Default Multiplex Twister EDF

Here is my new Multiplex Twister EDF. Great kit and built using the stock EDF unit and motor. Very happy with performance (no doubt will upgrade later). This is very easy way to get into EDF flying with the kit containing everything you need with the exception of the servos, ESC, receiver and battery.

Multiplex have used quality fittings and I did not need to replace anything.

Only thing I did a little different was to paint the whole aeroplane with a gloss white with some trim paint and then add the included decals to spice it up a little.

Flies great and builds up a nice little howling sound coming downwind - slows down to a walk for landings. It will of course, get away a little from you and being small in size, it does not pay to let it get too far away. Fly close and enjoy the view!!

Big thumbs up from me!!

Hey now,
Got one when they first came out. Loved it, still have it and fly it whenever visability is good enough. I kept mine stock and see no reason to hot rod it it's plenty fast for what it is.

If I want fast and jet I prefer the HET jets, I have a F-20 and F-104 (the 104 is still on the boards), but the Twister is a fun to fly relaxing jet and prolly the best entry level jet on the market, and I have several foamie jets...
I like the paint on this one, looks very good.

Drop a 2W20 and 6904 fan when you are ready Keith, one of the best plug and play upgrade packages around for the twister. 2500-3300 4s pack is needed, the 2500 is much easier to get balanced but short flight times. Guy who flies with us has been running anything on hand up to 5000 4s1p! bit nose heavy but handles it amazingly well!

Default Stock Twister

Hi Guys: I shot a video of my Twister yesterday and thought I'd share it with you. I can't zoom once I start recording and oh, its taped to the bill of my hat. The plane is stock except that I painted it red with Krylon plastic paint. I love this plane.

Thanks Steve, it was fun and I'm getting a lot of experience editing with iMovie. It's a great program.

I was given a crashed Twister .. repaired it .. left the modified Thrust Vector unit on he'd fitted.

It has Hoaye 70mm 6 blader in her (similar to stock) with a 3300kv motor on 4S 2700 ............ Any good ? To be honest - it's a dog.

It was a dog when he got it new and tried it stock ..

Faults :

a) Old style beaded foam

b) Elevator is too flexible.

c) Fin flexes when either elevator or rudder servo moves.

d) Nose is too bulky and heavy - needing the steel balls installed in tail - supplied in kit.

Very disappointed ... with a better nose design and tail - it could be a really fine looking machine .. but it really is old hat.

Sorry .. there are far better EDF machines out there .. I'm just glad that I didn't pay for this !!

Nice job on the vid! I was looking for Pewaukee Lake.

I don't know this plane but you sure made it look great.

Yeah a lot of flyers call the Twister crap, but it's one of my favorites. Mine has a lot of major battle damage that has been lovingly repaired back to near perfection. My buddies and I fly at a vacant lot just north of Ramac Park in South San Jose, California.

My Twister is powered by a HET 2W-20 and Wemotec dynamically balanced 9-blade MiniFan unit on 4s through a Gecko 65A ESC. Max static power almost 1KW, which would drive "better" EDF planes at twice the speed.

But whenever I fly it, everyone in sight is totally loving it! "That's freaking AWESOME!" is the most common comment from spectators.
