Fox Glider 3000mm (118") Wingspan - PNP from FMS - FMM107P

Fresh off the heels of the FMS 2320mm Fox glider comes this whopping 3000mm version with outstanding size, presence and soaring capabilities.  The entire assembly (minus the prop assembly) is a screw-free snap design, making the build, well, a snap!

The Fox 3000mm boasts a brutally powerful Predator 4258-kV550 brushless motor, 70 amp ESC combined with a 6 Cell 5000 for impressive aerobatic performance and extended flight times of upwards to 30 minutes depending on flying style.

The high-torque 23G metal gear servos ensures large control surface throw for an impressive level of high maneuverability and performance.  Positive and negative loops, stall turns, point rolls and inverted flight can easily be achieved with confidence.  Intermediate to advanced pilots will both find this 3000mm Fox a thrilling yet stable sailplane worthy of the skies.

  • Large 3000mm wingspan offers superb glide and aerobatic performance
  • Powerful Predator 4258-kV550 brushless motor for impressive thrust

Great plane

I was worried about handlaunching it by myself but it leaps into the air with a good run, no flaps necessary. This is a big big bird. It goes together easily and fits into my small car easily.

FMS Fox 3000mm

Arrived in a One Big box that was very well packaged with no issues. Model has a real smooth finish, no blemishes, stickers were applied with very minimal bubbles, but on compound curves around nose, they were slit to in a few places to lay flat, so there were some ridges in a few spots. The design of this plane is excellent for its ease of assembly, however I did a few mods for reassurance. I thought the pull spring pin for stab didn’t protrude enough into the bottom of the stab, and the spring didn’t have all that much tension to my likening. I added a long bolt about 3/4” in front of the pin that protruded into the plastic stab center bottom base. I just back it out about 3/16” of an inch, pull pin and stab comes off. I found that sometimes the spring pin didn’t seat all the way, but looked like it was. Added bolt in my opinion is peace of mind, and only took a few minutes worth of work. As for the tail section mount system, it has a spring pin as well that is stronger than the stab one, and has two channels with a twist tab alignment made of hard plastic, with the carbon tube joiner, makes a very solid mating of the fuse pieces. I again found that he latch didn’t engaged all the way by itself, without a little coaxing, and if you handle the plane or someone else and you don’t see that the tab is all the way back indicating the pin is in the hole all the way, I could see the vertical stab potentially twisting on the fuse. So, my quick remedy was to use wire landing gear nylon plastic retainer and drill two small holes on each side of fuse the fuse on bottom: just unscrew one side and pull pin in top to release tail. Again, this is me just adding a little more safety, for me, it’s bulletproop this way and I don’t ever have any doubts. The wing goes on in similar fashion, but has two spring locking pins in each wing half, the last 1/4 inch is the toughest! Hold opposite side of fuse and pull leading edge toward fuse, than pull forcing trailing edge towards fuse, so go back and fourth a few times until pins seat. For getting wings off, pull one pin first, and pull on leading edge, than do trailing edge while pushing pin, once their not seated any more, just wiggle panel out. Once one panel is off, pull spar all the way out and other panel comes off real easy. Check all the motor mount screws, I found they all backed out easily, except the long ones that go into the plastic motor mount which is glued into the fuse. I did put nylon locking nuts on the back side of those bolts, as I couldn’t get them out, and this was added assurance they would never back out. So, put loctite on the bolts that aren’t tightened. I cut more slots for Velcro so I could put two batteries in the compartment. Ensure when you plug leads for rudder and elevator in tail to use a servo connector retainer for added assurance, those are long leads to the receiver. I did away with the Y-harnesses for the wing servos, in doing so, I had to add male plugs on both end 4” extensions because of the wing quick connectors, was female from the fuse plugs, unless you want to solder a male connector yourself. I added carbon sleeves over all the wire pushrods because I will be flying with two 6S packs and plan on some high speed dives and aerobatics. Again, personal preference. I thought the hinges were strong and very nicely done. All control surfaces were very rigid and strong, the wing is extremely strong, carbon wing joiner is very long and stiff, spars in each wing panel go almost to the wingtips. Ok, for the flying! I flew four flights today 6 Jan 18. Hand launching is a non issue, plentiful of power, ensure you have a cut off on your TX, this is a big prop! I had a friend cradle with two hands around main front landing wheel high above his head, worked well. I tried a solo launch holding this same area and had no issues. Def get some help first few launches. Ok, this thing climbs steep and getsto altitude quickly. Unfortunately I flew on a 25 mph windy day, so I really didn’t get a real good feel on how much *********** and momentum it had to accomplish power off maneuvers into the wind. With the wind, very high speed passes with pull up to wingovers and straight to landing were effortless. It lands beautiful, maintains airspeed well, is slippery and sexy coming by power off. I accomplished loops, snap rolls, aileron rolls all power off no problem. I found two 5000s made it nose heaving, however I added a 4000 for ballast, slightly nose heavy, penetrated better and didn’t notice any issues. I can’t wait for a calm day, to really see how it looks doing a sequence way up high. I have time in a real Fox glider, this flies like it, and looks like the one I flew, so it was a must get. Ok, to up the cool factor, I added smoke canisters to the wing tips, I have two flights with these 4 min burning smoke tubes, light each wing tip before launch. Awesome!

Fox 3000mm Glider

So, first thing out of the box, I noticed she was a bit on the heavy side! Assembly was quick, about 20 minutes from start to ready to fly! With a helper hand launching, climb out was surprisingly quick! Trimmed it up and wanted to see how much throttle was needed to keep it level. It is a glider. Went through a few aerobatics(lots of power!), plunge dived it and pulled out beautifully. I've owned several sailplanes and only one other powered glider. It does tend to be an agile flyer but has a constant decent rate. This is an airplane for both powered and non-powered pilots alike. I would tell you now, if you are on the fence about this one, or just sailplane curious, buy it! FMS and Motion RC have got it together on this model. Enjoy flying your new powered sailplane.
