Mini-Review
Fly Model 50cc MX 2

Thought I would share some photos and comments if anyone was wondering about these airframes there over on RCU this is my second one they are nice for the price no doubt sold my 30cc and went and bought this 50cc

Kinda of a mini review I suppose

Super fast shipping double boxed no damage, Covering very nice only few wrinkles no biggie

I have owned a lot of arf,s this is right there with the high dollar name brands at half the price pretty much

Got her $380 shipped carbon fiber spinner and landing gear and wing spars

Couple small things turnbuckles where to short no biggie

Running a DLE 55 RA the rear exhaust, to get the spinner to matched with the cowl the muffler hits the bottom of the box so I sanded a 45 degree angle at the bottom of the box used SWB stand off kit, pinned the box and fuel proofed with epoxy VERY QUICK,EASY DEPENDABLE SETUP


So all I changed is I used Robart Hinges, Smaller gas Tank, I changed some screws to socket heads instead of screw heads


It has foam wheels I will use them till there no good

Also it had a spring tail wheel but In stead of the spring I used a small rod kinda like a pilot rc tail wheel setup that was easy to do

I'm going to finish her up today, tune the motor and hopefully fly Friday

One more thing I found out the spinner bolt was to short still no biggie

I will update this thread when I get new info

Any questions feel free to ask?

If your on a budget I would look at these airframes if money was no issue I would probably get a composite

I was looking at this one: http://www.rcuniverse.com/market/item.cfm?itemId=984996 (Fly-Model Sbach300 30cc with C/F Wing Tube (ARF)) and put in a bid, but they didn't answer it.

I would email him off of rcu

I HAD THE 30cc Raven was nice I ended up selling it and buying this 50cc

The ravens where from nitroplanes but are the same manufacturer fly model rc

I have seen three of these things in my hand two 30cc ravens, and now my MX 2

WHERE THE CANOPY SITS ON THE FUSELAGE THERE IS,A VERY SMALL GAP BUT I HAVE HAD AN EG AIRCRAFT THAT HAD A WORSE GAP and got another canopy from them and it was even worse AND IT WAS TWCE THE PRICE $600 something bucks

Have had 2 pilot rc airframes 50cc

Had a gold wing 30cc mx2

Had seagulls model 540 and hangar 9 arfs


After buying 2 of these I would buy another if they had a 100cc airframe

I'm sure there can be issues with some of these somewhere but as we'll I don't mind small issue that I can fix for an airframe that was $380 bucks

When I have had some same issues on $700 pilot rc and EG aircraft

He was pretty fast response, always responded to every email WITHIN AN HOUR OR 2

It's the same planes off rcjetsworld.com

Cheaper of RCU I think


My opinion out of my 2 fly models without flying to me I was just as happy with my pilot rc extra's
And happier than my EG aircraft extra


Will give a flight report and video hopefully soon

Ok I got to get one flight in today the maiden flight

Very pleased I flew in 20 to 30mph wind pretty windy

She was flying awesome tracked perfect, one click of aileron trim, CG was right on although she balanced nose heavy on the recommended specs she was only a tad nose heavy probably slide the batteries back 1/2 inch back or even take one life out and just fly with one life instead of 2

All I can say right now is NICE

Plan to burn about 5 tanks Sunday hopefully

I emailed him directly and he sent me an invoice to my paypal and I paid the offer we both agreed on

If any of you guys get one or have comments you can post pics under my thread. All is welcome

Again I have no affiliation just putting some info on a cheaper alternative airframe besides the ones already out there

Ok. Probably won't get to fly today not sure yet so I'm going to give everything a once over

And took some more quick pics

Also using tech aero IBEC

Servos I'm using

Xq power 4020 on elevators
Align ds615 on ailerons
Xq power 3015 on throttle
Solar 772 on rudder

With 1-1/4 inch airwild arms on ailerons and elevators if you use those arms you will have to modify the elevator openings for the servo arm since they ride low on the servo those arms I like best I have had but they do ride low close to the case

I'm getting 40 degree deflection without stressing the servo endpoints

Kinda wish I would have got 1-1/2


H9 4 inch arm on rudder
