Darrell Williams 1  |  Feb 13, 2016

Strengths:
Flies very well and well capable of aerobatics, good model for the intermediate flyer. . . .
Weaknesses:
Motor mount needs replacing, it flexes too much resulting in vibration that can shake the nose apart (I know this!!!). Once replaced with a decent aluminium mount all is good. . .
Overall:
Great fun to fly model, well worth looking at. . . .

Strengths:
Very smooth, wide speed envelope, love the flight qualities. . . .
Weaknesses:
Motor mounting system is poor with bad resonance issues after a few flights. No vertical stability on the mount. . .
Overall:
Multiplex could make a great model so much better if the motor mount issues were sorted. . . .

Strengths:
Went together quicker than many so called ARF's, accurate mouldings fall into place, builds quickly into a very attractive biplane, plenty of room for radio gear and flight battery. . . .
Weaknesses:
Tailwheel wire fixing in the rudder could do with a bit of engineering and better instructions, canopy and latch featured old and new style fasteners - care needed to ensure matched sets. . . .
Overall:
Multiplex's kits keep getting better! Can't wait for a scale model. . . The spats are innovative and could have a ready market in various sizes!.

Strengths:
Very stable and Capable. . . .
Weaknesses:
Have had the top wing separate. . . .
Overall:
Reinforce the upper wing mounting, I resorted to a ply plate between the cabane struts with the bolt running through it. . . .

Romeo Whisky  |  Aug 06, 2009

Strengths:
Typical Multiplex top-quality design and build. . . .
Weaknesses:
If you fly off grass, dump the spats and fit bigger wheels. Suggest nylon washer to strengthen top wing retention as existing fitting can pull through in loops. Quite draggy, so use power-on landing to avoid nose-over. .
Overall:
A delight to fly. Feels totally solid and comfortable provided CG is right. . .

Strengths:
Easy to build, Well designed & well prepared kit. Durable. . .
Weaknesses:
Undercarriage keeps breaking off on rough field landings & a folding prop would be useful as fixed ones keep breaking on landing. Getting spares can be slow. Finding the C. of G.
Overall:
A good looking model that is great to fly and easy to own. Flies great even with the normal powerset. Does all the aerobatics that I will ever want to do! 2200MAH gives over 10minute flights. I have never flown a battery out to see how long it will last though.

Stephen Moon  |  Mar 18, 2008

Strengths:
ease of build, a dream to fly she takes off in less than 3 yards, is well mannered in flight and just looks awesome,landings are slow and predictable. . . .
Weaknesses:
The spats won't last long and the c of g can be hard to find. . . .
Overall:
A winner! the kit just shouts quality, this is my first Multiplex but I know that it will not be the last!!. . . .

Flies like a Sim Shrungs off bad landings that would destroy many planes. . . .
Weaknesses:
Doesn't like strong winds Can't go really fast. . . .
Overall:
Such a great model, really fun to fly, can fly very slow if required, durable, quite unique . . . I can't fault it.

Strengths:
Robust, Quick Easy Build, Large Performance Evelope, Pleasing to the eye!. . . .
Weaknesses:
Undercarriage Pops off. Noses over on rough ground on landings. Doesn't seem to bother it though. .
Overall:
This is my first power plane after an EZ Glider E and although its a big step up in performance it is very easy to fly (once you have flipped on the low rates). Still trying to set up COG as she needs a lot of down stick inverted, but I'm sure its more me than the model. Loops a charm and rolls are nice and axial. I went for the Acromaster powerplant, 10 x 5 prop (30 A) totally overpowered.

Mike Gray  |  Nov 30, 2007

Strengths:
Strong, stable, pop off under carriage,two hatches and loads of room for all the gear. Adjustable engine mount,only just over 2 lbs all up with 2200 3 cell lipo. . .
Weaknesses:
Still thinking. Non to date. . .
Overall:
Another star performer from Multiplex. I just love this machine. It pulls 38 Amps on a 10 x 5 on about 80% throttle (only got a 40 amp speedo) and uses 400 watts. Do the math.
