Strengths:
Nice robust build and if you manage to duff the undercart you really HAVE been trying!!!. . . .
Weaknesses:
Dare I say it's not as extreme as some pilots would have you believe. The tai, skid gives no ground clearance for the elevator, but than it's not on the ground much!!!. . .
Overall:
Fitted a SC91 2S to mine. . . .

Strengths:
Dependingon rates in or out this turns from docile bipe trainer to 3d. well built easy to fly, doenst need a big flying patch!. . .
Weaknesses:
Aileron links. Change them for carbon rods with metal clevices or face them popping out on mega deflection manuevers - still controllable with only lower ailerons working though!. . .
Overall:
A design which has stood the test of time, flys great, does all the 3d moves, docile when you want it to be. Disproves the myth about bipes being difficult to fly - they are not and nor is this. . .

Strengths:
It's very easy to put together (takes just a few pleasurable hours), wings come in one piece, heavy duty hardware, complete with fuel tank, wheels, collets, etc. It can fly in panic mode or docile mode, easy to land, its looks, very well made, etc. . .
Weaknesses:
weaknesses, no stickers and tail skid. I fitted a stearable tail wheel controlled by the rudder. . .
Overall:
Overall, it's so impressive that my club mates all want one. It's so good in the air and on the ground. And it's a biplane. .
