GOOD LOOKING AND EASY FLYING
Strengths: Flies very well. Flaps work well to slow landing. An inverted <95 or so four stroke fits easily in the cowling and sounds great on this model .
Weaknesses: Tail wheel/rudder control wire diameter needs increasing as its too soft and springy. I used much thicker wire. The Pilots are too heavy and look awful.
Overall: Oleo wheels look great but inner wires on wing need bending forward so the wheels are near the front of the wing. This points the undercarriage forward and prevents frequent nose overs on taxiing.

GOOD VFM, EXCELLENT FLIER
Strengths: EAsy to assemble, looks good in the air. Excellent "flaps trainer"
Weaknesses: 'Orrible pilots! Poor decals.
Overall: An excellent flying model. Stable, easy to fly. 91 FS fits in easily. Quite aerobatic but at its best being flown in a scale like manner.

GOOD SOLID PLANE
Strengths: Well constructed, easy to repair, A good fit for a 61 motor or a 91 four stroke.
Weaknesses: Weak at point of landing gear, balancing can be an issue.
Overall: Re-enforce the landing gear, balance both CG and lateral properly and you got yourself a plane that will fly for years.

VERY GOOD VFM
Strengths: superb flier really looks the part in the air particularly with flaps down on a slow fly-by with the ASP 70 purring
Weaknesses: tailwheel steering linkage could have been better thought out, the decals are thin and the red covering shows through, the belly fairing really should have been replaced before going into production and the landing gear fairings are not the best - all minor probs really.
Overall: excellent kit for the price perfect for anyone wanting to practice some scale type flying

GOOD VALUE FOR MONEY
Strengths: Good quaulity components accurately cut
Weaknesses: Slighty Vague would agree with reveiwer that you must have built an ARTF before in order to build this kit
Overall: Despite minor imperfections a good kit that flies extremly well (mine has a Thunder Tiger .91 up front Would suggest that a little more detail was incorporated ie fuel tank and guages onthe wings,Bulged rear canopy side panels,landing light on port u/c Spin Strakes ? Sorry Guys I used own a real one!
