Just what I was looking for......buy it!
Extremely happy with this ship! I have some expensive balsa 3D and I would chose this over them for a go-to easy to transport beginning, intermediate, even advanced 3D flying. The Wt and balance seems perfect for me and landings are extremely easy- not so for most 3D's- lands much more like a park flyer. There is a bit of coupling for hover but the knife edge is truly fun and predictable. You can't beat the price. I was expecting some servo issues from other reviews- not the case for me. I really like the shape of the plane and the flawless decals, the quality/ease of assembly (control rods already installed on the ailerons!), including a good prop. I also like that the hinges which were pre-installed (save the rudder) and they were done correctly- I just hate putting those hinges on. I find the servos are crisp enough and very good at throwing the plane around. This will hover at a bit more than half power- and I like the high KV motor and prop combo. Easy on batteries and efficient -so I can fly it and fly it! I was looking for a park flyer size foam 3D that didn't look like my kids Michael's poster board project and I got much more than I knew I wanted. Highly recommend this. Yes, the wing pants on the gear aren't going to love tall grass- two screws take them off. PS if you have a servo issue just replace one with a better quality and fly until wings fall off!
Tech one revolution
Aileron servos didn’t work appear stripped ???rest of plane ok plane goes together easy took more time changing out servos . Have nt flown yet . My friend has one and flies well,will get up this week . Should be fine .
Revolution-Landing Gear modification
I sheared off my landing gear on the second flight when landing in grass at the end of the runway. I replaced the OEM landing gear with FMS #ROHKH106 purchased from Motion RC. The gear is used on the MXS 1100mm plane. It fits well and is sturdy. I cut a groove in the bottom of the fuse and mounted section of white plastic brush handle in the groove and secured it with a 6-32 3" machine screw and "T" nut. Other than the landing gear, the plane flies knife edge and other aerobatic maneuvers with ease.
Only Poor Servos Prevent the Revolution from Being Outstanding
I purchased my Revolution from Motion RC approximately one month ago. I have 28 flights on the airframe as of this writing. I have had no crashes, and no hard landings. At the outset, I must say the folks at Motion RC have been absolutely fantastic! I had 3 out of the 4 original servos from Tech One go bad. The folks at Motion RC replaced all 4 servos with Tech One servos, although I have not used them. I simultaneously ordered 4 FreeWing 17 grams servos to replace the original Tech One servos. So far the 3 FreeWing replacement servos that have been installed for both ailerons, and the elevator, are working perfectly. (Only about 20 flights so far.) I am replacing the rudder servo just prior to writing this evaluation. The airframe comes in a highly finished condition, and is very well packaged. My actual build time, not including setting up the receiver, was barely over one hour. I put a lemon-RX 7 channel plus gyro receiver in the aircraft, although I did order the Admiral 7 channel receiver from Motion RC. It is essentially the identical receiver. Both receivers offer a "panic mode" that can be mapped to a single button. Otherwise, both receivers include derivative based gyros that are EXTREMELY effective if you fly a light aircraft such as this in mild to moderate wind. (I do.) The only weak point of the airframe would seem to be the landing gear attachment to the fuselage. A hard landing will either shear off the landing gear or break the plastic landing gear attachment which is secured in the fuselage foam. Replacement would be fairly difficult. The motor seems to run a little bit on the warm side, but the ESC runs fairly cool. Inverted flight, knife edge flight,& moderately high alpha slow flight are relatively straightforward. The aircraft has a slight tendency to "wing waggle" when held in a 45 to 65 degree nose up attitude using power and in the slow transition to hover. Overall, the airframe is very easy to control, extremely well behaved, and I have not discovered any bad habits. My overall assessment of the airframe is an EXCELLENT FLYER! Mine came with really, really disappointing servos – although it's possible that the servos from Tech OneI received came from a bad batch. The landing gear arrangement will take mild to semi-moderate stress, but if you have a severe landing, you will most likely have to do some serious surgery in order to replace the landing gear attachment embedded in the foam fuselage. Note – you can quite happily fly the airplane WITHOUT the landing gear attached. The landing gear can be removed or re-attached at any time in less than 2 minutes. The wheels are too small to allow safe landings on grass that is much taller than the height of a well manicured golf green. Attempting to fly the airplane in taller grass will result in ripping off the wheel pants, or even the landing gear itself. I routinely get a a maximum of 4 minutes flight time at moderately high throttle settings and 6 minute flights at reduced throttle settings using a 2200 milliamp hour 11.1 volt, 3 cell battery. I hope this helps! James E Gluckin, M.D.
A lot of **** for the buck!
For an ARF PNP coming in at under $200 is was a very good value. I had it from box to flying in about 30 min. Just need to add your receiver and battery after ******** and glueing the model together. It flies really nice and would make a great addition rod someone's hobby hanger.
