Strengths:
Great colour scheme, cheap to buy and make my heart rate rise when flying! Build is ok - just the fittings that could be a lot better. . . .
Weaknesses:
Poor quality fittings, U/C, flimsy cowl, no wash out. . . .
Overall:
Yes it has its problems this ARTF is an 'Almost Ready to Fettle' kit but at the moment it can be bought very cheaply. Experienced assemblers or builders can improve this a/c with little effort. In the air - with the right power set-up - it is fast and exciting behaving more like a fast warbird. I never get tired of seeing it in its element.

Strengths:
Appearance. . . .
Weaknesses:
Shabbily thin plastic cowl Wash-in on wings Insubstantial undercarriage. . . .
Overall:
I have always been very lucky to get this aircraft back on the ground intact. It has incipient tip stall. The long tapering wings have wash-in instead of comforting washout. Any manoeuvre near to the ground is like walking on egg shell.

Strengths:
Tubes installed in wings for aileron servo extension leads to push through. All hardware supplied. Comes with pilot/cockpit pre-fitted. Can fly on budget radio gear should you want to.
Weaknesses:
Bad warps in aileron/rudder but i seem to have the only kit with this problem to date. Control horns bit shabby. . .
Overall:
For the money you pay you get a reasonably built 80" span kit. But when completed looks stunning and has the flying characteristics to match the looks. Buy one, you will love it!!. .
