ANOTHER GOOD-UN'.
Strengths: Quick & easy assembly - still haven't managed to destroy mine. Much easier to side arm launch than a lot of wings.
Weaknesses: Not keen on elevon connectors - but that might be my ham-fisted assembly skills.
Overall: All the above - but I am tempted to add a few more watts.

EXCELLENT, VERSATILE
Strengths: Pretty much everything given it's a rudderless flying wing! Fast with only a small EMax 2812 motor and a 1000mAh battery!! (I bought the core set and used my own power system, but the parts supplied in the full kit are fine, too.
Weaknesses: Some might not like the bare foam finish, but it's robust and rigid.
Overall: I don't have the brake set on my ESC, so my prop always "parks" in line with the wing TE, so the glide is really very good, and I have slope soared it many times, especially in locations where the landing zone is fraught (like at the top of an extinct part collapsed volcano crater in a lava/rock field!!)

NEAR INSTANT GRATIFICATION
Strengths: Very nicely cut wings and components. Parts fit (all 5 of them) is perfect. I used UHU Por throughout with no problems. Motor and esc supplied are perfect (half throttle and release into wind launches are no problem). Flying is a real blast, but it also slows down nicely for landing maintaining control authority all the way down. Glides really well too.
Weaknesses: Instructions are not top notch. Some thought and experience is required. That said, Flying Wings are on the end of the phone and are very helpful.
Overall: Simple build, from accurately cut epp components. Easy to fly straight off the board. A real confidence booster. Great fun, and great value for money.
