Description
This model is hot!
An EPO 1.4m 3D head-turning machine; this large scale model will surely draw a crowd at any club and demand full respect amongst 3D pilots the world over.

The distinctive and scale scheme is ideal for orientation. The MX2 is large for an EPO model and it looks nearly twice the size once it's in the air. Its a blast to fly and is very 3D capable!

The powerful, pre-installed 36-48 motor spinning that large & scale 3 blade prop gives plenty of thrust for the wildest of maneouvers, and the pre-installed servo's are certainly up to the job. Generous size control surfaces combined with light weight ensure this is a true performer as well as a head turner. Practical as well as easy on the eye, the wings are detachable for easy transportation, a large canopy ensures easy access to Lipoly tray, wing bolts and so on.

I gave this 5 stars overall only because HK had it on special offer so it was relatively cheap for this size of model. If I had paid the full price I would have been more upset. There is way more to do than you would expect from a PNF plane.

- Motor not installed. They had tried to attach the ESC to the engine mount (good idea) but then the motor would not fit so they left it hanging loose.

- Spinner was dud - something had gone wrong with the injection moulding and the screw tube was all twisted. Used a soldering iron to bend it back and managed to get it on the plane but needs a new one.

- Elevator push rod is about 2cm too long - but better than being too short I guess. Only way to fix it is to take the pushrod out and put a new 'Z' bend on the end.

- Tail wheel pushrods are too long - more 'Z' bends.

- Canopy is not glued and no glue supplied. Tried epoxy with no luck. It is quite tricky to get a pro finish. You need the right glue and if you have never done it before can ruin the appearance of the whole model.

- Not enough hinges on the control surfaces and they pull out easily. Have re-glued several already.

In fairness all these can be fixed with a little time and ingenuity and the model looks great when it is finished.

Arrived well packaged.
Put together easily enough in a couple of hours taking it slowly.
Maiden flight was one of the easiest I have ever done.... was using 40% elevator rates with 20 expo and 80% aileron with 20 expo and 60% rudder no expo.
Plenty of power with a 2200 4s nanotech. Landed beautifully and the stall test I did was just a gentle nose over.
I put an extra magnet on the canopy as it did come semi unattached.
I am very happy with it! :)

Ich habe versucht dieses Modell zu einem vernftig fliegenden Flugzeug zu machen: leider ohne Erfolg, das Merial taugt einfach nicht. Es ist extrem empfindlich, bei etwas hrteren Landungen bricht es sehr leich komlpett durch. Die Flgelbefestigungen sind absolut untauglich, etc, etc. Nach viel Stunden und Reperaturen (und zugekauften Ersatzteilen) habe ich mich genug gergert und werde das Modell "entsorgen", auch wenn es am Boden immer noch sehr gut aussieht.
Sorry HK, ich bin sonst von vielen eurer Produkte sehr angetan!

I got this as a gift for my son he is 42. So this is not for son who is a good modler. The instructions are useless and pictures are even worse. The small parts bag was missing many items. The paint on one single panel was bobbles no paint. Flying is good but the CG is very important. No Where in instructions is it provided

Nice looking model, pity the quality is crap, tail wheel a pain ,control rods to long, elevator rod to long by 15mm , wrongly labelled items. poor manual, screw hols filled with glue, wheel hubs have to be drilled out to allow wheel to spin , tight on bolt so when wheel turns it follows thread and locks up. rudder needs extra hinge, hope it fly's awesome after all the mods and work to get it built.

Im going to be as real as possible on this plane. Stock setup will not 3D , the plane is too heavy for this. Flew mines today with a 2650 4s and when she got airborn as soon as i pitched the plane she wanted to snap on me (Wing tip stall) then i landed the plane and tried a lighter battery this time using a 2200 4s , Did much better but still had the snap problem when pitching the plane. Don't Believe what you see in the video in the description of this plane because it will not perform that way with some modifications.

1ST thing i would do is replace the wing spare with a lighter one because thats one problem for the wings. Weight is every important in a aerobatic plane. 2nd Replace the landing gear with carbon fiber lighter ones , these add extra weigt to the plane. 3rd Change out the tires and buy lighter ones. Those 3 items i mention should be replaced to make this plane lighter and fly better.

The stock motor and prop are good enough for this plane to do 3d with , did some testing before i took it out to the field. Other than that it flys pretty good , takes off fast. Just with they would make some changes to the plane and make it lighter.

The tail piece on this one may arrive warped. The landing gear holes in the bottom of the fuse don't line up and have to be re-drilled before the landing gear can be re-attached. The landing gear wheels will bind-up and you may need to remove the wheels and remove some foam to allow the wheels to spin freely. The tail wheel arm will likely hit the tail/rudder and may need to be bent to fit. Mine snapped, even with heating first. I had to fabricate a new piece in the correct shape. It's easiest to do this with 2mm aluminium. The motor mount screws are over-tightened and not holding well in the wooden brace. You may need to swap them out for larger screws. The motor has no loctite on the bolts. You should unbolt it all and loctite it all in properly. The servos that come with it are not as advertised. They are full size units (41x20x37) of unknown make/model. They have lots of play and will need to be replaced before you fly, with better quality units, as the rudder/elevator will be too floppy.



Not a good product, but with some loving you can get it into reasonable shape.
