This model is hot! An EPO 1.4m 3D head-turning machine; this large scale model will surely draw a crowd at any club and demand full respect amongst 3D pilots the world over.
The distinctive and scale scheme is ideal for orientation. The MX2 is large for an EPO model and it looks nearly twice the size once its in the air. Its a blast to fly and is very 3D capable!
The powerful, pre-installed 36-48 motor spinning that large & scale 3 blade prop gives plenty of thrust for the wildest of maneouvers, and the pre-installed servos are certainly up to the job. Generous size control surfaces combined with light weight ensure this is a true performer as well as a head turner. Practical as well as easy on the eye, the wings are detachable for easy transportation, a large canopy ensures easy access to Lipoly tray, wing bolts and so on.
Got my MX2 couple days ago. Wery beautyful plane. Very fast. looks pretty big. completed with 19grams (!!!) servos on rudder and elevator. but the elevator servo is soooo slow, better change it before you make your first flight.
Tried to fly with 3S lipoly - not bad but not for aerobatic.
Mount your canoopy well or you will definately loose it)))
Every time I take my MX2 up the canopy keeps coming off! I have put 2 magnets at the front of the canopy and 2 at the back and it still comes off. The only way i can get it to stay on is with duck tape, but this ruins the paint. Any suggestions???
moi j'ai fait comme indiqué* sur la notice de montage,j'ai fait une ouverture d'air sous le fuselage et cela suffit(un trou d'environ 40 mm de diametre au niveau du servo de profondeur)
bon vol a toi
I have a 35C 4S Battery ... somehow squeaky battery starts beeping me right when I take off ..
I have to fly half gas to not destroy the battery ...
I bought a 65C and I want to connect it .. Is it supposed to be suitable for this engine power?
And Can I want connect a battery of 5S? I saw the engine data registered on the site and have the option to connect 3S-5S ...
I'd love to get an answer
we are unable to answer your question without knowing the mah rating of your battery. To help you all I can do is give you this:
mah x battery C = max continuous current.
Hopefully you can use the formula to answer your question
je viens de regarder ta video et je suis a peu pres sur depouvoir te dire que ton avion est centré* beaucoup trop arriere*la notice etant fausse.
refait un essai en centrant ton avion a max 90 mm du bord d'attaque et suivant ta faç*on de piloter c'est toi qui dé*cidera de reculer ou non ton centrage vers l'arriere.
voila j'espere que cette ré*ponse te conviens et STP refait une vidé*o de ton prochain vol tu va voir le changement.
bon vol et a bientot
merci paptmitch pour ta rapide reponse!! alors, le probleme c'est que sur la video , la batterie etait tout a fait devant , quasiment collé*e au pare feu moteur. Donc, je me suis fait un appareil pour poser l avion en bascule pour mesurer le CG, et avec la batterie ainsi devant comme sur la video, il est a 9cm des bords d attaque.
si je mets la batteries comme sur mon 1ere vol,soit la batterie juste devant le carbone de renfort d aile, il est a 11cm. donc, je suppose qu'au premier coup jt trop arriere, et au second trop avant !! qu'en penses tu ? Aussi, est ce que ,comme j ai une aile legerement pas droite mais un peu arrondi vers le bas, cela peut creer un vol aussi caotique? merci encore, j attends ton avis .....
normalement a 9cm du bord d'attaque il devrait voler correctement,eventuellement tu peux redeplacer ta batterie et aller vers 95mm si tu veux mais sur ta video on as l'impression que tu manque de vitesse ,ton avion est constament en dé*ccrochage. a tu changé* quelque chose au niveau de la propulsion d'origine?
What is about connectors if i want put a 2600MAh battery with 5,5mm bullet connectors? If i remember good ESC have yellow XT60 connector.
Which plug i must change?
And i didnt found red 5,5plug in the wires/plugs menu.
Hi all, was wondering about correct tail wheel hookup on mx2 3d? I've tried to connect wires from tail wheel to rudder horn...doesn't work as it binds. wires are too long for the actual tail wheel connect points. Also the tailwheel & rudder horn plastic piece i connect with 4 small screws on each side? is this right because it seems very week in the foam area at bottom of rudder? any suggestions?
I bent small V's in each of the wires to make them shorter. It also allows you to adjust the length of each by adjusting how wide the v is. You should have 4 screws that are long enough to go from the servo horn through the tail and into the backer plate on the other side. The way you have it set up it probably wont make it off the ground without the servo horn popping off.
hi guys... need some little details here about servos... I need proper replacement servo for the elevators... the one I have is not fast enough... please advise which would be the best,,, I got this as a gift from a friend who has had a previously misshap with the mx2 and he had the rudder servo changed but he didn't get the proper one... please advise as I really want to get her in the air
Cut the Red Cable from the ESC RX plug and put a small BEC
with 2-3 S 1000mAh Batterie on your RX. The weight do not make a real different. Your Electronics are Save and your Flight Batterie is just for flying.
I fly this MX2 with 4S 4000mAh - 14x8 2 blade & GoPro Cam, up to 4 min.
So much Power and Fun with this Setup.
4S 4000mAh - 12x6 2 blade over 6 min. but just for chilling
13-14x7 2 blade should be a good choice for this plane.
The ESC didnt heat up and i just changed ELEV. & RUDD. Servos with Digi Standards.
Im just new on RC Planes. Pls. advise the voltage rating of 2200mAh 4s Lipoly Battery as required for MX2 Blue 3D 1400mm EPO (PNF. Thanks.... Jerry
2 thumbs up!
built pretty good needed another horn in bottom of vert stab dosnt have one ...and 70 amp speed controller is a topfire? wont slow down when battery at low voltage.. need to time flights carefully although i suspect this is due to it not being programed from factory havnt found any info on how to yet but some one will know how.. flys very well hovers half throttle fitted a 4 cell nano 2200 in front on wing tube cg spot on at this fits spot on. snaps and knife edges very well

