I really like the plane. The build was really simple. I had the plane together in about two hours with out a single problem. I have about ten flights on the plane. It flies great. It is easy to fly. I have the 5,000 6 cell battery all the way forward as mentioned in your review. The plane is very easy to land with or without flaps. Like the new paint .
Fastest build yet, and a great flyer.
This is "version 2" which is identical to V1 except that they've taken the time to give it a really nice paint job and upgraded EDF units. The plane was expertly packed as usual for Freewing products and so it arrived in perfect condition. The manual can be somewhat obtuse in parts - its obvious it wasn't written by someone who was fluent in English, but the pictures show what to do and its easy to assemble. I think this is the best 262 foamie on the market.
Great model gets a new, accurate color scheme. One Q.C. complaint though...
I like my "old scheme" ME-262 so much that I ordered the new one as soon as it became available. This is one of the nicest flying EDFs I own, and looks terrific in the air. My new camo ME-262 arrived. The good news to me is that the new paint is very nicely done and the colors appear to be accurate. This is the 262 on display in the Air & Space Museum. Unfortunately, when I lifted the lid, the first thing I saw was a terribly applied cross decal to the left wing panel. I don't think I'm being too fussy when I say this should not have passed QC. I sure wish that FW and MRC would continue the new trend of leaving the decals off and leaving it to the modeler to put them on or order alternative markings from Callie. I realize I'm being picky, but the wing crosses aren't even correct -- the stroke width is too wide. It'd be nice to let modelers who care correct these kinds of things. And not to be too negative, but I think the MRC videos and product description are little misleading when they tout the new and improved power setup. The "old camo scheme" 262 has had the upgraded motors and fans for some months (mine old one has them). I had the impression that the motors had been upgraded even further along with the new camo. Or am I mistaken? Is anything new and improved over the last year's version of this plane? I have to remove my wing to transport -- there's quite a bundle to connect, so I used a 4-servo quick disconnect, and that's made all the difference. I did not like the phillips head self-tapping screws, so I replaced with hex-socket screws and threaded the plastic mounts (I use a 3mm hex screwdriver to assemble). This is much more "positive" when assembling. Doing these two things, I can get the model assembled in less than five minutes. I've been flying with both 5000mAh and 6000mAh lipos with no problems. As I said at the beginning, just a terrific flying model!
Great flying and looking plane!
This is the new paint scheme on the Freewing ME-262 and tonight was the maiden flight. Two things I didn't care for with this plane are the way the servo cables come from the wing to the fuselage where the receiver is and the screws that are used to hold the fuse to the wing, they are self taping screws and not bolts. Hopefully assembling and disassembling the plane over time won't strip the screws mounts. I am using a cable bundle with MPX connectors so I only have one cable to plug in between the wings and fuselage, this allows me to deal with one cable instead of four and will make assembly / disassembly much easier. I'm using the same setup on the 1600mm Spitfire and it works really well. When I assembled the plane tonight the gear was up, once together I dropped it, the nose gear came down but the mains did not. I retracted the gear and dropped it and then all three came down so I didn't think much of it. I'm using the new style Admiral 6S 5000mAh battery all the way forward. The takeoff was smooth and quick, the plane flew really well with the books low rates, minimal trim was needed although I think I was nose heavy as when I went inverted it took almost full down elevator to keep the nose level. I also noticed in turns that I needed a bit more up elevator than I think should have been needed which further leads me to believe the plane is on the nose heavy side. Rolls and turns were nice and smooth, this is a really nice flying plane.. During one of the passes I noticed that the mains did not retract, I tried cycling them a couple of times but to no avail. Once on the ground I tried them and the mains would to budge. I'll get the plane on the work bench and check it out to see what's going on. They worked up and down several times a few days ago when I got the plane first assembled. Landing was really easy with this plane, there were no surprises but I felt as if I didn't have enough elevator for landing so I kept the speed up and elected to land in the grass since it would help slow the plane down once on the ground. The video blurred out while on final then corrected itself once I was down. This is a solid flying plane and I cannot wait to get more flights on this over the next week. I remember a flight video where Pilot Ryan said he started with the battery all the way forward but then ended up moving the battery back 1/2" so that's what I'm going to do next time. https://youtu.be/Fl0viMdBsNk
