GOOD VALUE
Strengths: Relatively easy to assmble, flies well. Inexpensive for a plabe this size.
Weaknesses: Wood quality not brilliant, the covering is delicate and lands rather quickly - I am reluctant to slow it up too much as I think it has rather a high stalling speed compared to something like a WOT 4. Would be a lot better with flaps. I am considering modifying the wing to fit them.
Overall: Good hack, quick to build and very well priced.

GOOD SUNDAY HACK.
Strengths: Cheap, but good quality kit, strong and the u/c can soak up landings well
Weaknesses: Tail seems weak, can cause flutter at high speed. Covering is very fragile, being PVC sticky stuff. Will burst if prodded on cold days, and will get hanger rash quickly.
Overall: Apart from the covering, does look good and very aerobatic, but good follow-on low-wing trainer.

Weaknesses: U/cart collapsed on 2nd landing,which was not a hard landing,strengthened with Epoxy - has been OK since

NOT WORTH THE MONEY
Strengths: Easy to fly Very cheap
Weaknesses: Airframe splinters and disintegrates on the slightest landing error because the formers and wing ribs split along the grain.
Overall: I have now had 3 of these because they were so cheap - under 50. The first was destroyed when the elevator clevis dismantled itself in flight, the second wing fell apart when the wingtip touched on landing. The third is still awaiting repair after a slightly heavy landing. If you can fly then get a better plane, if you can't then get something stronger.

Strengths: flies well and price
Weaknesses: The aircraft is weak from the covering which is easily damaged to the build quality the wood is fragile and just holding the aircraft the balsa cracks. and wont stand upto a heavy landing they break just behind the wing/cockpit.
Overall: there are better and stronger low wing trainers for the price.

GREAT MODEL
Strengths: Flys well, ideal for learning basic aerobatics loops, rolls & spins, great first low wing model.
Weaknesses: Covering tears easily, main undercarriage needs slight bend forward for better stability. Will drop a wing if air speed drops too much.
Overall: Great value for money.

THE BEST ARTF IVE EVER OWNED
Strengths: needen no additional weight to acheve c.g., it is very easy to fly and it is an ideal follow on model which can run on cheap radio gear and can havve anazing proformance if needed if damaged can be easily repaired and will fly in a strong wind. the model can be chucked in the back of the car and be set up at the field in miniimal time upright engine makes it ideal if you dont have a helper
Weaknesses: the supplied tank is too short (clunk wont touch the top and bottom of the tank)
Overall: the best artf model ive ever had it is perfect for a beginner and can proform for expert fliers i enterd mine in a f3a comp
