Strengths:
For £125 ish from SMC this was a great buy. I needed a trainer for my wife to learn with and this little plane came out of the box and flew after a 45 minute charge. Hand launched, with rudder, elevator and throttle control on a left hand slider control, this little plane performs faultlessly in light winds on summer evenings. .
Weaknesses:
The motor gear on the main shaft failed and the plane nose dived in a stall before I could wrestle the controls from my wifes hands!!. The resulting crash from 200ft did litle damage but the search for a replacement drive shaft was frustrating. So I replaced the motor with a brushless outrunner and 3 cell lipo and now it goes like a bat out if hell. .
Overall:
Nice little plane, well built fibre glass fus and decal set that means you won't miss it at the flying field. Now out of production according to Parkzone website. . .
