Strengths:
Floats around nicely for newbies yet can be put through most aerobatic's too. Lands itself most of the time. . .
Weaknesses:
short nose leg. Wings could be stiffer. Changing between glow and electric is a struggle. .
Overall:
flown mine on an asp 36, now brushless and its great with either. . . .

Strengths:
The Mentor flies so well! Quite easy to build. Very robust, will survive beginners. . .
Weaknesses:
It looks like a trainer, not an EDF jet!. . . .
Overall:
Possibly the best trainer of all? The Mentor is an updated Magister - it looks the same but it's now high performance brushless electric (with no ic option), and it now has tail dragger undercarriage. It flies like a dream. Great as a trainer, a glider tug, or a mild aerobatic plane. .

Strengths:
Superb flying characteristics, docile, intuitive, forgiving and robust. And quite attractive for a trainer, really looks quite the part when airborne. . .
Weaknesses:
Setting the correct angle for the tail plane is not described in the manual at all and turned out to be quite sensitive. I solved the problem entirely by gluing the tail plan in place rather than tightening the nylon screws too much. . .
Overall:
I am very glad I chose this model as a trainer. Really quick and straightforward to put together. Easy to work on, and it flies fantastic. I never bothered with the 1800mAh NiCad, I went straight for a 4300mAh NiMH.

Graham Ashby 123  |  Apr 11, 2007

Strengths:
EPP - it's a superbly versatile material for a trainer and very tough. This model flies beautifully and has totally benign stall characteristics that make it ideal for training. With a . 36 cu.
Weaknesses:
EPP - it looks a bit nasty and tends to hold exhaust goo within the surface of the cellular structure. . . .
Overall:
A fabulous aeroplane, terrific trainer and great intermediate aerobat that's ideal for an i. c. engine. Highly recommended to all, I only wish they'd produce a set of floats for it.
