Weaknesses: Springy undercarriage.

EXCELLENT LEARNER PLANE
Strengths: strong plane, flies very well, landing gear massive will take off and land practically anywhere.
Weaknesses: motor mount, i chopped the front off mine and glued a fibre glass sheet (cut to the shape of the front) then screwed the motor directly to this I have photos of the mod if anyone wants them, no vibration at all.
Overall: Once the motor mount was sorted, the plane flew perfectly, loads of power, cross between a plane and a glider, use to get mine up to 300 ft plus and float around, flaps down i could land it vertically !!!!! could do some acrobatics, but hi G manoeuvres would bend the wings to much, wing struts would over come this. Overall an excellent plane.

GOOD FUN..............
Strengths: THE BIG WHEELS ARE HANDY FOR GRASS,GRAVEL,AND MANY OTHER SURFACES AND DO NOT HAMPER WITH ITS FLYING ABILITY AT ALL.PUT A LARGE E-MAX MOTOR IN IT AND WITH THE FLAPS ON TWO STAGES,ITS JUST A LAUGH WIND OR NO WIND,SLOW OR FAST.TWO PART WING IS HANDY IDEA.
Weaknesses: RUDDER TAIL WHEEL SET-UP A BIT WEAK.
Overall: ITS A NICE MODEL AND APART FROM THE STEERABLE TAIL-WHEEL SET UP.IT WILL BRING A SMILE OR TWO.

ANOTHER GREAT FROM MULTIPLEX
Strengths: Beautifully engineered kit. Takes off (without flaps) ROG in less that 1 metre and is an easy but fun fly.
Weaknesses: Tail wheel assembly and fitting is fiddly and not up to the quality of the rest of the kit. I think the wing halves are best glued together as repeated disassembly will weaken the join. I also swapped the (IMO) silly big wheels for more sensible 70mm foam ones. The flap servo recesses can cause issues (see forum) but in my view the flaps are totally unnecessary either for take-off or landing. I think Multiplex were just trying to convince us that this is more than just the EasyCub with ailerons (which is exactly what it is).
Overall: More assembly work than many of the ARTFs these days. I wanted a bigger MiniMag that could reliably ROG off playing field grass and this is it. Handles wind quite well.