Very poor components in this Airplane
Right off the bat I had to replace the Y Cable for the ailerons as one aileron would not function. Also replaced a rudder servo. Later I had to replace the motor has it would not start up normally. Then it did crash because an aileron servo failed and would stick and chatter in the full down position. I was able to rebuild the airplane with a new motor mount and new left aileron servo. It is still flying so far. The airplane is a good flyer when I can keep everything working.
Re-evaluation; Great Plane Great Price with exceptions.
I loved this plane, but eventually realized the slop in the control surfaces was from the gear slop inside the servos, changed those out, not a deal breaker. 2nd horrific feature is the motor mount , it looks awesome but if you break it lol, it is not two interfacing pieces, the entirety of the design is one solid slab of plastic, very brittle and very recycled material appearing , like is was made to bio degrade as you see in lots of plastic products today. I have this amazing Power Tac Glue for plastics that I bought from Motionrc, sadly for this material it does not work. To replace the motor mount is not for the faint of heart, for starters you need to cut off the front end to access it, then it is attached to two longitudinal carbon tubes (square) via more glue?,, , and Motion is out of stock. I loved the plane but it is not useable at this point, there is not hardly a scratch on my plane to warrant needing to replacing the motor mount , I broke a prop, that's about it, that's all it took to destroy the motor mount. I will buy another if they get around to a V2 with a two piece motor mount system where the Firewall/mount will not likely break, but the insert can break , so that is all you need to replace typically, and of course a removable cowling so you can reasonably get to it in the first place.
Fantastic , Price Point / Performane 'Value'
Apologies if this is hard to read, I don't believe Motion's text management allows for paragraphing nor offers ; 'what you see is what you get formatting. Build; Very straight forward save for the poorly designed wheel to strut interface, not a big deal , drill out screw hole and use longer and better styled screw, I used a servo screw, worked out. Added servo extension cables (2) (not a problem, have tons). The extra odd shaped piece of foam fills the gap after inserting the horizontal stabilizer. . Don't pull ******* the rudder or elevator cables, they will come apart in the middle, if you do, take out servo fish string with small bolt through fuselage add extension to make connection easier , also tape the extension/s so they don't come apart too easily, you have to fish the rudder and elev separately the holes are staggered. I went 4cell 2200 mah bat (the smaller cube ish' style like zippy etc) pushed totally back against wood support, about 1 1/2 " back from motor mount, gives me a cg around 85 to 90mm also added about 20 grams (4 quarters) near tail, flies inverted close to flat. But start with whatever factory says and experiment in small increments , for sport flying I wouldn't probably add the tail weight. Flight: Take off; incredible, predictable, 10 ft or 30' off runway , either way , wham its gone , very nice. Hand launch , super easy , I don't throw , I throttle up (I wouldn't try it on 3 cell/ 3s) like some of the videos you see, after if pulls pretty well, ( I have 2 to 3 clicks up from half throttle on my dx6 and hold top of plane well behind cockpit) I easily let her go. DO NOT DO THIS if you haven't hand launched lots of planes already, successfully. Maiden required only a bit of elevator clicking, and that was with more nose weight, probably considering cg at about 80mm initially. Plane on high rates and low rates does about whatever you would want it to do, really tight loops, rolls, I use lower rates for landings and roll outs, and it sport flies better on a lower rate, I'm using probably 70% on low, with 35 expo. Knife Edge is very nice and easy on low my low rates, prop hover , I can't say, I'm new to hovers and not great at it, but I've seen videos of it doing very well. Now the terrible; Servos are very strong but the slop is HORRIBLE, the slop can't be fixed as far as I can tell it is in the servo gears for some reason, I get a 1/4" slop in my ailerons , this probably explains why the plane scares me sometimes when I let go of the sticks is seems to not carry the lines that I had expected. I'm not complaining considering the overall value, I will just some replacing, I had ignored the slop at first because it looked like perhaps a combination of servo horn , control rod, etc, nope, 99% of the slop is right there in the servo, strong and quick but loosy goosey. Get this plane , I would buy another one. ps , the gear will break if you slam down hard, use motions Plastic Tac where the plastic breaks and contact cement around the base, the carbon fiber doesn't break, but the plastic does. I had probably 30 flights before I started ******** around with the plane, got bored, if you land it like it is capable, the gear will never break, and I don't see why anyone would give this plane less than the 5 stars it deserves, no plane at any price is perfect, this one performs very nicely, I think that's what most of us are looking for.
my opinion, don't buy it.
Had it for a year. Never got it balanced in flight, always wanted to climb even with a gyro or a 2600mah battery! Loved to hover and harrier, just not fly level. Very hard to land.
