I use the props linked to below. I get them from the UK warehouse and don't see them listed for US. They are very strong, fit the T Motor 2206 perfectly, cost next to nothing and work great. I use the 7" versions on the Minis and 10" versions on the 39".

My second favourite are the Tuff. They are not as 'tuff' as the Turnigy stuff though ..

Yes the servos swapped out fairly easily (thankfully!)

I got the plane up for its maiden flight yesterday and everything worked perfectly. What an incredible piece of engineering this little thing is!
I couldn't wipe the grin off my face while it was airborne.

I'll try emailing TH and see if they can do anything for me regarding the original servos, hopefully they'll be able to throw me a bone.

Judging by how this MXS-C flies I will likely be purchasing more planes from them.

Thanks for the help everyone.

Great to hear it Springbok!

Cody would be very proud to hear about your satisfaction with the MXS-C. He does nice work and it's great to hear from those that appreciate it.

Could there be another Wojcik design in our future...

Cody is a beast! He's gotta be one of the most entertaining people I've ever seen fly. His style is unique and his skills are clearly world class.

One of my all time favorite rc flying vids. Really sick stuff....

CG confusion

I finished building my MXS and started balancing the plane. The manual says the CG is 3.56" behind the leading edge or 1.25" behind the wood spar. Being an engineer I did both of these measurements and discovered they end up in different locations. 3.56" behind the leading edge is actually a little more than 1.5" behind the spar.

Clearly it's a mistake in the manual, so which CG location is correct?

Steve_rc, I prefer mine tail heavy makes for better slow 3d but the battery placement would depend on how you are going to fly it. That is why I would say take some Velcro and tack it on and fly move alittle then fly some more to see where you like it most. Once you have found your sweet spot cut your hole and off you go again. I can promise you that you will love this plane!!!

I agree with that except for the last part - cutting the hole. Using Velcro allows you to put the battery farther forward on windy days or aft for calm or indoors.

Well I decided to just go with the 3.56" from the LE and maidened tonight. The CG must be fairly forgiving since I was able to maintain reasonable control. In my shop I had the CG nailed so that the battery was in the middle of the velcro strip.
I am sooooo glad I used conservative throws and expo. +/- 30 degrees with 70%.

I had enough light to fly out 2 batteries flying the circuit at the club field before the sun set. It's definitely a handful for simple cruising around.

Next, 3D lessons from someone in the club!
