Strengths:
Looks good in the air and flys quite well once the C of G is sorted. . . .
Weaknesses:
Needs a 'ton-of-lead' in the (hollow) engine cylinders to get the C of G right. This in turn makes the plane quite heavy for its size so don't expect very slow fly-byes. Watch the very delicate/brittle dummy engine, it's easy to break bits off it. No pilot figures included which are essential to add character to this model.
Overall:
Not bad. Needs to be flown i. e. it's not as others have said a beginners model.

Strengths:
it looks very scale and fly's very well and the hardware included is good quality. . . .
Weaknesses:
the fact that you have to add so much lead to the front to get her to fly right is not great. . . .
Overall:
once you have sorted out the CG and added the lead to stop her shooting skywards it looks really good in the air and but would not recommend it for a beginner as it has to be flown and does not float in for landing. . . .
