Strengths:
Great finish & scale appearance. Good, comprehensive instructions. flies really well. .
Weaknesses:
Not much space to fit everything inside! Not sure how robust the fan to motor mounting is - but no problems after half an hour'd flying so far. Transfers are not robust - especially the yellow stripe round the fuselage - easily damaged on hand launching. will probably take them off & paint. Wing stripes also flimsy.
Overall:
Flight performance is great on Keda KB20-40-12L 4800kv Inrunner Brushless Motor & Sp 40A ESC. looks great in the air, & lands really slowly (but v flat glide, so needs dome space!). . .

Strengths:
lovely detail and finish for a foamy. Easy build with decent instructions for a change. Decent 3 blade fan included. Several decal schemes included for you to choose your favourite.
Weaknesses:
Very easily marked /damaged due to fragile construction and "skin" of the foam easily lined /creased. Decals are water slide and easily damaged - protect with varnish. Not easy to remove fan unit if required later. .
Overall:
Despite some weaknesses, this is a fabulous little model. Easy to transport, easy hand launch, and lovely scale flyer. Everyone who sees it fly loves it. One of my all time favourite little models in over 30 years of the hobby, and when mine eventually dies it WILL be replaced.
