I will say this. In my experience the fit and finish build quality of this plane is far superior to that other 3D brand Extra 300. The wings fit tightly to the fuse with no gaps. The wings fit snugly to the wing tube and wing tube to the fuse, (other plane was sloppy, and that always irritated me). The whole plane just feels built better and higher quality.

For the downside, all of this comes at a price, in the sum of 56ozs. My other plane only weighed 44ozs. the only difference being the other plane used 3s 2600 packs. That accounts for 4.5-5ozs. difference. Still it seems to be quite a bit heavier.

Only has two short flights on it and it was very windy. So as far as flying,time will tell.

What prop are you using?

I am using an APC 14x7. It seems to have plenty of thrust. But it was very windy and I only got in two short flights. I hope to be able to get a few more in tomorrow.

Here is the MXS on a 14x7 and 750kV version of your motor... not long after this video I quit using the APCs replaced by a PJN. Using 4s 2650mAh batts.

Hard to believe this was almost 3 years ago.
