Goldwing mxs-r 70

Does anyone know anything about the flying characteristics of this bird???

Is it 3D or precision flying??? cause a friend is selling it and I'm thinking to buy it but I don't like precision flying I like low and slow 3D flying

Try doing a search to see what people said about it. Did it last long in the threads? Was it positive/negative? One thing I've figured out is if its got a long thread following its usually because people have a lot to say about it. I would use that.

I've searched a lot but I couldn't find anything except one very short thread

I have just received my Skyline MXS-R 60" which is basically the same plane.
I will make a build thread + flight review video soon, stay tuned
Yes, that is the plane. No, it's not me on the picture

This may help you decide. This guy flies very well, plane seems to 3D very well too, harrier looks very stable

I had the opportunity to fly the plane today at our field, and I liked it, it is very stable in harriers and hovering and it looks like a good 3D bird

The only thing that bothered me is the power, it felt a bit under powered!

Setup:
Hacker A50 10S
ESC Hacker
Prop 16x8
2600mah 6S 40C

This setup does not look right to me, the prop is too big for the motor and the battery will not be able to deliver the current required.
I'll be running a NTM 42-58 500kV on 6S 3300 35C starting with a 16x8 and checking on the wattmeter.

Now it is the opposite way, kV is too low for this prop on 6S. You should have at least a 16X10 or 17X9.
Anyway, IMO the final rpms would be on the lower side and you will not get a crisp response for 3D. Maybe that is why it felt underpowered to you.
I should be starting my build this weekend.
