The Vixen 2 F5J is a proven model with a exceptional pedigree! By popular demand, we now offer an X-tail, 4pc wing, 2pc fuse compact version of the highly successful V-tail original! The JW/Drela/DP wing section/planform is a good looking, great performing model that is perfect for F5J.

The redesigned wing has been changed to a 4-servo design, but if you wish, there is an outer-tip servo bay in the wing for 6 servos. The wing has factory installed LDS, ready to drop in servos!

The polyhedral wing, long tail moment, and efficient X-tail empennage yields a very stable, predictable flying model.

The signature Daryl Perkins inspired canopy on the Vixen 2 is a nice touch for the electro-gear giving you easy access to all your drivetrain! The DP-style canopy is pre-hinged at the factory as well.
