Simple but without instruction to complete.
On Friday I ordered ten Trainer King planes (for our club`s new traing scheme) and by today Monday 10th Dec, I reveived the packages and opened one box and all seems ok. I willk post a build review later on. Thanks MotionRC for the speedy delivery and packaging.
I bought this barebones. No engine, no electronics. I already had the items. If I was a new person in this situation the ease of putting the plane together would have been poor. Example, the instructions had no information about putting the engine in. There was supposed have been a 'Y' servo connector included for the ailerons. There wasn't. I had an extra. I suggest that you sell the aircraft RTF, not to have to do all the extra. A new person would be lost and give up.
Like the quality of the wing and fuselage. Have not had a chance to build yet.
Great air frame. I bought this in kit form bare bones. I had a Saturn that i demolished through a rookie mistake on its maiden. Prop slip, someone forgot to tighten the nut. We won't talk about that anymore. Anyway i transferred all the mechanicsls to this frame and have no doubt it will be a great flier. This is made of foam very similar to that of a pool noodle so its very flexable and forgiving but slightly more rigid. I dont see how you could possibly damage this unless you augered into the asphalt full bore. It doesn't come with instructions but if you've built a few planes or even gutted a couple fatalities you'll be fine without them. This is pretty much a fool proof trainer. Thanks Motion RC.
This plane is great for those who are just getting into the hobby. I bought the ARF version with electronics. The ESC has a XT60 style battery connector already in place. With about 2 hours of work, it was ready to go. You do HAVE to have EPP safe foam glue. The wing comes in two pieces that you have to put together using the glue and provided wooden sticks which create the dihedral. I don't suggest hot glue for this phase. The next part is gluing the tail surfaces. This is where I give it 4 stars instead of 5. The vertical stabilizer is simply glued on top of the horizontal. Nothing supports it in place. I took a bamboo barbeque squewer, cut it in half, and ran it up the tail with enough to stick into the fusilage to support it. On the main gear, the two provided screws tend to work themselves loose. I placed a few drops of super glue into the threads then tightened then to snug. They never come tight, I'm gonna guess all you do is compress the foam, so the super glue keeps them tight. The only other modification I made was battery placement. The plane is constructed so that the battery goes into a compartment underneath the servo. However, I found that there was not enough room for both the ESC and battery. So I carefully cut the glue around the black on top to make a flap I could open and place the battery in this location. Once you assemble it, it flies great! I was able to get lift off using a 3s 1550 mAh battery at less than half throttle! I've got -15% expo on ask control surfaces and it handles wonderfully in the air. Very easy to control. Banks really sharply. It will almost fly itself. If you are brand new, or haven't down in many years, like me, this is a great plane to get back into the hobby with.
Plan to use this to teach my son to fly a fixed wing R/C model
Some of the hardware was subpar.
I am quite satisfied with this kit. The foam is of durable quality, but the instructions are poor. If you are knowledgeable about building then you can make this a worthy flyer. I cant wait for my esc, etc to get here !
