LEGO Creator Mini Skyflyers Review for MF0

<Insert Nemesis>
The Box
So I picked this up at Five Below awhile ago, and they had these in there for awhile. Also seen them in Toys R Us recently so might still be around though technically I believe this is a out of print set.

Parts 1
Can you build some sort of creation right away?

I could not think of anything but I believe others have been successful but I am sticking to my results on this review. On the other hand I think the set builds might be usable in other areas so I am going with a score of 0 for this question.

Parts 2
Is it below, at, or above the golden ratio? (10 cents per piece)

Well, this is an interesting one...
Five Below: $5/62= $0.08 Below +5
Original Price: $6.99/62=$0.11 Above -10
Toys R Us: $7.99 so certainly Above -10

In Scale Jet Plane...
If you can't build a creation right away, or choose not to, does it have parts you should be able to put into use right away? 

Decent amount of common pieces but nothing in the 'frame skeleton' range but still quite a few. +5

Does it have more than a handful of immediately useful parts? 

Another close call and part of me wants to give a zero but will say yes over all giving this set a +5.

Total: Well this should be interesting.

5 Below: We have 10 points giving us a A- set.

Original Price and Others: We have 0 points for a B set.

Going over the Golden Ratio can be quite the problem it seems! Well the two places in this set look great and quite in the 7p scale spirit. With say three more of the right pieces for landing gear they could go great on the table as part of the terrain aka some kind of airport or airforce base look. The shuttle is clearly another scale but could be nice looking in Intercept Orbit once given some systems.
