Strengths:
Looks and performance. . . .
Weaknesses:
Not keen on the "sealed" nature of the motor/servo compartment. . . .
Overall:
Maidened in rather gusty conditions but it coped well and I found it both stable and responsive. Gary's observations echo my experience, including the missing hinge. I had to extend the servo mounting hole towards the edge to clear the motor tube but this was made worse by the adapter I had to make to fit my non standard £5 motor from Giant Cod (instead of the £35 E-flite recommended one). My servos are fitted in line with the tube as they must be shorter than the E-flite ones.

Strengths:
Good quality parts, clear illustrated instructions. Benign flight handling and a picture in the air. . .
Weaknesses:
Some tricky construction steps requiring patience, lower rudder hinge missing (common to many of these kits). Optional motor mount tube clashes with the servos if used. No pilot figure included. .
Overall:
Slightly tricky to assemble but stable and easy to fly on just three channels. Must be flown with the matching SE. 5 at all times!. .
