budget price. easy to fix when landings are a bit heavy or when crashed, so if you want to learn to fly the clean and easy way get the supercub.
