The AXN Floater jet is a perfect model for beginners. Its stable flight characteristics and forgiving handling make it the perfect platform for learning to fly. Unlike some models in its class the AXN Floater-jet comes with ailerons right out of the box. This is a critical control surface that all budding pilots should master.
Constructed from strong EPO foam with a high gloss finish the AXN Floater-Jet is capable of achieving high speeds in a small amount of space or gliding around gracefully on the breeze only needing throttle to gain altitude.
The predictable flight characteristics, low wing loading and pusher prop also make the AXN Floater-Jet an ideal platform for FPV. Using a smaller battery such as a 1600mAh to 1800mAh 3S1P will allow for additional payload in the front of the aircraft and make finding the correct CG without having to add additional tail weight easy.
The suggested motor and 5x5 propeller offer both performance and flight time based on your flying style. You will require a 2100kv Brushless outrunner, 4 x 9gram servos, a 1600mAh~2200mAh 3S1p Lipoly battery (depending on payload requirements) a 20Amp ESC and your own transmitter and receiver (Tx/Rx) to complete this model.
Proven time and time again the AXN Floater-Jet ticks all the right boxes for anyone looking to get in to the hobby as a beginner or intermediate pilots looking to get in to the exciting world of FPV flying.

Buy the kit with the motor as it has enough power for unlimited vertical. With this plane you can float around searching for thermals or fly mild pattern style aerobatics. No 3D. I now have over 60 twenty minute flights on mine and I would buy it again. I use a 6-4 or 6-4.5 prop with the stock motor and a 3 cell 2200mah battery. Mine does have a couple problems. Don't trust the factory glue joints on the arf. They are really poor! All three of them. Take the time to glue it together with epoxy you won't be sorry. The ailerons are undersized so mix in some rudder it helps improve the roll rate considerably. I Used brightly colored tape to reinforce the hinge points, wing underside and leading edge, and the bottom of the fuselage. Don't forget to use the thread locking compound and your good to go.Amongst the best learner planes out there at a bargain price. It will grow with you too as it handles well at slow floating speeds as well a medium speed acrobatics. Great to learn on as it is a pusher and you can hand launch and belly land. I started learning on this plane and was able to fly solo within 6 flights, as a complete beginner.Highly recommend this plane. Definitely get the cheapest model and click on the motor in the Accessories tab and order it too, You'll need a 2200 3s Lipo, four Hextronik 9g servos and 25A BEC3amp speed controller, all available through HK. If you dont have a radio get a basic Radio Tx/Rx, like Turnigy 4,5,6 or 8 channel. I started with 9x Before you build its a good idea to watch the xjet AXN build youtube vid. Can take off on short grass in the park or throw launch but watch the dive when you crank it on.Highly recommend this plane.

Simple to fly.Great plane for the novice and the more professional Pilotwhat a brilliant plane got this about a year ago, on the first flight it was a dream to fly until i somehow got confused and ended up nose diving into the floor snapping the plane in half, but within half an hour it was glued back together and still flys perfect to this day, it was easy to put together and for a first time build it took me quite a while (2hours) but in the end it turned out fine just remember the loctite or you will loose some screws in flight like me.nice plane, this is my first plane and it was no problem to me to build it and get it in the air. Its also no Problem to repair the foam with some glue or hot water.
I like to call this a perfect beginner plane, because its cheap repairable and easy to fly. And it has enough space for fpv equip and at least 20 min flight time.Had this plane 2 months now being a beginner i have already crashed alot but this plane is extremely durable and easily glues back together, i used the 11.1v 2200mAh x-thin zippy batteries(PRODUCT ID: Z22003S-25-X) which fit perfectly without having to remove any foam from the battery compartment, this battery gives extremely long run times in excess of 30mins and the motor has plenty of power with the 5x5 supplied prop, overall i would highly recommend this to any beginner and experienced RC pilotBrilliant model to fly. Great fun and has really good performance at both fast and slow speeds. Was half expecting the wings to snap at one point but it stood up really well.
