NICE!
Strengths: Fits on the parcel shelf fully rigged and flies very nicely.
Weaknesses: As already mentioned in other reviews the canopy is quite thin and I'm not sure how durable it will prove.
Overall: A great plane from a good company with excellent customer service. If I was building it again I would definitely put the servos in the alternative position (under a flap behind the wing) as despite using the lighter motor / battery combination I ended up adding a moderate amount of tail weight and it's quite cramped in the "radio bay" with 3 servos battling for space. Also please note this now comes without an undercarriage (just as well really I expect most people left it off). It flies really nicely- although I found the recommended throws tame and increased them significantly for high rates and the CoG at the recommended point was rather rearward for my liking.

GREAT LITTLE PLANE TO HAVE IN THE BOOT READY TO GO!
Strengths: Durable airframe that will take some knocks but can be easy repaired
Weaknesses: Limited instructions for set up & flying. Hardware provided could be better.
Overall: Not one for the beginner mine took three attempts to get the set up right before I could get a reasonable flight, even then it's far from comfortable! But once settled down it does become slot of fun!

GREAT LITTLE PARK FLIER
Strengths: Easy to build, durable, solid flier, trike u/c great and steerable nose wheel works well, take offs are a doddle. Fly it as fast or slow as you like.
Weaknesses: Rubber band to hold on the battery compartment lid, flimsy canopy which is easy to squash when building if not careful.
Overall: This is a great little plane to have ready at home to fly at a moments notice, just pop it in the boot of your car, wing attached, and away you go. I get an easy 8 min flight from the recommended 1300mah Lipo. I would recommend this plane to any intermediate flier.

NICE FLYER
Strengths: Good handling, pretty vice free
Weaknesses: Front hatch held down with rubber bands
Overall: OK, I didn't assemble this but test flew it for a fellow club member, he said it had gone together pretty well, but it is a small model and everything is a tight fit. He's not made the nose leg steerable because of this, but this didn't matter as it steered just fine on rudder alone. He has the front hatch held down with a rubber band around the fuselage, not the tidiest but it seemed to work just fine. First flight was a none evnt just a couple of clicks of trim and it flew very nicely, just like they should. For such a small model it had a very dolid feel in the air and was not twitchy but still very agile. On the strength of this I'm going to look at the H2O.
