FANTASTIC LARGE SCALE PLANE LOOKS GREAT FLYS GREAT
Strengths: A well constructed model and full kit including all the hardware. The firewall is pre coated with a varnish and every thing fits out of the box with no modification. Even the aluminum spinner is included.
Weaknesses: The nuts are all US sizes so be smart and swap then for metric where you can, also thread lock any nuts as the engines recommended do produce vibration and they will work loose if not locked down. Spares are not readily available but great service from tower hobbies across the pond. The wheel spats are a bit weak on the fixing side and liable to crack on grass strips but can be strengthened with added fiberglass. The wing stabilizers fixings are prone to work loose so lock tight again. Will not fit in a small car need an estate, MPV or van.
Overall: The plane is stable in wind and can handle most of the aerobatic maneuvers with precision. You will need to invest in some good quality servos as there are recommended torques for the servos as with most large models don't cut corners and you will be rewarded with a crowd pleaser that is a joy to own and fly.
