Strengths:
Flying characteristics are just awesome. Great size too, flies in moderately windy conditions just fine. Two-piece wing means transportation isn't a problem. Very sturdy airframe but no sign of weakness.
Weaknesses:
Undercarriage mounting plate will give up on you if you over-load the weight or have too many bumpy arrivals. A lot of building to get the best results for an ARTF. . .
Overall:
Immediately noticeable was how agile she was, even flying extremely slowly there was plenty of control available to me and tracking across the sky either upright, inverted or knife-edge was very straight and controllable. Up high, the stall needed so much pushing into it could hardly be termed as a stall at all and the ensuing flat spin fluttered down very gently. Back up again for an elevator and there was no wing rock at all right down to the bottom where a harrier was executed at a very slow walking pace up the strip and a shallow turn, still in the stalled condition, to come back again. I’ve flown a lot of models of this size and this one is definitely the best in the group.
