Please let us know if you find one. That MXS would look bitchin' if it had a nice pilot.

I keep seeing this ad for pilots but I can't remember if it's here or model aviation. I'll pay more attention and copy the link next time I see it.


BTW, yours looks like it's a nice, clean build.

The MXS is probably the most demanding of the 48s on servos. I'm currently testing a set of the new ProModeler DS85 servos, with a DS100 on the elevator. All of these will simply drop in to the existing holes with no modification. So, I'm flying the exact set up that will go on my MXS (when available).

Tests have gone exceptionally well and I'm delighted with the performance. As soon as the servos go in production, I hope to update my MXS. Certainly, we will have video.

I put Hitec HM 5070 servos in mine (including elevator). But, I'm also flying on 3S and attempting to fly it more scale. I say attempting because this thing is insane and capable of so many crazy things that it's hard not to unleash the beast!

Still haven't put decals on. My plan is to due something different than the stock decals.

Regarding pilot/cockpit. I may end up making my own. I remember a set up I custom made when i first got in to the hobby as a kid. I made the body out of a block of balsa, painted a face/hair/helmet on a ping pong ball and put it all together. Super light

I may do that on the MXS. make cockpit panels out of 1/32 or 1/64 balsa, then craft a pilot using balsa/ping pong ball.

I like MXS's decal scheme, but I prefer to use decals made from 3M High Performance Vinyl. I took the decal sheet to my local graphics store and had them duplicated.

Exactly, otherwise you end up with a dirty buildup around the stock decals that does not want to come off
