Wow that's cheap! She is very much a scale flyer, kept light she needs little power to fly scale and will slow to a crawl with flaps, or throw in 10000 mah or more and fly until you're brain dead bored.
Guys have flown these Decathlon aerobatics style, others have used these as glider tugs.
My opinion of weak points:
Anchor points in fuse and wings for the main wing struts are known to pull out, make very sure they are well secured!
Some have had good use out of the stock servos, others not so, I replaced my primary servos as a precautionary (as I do with most pnf planes).
Same applies for esc.
Nose wheel mount really needs strengthening. I converted my Cess to tail dragged, now I can fly from almost any field no matter how rough.
Oh and my stock prop was out of round, pitiful, replaced with apc and balanced.
That's about all really.
No bad vices, you have to try real hard to find stall, just a gorgeous flying plane that does get comments on the scale flight.
