GOOD AIRFRAME, BAD ELECTRICS
Strengths: Stable, areobatic, VERY stong, quite powerful
Weaknesses: All of the servos had to be replaced, had to convert the alierons to standard conections/ hinges. ESC soldered directly onto the motor
Overall: Great airframe but let down by the shoddy electrics. I would recommend it if you could get it as just the airframe. Seems to be identical to the Multiplex Easy Glider.

TYPICAL CHINESE JOB WITH BITS FALLING OFF!
Strengths: Complete kit including R/C. Excellent value. Flies well, but I would prefer a tad more power.
Weaknesses: No brake( - see review by Mr Wibbley above). Spinner broke under full power on launch. Aileron horn worked loose. No spares.
Overall: Essentially a good model, but needs an experienced modeller to fix/modify the cheap bits that fall off. The lack of spare parts is a real concern. Multiplex could prove cheaper in the long run.

TYPICAL CHINESE 90 OK, BUT 10% RUINS THE WHOLE THING
Strengths: everything in one box, inc lipo & charger. The decals are precut, just peel and stick
Weaknesses: the aileron hinges are hopeless, far to stiff and thus stall the servos. They never return to the same hands off position twice. U need a lump of lead in the nose to balance it. C of G not mentioned in the destructions. How to set the brake function on the esc is not mentioned either. (full throttle, connect batt, wait for beep-bop, close throttle)
Overall: If only they had fitted conventional aileron & rudder horns instead of the nifty combined hinge & horn it would have been 11 out of 10. I remounted the aileron servos in the wings & used normal hinges and control horns. Given the choice again, would buy the multiplex easy glider. Works out more expensive overall, but u will get better quality airfarme and components. Also fit a lanyard using elastic to the canopy, the catch is none too sturdy. Mine has already come off in flight.

A LOVELY MODEL AND QUITE STURDY
Weaknesses: The hinges on the aileron and rudder, which changed the trim of the model after each actuation
Overall: Fair but not for a beginner
