TAUGHT ME MORE ABOUT FLYING THAN ANY OTHER PLANE I OWN
Strengths: predictable, floats and glides well, easy assembly and can be upgraded easily.
Weaknesses: none if you don't expect too much of it.
Overall: Great first flyer, don't bother crashing other more expensive planes first like me - just get a Slow Stick.

A GOOD EASY TO BUILD ALROUNDER.
Strengths: easy to get at parts, could be a very good learner aircraft ,would be easy to add extras to ie, camera, lights,ecta very good easy to build
Weaknesses: bit concerned about the air flow around the main body ,maybe a snap on plastic easy to fit one would do the trick be good and look ok as well,
Overall: a very good and easy to build plane ,simple but interesting,as before a plastic over fuselage would improve air flow .

BRILLIANT
Strengths: ease of construction, ease of flying
Weaknesses: quality of material, wing band attach points
Overall: Amazing fun, a good size aircraft as well, flies well in windy conditions. Fit a brushless into the gearbox, with a 900 3 cell lipo, and it goes vertical, but still flies at snail pace when throttled back. Hold the right stick fully back and she loops continuously untill you get tired. wing and tail material goes hard over a period of time and starts disintegrating, but replacements easy to get. Wing band attach points not large enough to hold the bands. Gauranteed to win any touch and go, or spot landing compettition with this palne.

LOVE IT!
Strengths: Low, Slow & Close-in. Perfect for a calm evening in a small field.
Weaknesses: Don't fly it into anything. (Not exactly "cool" - but who cares.)
Overall: Cheap and cheerful, huge grin factor.

AMAZING VALUE AND EASY TO FLY, BEGINNERS START HERE ..
Strengths: Easy to build, easy to fly. It's a bit slow so ideal for beginners. Makes a good camera model or night flyer (with lights added) Can fly indoors too. Relaxing to fly, even for expert flyers.
Weaknesses: Doesn't like a breeze, can be ...er....slow...
Overall: A classic beginners model and park hack.
