Want a plane that can take on anything? Born from the same stable as our best-selling SkyMule, the AVIOS Bush Mule is the sturdy workhorse of the sky. Taking rough terrain, water and snow in it's stride, this Plug and Fly model plane uses twin-powered motors to soar through the skies.
Touch down with precision by using the 90° barn door flaps to slow the plane's descent while landing. The AVIOS Bush Mule is fitted with broad wheels, similar to our popular Tundra models, to ensure a smooth landing even on rough terrain. Perfect for short take off and landings, this RC plane was designed for all conditions and all terrain.
Use the in-built cargo door in the tail to drop candy or launch a parachute during flight. You can also purchase floats to land your AVIOS Bush Mule in your local pond, pool or river. Packed with amazing features, the AVIOS Bush Mule is our most verstaile plane to date.

Flies very well, so ,long as the servos do their job. I had two failures so far. The nose wheel servo failed first. It is a cheap nylon geared product which is simply not robust enough for a nose wheel. I replaced that with metal geared servo. Then the elevator servo failed on a landing approach. The elevator fluttered and caused a heavy landing. Repaired the nose and fitted a new metal geared servo. Not an easy task because the servos are glued into the foam. I will fly again when the weather improves, hoping that I get no more failures.The wheels are rigid and cause hard landing unless an absolutely perfect touchdown. I replaced them with Dubro low impact wheels. The servos are junk. Touched the elevator while loading into my SUV and the servo gear was striped. I replaced all except the nose wheel. The flaps need to be restricted to 45 degrees or less unless you want dive brakes. The plane in too heavy for the wing area so keep the approach speed up. Forget about making a nose up landing particularly with the stock rich hard wheels.Hello, i have a question abput the Bush Mule. When do i need the reverse cable in the wing part ??Got 6 flights on it today. Very stable, flies really well. Mildly aerobatic, flaps work well, nice for slower landings. What can I say, HK you probably did not order enough on first run... Thanks, I like it, next the paratrooper drop.Packaging was good, no damage. No manual in box, but was able to download from HK. It's in the files section. Went together easily, I suggest you run the long screws used to hold tail on into the vertical fin prior to assembly. This will cut threads in the plastic allowing you to easily snug down the tail without stripping anything. Do not over tighten. Other issue to watch is the holes in the rudder control horn are too small for the snap link supplied and will need to be enlarged very slightly. No big deal. Warning... The CG picture in the manual must be a mistake. It shows CG as 50-60 mm from leading edge in front of wing. I have a Skymule and the CG is 50-60 mm from leading edge behind the leading edge. Setting CG in front of wing leading edge could make for a wild flight, I am going with the Skymule location. I really like the new landing gear, especially the much stronger nose gear and the bigger wheels. Lights look really cool and the cargo door is a bonus. Great job HK, I can't wait to fly it tommorrow.Nicely packaged, no damage. No manual in box, but was available online in files section. Went together smoothly. Only glue needed was to attach nose cone. Tip, when you attache the tail assemble with the long self tapping screws, good idea to screw them into the vert fin and cut the threads ahead of assembly, this allows you to easily assemble tail and snug it down easily. Do not over tighten and strip. Other small problem, rudder control horn holes are too small for the snap link supplied and you will have to enlarge slightly. Warning... CG location picture may be incorrect. It shows CG as 50 60 mm from leading edge in front of the wing. I have the Skymule which flies great and CG is located 50-60 mm from leading edge behind leading edge. This would appear to be a mistake on the picture, not the wording. I like they moved the landing gear to bottom of fuselage and beefed up the nose gear which was way too weak on the Skymule. The lights look great, flaps and cargo door are a bonus. Can't wait to get it in the air tomorrow. Nice work HK, considering I must have gotten on of the first off the line.Love it overall. Takes off in no time and very stable in the air.
Stripped two servos on the first day (nose wheel and elevator). Why provide servos if they are not metal gear?
Nose wheel takes a beating even on good landings. Servo saver or similar would be great.
