GREAT, CHEAP LOW-WING TRAINER.
Strengths: Easy to fly, very strong, can fly in any conditions, responsive, but also smooth.
Weaknesses: Poor covering. Looks great, but soon gets damaged and unable to repair the sticky back film.
Overall: One of my favourite hacks. Has a TT54 four stroke and is ideal. Does all aerobatics, very strong, even pushing the envelope, nothing has moved or caused concern

CHEAP & CHEERFUL
Strengths: Ease of assembly. Flies well, very fast, on full throws is very nimble
Weaknesses: Covering material, multicoloured brittle and self adhesive. Very easy to puncture and so difficult to patch. I recovered mine after a year of flying - easily done.
Overall: A good intermediate trainer, good to practice new skills with. Put a cheap 40 in and care only a little about damaging it.

BRILLIANT
Strengths: Good quality product, easy to put together, flies lovely, excellent low wing trainer.
Weaknesses: I did have a slight problem with some of the covering on an aileron lifting but apart from that nothing.
Overall: A must after you are ready to move on to your first low winger.
