This great looking and amazingly well priced little L-19 is of a traditional balsa construction, it features a highly detailed printed covering in an authentic US Army scheme and is just the ticket for some scale flying on calm days!
 
Whilst the fuselage is of a fully sheeted balsa construction for strength & profile, the Bird Dog is suprisingly light and only requires a low power/low cost power train, the servo count is also low and with only standard 9g servo's required, one thing is for sure, this is a scale model that won't break the bank to build! The supplied hardware is comprehensive & nice quality, particularly considering the low price of this kit, the L-19 is also practical and features a removable 1pc wing for easy transport, an easy access battery hatch and robust under-carriage, including a steerable tail wheel.
 
If you are looking for an easy to fly scale model in the "parkfly" size, the L-19 may just be for you, cheap to buy and build, and offering the kind of durability that only balsa can deliver, this Bird Dog is just great value for money!

There are two sides of this product, one I really like ("the bright side") and the "dark side", which I will explain later on. First, to the good stuff. this plane looks awesome! The paint scheme is brilliantly chosen, and the looks are fantastic! Furthermore the plane is mainly beautifully crafted, the cover has been properly applied, the details are mostly well made. There is plenty of material such as pushrods screws and so even, there is even an hex tip screwdriver coming along with the kit! (pretty astonishing for a 40$ kit). Once assembled, this plane cashing the cheque it wrote with its looks. It flies extremely nice & precise.
As mentioned, there are also some downsides. As some others already have mentioned, the pushrod for the rudder is misplaced. Therefore you have to either change the location of the pushrod (drilling a new hole) or attaching some plywood as I did it for myself (I added some pictures in the files section). On my plane, the holes for the screws of the wing did not fit. I had to re-thrill the holes to attach the wing. The manual comes in colour, but is partly outdated.
Knowing those drawbacks now, I would still buy the plane. The Chinese engineering can be enhanced with some self-engineering, which allows you to enjoy this magnificent looking flyer.
some hard facts: I am using a NTM Prop Drive 28-26 1000KV, 30 AMP Plush ECS an original 9x6 APC
