Griffwerks MX 3D Foamie Plane - Mini Review
More info can be found here - http://griffwerks.com/
Complete kit came with all parts and electronics to complete the plane.
Only needed to supply:
Battery - 2s 500ma Lipo with JST connector
Rx - Spektrum A6100
Glue - Foam Tac and medium CA with kicker
Overall impression that it has very good quality EPP foam, low parts count and a lot of pre-built parts including; pushroads with z-links installed, servos with EZ connectors installed, ESC connectors pre-soldered and aileron and elevator pre-hinged.
full instructions can be found here:
Plane went together fast and parts quality and fit were excellent.
Instructions were easy to follow and complete.
The flying characteristics are very good from first impressions although a calmer day (less than 8-10mph winds) will be more enjoyable I think.
Plane flies true with no bad tendencies. Floats well due to light weight and suggested motor ESC combo provides more than enough power to go vertical and hover (even on 2S with 9x4.7 prop). It can be flown in a limited space (baseball/soccer field) with confidence
This is my second 3D foamie (I have a TH Crack Pitts 12) and this plane was easy to put together and my initial impression is that it flies well and a little faster than the Pitts but not by much. It does roll faster but I haven't had enough time to evaluate all of the flight characteristics nor its "crash sustainability"
I would recommend this for someone looking to start 3D flying and want an economical, easy to build and fly foamie for indoor and/or low wind days.
