BTW it is finished!

Now I just need some nice weather to maiden.
Oh nice your we're using the same as I am. I was conserned about the magnets coming undone since it seems like the biggest problem when over heated. I disassembled mine and everything looked great started to add some extra expoy but gave up. Now I just keep an eye on the temps.

You MXS looks killer bro, can't wait to here your first pulls on her. Wow thats a nasty battery hope your gonna use a 13x6.5?

Also I'm not using a spinner since I want the best air flow to the motor.

Yep a 13x6.5 is fitted. I might do some static tests tomorrow before I get it in the air.

Maiden videos? Oh you wanna watch me set the CoG and trim the surfaces? . Usually nac films my flights but I'm sure he'll be keen to maiden his own MXS. We'll see what happens. The weather forecast for the weekend is not fantastic, but we might get a chance to fly them in decent conditions.

Spinner? I've got one fitted. It's a high tech brushed aluminium spinner . I'm pushing my motor pretty hard so I'd rather get plenty of airflow into the front of the motor. FWIW I've never bothered to fit a spinner to any of my balsa planes. I'm just not that fussed about how they look.

So how is this supposed to fly compared to the edge and extra.

I read more pitch authority.

Double tapered wing like an extra so it would snap a little better like an extra, but not be as strong in high alpha as the edge?

Please fill me in

Jim, have a look at the video:
http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1307331

Slightly shorter coupled than the Edge and Extra so pitch rate is just a bit more aggressive. Very stable in high alpha, just like the Edge and Extra, great knife edge and insane tumbles and other gyroscopic maneuvers. In short, A LOT OF FUN!
