Parkzone ArtiZan with AS3X Aerobatic's Plane

Hi all, 2014 and the first new release from Parkzone is the ArtiZan and yet again with the generosity of OMP Modleflight Adelaide, Mike has given me the ArtiZan to review and maiden, so you get an early look at this new beauty from Parkzone. "It's an AS3X equipped park flyer that will enable you to explore Aerobatics" is what it says on the box and i hope to maiden real soon to just see how it does fly. For now sit back and check out the new ArtiZan

cheers chuck











The compact ArtiZan™ park flyer is a nimble, grab-and-go sport plane that’s perfect for exploring aerobatics. The Bind-N-Fly® version comes equipped with a Spektrum™ receiver featuring a built-in AS3X® (Artificial Stabilization – 3aXis) system.

The AS3X system works behind the scenes to counter the effects of wind and turbulence using a combination 3-axis sensing and exclusive flight control software. The result is a locked-in feel that lets you focus more on the fun of flying and less on fighting the wind.

You can adjust the amount of stability the AS3X system provides or turn it off completely, but even experienced pilots will find flying with it on feels completely natural. There is no delay in control response or limits on the control throws. You will simply feel like you’re flying an expertly tuned model that goes right where you point it.

It’s this advanced technology, along with the model’s light wing loading, that gives sport pilots a superb balance of slow speed stability and high-speed agility. Anyone with experience flying a ParkZone warbird or civilian scale model will feel right at home the first time on the controls.

Interesting that they'd release something so similar to the VisionAire...

I thought that when i first saw it too BUT! it is nothing like the VisionAire, it is an Aerobatic plane more like a Parkzone size Splendore The AS3X does not have any other setting but Sport!

this plane is aimed right at the Parkzone buyer and flys as easy as the T-28 but much better, so you want to explore Aerobatic's this is the Parkzone plane for you

cheers chuck

The ArtiZan is not a 3D plane. Completely different flying experience from the Visionaire. This is a pure sport plane. The target was to be very similar to the T-28 but a little more capable in aerobatics. The final result probably delivers a little more aerobatic capability than originally intended, but it's still a sweet-flying bird.

Looks interesting, if it balances and flies well with a 2200mAh crammed in there even better!

The way it looks is nice and the niche it is trying to fill needs something new, but most people really turn up the control surfaces on the PZ T-28 and turn it into a fun flyer more that a scale warbird, that is why it is so loved but....

Would like to see something like this with the tricycle wheel setup, that is something I really like about my PZ T-28 and I wouldn't give it up unless its replacement has them, I am trying a Hobbico Millenium Master to that affect now, a little smaller but more a sport flyer.
Try a reno version of a P39, that could get my cash, powered with the BL15 motor and the prop from the PZ Extra 300, yeah!

And flaps would be a big bonus
Not saying that this is not nice but the first thing I notice is another tail dragger

I DONT like tail draggers as well. All my tail draggers nose over to much . I have a splendor in the box and hope that's not going to nose over as easy as the others.

The Splendor does not nose over, my good friend has one and it is a really nice model, flies really well and has great ground handling on grass and pavement and its huge for a foamy

I'd been thinking that Chuck's been low-profile recently, and wondering when we'd hear from him..........

Looking forward to the maiden vid!

For the data-obsessed, can you tell us the wing-loading and wing-cube-loading?

I fly the Flyzone Acro Wot MkII and I see this plane as being very similar. If it flies anywhere near a good as the Acro Wot, HH will have a winner on its hands. I may get one when they become available and do a comparison between it and the Acro Wot.
