Strengths:
Inexspensive, easy to build, will fly on a cheap brushless set up. great fun to fly ect ect. . .
Weaknesses:
As mentioned flimsy cowl other than that nothing at all. . . .
Overall:
You cannot go wrong for the money. Get the slope version and fit your own power train. Half an hour with the air brush and you have it looking really nice. I put a Tornado thumper 480w motor with a 40 amp esc and it can be lauched under arm and climbs away hands off.

Strengths:
Easy to build, low cost, bags of fun to fly. . . .
Weaknesses:
Poorly translated instructions, fragile cowling, shiny decals. . . .
Overall:
Unless you have a flying site with a tarmac runway, buy the slope glider version and hand launch/belly land. The white foam gives you full scope to use one of the many colour schemes used on the full size, or even a bit of imagination! Not a first model, but with a 2408/21 "bell" outrunner would be a nice first low-winger, or stick in a 2215/20 and 10x6 prop and beat up the field!. . .

Icarus  |  Dec 22, 2008

Strengths:
Low cost. Looks Performance Very quick build. . .
Weaknesses:
Decals - plentiful, but too shiny GWS glue takes some getting used to (use it as contact adhesive) Dings and scratches easily. . . .
Overall:
Now I love traditional building, but this is a fantastic value kit for £25 - very complete (who else give you 'Y' leads in the kit for example?). Whilst the std expanded polystyrene version does scratch easily, it is a tough model and takes knocks well (who notices scratches when it is flying anyway. Looks the part in the air and truly flies well. I used an e-max 2215/25 motor and a 3s 2200 lipo - Not over powered, but no weakling either, just right.
