Customer Reviews

An airplane that is both light and big, making it easier to fly and land, and has very good aero design, with lots of side area and little rudder coupling into the other axes. Review by Ken
The big advantage of this airplane is that it is both large and light, so it has the advantages of large airplanes--easy to see at longer range and more stable to disturbances, without the penalty of high aerobatic and landing speeds. It will fly both slow 3d, including slow in knife edge, and reasonable pattern. It also has an aerodynamic design that minimizes coupling of rudder into other axes. I have not yet bothered with any mixes in knife edge. It pulls away from the canopy a bit in one direction, and other coupling is minor. I fly vertical knife edge figure 8s without any mixes. I have a Dualsky 3542 with 790KV, a 13-6.5 prop, and 3S 2200. I use high resolution servos, important if you use large throws. The good aerobatic performance does not come with the penalty that the pilot has to be highly skilled. It is a good, reasonably forgiving, sport airplane and can be flown quite casually if that is your preference.

There is plenty of room, including to shift the battery fore and aft. Use a battery strap. The structure is sophisticated, with plywood, carbon fiber, sheet EPP, and wire cut foam of some kind, and appears to be jig-built. There is good internal structure for the hinges. The only bad hardware was the servo arm extensions, which were too weak in torsion and had oversized holes--the other hardware was good to excellent. I do have a slight twist in one wing and am flying with some rudder trim,but it flies well enough that I have not taken the time to work on that (by adjusting the root incidence a little.) Another problem in summer heat is that the battery cooling is not adequate, and I am still working on where to add holes.

Highly recommended for both casual sport flying and more serious practice.

Order # 100139057 Review by Timothy
I was skeptical that a plane in this price range would be worth the trouble but I was in for a pleasant surprise. The overall kit quality is very good and builds into a very handsome model with the same trim scheme as the full scale MXS. Assembling the plane went well although I replaced the included pushrod connectors but this is a personal preference. The MXS flies very well and has a VERY large flight envelope but is happiest puttering around doing anything you want to try. I was immediately comfortable with it. I am still impressed in how much airplane you get for the money and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone. (Posted on 2/22/2016)
