Vecchio Austriaco  |  May 19, 2012

Strengths:
Stronger than the usual ARTF, may be a little heavier which is not a problem if you are not into 3D. Excellent build quality. Flies like a much bigger plane. .
Weaknesses:
the round wire undercarriage. I replaced it with an aluminium alloy one (ex Sebby Sukhoi, slightly shortened. . .
Overall:
A very good looking plane, easy to build. In my model the COG is spot on - using a Hacker A30 12L with 3 cell 2500mAh Lipos. Unfortunately I killed 2 of these models (pilots error of course) but I loved it so much that no 3 is in my shed, waiting to be assembled. .

Strengths:
2 piece wing for easy transport and reduces damage. Nice looking and a good flier. . .
Weaknesses:
Very tail heavy, undercarriage very bendy and fuselage not very strong. . . .
Overall:
Why design a plane to be so light but then have to add a load of lead in the nose. All in all though good value. . .

Strengths:
Very aerobatic, and will fly slowly, without stalling. Quite strong for a ep model and even at this size the wings detach for transport. . .
Weaknesses:
Would have been tail-heavy if brushless motor fitted. Still needed an oz or two of lead even with a heavier ic engine. . .
Overall:
Good value and flying characteristics of an larger airframe. Looks good and quality covering. . .

Strengths:
Still incredible value. They have strengthened the u/c but boxed it in so it harder to add extra strength. . .
Weaknesses:
Got this to replace my shredded Seagull EP Extra 300, but it is heavier, less-well thought out and harder to modfy to improve. Firewall is too far back so lead is needed to balance it. Colour scheme harder to see against cloud. .
Overall:
After the Extra 300, I'm finding this hard to love as much. But still easy and fun to fly. . .
