GOOD LOOKING IN THE AIR - FOR A FOAMY
Strengths: Mine was EPS, when covered in tissue and PU varnish makes it strong - and cheap. Good space to fit different motor/lipo combos. Looks great, flies well with a good power setup
Weaknesses: Can be a bit twitchy - keep cog well forward. Cowl is weak but resilient when padded. Hand launching can be difficult
Overall: I love flying this despite its tip stall tendency! I would get another when mine does not return from a mission.

GREAT LOOKING MODEL
Strengths: unusual subject, flies well on budget powertrain/servos.
Weaknesses: decals are truly brittle rubbish, cowling is too thin and easily broken (add some glass mat reinforcement)and poor nosecone fitment.
Overall: nice looking model, bit twitchy and can bite but ok if flown sensibly. repaint in a different scheme and add own graphics.

SHORT LIFE BUT LOVED IT!
Strengths: Mine was EPS painted. Easy build - looks marvellous in the air. Flies well at scale speeds in rolls etc.
Weaknesses: Viscious torque roll on hand launch. Lost high in a tree on second flight after major 35Mhz glitching.
Overall: Sad to lose it - was really enjoying it.

LOOKS SUPERB, EPO VERY TOUGH
Strengths: Mine is the EPO version & it`s very strong with thick reinforced wings & tail. Looks gorgeous in the air. Easy build
Weaknesses: It has a very visious tip stall when pushed & needs careful handling.Decals are brittle rubbish.Cowling has survived so far but worries me when landing. ps.Now have a bigger motor/esc have softened elevator with expo. Result!, easy launches with almost unlimited vertical & after the expo no more tip stall. Flys like it`s on rails & looks/sounds awesome (cowling tends to vibrate despite various prop /spinner combos= sounds like an engine) 60a esc, 8x6 prop, 2808 1700rpv motor.
Overall: Easy build, strong airframe, looks great. Try & find better decals (or get some inkjet friendly vinyl & print your own). If thrown around this will bite you in the ass (tip=use expo to soften elevator). Fly smoothly & will respond well. Now thinking about adding the allready present flaps.
