New Product
Skywing's 48-in Full-fuse EPP MXS with painted color schemes (new!)

Hi pilots,

Skywing is bringing us something new and different again!

This time, it is a 48-in full-fuse MXS! It has similar dimensions as those of the Skywing's 48-in full-fuse Edge and Slick, yet it's a major upgrade from the other 2 planes.

On surface, you can see more sophiscated graphics on the new plane with more colors and nice transitions of colors, which are made possible with Skywing's new high-resolution flat-bed printer.

Deep down, there are also structural innovations: the tails are now much more stiff, which will enable you to fly more precise and crispy maneuvers.

I've got 2 photos [note: updated with more photos now.] from Skywing and would like to share them with you. I'll post more as I receive more from Skywing.

Cheers,

feda

Love my MXS with the flat sides but this one looks way better. Wonder how long before we see them stocked, before the snow fly's? John

I don't see a servo slot on the side of tail, does it mean this is going to be a pull-pull setup for rudder?

Nice plane! I really like the shaping on the cowl.

The color schemes... not so much. Maybe work with someone on those... I think twisted hobbys uses similar printing machines, and their color schemes are always fantastic.

Does look kind of Tropicana-ish but the colors are bright, which is all I really care about. Like to see it with the wings on.

Yes, the rudder control will be pull-pull.

Hi feda,

May I propose a new title for this thread based on the title of the thread for the flat-sided Skywing 48" MXS from a couple of years ago?

"The best getting better"

the shaping of cowl is definitely an improvement from previous models. the use of pull-pull indicates that the sturcture would be significantly different too.

Oh heck yes, I'm in. I was hoping for a 55" but maybe this means the next 55" will be a SLICK!!!! This thing looks sweet, but my wife is going to be pi$$ed, I'm supposed to be getting rid of planes not getting more. Looks like I better get busy in the for sale forums. We need more photo's of the wings and inside structure.
