Strengths:
Quick & easy assembly - still haven't managed to destroy mine. Much easier to side arm launch than a lot of wings. . .
Weaknesses:
Not keen on elevon connectors - but that might be my ham-fisted assembly skills. . . .
Overall:
All the above - but I am tempted to add a few more watts. . . .

Strengths:
Pretty much everything given it's a rudderless flying wing! Fast with only a small EMax 2812 motor and a 1000mAh battery!! (I bought the core set and used my own power system, but the parts supplied in the full kit are fine, too. . . .
Weaknesses:
Some might not like the bare foam finish, but it's robust and rigid. . . .
Overall:
I don't have the brake set on my ESC, so my prop always "parks" in line with the wing TE, so the glide is really very good, and I have slope soared it many times, especially in locations where the landing zone is fraught (like at the top of an extinct part collapsed volcano crater in a lava/rock field!!). . . .

Strengths:
Very nicely cut wings and components. Parts fit (all 5 of them) is perfect. I used UHU Por throughout with no problems. Motor and esc supplied are perfect (half throttle and release into wind launches are no problem).
Weaknesses:
Instructions are not top notch. Some thought and experience is required. That said, Flying Wings are on the end of the phone and are very helpful. .
Overall:
Simple build, from accurately cut epp components. Easy to fly straight off the board. A real confidence booster. Great fun, and great value for money.
