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.

GREAT SPORT LOW-WINGER
Strengths: One of the few ARTF trike u/c low wingers available. Flight performance very good - All basic sports flier manoeuvres easily achieved. It Looks neat too!
Weaknesses: The awful printed covering - Just looking at it puts a hole in it! Trim covering comes away very easily too. Canopy is very thin, don't try holding/steadying the model by it. Usual cheap/down to a price rather than up to a quality clevis, horns, wheels. Pilot figure too small and poorly painted.
Overall: Despite the niggles, a great sports hack, low-winger. Fly it on 5 cell LiPo for best performance and flight duration. Needs a little bit of nose weight even with a 'beefy' 40-46 size brushless motor.

QUICK QUALITY AEROBATICS
Strengths: Typical well thought out Multiplex (Elapor) foamy aerobatic model.
Weaknesses: Why Multiplex still persist with using foam spinners which rarely run true and balanced. U/C mounting??? Time will tell whether this and the small spats can withstand the rigours of 'sports/club' field flying. Expensive - Vinyl Decal decal sheet is extra!
Overall: Always wanted a MPX 'Acromaster'. As is common with most foam models, the production run ceased and the 1st edition disappeared from the model shop shelves. Now re-released (with improvements they say?), the latest version comes almost ready to fly. Just add your Rx, apply decals or paint decorate to your preferences. So far, impressions are favourable. Will update after more air-time under the 'Acromaster' wings!
