BEST LOOKING TRAINER I'VE EVER HAD .
Strengths: DEAD EASY TO BUILD .RUGGED .TAKES PRANGS REALLY WELL .ALTERING THE RATES TAKES IT FROM A GOOD TRAINER TO A VERY AEROBATIC MODEL .
Weaknesses: WEAK FRONT ENGINE COWL AND STEERABLE NOSE WHEEL ASSY .LATER CNC MAKES SOME TRIMMING NECESSARY .
Overall: FANTASTIC .BUILD IT WITH FLAPS AND DO AWAY WITH THE STEERABLE NOSE WHEEL AND YOU CAN ALWAYS RELY ON IT TO PERFORM PARTICULARLY FOR THE FIRST FLIGHT IN THE NEW SEASON .

FANTASTIC
Strengths: Easy to build(my first ever) almost like a big jigsaw! Flies buitifully on my .46 equivalent leccy setup.
Weaknesses: The wood size doesn't match the plan. luckily it all fits together beautifully so it isn't actually too much of a problem.
Overall: I love this plane!

NICE FLYER, BEST WITH A 46
Strengths: Really strong wing and fuselage
Weaknesses: Nosewheel bracket (u/c leg becomes loose),SLEC plan is wrong size - you cannot build the wing over it! Cowl is too thin
Overall: A beginner would need help building it. Not all details are shown as separate steps
