After all the focus on the SpeedFire and HP stuff it will be nice to wind down with a new foamie - the MPX DogFighter.....

Airframe will be collected in Germany in a couple of days, the rest will be sourced internally from the "nice to have" drawer.

Well here we go again...
This years project will be my first molded Hotliner - The V-max ECO with a 67" span.
This airframe is also known as the Graupner Speed, Staufenbiel Hawk, Wilco, LanYu, F5B Tiger and is a well proven bird.

I will build mine using Dymond D60s in the wings and a Hyperion Atlas 11 AMB digital "MG-B" servo in the tail.

The rest of the planned setup:

NEU 1115/1Y (finally I've got good use of it!)
Kontronik KPG25 5.2:1 gearbox
Suppo200A ESC
CC bec
RFM turbo spinner
RFM 15*16 folding
Lipos: GensACE 5S2200 30/60C
