Yes, I got mine yesterday
It's about half built now
I've found a few minor errors in the manual though... Mis-numbered parts on the parts diagram, No mention of having to cut down the cockpit screen to size, but the build quality is up to the normal MPX level.

Assembly is quite straight forward. The only tricky bit (so far) was bending the tail wheel wire into shape. The way it is fixed to the fin looks rather weak so I used some off cut elapour to make it stronger.

I went for the MPX power set as well so no modifications needed to get the motor to fit like I had with my Twinstar II.

I'll add some pictures when I've cropped and resized them.

Here it is Still needs ESC,battery and radio to be fitted, but CofG looks fine with them "placed" in the fuzelarge.

Servo throws and trims still need to be set up as well.

Yes I'll post some more when I've finished putting it together. I've been taking pictures during the build.

The top and botom wings are glued together, so the process is to unbolt the wings from the fuzelarge (one bolt for top, one for bottom), gently spread them apart and slide the fuzelarge out backwards. Servos will need to be disconnected.

I've not fitted the radio reciever yet, but one option is to mount it on the top of the bottom wing with in the fuzelarge, in which case the rudder and elevator servos and the throttle lead to the ESC will need to be disconnected when the wings are removed. I think I will make up a little circuuit board like the one in the Twinstar II to make these connections easier.
