NICE FLIER
Strengths: Great aerobat, probably best I have flown.
Weaknesses: Structurally quite weak particularly around the U/C.
Overall: I stupidly forgot to set the TX timer on the first flight and over cooked it. It dropped from about 0.5 metere onto the runway dead stick and took the undercarriage clean off at what appears to be a structural fault point. It repaired fairly easily and it appears to be stronger after the use of some lightweight block balsa in the reair.

GREAT 3D AIRCRAFT
Strengths: Easy to handle and build
Weaknesses: Landing gear attachment point is very weak. Even the lightest of heavy landings see this area fail.
Overall: Great model and I'm pleased I bought it.

BEST 40 SIZE EXTRA BY FAR
Strengths: high quality ultracote finish. magnetic canopy, plug in feather-light wings. predictable and very able 3D performance.
Weaknesses: cowl won't fit without some sanding down of the fuselage. elevator hinging very difficult (slot in tail would easily solve this problem). warped wing on some models. supplied plastic spinner does not fit so cannot be used.
Overall: even with a warped wing i cannot fault this plane. being so light it is best flown in low wind conditions, and the aerobatic performance is limited only by the experience of the flyer.

STUNNING LITTLE AEROBAT
Strengths: Light, attractive colour scheme, flies beautifully, fits in the car in one piece. Excellent manual.
Weaknesses: My rudder needed a little surgery with the knife to get it at 90 degrees to the stab' - care is required.
Overall: Superb, stunning. A delight to fly. She prefers calmer, or windless days and will reward with a handy flight envelope limited only by the pilot.
