Hey Joe,
no experience with the model, but have you seen the video of the plane's creator putting it through it's paces in a small park? Very nice!

I´ve got one, and my advise is to go with the manual´s suggestions regarding throws (65 mm ailerons and elevator, 90 mm rudder).

I prefer to have the cg at 120 mm from leading edge. The manual suggests 110-120 mm. I´ve set it up with motor Pulso KA20-20L, esc Pulso DL22A+, propeller APC 9x6, Hitec HS-55 on ailerons, JR DS285 on rudder, Eflite DS75H on elevator. Had to drill extra holes in motor mount, Multiplex´power set fits perfectly but wasn´t in stock at my LHS. I´m more than satisfied with the set up, the power surplus has saved me from some crashes. My auw is 508 grams. I´m using 1000 mah 3s Esky batteries, these works fine with me for the time being. EDIT: Bought two Vislero 1000 mah 20C batteries today, as the 10C Esky are showing fatigue.

I´m new to 3D, and I love this plane! I´ve practised the basics on "Nasty" scratchbuilt after Waterdog´s plans at rcgroups. I can easily recomend Nasty too. Parkmaster is superior quality, but a little expensive.

Wow! Great video and Great flying!

Looks like a great plane for a 3D trainer.

Hi Guys,

Been flying my PM for a few weeks now, and I gotta say it is THE No 1 Foamy in my fleet. (Outdoor)
Knife Edges are a joke, Hover / Harrier as good as it gets.
Very durable, and easy to repair.
Definitely recommend as a solid trainer.

Some pics from last week.







Cheers

Mick

Default Multiplex kits

Hi Mick,
After chatting to you about what to buy this morning (Sat 24th jan) at the park I went to PerthRC and took a look at the Multiplex Parkmaster (I think it was) and he's gone and put the price up to 200 smackeroos! Bit much.
Then I took a look in the box and thought it pretty damn good. Especially the way they pack it all in a foam crate - not bad. Just seems pricey for a pile of foam.

Sitting next to it was the Multiplex Gemini Bipe! now that's a nice piece of kit! $228 thank you very much! Would that be a better plane? Have you seen one fly at all?

Dunno about the MSComposits. Just wanted to know which one did you recommend there again? The unique?
Bit cheaper I guess - havent done the sums on getting one out here yet.
I think my homebuilding foamy days are over - I'm not that good at it so time to buy.

Thanks,

Dave.

it depends on wind...

it manages winds quite well but always keep in mind it's an ultralight airframe so don't expect miracles...

The MPX Gemini & Acromaster are great fun too but I think the PM will be better for initial 3D Training and that bit less expensive.

I have a friend that flew my ParkMaster today, LOVED the way if flies, and he really wants one. He'd like one already built up and radio-ready. Yes, I know it's a pretty straight forward assembly and that most of you won't part with your ParkMaster at any cost (like me), but I thought I'd at least ask. So, anyone looking to sell a ParkMaster? If so, please PM me.

Alan
