St Model Fox ?

Hi guys,
I'm looking at buying the St Model Fox can anyone give me any feedback on what this glider is like to fly, and can you slope with it.

Cheers Ron.

Slope-no problems

I dont have the st model fox,but l have the st model dg1000 and the st model asw 28, and l thermal and slope both of them.For Slope only, l add ballast to the nose area on both, if the wind is more than 15 knots.Less wind than 15 knots,there is no need to add ballast.Both fly really well,and they are good to, because l use the receiver in another model as well-my 2.5 metre fibreglass ASW 28.You can also elect to use the throttle trim up so the prop doesnt spin if by mistake you raise the throttle gimbal-whilst flying on slope that is, with a decent breeze.If there is minimal wind at the slope,you can power up to flying height and search for lift as well.I was looking at the fox as well,model flight still have the asw 28 and dg 1000,they have the fox,in stock,for $219,road freight-toll transport, from south aust to melbourne-$15.Have fun,damo

Thanks Damian for your feedback, i have orded the Fox pnp through Revmax hobbies in Coffs Harbour and i'm looking forward to getting it set up and in the air. I'm getting a bit tired of my Easystar even though it has a brushless set up, i want something with ailerons to better my skills.

The fox will fly well off the slope-

Ron,sounds good,the transmitters and receivers work well,l have had no problems with mine at all,and that was a big factor in buying my two st models.The lightness of these gliders sets them apart from others,and the asw 28 l flew off charman road,mentone,vic in a 7-8 knot southerly breeze ,WITHOUT POWER.Get down there when you get the fox,works best in a southerly wind-straight on to the slope,land on the beach,you will most likely see me there flying my st model dg 1000 or ASW 28-good fun.damo

Ive heard about planes getting lost in the bushes, landing on Beach Rd and also hitting houses at Charman Rd. Ronstar is your video on YouTube? There was talk some time ago about the council banning R/C at this site so its best to land on the beach. Totally off topic sorry.

Land on the beach only-not on top.......

I made my point clear earlier,l only fly these at Mentone- ST MODEL ASW 28, ST MODEL DG 1000.The only exception was my semiscale Bard-2 metre,and thats fast, but is stable, and flaps have been fitted, to slow the landing on the beach even more.The dg 1000 and ASW 28 are FOAM,not glass,and they both weigh under 700 grams.End of discussion.......................................D amo............................................... ...............................................

A mate in Bris just bought a ST Fox and I got the job of setting it up and doing its initial flights. Once I got the cog worked out (battery quite forward) it was a dream fly, tho the motor is a little underdone. Glided like it was on rails, just keep the speed up ! A good buy!
