ITS A FUN LITTLE MODEL =]
Strengths: its so easy to fly anyone can fly it, from children to expert modellers, it is also fun to fly for kids being introduced to the sport.
Weaknesses: the lack of an elevator channel can get confusing for an intermediate moddeler ( guilty) but thats fine once youre used to it. also the tiniest puff of wind will have it into the next county!
Overall: its a great peice of engineering and the materials mean that it really wont break even when literally thrown full pelt into the ground. you really can get alot of fun out of something so simple.

GREAT TOY
Strengths: Works straight from the box
Weaknesses: Very limited control
Overall: I have used these little aircraft extensively during a science festival, and the crowds love them. Tune them up a bit and they fly quite well. Spend some time and you will be able to fly them straight back into your hand. But I don't think it is as exciting as a bigger RC model.

GREAT, CHEAP FUN
Strengths: Very difficult to break, you can fly it into walls and it will just bounce off, trust me, I have done. Its cheap.
Weaknesses: Need to use power to turn and slightly slow to respond at times as said in an earlier review.
Overall: This really is a brilliant little toy, as long as theres no wind or you're indoors then this can offer a lot of fun for little cost.

BUY ONE!
Strengths: Instant Indoor Flight, Cheap, Very Robust
Weaknesses: TX control method is non-standard and potentially will "teach" people to fly wrongly - no power = no turning!
Overall: Deserves to succeed, highly recommended, but best (esp for kids) modded with two diodes added to TX cct to give steering without throttle.

GREAT FUN
Strengths: cheap yet fun and durable plane - parctially indistructable
Weaknesses: it's control responses are slow and struggles in windy conditions
Overall: cracking plane that is cheap and affordable for all and gives 100% satisfaction in return. great fun and good source for indoor light weight radio control :-)

SIMPLE AND GREAT FUN
Strengths: cheap cheap cheap!!! did i mention it was cheap? but incredibly good fun and virtually indestructable
Weaknesses: needs to be flown in virtually windless conditions. control response times are slow at times.
Overall: i'm just starting out in the world of rc so i'm buying a few of these complete in a box kits.my first purchase was a firebird. although i got the hag of it eventually, it cost me 3-4 wings first and scared the!*!?? out of me the first time it flew.with a 1 metre wing span its quiet scary! this little thing is really easy to fly and good fun. buy one and stick it in the boot for lunchtime flights!!!
