Next multiplex bird?
 
Hey guys, I'm wondering which MPX bird I should get next.

I have a Xeno and Easystar currently, could you recommend me one that would be okay with my spare rimfire motor ?

Not to self bump, but is the Twinstar II discontinued?

If youīve flown Easy Star then a natural step up might perhaps be an Easy Glider Pro itīs such fun too fly, I fly mine at least once a day, canīt get enough :D youīll love it itīs a real blast !

I was considering easyglider.

is it a bit more 'active' than easystar?

and how is gemini? more like 3d/aerobatics?

I'll second that. The Gemini is a nice flying airplane, not really 3D, but very aerobatic and fun to fly.

okay guys, I've narrowed it to the Gemini and Funcub (those floats look damnnn fun in winter). :D

#8 restlessswind Aug 18, 2011 03:11 PM

tough choice....I would think Funcub would need a bigger, slower motor though to really enjoy it.

Well, if you are flying the Xeno, I would just go ahead and get the new offering from Multiplex, the Dogfighter. There is a thread in the Foamies/Kit board.

As for the Gemini, mine was fun but the landing gear where a huge bother. Bad design on landing gear; same as with the MiniMag, a great plane but poor landing gear design.
