Andy Dockerill  |  Aug 26, 2010

Strengths:
Very well made mouldings that fit together well. Looks good when complete and easy to fly with aileron experience . Flys well under power or with prop removed on the slope or thermaling . .
Weaknesses:
Battery position is deep inside fus but this is easily sorted by constructing a plastic tray to fit battery to and slide this down fuse. . . .
Overall:
Good value for money . Three planes in one!. . .

Strengths:
Flies well for long periods on very low throttle. Thermals well if lift is about. . .
Weaknesses:
Mpx's crazy method for connecting wing servos, guaranteed to fail. Useless canopy catches. . .
Overall:
A great flyer, will handle quite strong winds. Always in the car when visiting flying field. . .

Strengths:
It's strong - but flies just so well. After the Easy * its a bit of a handful with ailerons and the increased size but - with careful rates selection it is quickly tamed - and worth the effort. I have had 2 now (first one 'flew away')and they survived lots of misuse. .
Weaknesses:
Battery position is tricky as it is right down the wing 'tunnel'. Best to Velcro and leave in once CofG is correct. Otherwise none. .

Strengths:
Easy to assemble using ZACKI ca glue. Excellent flier. . .
Weaknesses:
Access to battery could be better. Not much space for ESC, needed to secure ESC with cable ties to additional wooden crossmember so it clears servos. Usual MPX rubbish hatch catches, better to use magnets. .
Overall:
Used MPX 12x6 folding prop (For Easy Glider tuning and Cularis)with HiModel BL2815-9 motor ex BRC Hobbies, 2s lipo, 33amp ESC. Climbs steeply and aerobatic on this setup with plenty of climbs to gliding height. . .

Strengths:
Can be finished as a glider or electric. Goes together well and flies really well. . .
Weaknesses:
Leads on wing servos I used were a bit short and didn't reach the recess in the wing where the extension lead should plug in, so I had to cut another recess. Wing fit is really snug now, but not sure how long that will last. Nose cone for glider version is from foam and glues on, a plastic one which could be removable would enable plane to be converted from glider to electric and back again fairly quickly. .
Overall:
Built mine as a glider for my son and me to fly when it's not windy enough for my wildthing and we don't want to risk the mouldie or large scale glider. . . .
