P.S. I have an AXN on order now. My EZ needs to be retired.
I will be interested to see what you think. I have both now. I still do not have the Axn airworthy yet. Tried to fly it today but there was a balance problem. I am new pilot so I was afraid to go all out. I just tried to get a gentle power glide. It did not perform so well. but i am hopeful i can get it trimed out and balanced properly. It looks good but it is not as rugged as the easystar.
the brushless motor is powerful but it has a god aweful whine to it. Still it is a good bargain for $100 bucks but a new pilot would be better off with easystar as i think it is easier to fly and it is certainly more durable.
Just an opinion from a newbie that crashes everything i get my hands on!!!
