Mesa AZ, it's a dry heat!

Solius


Looks great, but the earliest arrival according to both Horizon and Great Planes is the end of April, which although it is fast approaching, I do not have a great deal of confidence in those forecasts, witness the Carbon Cub and ASK-21 situation.

I will have one as soon as the shop where I work gets them in, looking forward to seeing it, but not holding my breath! I love the MPX quality and attention to detail, I have flown their stuff for years and love it.

Curious why they chose to not provide flaps. It's a bit smaller than the Cularis, which had flaps.
I've been looking at this modelmover in the UK ( www.electricwingman.com ) for a while now.

The video makes it look like its flown under power all the time. Anyone flown one with the power off? Does it thermal well?

The one at our club seems to thermal very well with power off. I suppose that's a bit difficult to video thought!

It does fly a lot faster than the Radian series or the Easy Glider but can hold a tight turn very well in a thermal, but even with out power it can move between thermals a brisk pace.
