Default Got everything but the charger

Got my HK MX2 today, got the battery yesterday but no charger until Monday?. I was really hoping to give it a fly over the weekend. I'm not even sure if the mail runs Monday or they take that as a holiday? If so it will be next Wednesday before I can charge the battery. What a pain.

It took about 2 hours to put the MX2 together and as usually I found the instructions lacking. The pictures were so small I got on the Internet and downloaded a manual(PDF) that I could see the pictures on. Had enough juice in the new battery to at least get it bond to my radio. Ought to be a fun plane to fly.

It looks really nice. The wings have quite a sharp taper on them which usually means the stall can be unforgiving. You might want to watch it when it's flying slow or when pulling tight turns. Best test out the stall at safe altitude so you know what to expect.

Good luck with the maiden flight.

Real Nice. I don't think stall will be a worry at all. Ailerons go right to the tips. Easily corrected. Tell us how she goes when you get your charger next month... lol
