Strengths:
Small enough to keep ready to just pick up & go. Big enough to cope with the weather. . .
Weaknesses:
Multiplex motor is set expensive. Prop adapter / spinner not included in the kit. . .
Overall:
The usual Multiplex quality, but dont let it slow down to much, as it will stop flying!. . . .

Strengths:
Compact, easily transportable. Quite agile, not a beginners model. . .
Weaknesses:
Roll Rate - bit barrelly, Colour Scheme/Decals - This is a small model which quickly gets to eyestraining limits if not watched. A bold colourscheme to orientate is recommended. Dissapointing patch/decal coverings over fuselage servo mounting area and on upper surface over ailerons. Expensive for what it is.
Overall:
As all the magazines have said 'another winner from Multiplex' BUT only one review gave good insight into the careful planning of radio & motor installation needed. Access for all but the thinnest fingers 'n thumbs, once assembled, is very tight. I secured the receiver (2. 4 Spektrum) with Velcro and attached extension fly leads to the aileron servo inputs so as to make field assembly easier.
