I bought the foam parts and then installed my own electronics. Anyway, it is fun airplane and I plan on keeping it.
weak motor had to replace it for better performance
wing had to be glued came loose otherwise.motor and prop were replaced with more efficient parts I had.would not recommend this product without upgrade
Ready to go out of th box is not accurate. Instructions are poor for a beginner. Sent wrong transmitter with plane (throttle was on the right instead of left). Sent replacement transmitter but won't bind with the throttle, after spending over a half hour on the phone with support. Sending a complete replacement plane, but for a simple beginner trainer airplane, my experience has been nothing but complicated.
Calm day flier.
Do not fly this in any wind. It will fly good on a calm day. The prop and motor are very under powered for wind situations.
Rocky the Flying Suirrel
This plane tends to pitch up a little to readily under power and seems to need more power as it climbs in steps ( maybe a better prop or more powerful motor as well as reinstalling the rudder system might help) It's a good thing it's pretty sturdy and expect I'll get better with it in time.
My Trainer has taken a lot of abuse from a new pilot but is still flying. Really glad I bought it. I now have a Spektrum DSi6 Transmitter for other planes. Will the FMS 800 Trainer bind to the DSi6 transmitter to simplify life?
Downgraded from 4 stars
I have tried to fly this several times. Today was the first day I could keep it in the air. Launched into a very light breeze and the plane climbs and is easy to control. Turn to come back and even a very light tailwind drives this into the ground. Checked the trim on aieleron and elevator and it is all set just perfect. Even a light tailwind was forcing the plane down even full up elevator just made the plane go into the ground (although much smoother!). Went to another park to try again and the same problems. CG is spot on, I know when you add power it pushes the nose down but this is not a preventable situation? Into the wind it works perfect! Turn and down it goes..... I was flying with fully charged batteries and kept the throttle at full speed to avoid stalls. Servos are all working and nothing is reversed on transmitter. Maybe this plane only works on calm days. Very disappointing experience!
Typical FMS Product
Design 5 stars, Assembly 5 stars, 12als 4 stars as they just seem to always start coming loose right out of the box, instructions Huh? What am I supposed to be doing? Very hard to understand and as usual poorly worded and bad pictures so 3 stars.
Great little plane
I have flown rc helicopters and quads for years but never a plane and after doing a lot of research i got this one for these reasons: > easy build > available spare parts > handles crashes very well > great support from motion rc > fairly easy to fly had it up and running in 15 minutes and it flew fine first throw. i crash proofed it a bit with packing tape and after several crashes you cant see any damage. the elevator servo connector on the rudder did come off the tail but a little hot glue on that and the other connectors reinforced them and they have withstood many more crashes. it came all bound to the tx and rx and fairly well trimmed. i did a little bit adjustment on the elevator and now it flies straight and true. the batteries are jst connectors so if you have a charger already with jst you wont need the additional adapter. it is very responsive so a true beginner may have a bit of a harder time and from what i have read the 1200 is easier to fly as it is more stable, i just wanted the nice small size to throw in the car
Motion RC has a new European website