hi sorry i have to put you all down on this one. i ordered this plane...................yes and waited almost a month for it. once i received it, yes i liked every little bit of it. i did all necessary ground checks. charged up my lipo. 4s 2640 ZIPPY. went out and gave it a go. on the ground very very nice. Took off, made a slight turn to the left and what do you know, next thing the plane just loses control, ends up in a tree with a broken engin mount, broken wing and broken landing gear......hhmmmm, what could it be. So i got it out the tree and what do i notice..... no damage to the rudder or the aileron..but why.... they both came of inflight due to bad fitting from HK. so now you tell me, i have been flying for a few years now and i have planes 4 times the size of this thing..... anyway. so i go and reair the wing and replace all the cheap hinges they installed, repaired the stupidly designed engine mount. wow what do you know all fixed. connect my lipo and ready to fly.Now the esc dead and my futaba r617 dead thanks to this ......... plane. so i buy a new 80A esc, put in a new rx, and wow what a nice flight........but. 4min of flying and esc cutts due to over heating. so what a waist of money and time. SO except for this plane looking all nice.....it's not. not even the prop is right size for that motor.......or i was the one to get the DUD. so not woth sending back bec

I replace the prop by 3-blade 11-6 MA and DB spinner (little longer than factory prop) and the fin/tail servo by micro HK939MG, because original servo fail in the second flight (taxing in grass runaway). I'm using 4cell 30-40C 2200 battery and provide hovering power for 6-7 minutes. Only cons: elevator needs lot of expo and dual rate, canopy magnet is weak, CG is "tricky" and wings can be damaged during removal. These are "cons" that I can handle with simples mod's. This is a real WINNER and show stopper for less than $120!!!
When unboxing this plane i was suprised how quick it went together. The only glue that was needed was to glue the exaust in and canopy glass after installation of your pilot.A couple of mods have to be made to insure a perfect flight characteristics,1/ motor mount is slightly off which make the motor pull to one side when throttling up a piece of 1mm carbon fiber under the shorter leg should bring it back level. 2/ Fire wall may be slightly loose a bit of glue should sort this out.3/ check all the hinges as you might find that some of them are loose just reglue and youre ready to fly.Replacement prop would be 12"x6" three blade.

This is not a review per se, but a request for suggestions on the wing/cf tube/fuselage/wing mounting. Everything appeared easy and straight forward. However, the carbon fiber tube would not go all the way through the wings. And I cannot pull the wings out of the cf tube, thereafter.
My option, the best that I could see, is to pull one wing out enough so I can hacksaw the cf tube. Then I can use a ferrule tube joint. The wings will win then be easily removable. The challenge is to pull one wing out. I hope the tube is not glued into the wing. Otherwise, a major wing surgery.
Looking for better ideas,

A really capable model but be sure to keep the batteries up to it. We suggest a 2650mAh, but you can get away with a 2200mAh high C-rate pack for better 3D. This model is pretty big, but looks like an 80inch when flying. An awesome model and a real keeper. (Actually the picture to the left is BEN holding the same model with the V1 colour scheme!) Big isn't it!?
