HobbyKing™ MX2 3D EPP has been built exclusively for 3D. It features huge control surfaces and a light wing loading, the perfect recipe for some extreme aerobatics! The airframe is a unique hybrid of a super light weight plywood underlying structure with the skin of the airframe being of thin EPP foam sheet.
In addition to the unique hybrid construction, the HobbyKing™ MX2 3D EPP also has a great pre-painted high visibility color scheme. This means it looks good and is easy to orient during those extreme aerobatic maneuvers. In keeping with the light weight yet durable theme, the MX2 3D comes with carbon fiber landing gear and a plastic tail wheel unit. The supplied hardware is excellent and this model offers an easy and quick build due to large amount of pre-fabrication. Wings are plug-in as you would expect to make transportation easy and the large canopy is of course removable for easychanging.
This very attractive HobbyKing™ MX2 offers superb performance on the reccomended set up for both the 3D pilot and the sport flyer, the "30ep" class models are popular as they fly like a large scale plane but are relatively inexpensive to build and are very practical. This MX2 is the perfect all round model for the intermediate to experienced pilot it looks good, flys great, is practical and doesn't cost the earth, you couldn't ask for more!

Didn't expect a plane like that.
The only bad thing are the weak wing mounting hooks.

Received mines 2 days ago and all i can say is awesome plane! came double boxed with no damages as she went together nicely. Flys like a dream and will do any 3D move in the book Also this plane is pretty light too , I use a 3542 800kv motor with a 13x6.5 prop and a 2650 4s that gives it Plenty of power!! I highly recommend this plane.Excellent aircraft, maiden it today, very easy and excellent performances !Beautiful colour scheme, really "pops". Wing mount a bit eh with bad rubber bands (one broke after five minutes in the plane, so be sure to put in your own good rubber bands). Good stiff carbon tube spar for the main wings. Good design too, motor and wing and stabilizer all in line. Instructions in chinglish, total rubbish (if you have built anything before then don't worry, it's an easy build). Only value from manual is COG which is at 112mm. Vast space for batteries. I will use 2200 3S (has to go almost all the way to the front) and 4S (some 4cm further back compared to 3S). I put in an Aerodrive 3542 SK3 1250kv motor, fits perfectly with the included spinner and also fits the motor pod perfectly. Servos XGD-11MGB for ailerons, XGD-11MB for elevator and rudder. ESC YEP 60A. Prop 12x6E. Consumes 69A at 1002W with 4S, with storage charged battery, so take it easy with full throttle runs (but then again it should go ballistic then :-). AUW with 4S is 1439g, with 3S 1381g (1174g without battery but with all electronics). Don't squeeze it hard when lifting it, it is a bit brittle (inner structure is not very strong, so and so plywood). But really recommend this plane for the price. Will get back with more info after maiden.A fantastic 3D flyer. Robust construction that can handle a 700W 4S setup no worries!
Very stable in harrier (inverted and upright), tight knife edge (KE) spins, fantastic blenders and flatspins. It also has minimal KE coupling and can hold very high alpha KE, more than any other 3D plane I own.
The colours are very vibrant and more durable than some other EPP hybrids. Overall I am really enjoying this plane.... more than I expected. Thanks F*ture M*del.I got the kit and it was easy to assemble. I gave it a quick check and went flying. It was uncontrollable in the air and the best I could manage was a controlled crash which ripped the gear off. Upon checking the 2 aileron servos and the rudder servos were loose and the screws stripped. Really shoddy workmanship. Check everything and glue the servos down before flying !!The construction of this Model is very flimsy ,just the thinnest of a ply skelton to the fuse and then a thin layer of foam covering...not a plane to be flown in wind .Afer an easy assembly it was off to the flying field ...and thats when the Fun started
The 1st flight saw the canopy magnets let go and the canopy was lost to the wilds, after constructing another canopy the 2nd flight was not much better when the landing gear collapsed after a normal landing ,the 3rd flight ended when the Wing tore in half and the model bit the dust ...its now in my Hobby King Bin.
I think its a case of what you pay for is what you get!Excellent design and flight carecteristcs, only no servo arm extensions supplied, also the tail wheel gear is weak, I replaced it with the one of edge 540 crashed which is stronger.Arrived today from DHL shipping....its nice beautiful plane with parts.....but there is no larger servor arm for 3d not with the package....so next time have to buy all other accessories of this plane soon....thank you hobby king
