Nice! December 9, 2012
Reviewer: Adam from Toronto, ON Canada  
jD-Simplex went together in no time.  At the time I purchased it was brand new to the market and did not have a manual.  Without a manual, and a few pictures Dany provided on this website, it was still a quick build.

All the electronics worked flawless.  With the online wiki, was fairly easy to setup with only a few setbacks due to user error ;)

The kit does not include screws to mount the motors.  I am not sure if this is intentional.  I was lucky enough to be able to pick up my kit from Canadadrones myself and we noticed before I left and Dany provided me the appropriate screws.  

Can't wait for better weather to get more flying in.

With Manual i would rate 5 stars.
