Strengths:
Mine was EPS, when covered in tissue and PU varnish makes it strong - and cheap. Good space to fit different motor/lipo combos. Looks great, flies well with a good power setup. .
Weaknesses:
Can be a bit twitchy - keep cog well forward. Cowl is weak but resilient when padded. Hand launching can be difficult. .
Overall:
I love flying this despite its tip stall tendency! I would get another when mine does not return from a mission. . . .

Strengths:
unusual subject, flies well on budget powertrain/servos. . . .
Weaknesses:
decals are truly brittle rubbish, cowling is too thin and easily broken (add some glass mat reinforcement)and poor nosecone fitment. . . .
Overall:
nice looking model, bit twitchy and can bite but ok if flown sensibly. repaint in a different scheme and add own graphics. . .

Strengths:
Mine was EPS painted. Easy build - looks marvellous in the air. Flies well at scale speeds in rolls etc. .
Weaknesses:
Viscious torque roll on hand launch. Lost high in a tree on second flight after major 35Mhz glitching. . .
Overall:
Sad to lose it - was really enjoying it. . . .

Airwilf  |  May 01, 2009

Strengths:
Mine is the EPO version & it`s very strong with thick reinforced wings & tail. Looks gorgeous in the air. Easy build. .
Weaknesses:
It has a very visious tip stall when pushed & needs careful handling. Decals are brittle rubbish. Cowling has survived so far but worries me when landing. ps.
Overall:
Easy build, strong airframe, looks great. Try & find better decals (or get some inkjet friendly vinyl & print your own). If thrown around this will bite you in the ass (tip=use expo to soften elevator). Fly smoothly & will respond well.
