Strengths:
The first thing that struck me when opening the box to this was the instructions, I could only find one flaw - a small bit of ambiguous text refering to the placement of a grp strip. The next thing that struck me was the fact that they had remembered everything in this kit; I went to the trouble of buying those little screw things that attach the push rod to the servo arm but they were inclueded. NOt only that, but they also inclued spares of things such as spare wing retaining o-rings. Oviusly, the build was very easy and only took a cuple of hours (and I am very slow!).
Weaknesses:
There are only three I can think of: it has no ailerons, which is a disadvantage when it comes to moving on to the next plane, although I did see a aileron equipped wing version at the southern model airshow. 2. You need to have a v tail mixer if you dont have one on your tx. This is just annoying when all you want to do is get her flying.
Overall:
I am glad I bought it! It has proved its selft the perfect trainer for when I cant get to the feild with my proper balsa one. One thing that I don't entirely understand though is the £45 price tag for the lump of foam that it is. The likes of GWS would sell you that type of thing for around £30 me thinks. THen again maby I am wrong.

Strengths:
Can be assembled in an evening. I use mine as a camera platform. It is very docile and forgiving to fly. .
Weaknesses:
The one piece wing can be awkward for transporting to the flying field. . . .
Overall:
Best to fly with a slight breeze to moderate wind strength. I found it difficult to become airborne on dead calm days. . .
