Review by: Phil BirdFun little Hotliner
Positives. Good value little Hotliner. Looks great. The molding is actually quite good for something made in China. The molded gap seals are very well done. The fit of the parts is good. Supplied accessories are fine.
Negatives. The model is very heavy, puddles of resin can be seen inside the fuse. There is a slight twist of the flaps and ailerons, due perhaps from being released too soon from the molds. Wing molding could have been done better at the trailing edge as its very thick.
I fitted a 1400kv Gliderdrive motor. 10X6 folding Graupner prop. 60A YGE controller. 1800ma 3S battery. BMS 126 servo's on the flaps and elevator and DS 843 servo's on the ailerons.
It flies very well. Just the thing for when its to windy for the F5J models and it also helps to keep the reflexes in tune.

I was thrilled to find this superb little chuck around model was neatly moulded to a crisp and strong standard offering amazing value for money too. I am enjoying the quick installation at the moment ..beats a Valenta model in all respects ..as it is a JW design I know I have invested in a pedigree performance & I look forward to thrashing it next week.I do hope Jonathan & the team offer more designs which I will also buy..Neil sent it to me post haste & of course all was packaged safely as usual.I used an MVVS motor to ensure I have unlimited vertical urge..need to do the design justice in the electron discharge department.

Great service from Neil as always
Only downside was the absence of any build notes for this electric version.
Otherwise excellent build quality and canít wait to be able to get out and fly it
