Strengths:
Solid and robust, lots of power, easy to see from altitude. . . .
Weaknesses:
Flap servos installed incorrectly, wings needed surgery to fix in the wing seat correctly, wing spar bends to easily and ailerons and flaps need to be on separate channels - but all easily corrected. . . .
Overall:
Great glider, lots of presence in the air. Highly recommended. . .

Strengths:
Well built and tough glider. Mine has survived over a year of use. Looks great and flies like a dream, plenty of power from the motor and prop. .
Weaknesses:
Tailplane screws are digging into the foam, easily fixed with a washer. . . .
Overall:
Well worth the money. Very well built and flies beautifully. . .

Strengths:
easy to set up not a lot to do weather PNP or RTF. . . .
Weaknesses:
only being made of POE o and i had a bad Y lead. may be to big for some to fit in to the car. . .
Overall:
this was my first aircraft for well over 10 year's and it fly's like a dream nice and stable easy to assemble. Get the flaps as it floats for ever. ;-) take out the weights in the wing tips she rolls then with ease :). .

Strengths:
Great climbout and all round flight performance looks great in the air with a soild feel to the controls. Epo seems quite tough. we have around 12 in our club. .
Weaknesses:
factory wiring is a bit fragile, bit of a bind to hook up wiring where wings join. decals arent great but can be removed for a more scale look (see below) needs plenty of "nose down" when the power is applied. . .
Overall:
Love the glider to bits, had flights of over 1hr on a 3000mah lipo. Decals come off "waxing" style with parcel tape. Thermals nicely in nice weather. bought mine without radio and fly with futaba 2.
