FANTASTIC!
Strengths: Excellent plans and parts pack.Flies beautifully,low speed handling good with no wing drop at the stall.
Weaknesses: Not a first build project. Balsa selection important to keep the weight down.
Overall: Using a Turnigy 5055 700kv motor, 80Amp ESC, 5000mAh 6 cell battery and a 15x8 APC prop, my model weighs in at 13 and a half pounds. Plenty of power at 3/4 throttle.

NOT FOR THE BEGINNER
Strengths: Strong build, clear plans and good build instructions.
Weaknesses: She's a heavy girl, mine weighs in at 17 lbs. Don't use the ASP 1.20 converted to petrol. Nowhere near enough power. DLE 35 RA now fitted to mine.
Overall: If you have the time, this kit makes an excellent scale model. Very sturdy.
