Strengths:
Looks great and has very good flight performance. Low speed flight performance good too, so you do not need to be an expert pilot. . .
Weaknesses:
Really awful hardware, in fact the worst of any kit I have built. Nuts and bolts are soft. Some bolts were headless. Nose wheel thread instantly stripped.
Overall:
Very nice easy plane to fly with precise handling and good looks. Replace all hardware when building and reinforce the inside with epoxy, then you will have a nice durable model. . .

Strengths:
Aerobatic, easy to fly and handles winds well. Strong and predictable. . .
Weaknesses:
Weak, floppy nose leg. Clevises are useless and dangerous - replaced with metal items. No spinner included. .
Overall:
Good all-round flyer, which is ideal quick assembly, both at the workshop and field. Takes a wide range of engines. . .

Tim Reeves  |  Oct 16, 2012

Strengths:
Instructions are clear. . . .
Weaknesses:
No spinner with the kit. Clevises are poor quality plastic and pull off the rods, so had to fit my own. The main under carriage wire is very thin. .
Overall:
Check the fuselage as the glue is almost non existant. and the covering is not stuck down well, so had to spend time sorting this out. The fuel tank does not fit the way it is supposed to, unless you break out some of the former just behind the firewall. Be very careful when fixing the elevators, as the wire joining them can be easily pushed through the balsa, so re enforcement is needed.
