Strengths:
Nice simple structure,pretty lines. Good quality materials supplied in kit. . .
Weaknesses:
No guidance on brushless motor set-ups. Only really flyable on very calm days due to low weight. . .
Overall:
A good,fun model to build,could do with a little more guidance on motor set-up. Would make a nice model scaled up. . .

Strengths:
stable flight moderately easy build for anyone thats ever built a stick and tissue model. can be in the air for less than £80 + tx. . .
Weaknesses:
my version of the kit had no brushless motor recomendations. I believe this has been addressed in later versions poor snakes and clevises supplied. . .
Overall:
The kit contents are mostly of good quality a large amount of accurate cnc parts to speed things up. before starting the build I replaced the incuded all nylon snakes with a set with a steel core and metal clevises. ( the supplied plastic ones let the kit down)also using the auw predictions I chose a 13amp brushless outrunner 30amp esc and 1300mah 20c 3s1p lipo for the power train. Also 4 cheap micro servos and a hitech 5ch nano rx.
