Why donīt you order one in germany or somewhere other? The shipping shouldnīt be so expensive, not?

I built 3 days to the first fly, the hatch to get into the fuselage and the battery tray took time and a little bit thinking.. After the first landings, improving the gear took also much time..

If it breaks at the under side ("predetermined breaking point") you can easy fix it by drilling out and glueing in some 3mm/4mm cf rod, the upper side is the best not to fix, instead build new from some 4mm and 5mm brass/alu tube.

My HK motor which flies about 10 lipos is finished at the bearings now, too -.- time to get the replace motor from mpx, Iīm waiting for two months now.

Sat down last eve and assembled this kit in about an hour and a half. Much of that time was spent learning how to set-up a model on the Hitec Aurora 9X transmitter for the first time. But I am very impressed with the radio AND the model for sure. I took it our for first flights early this morning. Barely a touch of a breeze. The mode l eased into the air on the takeoff roll on its own, with but a click or two of elevator and aileron needed. What a sweet flyer! Very stable, a bunch of fun to land and takeoff with half flaps set. I really do love how nicely Mutiplex aircraft fly.









A shout out to Robb for helping with photos and for taking the sticks so I could also shoot some.

They will be showing in stock any day now as they have been leaving our warehouse all week. Between transporting, unloading the freight and checking things in it takes a little time.
