Strengths:
fast, agile, vectored thrust very interesting. . . .
Weaknesses:
very soft foam, needs a couple of braces (lolly sticks) glued inside the fuse sides in nose area, canopy catches broke straight away so have to tape the canopy on. needs airholes just aft of the nose either side of canopy for adequote cooling and an additional air hole behind canopy for exit. . .
Overall:
the vectored thrust makes it very manouverable, best used at low speeds for best results,if used at high speed is very fast and control responce is instantaneous, and not quite what you expect, ends up in a completely different direction or attitude to that planned, all good fun though. I have the 3 cell version, and that is enough for such a small white plane. . .

Strengths:
Ease of build. Thought the fantom was an easy build but the squall is easier. Just a very slight miss alignment of the port wing, but easily overcome with a little careful scaple use. .
Weaknesses:
I felt that the nose area just in front of the air intake, may be a weak point. That remains to be seen. . .
Overall:
A great flyer, Mine is the 3 cell and even that is fast and capable. Easy landing, just hold the nose up a little, don't want to prove it can be snapped off. Being quite small, it soon gets to the point where you need to turn it inward, just to stop loosing orientation. .
