Strengths:
easy to assemble, goes exactly where you put it in the air. lands itself. good colours for orientation. no flying vices.
Weaknesses:
covering fades with fuel/time. thats about it. . .
Overall:
great first low winger or regular club hack which experienced flyers can ring out ! prices have crept up from £50 a few yrs ago to just under £70 but still a bargain. . . .

Strengths:
Easy build, strong, good undercarriage. . . .
Weaknesses:
This is my second one! So I guess not. . . .
Overall:
Flying on an OS46, it is great. I normally fly gliders and this was my first glow powered model. Easy to fly and land. Will do most gentle aeros, and will take seriously hard landings.

Strengths:
Will take a few knocks, great for novice pilots, lands as if on rails, great value for money. . . .
Weaknesses:
Covering splits easily. Needs fuel proofing in tank and bulkhead areas. . .
Overall:
This is a great little hack, it fly's very well and would i recommend it as a first low winger. Had mine 3 years, although a little rough round the edges i love it. . .

Djay  |  Aug 26, 2009

Strengths:
cheap, flies on rails, u/c tough as old boots, just goes on for ever, and easy to fly, looks different. . . .
Weaknesses:
Needs glue joints reinforcing with thin CA, and structure reinforcing behind the wing T/E in the fuse as it snaps in half here. . . .
Overall:
Excellant first low winger, flies like on rails, ideal for rough field, lasts for ever though the colour fades from the covering, but just recover in tex. . . .
