Strengths:
Graceful on the slopes in light wind. Good penetration in stronger winds. Easy to fly and land. .
Weaknesses:
Wing servo connectors never worked reliably and had to be remodelled. ESC difficult to programme for auto braking using TX. . .
Overall:
Now that the above teething problems are sorted I love flying this plane. Good build quality and stands up to some hard landings. Flies well with the recommended settings for control deflections. .

Strengths:
quality mouldings, good instructions, flies very well, generally well engineered, pretty rugged. . . .
Weaknesses:
The wing joiner!. . . .
Overall:
Despite the fairly well known wing joiner problems, this is a fine aeroplane that's happy sport flying or catching a thermal. She makes a great camera ship too. . .

Strengths:
Flies absolutely superbly . . . a majestic, impressive foam glider that is a joy to fly.
Weaknesses:
Niggling design weaknesses: the wing joiner mechanism and the tailplane joiner mechanism are tricky to build and come loose in flight a little too easily, and the nose is a little weaker than it ought to be. . . .
Overall:
I want to give this 10 out of 10 because of its inspiring flight performance, but it doesn't quite deserve it because it has a few slight design weaknesses. It looks great and flies so well that it gives you a real sense of elation. But take great care building the wing joiner with its tricky plug-in servo connectors. Regularly check that it is secure, as well as the tailplane mechanism.
