Just received my bird today and ordered the SW-60 separately. I the hook phase of construction. The airframe went together well. I only had an issue with the canopy latch and had to file the opening slightly to latch it securely.
You will however need to download the aircrafts instruction manual from this site as it is more concise versus the paper document that came with the plane. You will also have to go to SW-jet.com and download the manual since it is not included? with the high dollar engine.
Overall the aircraft appears well made and the surface finish is very smooth for an EPO construction. All the components appear to be first rate.
I did notice that some of the white cover up decals came off from handling, However they are not really necessary since the fit and finish is top shelf.
I am giving the aircraft a 4 star rating since the canopy latch needed rework and the smoke tubing bracket requires relocating once the engine was installed to avoid interference with the turbines mounting brackets. An issue that is very obvious.
