Strengths:
Top quality foam mouldings, fit of parts is perfect, scale looks and excellent flight envelope. . . .
Weaknesses:
Unimaginative, bland decals. I manufactured my own scale-like markings. . .
Overall:
Built and set up as per instructions guarantees a very satisfying assembly process and flight performance. It's relaxing to fly with no bad habits, but if needs be can be nicely aerobatic too. Elegant looks combined with excellent handling qualities make ownership of this glider a real pleasure. .

Strengths:
Good flier, easy to control, nice looking. . . .
Weaknesses:
Can be a fiddle to attach wings due to alignment of wing rods. . . .
Overall:
Enjoyable to fly, wings knock off easily on rough landing, without damage. Will slope soar well on suitable hill site. . .

Capt Kremen  |  Feb 18, 2013

Strengths:
Scale appearance in a sports model glider. Good flight performance. Well engineered to Multiplex (German) thoroughness and standards. .
Weaknesses:
The 'Solius' sees MPX employ some new assembly features. The spars are ready fitted, overlapping through the fuselage then secured with a central 'pin'. How durable and practical this will prove, time will tell. Also, (at the root), the aileron servo leads feature sockets to match the wing servo plugs.
Overall:
Despite my seemingly critical 'niggles', I do like my new 'Solius'. It seems to combine the qualities of scale glider appearance with best model glider flight performance i. e. no obvious tendancy to tip stall as many a graceful scale model glider can exhibit.
