The Simitri F5J is a brilliant design, with top quality construction and amazing value. The wing and tailplane are of all spread carbon construction, making the model extremely tough, rigid, and light. The aerodynamic design is similar to the Maxa and the Perfection - thus aerodynamically and structurally it has an excellent herritage. This shows in its very forgiving flying characteristics, excellent speed range, superb glide angle and also a very low sink speed.

The fuselage is very well thought out, with the motor, speed control, and rudder and elevator servos fitting at the front of the pod, with enough room to slip the battery through the large canopy hatch into the ample space behind the servos. Aft of that there is a ballast tube, so the plane's weight can be adjusted for windy conditions - however its excellent polar gives it a good speed range so extra weight is only beneficial for wind speeds above 15 mph (7m/s, 24 km/h).

The spread carbon skinned wing has a substantial spar, allowing high energy aerobatics if required. The wing is of conventional three piece construction. The control surfaces are large, so camber changes are very effective, and the large flaps allow the plane to be spot landed with ease. The spread carbon tailplane has a separate elevator to give very precise pitch control. The carbon fin sports a large film covered rudder to minimise tail weight, and is removable to help with transportation. The fit and finish is very good, with all the parts sliding into place perfectly. The pushrods, all control horns and linkages are supplied. The only work required to get the model airborne is gluing the tailboom and installing the RC and powertrain.
