SIX MONTHS since I last went flying but now back into it again, went to the field with the usual car full and of course the AXN. Local flyers were giving me some cheek about the Multiplex look alike and the bixler copy. Until that is they saw the AXN doing unlimited vertical and long flights of soaring. two 2200 3 cells lasted the morning flying and what fun, I had forgotten what a joy it is to fly this plane. Definitely changed a few opinions on the field

I assure you this can roll pretty fast if using both ailerons and rudder into the same direction


I did the cut wings to a HawkSky to turn it into a "HawkFighter"

A guy at my work just got one and left the wings alone. Came down hard on the wing and it sprung when it hit. Pretty cool.

Get a BMI Arrow 1400 or 1500. Glides better anyway, and then you have the Cloudfighter for when relaxing just doesn't cut it.

IMO -not worth it in the CF - HXT-900's are just fine.
