The big question is whether it is EPS (polystyrene) or EPO (polypropylene), last time I checked this plane was EPS which isn't worth considering in my opinion. And yes, I realize it says EPO, but that's just the vendor being optimistic I think.

Cheers,

Sander.

Which motors will you use ??

I'm looking for a link with a good motor which can be easily mounted on this plane.

but isn't EPO worst than EPS ? thats what i have read time ago,

EPP is the best,
EPS very similar to EPP
EPO a bit more weak than any of the above

i am wrong?

EPS is the worst, i thought, it's like packing foam.

Could be wrong tho.


Cheers, kev.

Yes, you are wrong

EPP = expanded polypropylene, soft, flexible, easy to glue
EPS = expanded polystyrene, the stuff they use for packing, brittle
EPO = mix of the above, retains most of the qualities of EPP

EPS is a waste of money in my opinion...
I just hope this plane can carry some "extra payload" and still fly good.

Alright, BEV just took my order for two of these as well, with specific instructions not to ship if it is EPS, we'll see what happens. Added a FY-20A II as well, figured I'd give that a try, if that doesn't work satisfactionary I'll slap in an Atto v1.9 and be done with it

Cheers,

Sander.

I mean "push" the axis to the other away
I did it one time, it was very hard because it was "crimp"... but it wasn't a Turnigy... so disreguard
