GOOD ENTRY INTO CHEAP 3D
Strengths: Nice looking outline, wing fixing, colourful decals, powerful motor.
Weaknesses: U/C, what a waste of time. Even a soft landing will see it rip away. After strengthening with ply plates it no longer rips away, but then it begins to bend and twist the thin U/C legs. I decided to fit a WOT4 Foam-E U/C, problem totally solved! Elevator servo decided to quit whilst prop hanging, cheap 9g one to replace easily enough. Swap the cheap prop for an APC one for more power.
Overall: A good beginning into 3D, but the weight isn't quite enough, and it can be difficult to hold a good prop hang. On the other hand it knife edges all day long, dead straight, and you'll soon be showing off your new skills!

EXCELLENT INTRO MODEL FOR 3D
Strengths: Strong, plenty of power and very manovurable
Weaknesses: Lost count of the amount of times the under carriage broke off on landing but finally solved the problem and its now fine
Overall: A very stable but highly aerobatic model that can perform most 3D patterns with ease. The undercarriage is an issue with all the early marks os a better fixing. The power is excellent, mine flys straight up vertical from takeoff, and it withstands knocks very well apart from the above mentioned :)

NICE LOOKING, BUT........
Strengths: The wing fixing is novel and very good
Weaknesses: Speed controller burnt out within 10 minutes of first flight. Access to speed controller and motor can only be achieved by cutting off the cowl and cutting the electric wires. Undercarriage fixing very flimsy
Overall: A nice design spoiled by the detail. Needs a design review.
