Strengths:
Construction is relatively easy wood and foam veneer construction with relatively fast construction time if you have built one or two models before. . . .
Weaknesses:
After some experience and if you have a roughish grass field I beefed up the mounting for my U/C to prevent damage to the fuselage if the U/C was ripped off. Aside from that the model is pretty good. . .
Overall:
This is a great general sport hack model which has been a massive workhorse for me. It does aerobatics pretty well, looks great in the sky, and with beefing up of tow points makes a great glider tug and has been known to tow three Ridge Runts behind it. Would I buy another? - Yes I would. .

Strengths:
fast or slow flying a dream, capable of all aerobatics at low and high speeds, flies well even when blowing a gale, rugged tough, fun machine. . . .
Weaknesses:
none. . . .
Overall:
As much fun as the Wot 4, you will have to make the chice which one to fly. Flies superb even in a gale so ideal club flying machine, easy build, radio gear fitment a bit tight, Powered by OS 55ax, gives superb power low speed handling a dream. . .

Andy Blackburn  |  Dec 30, 2010

Strengths:
Very rewarding to fly, particularly with a 4-stroke. Very good low-speed manners. . .
Weaknesses:
Perhaps a bit pricey compared to some ARTFs. Composite u/c has pin-holes, suggest leaving it un-painted. . .
Overall:
Took about 11 weeks to build (with a box-top colour scheme in film), compared to 4-5 weeks for an ARTF. Instructions OK with new addendum sheet. Unlimited vertical with a Laser 70, OS 70 FS or similar might be nearly as good. Benefits from a bit of rudder-elevator mixing for clean stall-turns.
