Strengths:
Looks good and flies really well. . . .
Weaknesses:
Even a soft landing proved to much for the U/c if you come in anything more than faster than just above stall speed. I had to add an extra brace to the u/c which meant some cutting into the wing and adding some extra ply to the wing rib. I still haven't fitted the spats as I'm trying to figure a way of doing it and still being able to remove them easily if I need to do any u/c repairs which I think will be inevitable. .
Overall:
This model could be a real winner, but it is really badly let down by the poor u/c set up. Landing on the average club's grass patch will always be challenging with the current design. If I'd know this before purchase I would have left my wallet in my pocket. .
