A DIFFERENT CUB
Strengths: Great scale look and features. Flaps and lights. Colour scheme is more unique,not yellow.
Weaknesses: Tail is weak and full flap is too much, so reduced to half. Also the AS3X system is too impeding for this model type and actually ruins some aspects. However, this can be adjusted with a USB programmer.
Overall: Apart from the over-sensitive AS3X system trying too hard, looks good and a good size.

GREAT FULL HOUSE FLYER
Strengths: Easy flyer,well equipped and a "looker".As a bonus it has flaps (on gear channel) and lights - what's not to like?
Weaknesses: prop adaptor and wing strut mounts are weak. (Having said that, the weak prop adaptor does save motor damage and can be changed without opening cowl IF done with a bit careful fiddling.
Overall: Nice and relaxing to use on a dead calm day. Marked as great value as it is available for circa 86 (as at feb 2013)if you shop around.

GREAT
Strengths: Good park size. Bigger than the other ultra micros. With a colour scheme that gives good visability. ASX3 also helps it to handle wind well.
Weaknesses: I don't find that the flaps make a big difference. Fragile tail. Some quality control issues which I have not experienced myself.
Overall: A great flyer ... currently my favorite plane.

EXCELLENT 'FLAP' FLIER IN MINIATURE
Strengths: Solid build Powerful setup Box is storage Flaps big tyres AS3X
Weaknesses: Lost a leg cover after 2nd flight. Fixed with wire loop. Nothing other than that
Overall: As with all E-flite UMX's it's expensive for a model of it's size, indead twice it's size, but it does everything you expect from E-flite. Excellent 10/10
