KELL  |  Jul 15, 2013

Strengths:
Easy assembly. It's done for you almost. Beautiful looking model. It actually flys on rails.
Weaknesses:
The undercarriage has come off a few times. More due to pilot and bumpy rough grass strip. Put a carbon undercarriage on a extra thick ply base, job done. .
Overall:
It's the model I always have with me when I go to the field. The first one I fly first to warm up the fingers, and the last relaxing flight of the day too. With a few fun flights in between of course. A true fly antime model.

Strengths:
Ease of build striking colour scheme quality of materials looks. Almost no gluing means no mess. The only glue is used around the canopy but you can use clear trim or tape to do the job just as well. .
Weaknesses:
I found it difficult to find a weakness with this model. the spinner is a little roapy but easily fixed. . .
Overall:
Great quality, easy build, great flyer, not for the novice though. . . .

Strengths:
Very easy to assemble. Priced right. Flys superbly and will do all the airobatics I am capable of and more. Lands like a feather and if C of G is correct flys straight from box.
Weaknesses:
NONE. . . .
Overall:
A super product and would not go to the flying site without it. . . .

260 Flyer  |  Jun 07, 2008

Strengths:
Really quick assembly. A great flyer, from slow and relaxed to manic and will manage club style aerobatics. Takes a bit of a breeze in its stride. Can be eaisily disassembled and packed back into its box - great for holidays!.
Weaknesses:
A bit on the heavy side the bare airframe weighs in at 20 oz. Build and finish not as good as some, the pre hinged control surfaces stiff. . .
Overall:
Assembly couldn’t be quicker just fit the motor and servo's, bolt on the wings, tail and undercarriage, screw on the cowl and canopy - Go Fly! The wings have a bit of dihedral so aerobatics won't be precision. The Mini Pulse uses up a lot of sky and this is definitely not a 3D machine or even a park flyer. The covering could not be described as skilful as evidenced by lots of iron marks, dings and ragged edges to the film. The pre-hinged control surfaces were so stiff that they stalled the recommended micro servos.
