GREAT LITTLE PLANE. BARGAIN PRICE!
Strengths: Price (Brushless Outrunner and Lipo) Scale Looks
Weaknesses: Motor bracket very brittle. Cheap transmitter and charger (does the job though).
Overall: A great little plane from Art-Tech. Can be had for as little as a hundred pounds from online retailers. Assembly is a breeze but check servo setup from factory as ailerons were reversed on transmitter. Handsome aircraft for the money with plenty of power. Can do aerobatics/rolls/stall turns etc. The motor mount however is very brittle and will not take even a mild knock without breaking (so no failed hand launches allowed!). However, spare parts are cheaply available so no problems there. The transmitter does the job but is very basic as expected at the price and as others have said here, the Lipo charger hardly looks safe. A cheap alternative is an Esky balance charger like the ones I use for my Belt CP. But ideally a decent charger should be used. Overall though a pleasing model. I would recommend it to anyone with some basic flight experience behind them looking to move up to a cheap low wing warbird.

GREAT MODEL, SHAME ABOUT THE TRANSMITTER AND CHARGER..
Strengths: Looks good. Flies well although even better on a two-blade prop - ditch the four blader included in the box.
Weaknesses: Poor transmitter included - cheap and horrible. The Li-Po charger included is frankly dangerous!
Overall: Lovely flyer on calm days with a two blade-prop and your own transmitter.
