GREAT GLIDER,GREAT PRICE
Strengths: Easy to fly,easy to land especially when using Crow.Comes complete and ral easy to put together.
Weaknesses: Wings should have a multiplug fitted as standard as a pain when detaching wings,ESC seems to be a right pain to program and finding the comp prog and connecting lead is proving hard to find so have replaced with another ESC.Motor doesn't seem powerfull enough and glider always seems to pitch up when trying to climb so down elevator needed. CoG seems way out so need to keep playing with it all the time
Overall: Overall its a good glider with a few niggles... Just a shame it doesn't climb as good as my AXN Floater Jet

EXCELLENT VALUE FOR MONEY, GOOD GLIDER.
Strengths: Does what it says on the tin. Good thermal soarer. Everything works out of the box - straight surfaces, stock prop is fine (I wasn't looking for - or expecting - a hotliner), no control or snake binding.
Weaknesses: Very little. OK, you need to buy four short servo extension leads to leave in the Rx for easy connection IMO. Not suitable for strong winds (would you expect it to be?).
Overall: My points below are based on the price of this item. Considering what you get, it's so cheap it's almost for free!

EXCELLENT BUY
Strengths: (PNP version) First assembly including reading the instructions, took 30 minutes. (Had to remove some foam to fit Futaba 7ch 2.4ghz receiver). Test flight so easy.
Weaknesses: Aileron and especially flap servo leads awkward to fit. Instructions suggest use of needle nose pliers. Wing retaining bolts are small - don't drop them in the grass!
Overall: Initial first fit of wings and wing tube very stiff but eases with use. Set up as per instructions a treat to fly. I had the PNP version and used 1600mah 3s Overlander Lipo. A gentle push at less than full throttle gives a gentle glide out. Full throttle sees a 45 degree climb out. Fly it quick or slow - so much fun!

NOT A BAD BUY
Strengths: Full house glider, with the right Tx. Cheap.
Weaknesses: Poor packing can warp control surfaces. Some parts are misrepresented, or a poor fit
Overall: Once the faults were corrected, she flies/glides just fine. A good (cheap) intro to the more expensive side to gliding.

GOOD
Strengths: Turns well. Can be stored in the box the prevent hanger rash!!
Weaknesses: The set up does not m,atch that of the video so don't be surprised when the climb out is worse than the version 1. Prop is not suitable.
Overall: Horizon replaced the prop no questions. Although I chose to use a 11 x 8 ( much better) Waiting for the warmer weather now!!! Would score better if it diod actually fly from the box with out the low watt rating.

A GOOD BUY.
Strengths: Damn good for what it is and what it all costs. Flies very well.
Weaknesses: Tiny fit and finish issues. Fiddly rigging. (But all very easy to sort out)
Overall: Shouldn't disappoint, unless expectations are unreasonably high.
