Flyzone Aircore Series - Seeking pilot reports
 
I came a cross the FlyZone Aircore planes and thought they looked very interesting. I had not seen them before and, when I did a search I found very little about them. So I thought I would ask for some pilot reports.

For those who don't know these planes the idea is that you have a single removeable power stick that has motor, servos, ESC that you can move between planes in less than a minute. Lowers the cost and virtually eliminates set-up.

It also seems that the set-up is consistent from one plane the next so you can use a single, non-computer radio to fly a whole fleet of planes.

So, who has them. Inquiring minds want to know what you think.

FlyZone Aircore series - :cool:

Buy one power stick and snap it into many planes.
Works with Tactic Radios, probably the Hitec Aurora 9X and
Any radio equipped with the external AnyLink module

Hop over to www.motionrc.com & look up the ME109 & the review.

Do you have them? What do YOU think?

I like the idea of the air core system, so I've been looking for some information lately myself. I can't seem to find a lot of people that have tried them, but FT did a recent review and seemed to like the overall design. Had good results with one but also had trouble with a different air frame.

Here's the video if you haven't seen it...

I like everything about the idea except that they don't offer a power core without an RX for people that have other brand radio systems.

The system of having engine, fuel tank RX and servos on a removable module has been done . I think "US AirCores" had a patent pending on the idea over 20 years ago.

Just use the AnyLink with your radio = Easy Peasy!

I have one that I use with my Futaba 9C to fly Flyzone TX-R planes. Has worked just fine.

Sorry... I don't want to use an adapter.

I have the Aircore Miss America and ME109 airframes and 2 power modules. I thought one was defective, but it ended up being that the battery was bad. I like the way they fly. Way faster than the UMX micros from Horizon Hobby, although I find that mine don't roll very well and they are a bit tough to land on pavement. Don't know why. I also like the fact that they feel better built than the HH micros. The airframes just feel more "beefy." I fly mine using a Tactic TTX650 computer radio; which is excellent by the way.

I picked up the principle from the aircore series brought it indoors and was having problems taking off the plane just wants to bank hard to the right and even when hand launching the plane it still wants to bank hard right
