looking forward to this machine.
Well Shaun designed it so we know it will be a great 3der. But to your point I'm thinking it will be a great iMAC and pattern type plane as well.

When will this be available in the UK? I'm so unbelievably excited! I love the fat fuse on that, makes it look meaty

So guys by looking at the pics this appears to be a push-pull system which is great! Pull-pull is nice but hard to get right so good to see the push-pull This plane also appears to have vortex generators at both the wingtips and the insides like the Addy X and Bandit! With that massive wing area, vortex generators, light weight and large size, my guess is that this plane will be SUPER stable. As for elevator stab and rudder stab, looks airfoiled to me which is great! Looking at the hinges, the ailerons look factory-done with hinges all inside similar to the Bandit! Canopy appears to strap on with magnets. There seems to be a carbon spinner which I assume is a PA one that will be an optional extra (could be the MX one). Servo arms also look like the optional ones you see on the Addy X and Extra MX. I wonder if these will be the same arms? Pics show coloured wheel pants but my guess is that carbon ones will be an optional extra (possibly same as the MX ones also) I also assume PA wing bags will be available! Lastly, I've manged to deduce that the undersides of the wings will likely be clear like the Bandit's so you can install the vortex generators easily and use a pin to open the slots on the non-clear top side! Prop looks wooden; my guess is the Vox 15x7 or 15x8 like the Extra MX iPA setup uses. I'll report back here if I can find anything else

Can this be run of one 6s 2200 or does it have to be two 3S packs? Thanks!

The New 57" KMX - our summer 2012 release
Come see it in person at the Toledo show this weekend! MORE UPDATES WILL BE POSTED AS SOON AS MORE INFO COMES!!!!

This plane is all about dedication to perfection – we have taken an already great design –the Katana MD – increased its size and then refined it to a point of absolute harmony in the air.
Naturally we did a lot more than just increasing the Katana MD size - The Katana MX features a complete new aerodynamic design with new custom made airfoils and while it is based on the Katana MD, it has been taken into a whole new level.
It is all about how it flies. After thousands of Katana MDs flown out there, there is no need to talk about what a great flying model it is. If you loved the Katana MD, we can say with certainty - you are going to fall in love again!
Being built using finest grade material, all cut by state-of-the-art laser and CNC machines and utilizing the new generation FiberFusion® building techniques, the KMX is incredibly lightweight and rigid.
Despite its wingspan being 1” smaller than the Extra MX, it is actually larger than the Extra MX and has a look and feel of a large plane at the flying field.
Powered by PA Thrust 50 motor and PA Quantum 70 Pro ESC with a switching BEC makes the KMX extremely responsive, providing absolute control and extreme performance.
Unlike other models in this size category, the KMX is powered by two standard 2200mAh 11.1V packs, so you don’t need to get a new charger or buy a battery that is dedicated to only one model in your hangar. This iPAs package has proven to be the most powerful yet most economical set up possible.
Want to find out more? visit our booth at the Toledo show this weekend to see it in person or keep checking this post over the next few days as we will upload photos specifications and more information .

Holy sh$t! It looks huge in comparison to Shaun posing in the pix.

Are you sure it's a 57" and not a 75"? Lol.

Dan, looking forward to watching your flying videos.

Cheers

RR
