Strengths:
well built strong airframe, nice fitting canopy, large battery tray. . . .
Weaknesses:
rudder authority, weak cowl at bottom. . . .
Overall:
very nice plane, looks the part, but mine veers off to the left on hand launch, hit the deck 2nd launch, caught me out, think its because Im using a 3 blade prop, recently put a 2 blade on and it launched a lot better, must be increased torque, I now have all 3 warbird fighters, spit, mustang and 109, the spit is the best flyer then the mustang. 109 is ok but not as good at the others. . .

Strengths:
Mean business looking with with great covering and flies well. . . .
Weaknesses:
Had to replace rudder and ele control snakes due to binding. motor mounting pulled out on first flight. I found the spinner impossible to balance (silly idea?). .
Overall:
I was disapointed when on first flight partiall loss of control was experienced, on landing I found this was due to the motor and mount hanging out. The inrunner motor used pulls 350 watts on a 3s li-po which give a great performance and rockets away from a hand launch. . .

Strengths:
Looks great- trimmed right,flies like a fighter. Covering is excellent. It is strong. I landed out of sight, on its back and there was no damage to the back end.
Weaknesses:
Difficult to hand launch. Needs a strong throw and Level!! I use a dolly - launches well off that. We used clevises on the aileron servo rods- the default linkage protruded too far and the grass caught it on landing- remember, no U/C. .
Overall:
Smashing plane . Looks good, flies well. I use a folding prop - 72mm bar-. .

Strengths:
quality ARTF Kit, super cowling, flies great. . . .
Weaknesses:
Throw the spinner and buy a proper one. the supplied one is surely a joke. . .
Overall:
Well built kit very strong and great to fly. Have now converted it to IC power, underpowered with a 20 four stroke, have now fitted a twentysix 4 stroke, use a dolly for take off. Great for chasing spits. I love it!.

Strengths:
A quality kit with very clear instructions. Improved engine mount, nice cowling and underside radiators. . .
Weaknesses:
Still including the like eggshell spinner, could do with somthing more robust. . . .
Overall:
Excellent kit, everything you need apart from the Radio gear,glue, motor train and Lipo. Clear instructions all the parts fitted well. Very nice to fly,has great presence in the air. Make sure you can hand launch well or let somebody launch it for you on your first few flights.
