Strengths:
Quick build, smooth flying slope soarer. . . .
Weaknesses:
Push rod and horn alignment. Electric conversion too expensive. . .
Overall:
It's a clever, elegant, moustache-shaped flying wing that glides very smoothly. The electric power conversion kit was too pricey for me and unnecessary for the local slopes. All the plastic components are crisply moulded and fit together well. Zacki super-glue cemented it all together nicely.

Strengths:
High quality moulded parts, innovative design allows quick change from power to glider, removable fins and folding fuselage reduces complete aircraft to backpack size. . . .
Weaknesses:
Wing root to centre section join is tricky, I needed another pair of hands to get everything lined up before the cyano cooked off. Had to purchase power pod components separately. . .
Overall:
Not a beginners build, this is a state of the art example of a fully moulded flying wing. I thought most nodellers would opt for the power version which could have been offered as a base kit. . .
