BRILLIANT FLYER
Strengths: Very stable plane to fly. I have an OS 55AX on mine and it does the job well. Good ground handling too.
Weaknesses: None that I could see. The covering on mine is the new purple toughlon and I have no issues with it.
Overall: Overall a great flying plane that looks both great in the air and on the ground.

FANTASTIC!
Strengths: Excellent plans and parts pack.Flies beautifully,low speed handling good with no wing drop at the stall.
Weaknesses: Not a first build project. Balsa selection important to keep the weight down.
Overall: Using a Turnigy 5055 700kv motor, 80Amp ESC, 5000mAh 6 cell battery and a 15x8 APC prop, my model weighs in at 13 and a half pounds. Plenty of power at 3/4 throttle.
