Description: The new must-have indoor model/toy ?

BRILLIANT FUN FOR THE PRICE
Strengths: Unbelievable value at 8.99 in Play.com sale! Flies well once you get the knack of nudging the rudder.
Weaknesses: No rudder control on the glide. Won't fly in sunlight. Mine came unglued in a few places after crashes
Overall: Excellent little fun flier - the weaknesses I've mentioned are no big deal.

AT LAST A LIVINGROOM FLIER
Strengths: Flies in my lounge Durable it is unscathed despite hitting the wall lots of times. Turns left on a sixpence needs more room to the right
Weaknesses: Battery only lasted 30 cycles because the charger charges it too quickly. No rudder control on glide Built in Lipo battery IR control doesn't work well outdoors Dives in right hand turns Does not always react promptly to control inputs
Overall: A good little toy to fly at home. Good value for money. Flew better after extending rudder and reducing weight at rear. I have a lighter C/F airframe waiting for the gear when the foam one breaks.

FUN!
Strengths: Very cheap, very easy to operate.
Weaknesses: Fragile
Overall: Incredible value and good wholesome fun. Check out The Entertainer for PalmZ for 12. I'm tempted to buy more and use the guts for some home-brew versions - 2 channel radio and flight pack for 12?!! Time to get some balsa out! Flies just fine when trimmed - almost turns on a dime. Just watch that the rudder does not operate on glide or very slow throttle.

DISAPOINTING
Strengths: fast, and quite fun
Weaknesses: Very fragile, needs a much bigger area to fly than the picoZ
Overall: Nice - but fragile and didnt fly very well - a bit of a disapointment really.
