I have the ADX but not the bandit.
I have many other 3d planes, edges, Extra, Yak etc and I can say this.

The ADX is easy to fly hands down, comfortable and docile down on the deck.

What I find it hard to perform is KE spins and blenders take a lot of time to work out how to get the ADX to enter and stay in these types of spins.

Everything else the ADX is super great to fly and tough as well. I've cartwheeled mine once and it was very little effort to restore back to original even without a new motor box.
See the very end of this video.

Do the wheel pants serve a non-cosmetic purpose?


If not, I'd just as soon leave them off to save the weight and complexity. The field where I fly is so rough you'd swear there's been recent combat, so anything that covers the wheels and makes them less likely to climb over obstacles is a disadvantage.

Aerodynamic efficiency perhaps? Pants are presumably more slippery in the air than the wheel they cover, but then they're a lot larger as well and that bottom opening in which the wheel sits must surely contribute significantly to drag?

A side-force generator of sorts?

Thanks for all input!

Get yourself some 2.5" Du-bro leightweightwheels, basically the PA wheels are copied of these but smaller. The 2.5" rolls much better and IMO is better scaled to the rest of the plane, the 1.8" that PA supply are to small IMO. You could also spring load your wheel pants like I have, if you go back a few pages you'll find a post by me showing a technique that allows your wheel pants to take some hits without damage.

Thanks Luke. I frequently like to use bigger wheels, and I was definitely going to use your spring-loaded mod to mount the pants - assuming they're there for more than just looks?

I must admit, I do love it when I open the "My RCGroups" tab and see you or Dan has posted in all the PA threads- Almost always, that means there is a new vid, promotion, sale, or new product.

Pleasant treat this mornin, thanks!

Excellent flying!

Very nice MW - some lovely planes and great flying on show

The AMR have a feeling it didn't quite like its landing seemed to come down a little harder than expected??

No... actually it just bounced up and flew 3 feet then landed just fine. It didn't hit hard. Might have looked that way though...
