Strengths:
Goes together well, everything fits and the flight performance is brilliant. Flew straight off the ground with no trim adjustments and sedate, safe, but also responsive. Two piece wing makes transport much easier. .
Weaknesses:
Two main niggles: The supplied 3mm clevis are dire,loose and poor quality. Not as bad as the ones with the Wot4 Extreme, but no good. Other thing, personal preference, I did away with the forked elevator pushrod and used two elevator servos in the tail. Much better and safer.
Overall:
Ideal introduction to large models, and can take a 120 to a 30cc upwards petrol, so power it how you want. . . .

Strengths:
Well built, easy assembly and flies a treat. Even the supplied accessories are good quality (mostly) and it includes a nice polished ali spinner! The cowl is a little more sturdy than the average budget ARTF with a nice deep paint finish. . .
Weaknesses:
I replaced the 3mm clevises with better quality units and one end of the carbon fibre wing joiner was a very tight fit in the socket, needing some wet'n'dry to ease the fit. The pre-cut tailplane slot was too loose for the suggested CA glue and needed something gap-filling - PVA, epoxy or similar. . .
Overall:
Good value for money going together to make a very nice larger sports aerobat. It's definitely a keeper!. . .
