Strengths:
Excellent quality kit, goes together really well. Air scoops for motor are a nice touch. Brilliant flyer, either low and slow just mooching around, or up the rates and power and it will do the book. .
Weaknesses:
Maybe spats on long grass/rough field, I've left mine off. . . .
Overall:
I'm using an AXI 2217/16 11 x 5. 5 and 1800/2100 3s lipo's just enough power to accelerate vertically but I'm sure there are more powerful options. Everything about this plane is nice and the carbon fusion reinforcement does seem more than gimmick. I bought this to replace my 2nd Fliton Mini Extra which had folded its wings in flight (just like the first) and the PA quality and design is much better than the Fliton to me.

Strengths:
Really predictable flying, highly responsive to both starting and stopping a manuver, a confidence builder. Full of charm and proper rightness at the sticks. Handles up to 15mph winds. Good build quality, with a clear concise manual that tells you what you need to know at the right point, good CG and throw documentation.
Weaknesses:
There is one --- watch that tail wheel, it is delicate, when you build it look at the instructions carefully! Watch out for the construction of the push rods, its a measure twice do once operation. . . .
Overall:
It goes together well, the carbon fibre parts giving a great aesthetic. Makes you feel good about the build process because of the fit and finish. Having built a range of ARTF kits now PA are easily double top notch. A first timer could do this.

Strengths:
Flys particularly nicely, nice and crisp, precise, and gentle (on low rates). BUt is completely mental on high rates. banging in full up elevator at full speed (even in vertical dives) still gets me giggling like a girl as it does the squarest pullouts you will ever see!. .
Weaknesses:
It's a little bit fragile for clumsy oafs such as myself. It is not stupidly fragile though, it still takes a fair knock or two, but that's what you get for extreme lightweight though :). . .
Overall:
Fantastic. Even for 3D amateurs, it is perfect for flat calm evenings when you want to let your hair down (or giggle like a girl if you don't have much hair like me). . .
