RJ Gritter MX3 Mini by Fancyfoam


RJ sent me this awhile back but I put it off until the release of the full size. Now it is out. I have been flying mine for a while now and really like it. I let a friend take it and now I have to build a new one.
For now it is only available in white and all kits are milled to save weight. The build is real easy and the power to weight is excellent.
We should have video out soon. Likely RJ and Devin will have theirs at E-Fest.

Below I have added the basic build pictures. Let me know if you need more information. Sorry for the lack of formal instructions.
CG should start at 5.75" from the nose. After you fly it you can decide if you want to move it back a little more.
Start with the control throw at 50% and 50% expo. It is a small plane and it will be extremely agile.

Guys, this is an especially fun little airplane. It is a magic size and is a perfect light, floaty airplane that rolls surprisingly fast! It's especially fun and easy to fly in small indoor areas. Devin and I flew our prototypes constantly a couple years ago and we're excited to build a couple of new ones now.

It's ideal for the RimFire 200 motor, 2S 180mAh batteries and 3g servos on the tail.

Here's a video of Devin flying his original Mini MX3:

Enjoy!

I remember flying it after ETOC. Flys like a bigger foamy and is very fun to play around with.
Hope you guys enjoy the plane!

Started my mini tonight. It's coming along really good.


The airframe weight all framed up with elevator and aileron bracing including push rod linkages for ailerons and ball links and pull pull horns for the tail. So literally everything other than the electronics is 25.4g on my kit.

Roll rate is very good not quite what we get out of the big one with massive Counterbalances but still fast.

Will this be available printed or just white? If printed, what scheme should we expect to see?
