Strengths:
Flys like a dream. Very precice and easy to do large smooth monouvers with the right power. knife edge is locked in with the optional canalizer. Very lightweight.
Weaknesses:
COVERING! grrrrrrr. It looks great but lifts all the time. Go over it thougherly with an iron and stick down any stubborn lifts with canopy glue. .
Overall:

Strengths:
Outstandingly good at aerobatics. Very precise, very accurate and very rewarding to fly. Spins stop almost instantly, can't actually fault the handling at all. Structurally, it appears to be sound - nothing on the airframe has broken in about 5 months flying.
Weaknesses:
Covering tends to lift in large areas, needs a good going-over with an iron before assembly; could also benefit from sealing the edges with Prymol or similar. Wing bolt holes are blind and will require some fiddling around at assembly time unless the mount plate holes are slightly countersunk. Fuselage appeared to be slightly twisted which required some cutting and sanding to get the fin, stabilizer and wing to line-up correctly in front view. .
Overall:
I really like this model. Mine has an O. S. 70 FL mounted at 45 degrees (*just* possible) which provides barely enough power - the vertical performance isn't unlimited.
