Strengths:
Can fly slowly and turn well without dropping. Easy for indoor beginners, good in smaller halls. Takes the rough and tumble of contact with walls and other models. Will roll, knife edge and prop hang.
Weaknesses:
Instructions: a) give a CG that is way to far back, b) have the undercarriage to close to the fuselage This means you can only prop hang and can't ROG takeoff. I put the CG about 90mm back from the LE and all is good. . .
Overall:
My Hornet has campaigned in three indoor sorties with a contact rate of one every 3 minutes of air time. Its had 5 tea-break sessions in the garden and is still ready for more. The carbon fibre that stiffens the wings also protects from prop strikes and the 8mm EPP absorbs the carnage. Its been flown by myself, my son and some chaps that normally fly 'Embers' - we all took to it in a couple of circuits.
