VERY ENJOYABLE TO FLY
Strengths: Great looks of shapes and colours mine is yellow
Weaknesses: Poor quality of the covering material I can not keep the wrinkles out of it.The clear top layer is now peeling off the flying surfaces & the plastic surround around the canopy continues to crack. During the build I found the engine thrust line to be out of line 10mm up & to the left, corrected this using a 10mm tapered ply shim behind the engine mount.
Overall: May be I am expecting too much from a entry level aircraft, but other heat shrink covering materials have been avalable for years why not use them.I also changed some of the clevis`s to give the aircraft a longer life.

CAN'T WAIT TILL THEY COME INTO THE COUNTRY AGAIN
Strengths: Excellent flyer. Good for the money.. Would pay more if they would improve covering.
Weaknesses: rudder and elevator can lock in spin watch this when building.. I know a few guys at the club that had them and the U/C is easily bent on a normal reasonable landing. Also most bend the U/C forward as it is close to nose tipping on full throttle and I think they should have made it a bit further fwd for grass take off's.
Overall: Covering weakest part - will last a year or so then will start to come off with fuel. You have to be careful of covering on wings as its easy to damage this when you lift the wings in and out of the car. Great flyer can't wait till they came back into the country again to get another. Pity they would not make it better on the covering side as its a great aircraft. I have had three and recovered one - lost it due to crystal fault sadly.
