Strengths:
Easy build. Easy to transport and rig at the field. Lovely flyer with vice free slow speed for greaser landings, I still have the spats after 6 years use. Almost Funfly performance on a ASP61 four stroke.
Weaknesses:
The Engine mounting clamp plates broke regularly until I replaced the Ally with Steel. . . .
Overall:
A joy to own and fly. . . .

Strengths:
Very light for its size, performs extremely well on recomended power plant, nice colour scheme (blue & white). Secondary blind nuts installed for extra gear to accomodate floats. . .
Weaknesses:
Landing gear plate a little weak if model "arrives" rather than lands, engine mounting bars subject to failure if larger than recomended engine used or if excessive vibration present due to unbalanced prop or crank. Also the covering job left a little to be desired as there was some debris between the covering and the wing ribs in a couple pf spots, just a little more care with cleanup before applying the film would have eliminated this but then I am a fussy beggar. . .
Overall:
Super value $240 plus shipping, a real floater, very easy to fly good second model capable of most precision moves (and some 3D if you have the skills) looks very vintage on those low slow passes down the runway and very gracefull performing the Derry turn, definitely a keeper. Since first writing this review I have built a set of foam floats for the rascal and can say it looks just as gracefull on floats as it does on wheels and the OS 52 4 stroke turning a 12x6 APC prop has more more than enough power to get this 6lb model off the water the wing has a lot of lift, "amazing", sad that they do not seem to be available anymore. . .
