Looks like another plane I'll need.
Reminds me of the FIXX without the turned up wingtips.

Can anyone help me get on in the States?
Sure it will be a couple years before they make it across the Pacific.

That sure is a stylish looking wing.
I may get one to slope soar.

Thanks for the pictures.

What ever happened to the Fixx. I had one and loved it. After I added some strength to the wing tips it flew well. I guess maybe its demise was because it was not as sturdy as an EPP wing.

fixx less

Hey all. I saw this on the Multiplex web site a few weeks ago and was immediately reminded of the old Fixx but without the fixless body!

I loved the Fixx, I had two and have one more left in my "hobby hell hole". I loved the plane but the Zfoam was not really fixx able and the film that was molded into the material and held the elevons was infamous for peeling off and was not really repairable as hinges could not be glued in well.

In today's world of ultra mini outrunners and Lipos, the Fixx would be a blast!

Multiplex has made a sharp looking airplane with some awsome options to make the plane fit in a backpack . .for those of you that travel you know how killer this becomes as you can fly on the road! Elevapor is what Zfoam should have been! It will provide a very robust structure that is repairable.

If this is priced in the 40-50 buck range, this could be a contender!

Wingspan is 1245mm/49" & the pre order price in the UK is 49.99.

Check out some extra pics here, inc the motor/driveshaft/folding prop setup.

Hmmm,
So it's a good size
The fins are removable
It folds in half, so it can be thrown in a backpack
It has a detatchable motor
A folding prop
It's made from quality foam
It looks awesome
And it's reasonably priced

That's not enough Mr Multiplex.....we want more.
