BEAUTIFUL AIRCRAFT, BUT MIND THE CG
Strengths: A beautiful and very capable sport aerobatic aircraft.
Weaknesses: With Savox SH-0255MG servos for elevator and rudder, getting the correct C of G requires a 5000 mAh 3S battery up against the firewall, and 35g weight in the nose. Metal landing gear bends on anything but perfect landings (probably exacerbated by the additional weight).
Overall: Overall a lovely plane, but slightly spoiled by the C of G and landing gear issues. I suggest converting to pull-pull rudder, and leaving the landing gear fairings off so you can bend the gear straight when necessary.

NICE LOOKING PLANE
Strengths: Pretty strongly built. Earlier comments about control rods and elevator flutter have been addressed by using 'snakes'.
Weaknesses: The undercarriage could be a little more scale looking at the now not inconsiderable price. My first one arrived via carrier and had been damaged in transit so maybe better packaging could be used
Overall: I built mine using a 4250 500kV motor, 6S 3000 LiPo and 70A esc. 730w with a 12x8 prop and it goes like stink - mostly flying at half throttle. Weighs about 6.5 lbs, so a bit over the 'book' weight but can still be slowed down for landing so no problem,
