WHAT A WASTE OF MONEY.
Strengths: Looks very nice, and went together easily.
Weaknesses: 1). Manufacturers recommended CG appears to be wrong, but didnh't get a chance to figure it out. 2). More serious is the wing stall with very little elevator. Couldn't even do a loop without snapping out. Eventually, nosed in, after snapping out of a very conservative Split S. Very disappointing flight performance.
Overall: This model was built with an OS 60 2 cycle engine. It is difficult to tell if the disasterous flight performance of this model was caused by manufacturers recommended CG being in the wrong place, inadequate engine power, or some other problem, but like other reviewers, I found it very disappointing. A great shame. I was looking forward to flying this beautiful looking model.

DISSAPOINTED!
Strengths: Looks Great, Esy to build,
Weaknesses: Recommended C Of G is incorrect on the instructions. Way too far back, I set mine to 135 mm from leading edge and that worked.
Overall: I managed to fly twice before crashing on landing approach.. gutted.. It did not fly as well as I had expected. Throws on elevator really need to be 10mm or less any more and it throws the model into a spin. Will rebuild and try again..but not impressed with handling on initial flights! Maybe with some more adjustments I can get it right but thats a Maybe!!

CRASHED ON FIRST FLIGHT
Strengths: - look - quick built
Weaknesses: - bad instructions : CG, auw and electric setup
Overall: Crashed on first flight, I think CG in instructions is way too much back resulting in an uncontralable plane. Weight is a lot higher than on notice (3,5 kilos before crash and 3,8 kgrs after repairs). Electric setup recommanded with 4 s is really underpowered. 6s is the way to go if you fly electric.
