Strengths:
Vice free handling,finds lift in light conditions. Robust fuselage. . .
Weaknesses:
Motor mount need beefing up if running as a powered glider. Wing mounts can tear out in a hard landing. Easy to convert to banded on wing. .
Overall:
A great glider for the novice and experianced pilot. I run mine as a full house glider with crow,camber,reflex and snap flaps. . .

Strengths:
easy to fly, with no quirks. Glides forever. Can be quite fast. Catches thermals well.
Weaknesses:
Needs flap servos. Foam hinges need checking for cracks after a while. . .
Overall:
Great performance for the price. As mentioned really need flaps for best landings. I've found a 3s 1800 gives best performance to weight. Did I mention great value?.

Strengths:
Quick and easy build. Room for battery upto 2200ish size, pre formed flaps. Substantial accessories pack including glider only nosecone. Servos pre fitted for Elevator, Rudder and Ailerons.
Weaknesses:
Decals, as always a pain to put on. Not pre fitted with servos on flaps. . .
Overall:
For the cost, this glider is a great model. Goes together perfectly. Do use the flaps as landings can be long and fast otherwise! Absolute value for money!. .
