JUST A GREAT BIT OF FUN
Strengths: Will fly off smallest of slopes in very little lift. Is a great introduction to DLG/SAL without breaking bank. The engineering and design is second to none.
Weaknesses: There are only two and these are outweighed by positives! 1) Nose: as other reviewers have stated fit a carbon rod or you will be reaching for Cyano on a regular basis. 2) Set -up: Getting this to axle roll is a challenge and most people struggle to set them up.
Overall: Buy one for a local field. Just don't put your back out! Experiment with C of g and differential and you have a winner!

GREAT
Strengths: Can slope, in almost no wind, put on some ballast and its a good DS plane. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dNax17cRzqo http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D64xTrlz9QM You can take off the wings and bring it with you on hollydays :)
Weaknesses: The nose will breake off, glue in some carbon from the start
Overall: Its a must for sloopers, bring it and u will fly.

GREAT CONCEPT, WELL EXECUTED
Strengths: The manual is very comprehensive and easy to follow. The model is light and quite easy to fly. It is fine both in a discus launch and conventional launch on the slope.
Weaknesses: After not too much use, the nose flew off mine in a discus launch! However, this is probably my fault as the tape for the plastic belly pan had worn a bit, I had cut slots for 2.4 rx aerials in the foam and it had a few nose in landings when i first started trying to catch it! It does also exhibit a slight 'drop' on nose down in transition from left to right bank and vice versa when on the flat field. Not evident on slope flying.
Overall: A great little model to have in your arsenal, you'll only be grounded on the slope or flat field by too much wind where you can switch to another model. Very easy to discus launch and catch so flying time is only really limited by your flight battery if you can keep chucking it!

BRILLIANT
Strengths: Great flier, very detailled instructions, goes together well.
Weaknesses: A bit expensive for a foam kit.
Overall: Looks like Dreamflight have taken a leaf out of Multiplex's book, the kit is very well thought out and the instructions for such a simple kit from a small manufacturer are exemplary, with detailled set=up and flying instructions. The mouldings are generally very good but a little sanding (mentioned in the instructions) is required, but on the whole it goes together very well. Two small servos (6g) a 300 mah 4 cell battery and a small RX and you are away. I found the new Spektrum AR6110E ideal as one ariel extends into the battery bay and a small hole puts the other one slightly out of the top. I've flown it off the slope in very light conditions and because you can do a good fling and get quite a high you can do 1 or 2 passes along the slope to check for lift and still land back at your feet. I've tried it a few times off the flat but not yet managed to hit a thermal but a good fling will see 40 seconds in the air, great fun and good excercise. I've set mine up as per the instructions on low rates with more movement on high rates, but find the low rate settings fine. Its good fun to fly it back so you can catch it. Its not cheap for what it is, but its so well thought out and flies so well that I consider it good value for money.
