A GREAT FLIER
Strengths: Well built ARTF. Great flying performance.
Weaknesses: Wheels too small and hard. Replace with larger / softer ones.
Overall: It's the plane I always take to the field. Several Acro Wots in our club.

GREAT LOOKS AND VERY CAPABLE MODEL
Strengths: Construction is relatively easy wood and foam veneer construction with relatively fast construction time if you have built one or two models before.
Weaknesses: After some experience and if you have a roughish grass field I beefed up the mounting for my U/C to prevent damage to the fuselage if the U/C was ripped off. Aside from that the model is pretty good.
Overall: This is a great general sport hack model which has been a massive workhorse for me. It does aerobatics pretty well, looks great in the sky, and with beefing up of tow points makes a great glider tug and has been known to tow three Ridge Runts behind it. Would I buy another? - Yes I would.

BRILLIANT, FANTASTIC
Strengths: fast or slow flying a dream, capable of all aerobatics at low and high speeds, flies well even when blowing a gale, rugged tough, fun machine
Weaknesses: none
Overall: As much fun as the Wot 4, you will have to make the chice which one to fly. Flies superb even in a gale so ideal club flying machine, easy build, radio gear fitment a bit tight, Powered by OS 55ax, gives superb power low speed handling a dream.

VERY NICE, WITH CHARACTER
Strengths: Very rewarding to fly, particularly with a 4-stroke. Very good low-speed manners.
Weaknesses: Perhaps a bit pricey compared to some ARTFs. Composite u/c has pin-holes, suggest leaving it un-painted.
Overall: Took about 11 weeks to build (with a box-top colour scheme in film), compared to 4-5 weeks for an ARTF. Instructions OK with new addendum sheet. Unlimited vertical with a Laser 70, OS 70 FS or similar might be nearly as good. Benefits from a bit of rudder-elevator mixing for clean stall-turns.
