A fun low-wing aerobatic plane with all servo's, esc and motor pre-installed. You only need to include your own receiver to have this plane ready to fly.
The Focus400 is a great way to transition from a high-wing trainer to a low wing sport flyer as it's stable flying characteristics make it very forgiving at low speed, plus the crash resistant EPO foam is more forgiving in botched landings.
A trouble free take anywhere foamie that you wont be worried to try new tricks with.

So this plane arrived and I was shocked to find that none of the stickers were applies. This is good because it allows me to either applied the stickers provided or give this plane its any color I like. It seem good but I am yet to fly her!Very stable flight characteristics, has little to no tipstall, has enough to pull vertical and nearly glides on its own. Perfect for progressing to a low wing. Only down sides are the tail and elevator are made out of very brittle foam (just trace them out before fitting so you can make spares) and access to the battery is annoying. Overall very nice and relaxing to fly.Check your motor heat sink collar screw for tightness, after doing some run time tests, I found that the motor rotated about 70 degrees
and was sliding forward. Also be sure and balance the propeller.Some additional info. I ran some tests to see run time on my
3s 1300 battery...60pcnt throttle 15 min, 75pcnt 10min. After finishing
noticed the motor had rotated about 70 degrees. You might want to
check the heat sink collar screw for tightness, and balance that propeller for sure. I also had to repair the steering arm which broke
from an overtightened setscrew. Even with some frustrating problems
I think this will be a fun flyer. Stay tuned!Just got my Focus, havent flown yet, but offer a few helpful suggestions. Very nice finish like most Dynam models.
Remove clear tape from bottom of aileron hinge, its very restrictive and will cause servo failure in my opinion.
Flex all hinge joints copiously by hand to ease movement.
I mounted 2 velcro strips laterally by aileron servo and mounted battery (3s 1300) on top of wing, works well and batter can be moved forward or back for proper C.G.
Nose gear needs some beefing up.
I advise to get a trainer type plane like HK Floater Jet before this plane. HAPPY FLYING fellow R/Cers!I just bought this model, glued the few parts together yesterday and did the maiden today.
I'm very happy of it, it's gentle, slow and very forgiving, the engine is well proportioned, don't expect it to hover or fly vertically for ever though!
It is my first low wing model and I couldn't be happier, today I did my first inverted flight, tonneau and loops! It really is a valuable acro trainer, if you are stepping towards acrobatic fly don't think twice, just buy it!Great Plane, seemed really light and low end, but now I always grab this plane. Flies inverted awesome. Wish it had a bit more power, but going to try a 8x6 prop. Handles wind good for how light it is. Great for learning basic tricks, rolls, loops, inverted flight. Highly recommended.Wow what an amazing plane! It's flight characteristics is amazing. Very responsive. Perfect rolls and find it's balance with such ease. Loops were spot on too. I felt so balanced on this plane that it gave me the confidence to do all kinds of tricks. I did my first 'knife edge' and flew upside down.This is a great beginner low wing plane. Very forgiving. My son's first low wing and he flew it great. The nose gear control horn is the weak point of the plane, and required a fix. I also removed the wheel fairings for easeir grass takeoffs. The battery is installed by removing the wing, so I modified it by removing the canpoy and cutting a hole in front of the pilot. Canopy now held on with rare earth magnets. Works great!I am waiting now almost a year for my missing parts. I have sent plenty of emails. They just keep promising me the parts but no parts has arrived yet.
