They are very fragile but fly wonderfully and look better than anything else of this size. So the tradeoff is worth it. They are not really suitable for rookies due their fragile nature. It might be advisable to have decent experience as you can't really get parts either.

They are made from a light foam - that is molded and then the two sides are glued together. They use light spars and have sparing use of plastic and light ply formers to keep the weight down but add strength in critical areas. It is perfect combo but they won't take abuse.
