landing gear needs to be more forward, sits on its nose when landing far to easy. . . .
Overall:

Strengths:
Good scale outline and build quality good throughout. . . .
Weaknesses:
Factory fitted retracts are a little bit "wobbly" but landing with flaps takes the edge off a less than sometimes perfect approach. The belly pan requires fitting each time at the field and was modified to a dowel and screw fitment as could see myself becoming very frustrated with the small screws that are meant to hold it in place. The fibreglass gear doors on my kit were excessively curved and touched the wheels,I decided to make some up from 1/32 ply with a balsa backing and gently curve whilst the contact cement was drying, they were then covered in black and white chequered Profilm and really look the part. .
Overall:
Looks tremendous doing low "beats ups" of the field. OK, our field is actually 300m x 40m of smooth tarmac with pit areas that would make the average club think they are in heaven. It sends shivers down your spine when the RCV 91 CD is at full throttle and only 3ft off the ground !! Otherwise the plane has handled extremes of temp from close on 45° in summer and "down" to 16° during chilly winter mornings. I have been flying now for 32 years and this must rank up there with the best of them.
