The unique and quite brilliant Hobbyking® ™ Racer series has been developed with two things in mind....high performance and massive amounts of fun!
The good looking airframe is made from super tough EPO foam and is heavily re-inforced with CF rods, each version is nicely finished in an authentic color scheme. One of the first things you notice with this series is the nicely designed modular construction, the wings and horizontal stabilizer literally snap together making assembly and parts replacement simple and fast. No glue is required for assembly, the vertical stabilizer and tough under-carriage simply screw on and the servo's, high power motor and ESC are all pre-fitted. When you look around these brilliant models, you can see that they have been built for performance, not only are they fast...they are also superbly aerobatic! The large control surfaces for instance are fully hinged, the tail assembly has been designed to cope with high G, high speed aerobatic's, not to mention the odd less than perfect landing, the wheels are proper rubber and can cope with suprisingly rough grass strips and if you want to hand-launch, no problem! these brilliant racers fly out of your hand like a scolded cat!
All of the HobbyKing® ™ Racer Series offer breath-taking performance combined with great looks, toughness, a clever yet simple design and excellent quality construction, all at an affordable price. Great fun flown on their own and simply brilliant flown with your buddies, the HobbyKing® ™ Racers will keep you grinning all day long, just make sure you have plenty of Lipoly's to hand!

Great little plane for the bucks. I had a heck of a time getting mine to balance properly though. Eventually i resorted to installing a 3542 1450kv turnigy motor and an 8x8 apc prop. Now it is fpv only! I dont know how fast it is but its out of sight in a second or so! Handles like its on rails and with 20% flaperon mix actually lands pretty easy for as small and heavy as it is. All in all i bought 2 spares jjst in case. I wish they would bring back the mxs-r and extra so i could get the whole collection.Definitely not a beginner plane, can take a lot of speed (my onboard gps tells me over 150km/h on 4S with a 28-36 1800kv and the kit prop) and very nervous with high roll rate capability.
Had to use a lot of expo and lower the rates to calm things down but once this is done this is a really pleasant plane to fly.
By default it doesn't like to fly too slow (stall very quickly) but if you use flaperon function(watch your radio manual) it act almost as a glider, making it lot easier to land (as is it is not significantly harder to land than my Bix3)
Had some tough landings with only little cosmetic damages so i think this thing is pretty resistant.
Landing gears are useless unless you got a real flat road/runway to takeoff/land from, and anyway it fly better without them.
attenzione i servocomandi sono difettosi crasch al primo volo perche' si sgranano in volo hobbyking non rimborsa i danni da urto...facile cosi'....https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pse5lE8Zk4E
molto bello da vedere e montare! motore ultrapotente!Vemi dobre spracovan model. Jednoduch sa zlo a me s lieta. Lieta to naozaj vemi dobre, je to patrine premotorovan take za chvu je v oblakoch.What a great little machine this is! Flies well, is pretty fast, looks good, easy to build and a real tough one. Undercarriage is something to forget on grass, might be useful on some smooth surface, but can't have much. It reminded me of my PZ Extra 300, but even a bit more fun. Don't think this is a 3D plane, this is a racer with a lot of aerobatic skills. Though high wing load definitely not for beginners. Fly it fast and land it fast.Ok, with 40 flights on it (yes im compulsive) i can give a fair review: Pros: Once in the air, its everything you want in a sport plane. Its powerful, tracks well, and had decent flight times. Foam is VERY durable, and you're gonna need it. Cons: has to land fairly quick, so not really a parkflyer. Takes 100 meters to stop rolling when it lands! Motor mount is ****. Mold a firewall from ply and mount to that. A gyro with aileron is your friend. Any crosswind or turbulence makes this plane a handful. The landing gear is ****. A good replacement is the hobbyzone cub gear with diy ply base, ditch the black plastic. Overall, it flies well, but will frustrate the **** outta you. Out of 40 flights, only TWICE have i been able to swap the battery and turn it without FIXING SOMETHING. The foam holds up, your patience might not. Its ALWAYS SOMETHING, and it sucks the fun out of flying it.Flies well fast, for slow flights go a different route. This is a point and fly plane. It has enough glide for landing as long as u keep a little motor until tbe last foot or two. I have crashed it four times, and as long you belly crash it'll stay together. I keep the gear on as a "crash pillow" lol.nice looker but flies terribly, crap rolls, poor response from ailerons but still very twitchy, to fast to land without damaging it, such a shame.Hab ja schon wirklich viele Schaumwaffeln gehabt,aber diese Verarbeitung ist der Hammer,fester bestens Lackierter Schaum und endlich mal mit Scharnieren befestigte Flaps einfach nur genial
