ECONOMY BUT WELL MADE
Strengths: Build seems very good, range is terrific, feels good in hand.
Weaknesses: No Tx mixing at all so no elevons etc without adding an on-board mixer. The swithc cover is weak and poorly thought out, but then most others leave them open to elements anyway!
Overall: For a simple no frills unit, it's remarkable well made and nice to use, the issue is, does it do what you need with no model memory, dual rates, EPA or mixing? Takes you back to the 70's but not really a bad thing, just we have got lazy-higher expectetions now!! If it does what you want, buy now, it's a good 'un!
