A VERY SATISFYING FUN MACHINE.
Strengths: From the start I had a good feeling about this one. All the parts fitted together nicely without any trimming, I had it all together in an evening. A lot of thought has gone into the setting out of the components. The radio installation within the fuz has been made compact and workable. Even the blind nuts for the engine mount have been pre-installed. Every thing is supplied and it is all of a high quality. Nothing needs to be substituted as with other similar competitive kits. All you need to add is an engine and radio.
Weaknesses: The only weakness I would say, and it is only knit-picking is that the C of G needs to be moved back about 15mm to make it fly nicely. I fitted a OS LA46 in mine as I had one, It is slightly lighter than the Irvine 39 so I thought more power less weight cant be wrong. To get the C of G where it is recommended I had to add 80grams of lead to the fire wall. This made the elevator very sluggish and the nose very heavy. After the first flight the lead was removed and normal service was resumed
Overall: It dose exactly what it says on the box and is good value for money. Move the C of G back a bit and it is a true fun fly. 10 out of 10
