Strengths:
Docile performance on supplied motor. Quick assembly. Good for begineers, a good platform for sports fliers to test motors possibly use for aerial photography. At l-o-n-g last a mass produced canopy hatch clip (plastic) that seems to work and hold.
Weaknesses:
Quality control - model is supplied with a small outrunner brushless motor and speed controller. The prop-mount is attached by three M2(?) bolts to the motor casing. On my example this was poorly executed i. e.
Overall:
A good idea but spoilt (for me) by lack of attention to quality control (again - a previous Graupner foamie of mine had issues too!). What's happened to the renowned standards of kit manufacture I once associated with Graupner when building 'Topsy' 'Dandy' Amigo' balsa kits of yore(?) Sorry I'm being 'picky'. Overall the model flies quite well. It is docile on the supplied motor.
