I just built the first printed kit last night, and kits will be in production and for sale next week. The color scheme is based on my airbrushed MX2 that I flew at ETOC this year. Take a look!

In the photo of your competition version of this model in the initial post on this thread, what are the two gray rectangle-shaped things on the leading edges near the wing tips?

Those are not on the leading edge, they are attached underneath the aileron control surfaces and scoop forward. There is a lot of science behind it that I am not qualified or smart enough to explain... I prefer the s3114 servos in most of my indoor planes

I've never seen a truss framework on just the ailerons like that.

I'm not talking about the aileron spades, but the gray-colored things. See my pic. Actually, it looks like it's something that locks the aileron counter-balance to the wing for transport. Sorry, I thought it was some weird aerodynamic device

thanks for the close up- it appears to be some sort of airbrake maybe... either way, I would not worry about it as it was not in the kit nor referenced in the directions.

You are correct. It is for holding the aileron during transport.

As Mike said... just for transport! Nothing funny going on there... I just forgot to take them off before the picture. Oops.

Mike, I did get the airplane... sorry, just remembered I never got back to you!

help please, Mamo vpp with mx2

Hey guys
I recently built an mx-2 with the mamo vpp and the Hacker A20-34S. I started with 80% pitch with 80% throttle max on my Dx6i for standard flight. But the motor ripped from the fuse when i pulled into the vertical with half throttle input, I used tape and thin ca for mounting.
Is this programming to powerful?
Thanks

You shouldn't have any problem with that, I run 100% throttle on an A20-34S on 3S with no problem. Can you post pictures of how you mounted your motor?

You need the diagonal gussets to "box in" the nose and attach to the 45 degree legs of the mount. The tripled-up foam doesn't really do the trick. What kind of tape did you use? Normally the fiber-reinforced tape is the best bet and it should never be able to break like that.
