This is such a heart racing airframe. I often find myself running it at above half throttle a majority of the time. The only time I drop it below half throttle is to harrier around for a bit.

MXS ordered now need advice

I had the extra exp 48 inch before with the power combo from ef.
Can I use the same? I was flying 4s with 12x6 prop...is this the right setup? Any recommendations?
Ordered the plane on Monday, but still hasn't shipped....not sure what the hold up is.

Yup! 2814-820 and a 12x6 on 4s sounds like the right setup

On the shipping... maybe give them a call?

I paid for something on Monday, and I didn't think it shipped, but then I received it today. They must have been busy on Monday and forgot to update the status.

Just received an email that it shipped.
Good to know I have the correct setup. My extra was awesome. Can't wait to get the mxs in the air. The extra was my first 3d plane, and it made me look like I had been flying 3d for years. I skipped the foamy stage and I don't regret it.

Congratulations. The 48" MXS is a very close 2nd favorite of mine behind the 64". In some ways, like pitch authority, I love the 48" MXS a little more. It is an awesome plane, and I learned to harrier on it.

2820 motrolfly with the wind if your choice to match your battery and prop selection. The motrolfly can is a tad long and the spinner gap will be a little wide with this motor. It doesnt bother me as I dont see the gap when im flying. But power is fantastic
As always, you will never go wrong with the recommended power system from Extreme Flight.

Well, in their defense... they do sell like hotcakes.
They generally get stock of motors and ESC's every 3-4 weeks though, it seems.
Sign up for the back in stock notification and jump all over it when you get the email, unless you need to get something "right now."

Got mine about 2 weeks ago and maidened it with the Torque 900kv and a ThunderBird 54 on 3s. It was very sluggish with the 12x6. I went with this setup due to the fact of funds and it was what I had at the time. I switched the esc to a CC Ice lite 50 amp and propped up to a 13x6.5 for 3s. Gonna try that first then prop down to a 12x6 for a 4s pack. Any suggestions and a new motor is out for now.
