A CRACKING LOW WINGER
Strengths: easy to assemble, goes exactly where you put it in the air. lands itself. good colours for orientation. no flying vices.
Weaknesses: covering fades with fuel/time. thats about it
Overall: great first low winger or regular club hack which experienced flyers can ring out ! prices have crept up from 50 a few yrs ago to just under 70 but still a bargain

EXCELLENT LOW WINGER
Strengths: Easy build, strong, good undercarriage.
Weaknesses: This is my second one! So I guess not.
Overall: Flying on an OS46, it is great. I normally fly gliders and this was my first glow powered model. Easy to fly and land. Will do most gentle aeros, and will take seriously hard landings. A lot of people suggest altering the undercarriage to a tail dragger format. I wouldn't its really good as a tricycle layout and is very strong. Very good model, low cost, I don't think you'll get another model in the same class for the same price!

SUPERB VALUE
Strengths: Will take a few knocks, great for novice pilots, lands as if on rails, great value for money.
Weaknesses: Covering splits easily. Needs fuel proofing in tank and bulkhead areas.
Overall: This is a great little hack, it fly's very well and would i recommend it as a first low winger. Had mine 3 years, although a little rough round the edges i love it.

GREAT FUN
Strengths: cheap, flies on rails, u/c tough as old boots, just goes on for ever, and easy to fly, looks different.
Weaknesses: Needs glue joints reinforcing with thin CA, and structure reinforcing behind the wing T/E in the fuse as it snaps in half here
Overall: Excellant first low winger, flies like on rails, ideal for rough field, lasts for ever though the colour fades from the covering, but just recover in tex.
