SUPERB MODEL
Strengths: looks, performance,hardwearing, fun, flies superb with the 480 motor fast and slow.
Weaknesses: original foam is a bit soft and paint can look tatty after a while, but adds to realism, retracts need seperate channels to allow servo travel for each to be adjusted.
Overall: still going after 4 years, no problems with retracts, use MG servos all over,belly pan needs taping on as comes adrift, but overall a superb faoay warbird.

GREAT LITTLE MODEL
Strengths: Goes together well, nice flyer. Retracts work well.
Weaknesses: The underwing cover is not very secure, added some wood blocks and additiona screws.
Overall: Had mine for almost 12 months now and got it out today as th strip is finally dry enough for it to fly. I have an Axi 2214 and it leaps off the groubnd in no time, for more realistic take offs anly 1/2 throttle is required. It looks really good with the wheels retracted and flys very smooth and can handle quite a bit of wind. Rudder is not very effective.

VERY SCALE LOOKS!
Strengths: Scale look out of the box. Has all the British charm locked up inside! Retracts make it look authentic, you cant have fixed wheels if you are given the option of retracts
Weaknesses: Method of holding bottom servo cover on. No wheel door covers. Put new wheel wells on, but added the wheel wells for the real plane which was a very strange thing to do. Was so easy to build, only took a day to build, i got bored waiting for a day to maiden it. Crappy plastic spinner, only stayed on for a few flights then pinged of mid flight, never goes on properly now, have resorted to siliconing it on. Up close it had a kind of faint cheap look about it.
Overall: Very nice plane, got it and had finished building it in about a day, even with my lack of building knowledge saw it rocket off the ground with a budget BRC bell motor rattling away at the front giving an authentic roar of what ever kind of engine seafurys had!

A LONG OVERDUE KIT OF A GREAT BRITISH AEROPLANE
Strengths: This kit is a well detailed model, with retracts supplied, which goes like stink and looks great. Quick assembly means with either the recommended E-Flite motors or another brushless set up, you can be flying your warbird after just one nights work. Excellent VFM and a superb kit
Weaknesses: The finish is easy to mark, but can be easily touched up with Humbrol enamels. The tail wheel is in the wrong place, the main c/f spar needs a touch more glue and the belly pan should really be supplied with screws to hold it on as velcro doesn't cut it. The recommended esc is a 40A, based on 5 servos, but if you fit the optional rudder, you will need a 60A esc.
Overall: A quick and easy build which oozes style. Very tempting to add extra bits and pieces, such as gear doors for that scale look. The rockets are a bit toy like, but if you're using the retracts leave them on, 'cos they really set of the profile in a steep diving attack run! Flies great and looks superb in the air.
