SUPERB ALL-ROUNDER
Strengths: Strongly built: will take any aerobatics you through at it
Weaknesses: The set up of servo and control horns recommended in the manual gives a very poor mechanical advantage. Set the pushrods up with shorter radius on servos and longer on the control horns - otherwise the elevators may "mush" at speed.
Overall: Excellent value for money, because this plane lasts and lasts.

GREAT LOOKING AND QUALITY CONSTRCUTION
Strengths: Looks and overall design except for u/c attachment. Instructions are fine &b easy to follow. Build quality is excellent
Weaknesses: U/c attachment: I refuse to use steel bolts so replaced with nylon but these were too weak in the equivalent gauge. Removed T nuts and replaced with inserts to take 5mm nylon bolts - much better! Personally prefer more aileron movement than suggested in the instructions
Overall: Great looking with easy handling. Draws very favourable comments from club mates. Flies on rails and is a great Sunday hack....

Which part of building a new traditional balsa aeroplane do you enjoy the most?

 All of it!
 None of it. I'd rather someone else did it!
