AXN Floater-Jet EPO with Motor (ARF) This model is one every pilot should own, performance is excellent and the quick, simple build will have you in the air in no time, when it comes to smiles for Dollars, the Floater-Jet can't be beaten, happy to be flown at speed or float around on minimal power, it's the perfect choice for beginners and experienced flyers.
Equipped with a high-kv motor, small propeller and a very smooth finish EPO foam surface (almost glossy) this plane can reach high speeds in a short amount of time, yet glide in gently to land thanks to it's forgiving stall and low wing loading.
An extremely easy plane to fly, ideal for beginners at half throttle and for experienced fliers, open the throttle for a noisy, fast eye opener flight.
Received my Floater PNF, assembled, binded transmitter. Everything good. Plugged everything into receiver. So far, so good.
Turned on transmitter, verified all sticks in neutral or down (throttle) position, and plugged in battery.
Immediately the motor begin to spin at high speed (with prop installed). Moving the throttle stick did nothing. After about ten seconds I unplugged the battery.
I checked all my receiver connections, which were right, turned the tx off and than on again, and tried the battery again. This time the motor didn't start on its own ** BUT, now it won't run at all. Nothing. No power to the motor.
The esc is making what seem like normal sounds, and power is getting to the servos.
Help, please! Did I get a bad motor? Is it an esc problem? Very frustrating, HK.
First verify that all connections are correct, Second see if the engine is not reversed in radio, Third if all correct and no work may be defective Speed **Control. The engine is more difficult to poblema.
Take this test Experience another Speed **Control and see the result, and also tests the engine, there you will get a correct answer to your poblema.
Qual a melhor bateria para o AXN, que melhor serve na fuselagem e dá* o melhor COG?
zippy 1800 ou 2200?
compact ou normal?
se for as compact tambem é* preciso cortar um pouco do EPO da fuselagem?
é* possivel montar o bixler landing ger set on the AXN?
I am very happy with this plane. Built was very easy, nothing much to do really. I prefer to fly a bit nose heavy so I go with 2200mah 3s. Tried also 1800mah 3s but it was a bit tail heavy for my taste. BTW plenty of power on stock motor. If you cut and re-hinge elevator and ailerons you get plenty of throw. Can do outside loop also. Rolls are a bit tricky thought, might need a little ruder to perform well. Make sure you are high enough before you try it. Oh and of course it can fly inverted fairly good.

Good value. Flies well. PROS: Quick assembly(glue incl.) Spare prop. Wings detach. Good wind penetration with 2200 mah. 25 plus min. flights on 3S 2200mah. Good control authority. Strong motor. Rugged. CONS: Sparse instructions. Must enlarge slot for 2200mah battery. Stiff control surfaces. Motor/prop are a bit noisy. Seemed tail heavy with 1300 mah battery. Above comments after 8 flights.

bloody good plane, slight problem during outside loop at full throttle at 120feet - battery came loose (plummeted to earth) -plane just floated down - NO DAMAGE . amazing !!! tie down battery if you want to try aerobatics

seems to be a good plane for fpv, all mods are done and it is cheaper than buying an ez at my local store even with shipping. the fuse is glued, that's the only bad point, it will be more difficult to install telemetry onboard, btw, it's a good deal and available, thanks HC

Aiuleron and elevator hinge lines are tight enough to strip the servo gears. You'll want to cut thru and re-hinge. A Zippy 3S*1300 installed on edge and shoved all the forward will just bring this into balance. A Zippy 3S*2200 (also installed on edge) as far aft as possible balances it a little nose heavy, but still fylable. Chamfer the aft end of the battery compartment top rails 45 degrees for easier battery installation and removal
