I'll predict that if the new EZ packs neatly back into it's box it will become the traveling RC plane of choice. What's an RCer without his plane?

A back in the box EZ II is a big selling point for me.

You seem to be lacking in empathy. Glue the stab on if you don't need to pack it away in its box. Meanwhile, try to understand that being able to store plans in their original box is very useful for some people. Also, understand that your car might be bigger than a lot of other people's.

Seems like a waste to me plus the added weight.
Also how many planes are out there that do this?
My first model which fitted in its original box, was the Graupner CHILI from 1990. It is great when the model can be stored in the box and it also fits perfectly on the hatrest of my Honda Civic.

Other models which fit in their boxes are the Graupner Elekro Rookie and the Elektro Rookie QR. Boxes can be stacked on top of each other during storage and transport.

OUT HERE IN KANSAS
I have a one ton pickup truck. LONG BET
A 2002 Buick Park Ave. WITH LARGE TRUNK
WIDE OPEN SPACE to fly ALMOST , NOT A TREE IN SIGHT.
I glue the wings in, set everything up. and go fly. OOOPPPS . Still learning after 40 years
Love my org. EasyStar. Have an Bixler/sky surfer in the hanger.
Looking forward to the new EasyStar II. I know one thing for sure, The ES has a
much stronger body and wings then the SS .
So, should be a great plane for us student pilots.

Re the tailplane.............

and I never, ever thought I would hear myself say this but..........

I agree with Gerry____ ............

For lots and lots of people - especially those living in countries where a 2 litre (122 cu in) car engine is considered large, and petrol is over $8 / US gallon - the removable tailplane means being able to pack it in a regular rectangular box for ease of storage and transportation.

Multiplex has yet to build a plane that I don't want. The original Easy Star is a masterpiece. This seems to improve on the original in some nice ways.

But I'll bet that one not-so-nice place it will improve upon the original will be in the price....from MPX's point of view!!!!

But I've got to a point in my life where if I really want something, then I recognise that I will have to pay - so I'm saving up already!!!

Yes, it's a great plane. Will the new one be flyable in a RET configuration, does anyone think?

Of course. Nothing has changed here. The ailerons are just an option.

Our "big" car is a VW Golf. We've traveled with 4 adults + luggage for a week. A good plane I can transport in its box is something I've wanted for a while now. I was highly disappointed when I had to glue on the tail for the E*.
