Strengths:
Flies really well and has a great sit in the air, flight performance belies it's size. Good scale detail. . .
Weaknesses:
Lightweight contrstuction means it's easily damaged. Mines a year or so old and looks very Soviet now. . .
Overall:
Great flight performance and looks. Can take off from grass using ailerons for steering!. Be careful with the hand launch, get it nose up and it goes into a deep stall, no propwash means no recovery and there's not quite enough power to accelerate to flying speed. .

Strengths:
Flies really well, can go a little slower than you might imagine without stalling, and can also go pretty darn fast. . . .
Weaknesses:
Fragile - won't survive many knocks. . . .
Overall:
A beauty, looks great, flies great. But beginners stay away! Those nice flying qualities derive from the light weight, which is achieved by the thin foam construction. This will not take rough handling in the car or bad landings. You'll need a large area of nice smooth grass for landing.
