Strengths:
Very well built, more seagull than usual flimsy Eflite. Rock solid handling and aerobatic capability. . .
Weaknesses:
None found. Problems getting Servos, but fitted HITEC standards. . .
Overall:
Excellent plane for anyone moving up from a trainer. Similar to Pulse XT. Bought as a electric hack for a break from larger 4S and petrol; fills the gap nicely. .

Strengths:
A strong plane. I haven't found anything wrong with it. Easy access to battery compartment. .
Weaknesses:
Trim needs tacking down but really a minor point. That was after 60 flights. . .
Overall:
This is a lovely plane and would make a great follow- on to a high wing trainer. . . .

Strengths:
A good package for the money, solid and straightforward to build. Foam core wing is tough. Easy to trim and fly, and will handle a bit of wind. Good manual too.
Weaknesses:
Specified servos not available now, and requires minor mods to fit alternatives. . . .
Overall:
Has taken me a step up from small foam RTFs and converted FF slow flyers. It's a sturdy and very useable low winger for the "improver" and is a real confidence builder. . .

Strengths:
Quick to get in the air. Looks (a bit) like my ol' Gangster, flies almost as well but nostalgic memories always fly better!. . .
Weaknesses:
Roll rate on strip ailerons is a bit tame. No Pilot figure included - Apart from drones how can any plane fly without one!. . .
Overall:
Fair value for a quick to air sport flier model. I was seeking the long awaited 'Gangster ARF' (N/A at time of purchase) so settled for this not too disimilar lookalike. I use the '25' size motor which is adequate if not overpowering. The battery position needs careful attention/adjustment to ensure a correct C of G.
