Strengths:
Relatively easy to assmble, flies well. Inexpensive for a plabe this size. . .
Weaknesses:
Wood quality not brilliant, the covering is delicate and lands rather quickly - I am reluctant to slow it up too much as I think it has rather a high stalling speed compared to something like a WOT 4. Would be a lot better with flaps. I am considering modifying the wing to fit them. .
Overall:
Good hack, quick to build and very well priced. . . .

Strengths:
Cheap, but good quality kit, strong and the u/c can soak up landings well. . . .
Weaknesses:
Tail seems weak, can cause flutter at high speed. Covering is very fragile, being PVC sticky stuff. Will burst if prodded on cold days, and will get hanger rash quickly. .
Overall:
Apart from the covering, does look good and very aerobatic, but good follow-on low-wing trainer. . . .

Paul Trasler  |  Jan 12, 2010

Strengths:
Easy to fly Very cheap. . . .
Weaknesses:
Airframe splinters and disintegrates on the slightest landing error because the formers and wing ribs split along the grain. . . .
Overall:
I have now had 3 of these because they were so cheap - under £50. The first was destroyed when the elevator clevis dismantled itself in flight, the second wing fell apart when the wingtip touched on landing. The third is still awaiting repair after a slightly heavy landing. If you can fly then get a better plane, if you can't then get something stronger.

Weaknesses:
The aircraft is weak from the covering which is easily damaged to the build quality the wood is fragile and just holding the aircraft the balsa cracks. and wont stand upto a heavy landing they break just behind the wing/cockpit. . .
Overall:

Strengths:
Flys well, ideal for learning basic aerobatics loops, rolls & spins, great first low wing model. . . .
Weaknesses:
Covering tears easily, main undercarriage needs slight bend forward for better stability. Will drop a wing if air speed drops too much. . .
Overall:
Great value for money. . . .
