Strengths:
Strongly built: will take any aerobatics you through at it. . . .
Weaknesses:
The set up of servo and control horns recommended in the manual gives a very poor mechanical advantage. Set the pushrods up with shorter radius on servos and longer on the control horns - otherwise the elevators may "mush" at speed. . .
Overall:
Excellent value for money, because this plane lasts and lasts. . . .

Strengths:
Looks and overall design except for u/c attachment. Instructions are fine &b easy to follow. Build quality is excellent. .
Weaknesses:
U/c attachment: I refuse to use steel bolts so replaced with nylon but these were too weak in the equivalent gauge. Removed T nuts and replaced with inserts to take 5mm nylon bolts - much better! Personally prefer more aileron movement than suggested in the instructions. . .
Overall:
Great looking with easy handling. Draws very favourable comments from club mates. Flies on rails and is a great Sunday hack. .
