Fleet (6): Multiplex Easyglider
This is my 1st Multiplex plane, and it is a very simple build (except the battery compartment needed extending for my 3S LiPos, the rear balance ball bearing was a mistake, and the aileron covers were too proud of the wing underside).
The plane is pretty much stock (ie stock GB and 400 motor). I used a separate BEC as this plane uses 4 servos. One very nice touch is that the original box can be used for storage (with the tail sticking out the end).
Flying requires a somewhat different style vs other aileron planes, with a requirement to use rudder for good turns. The maiden was wrong because I did not pay too much attention to CoG (and no it won't fly with the stock ball bearing and LiPos way back in the battery comparment). More fool me. De-balled and balanced, it went very nicely on the 2nd maiden, except maybe it was a tad too windy for comfortable flight. But at least that meant a 2 feet landing run!
