The Percival Mew Gull is of typical Seagull quality which is excellent. Using an O.S.120AX with stock muffler which is perfectly matched to this plane. Stock landing gear is weak, must be beefed-up and relocated, otherwise would have a five star rating. Elevator surface is small and loses auhority at slow speeds, This is not an aerobatic airplane, but is not designed to be. Over 100 flights and everything is still tight. This airplane is "eye candy" and always draws a crowd at events. Would definitely buy again and would recommend for experienced pilots. An overall good buy.

Conversion to electric was easy. Eflight 110 motor. HV 85 ESC. Flies well and is unique looking. Moved main gear slightly forward to ease grass taxi. Bent wires Used more elevator travel then specified , at slow speed elevator loses effectivness. A great pleasure to Fly !!!!!!!!!!!
