Strengths:
Well built, easy to assemble and small enough not to need dissambly for stransport if you own a pickup or medium car. Docile flying and easy landing, even deadstick. Can be completed at 2. 7 kg if using only one elevator servo.
Weaknesses:
Bendy undercarrige, looks splayed when sitting on ground. Fuel tank feed pipe very short inside and needed extra weight added to enable clunk to reach full up and down, to avoid engine stopping when inverted with 1/3 tank remaining. The use of two servos for elevator on such a small model, a factory made joint rod for elevator is recomended instead of the extra weight of a second servo. Big rudder can cause problems at low speed so care must be taken.
Overall:
Overall excelent 1st biplane and with a . 46 to . 56 glow and 12x4 prop will give lots of fun. Very smooth crisp flying and relative docile in the landing.
