SWEET FLYER CAPABLE OF A NIPPY PERFORMANCE AS WELL.
Strengths: Good size with a well Moulded airframe. looks scale, not expensive, flap option, stable flier. Lots of internal space. Good airflow thro' fuz.
Weaknesses: Cheap fittings (clevises etc) and wobbly tailwheel. 'Iffy' upper strut mounting. inadequate screw type engine mount. poor build manual - an inexperienced builder will puzzle over some issues and struggle to achieve a correctly set up airframe/power unit especially with the poor linkages.
Overall: I have the ST badged version which is identical to that being introduced in the UK by Jamara. I love it. It is a great flier. It is not aerobat but I like as a bit of relaxa tion between more demanding planes. It handles reasonable wind and gusts well considering its light weight. Can be flown very precisely and would be good as a trainer in the right conditions
