Strengths:
Strength's is the word to describe this model as it is very strong. Easy to build (a little fidly, but easy), hard to break, stable flight, ability to convert to 3D or low wing. Landings very easy. .
Weaknesses:
Although the model is very strong it does have weak spots which ill go through. The dihedral spar is made from wood and does eventually break when stressed causeing your model to crash, use carbon rods and glue them into the metal dihedral joiner. The undercarriage is very springy which is good for your first landings but a pain once youve learnt due to the prop catching the ground, buy or make a reinforced one with bands. The cowl cracks and breaks with hard landings, however once youve learnt how to land well this doesent become a problem, buy the reinforced cowl and make sure you use washers on the wooden back plate to stop the nuts coming through the cowl.
Overall:
Fantastic first plane, hard to bust and will outlast every other trainer on the market. . . .
