H-king Turning Trix MX2 1920mm EP 3D (ARF) (AUS Warehouse)
Turning Trix offers you a wild 3D experience, this is a 30cc Gas size plane designed and built purely for electric power, it has been designed ultra light, giving you a massive thrust/weight ratio with the reccomended Turnigy power train.
Turning Trix has a nice quality construction, it has been well thought out for electric power, this is not simply a gasser with an EP label stuck on it! Flying weight will be the same if not less than an equivalent size gasser and with the reccomended Turnigy Rotomax 1.60 fitted, you are going to have potentially 3kw clean power for an amazing power to weight, not to mention the thrust of a 21" prop up front! Both the wings and horizontal stabilizers are plug in and all control surfaces are pin hinged. The strong alloy undercarriage bolts into alloy strenghtening plates for durability and the hardware uses ball-linked, heavy duty pushrods and strong but light glassfiber control horns. The colour scheme is wow, and ideal for orientation, the covering has been expertly applied Turning Trix is finished off by a glossy painted glassfibre cowl and wheel pants.
So whats she like when you ask for 3D business? Turning Trix rises to the occasion, the combination of huge power, light weight, large control surfaces and precision airframe gives you a high class 3D experience, Turning Tricks maybe a bit cheap to buy but you will be amazed by how many extra maeuvers she throws in when asked nicely!
Features: Ultra lightweight construction Plug in wings and horizontal stabilizer Amazing colour scheme, perfect for orientation High quality hardware Stunning 3D capability Heavy duty alloy under-carriage & mount Pin hinged control surfaces

Postage $13.99 with 3 day turnaround from the HK Aus Warehouse.
The kit was double boxed, and arrived intact, well done HK.
The kit itself is large, no instructions are supplied, hardware is seperately bagged and is basic. 4mm Landing gear bolts are missing, wheel hubs are drilled off centre rendering them useless, cowling paintwork is poor with raised paint edges due to edge masking & paint bleed across colours. Canopy does not fit fuse and will require frame trimming to fit, no latching for canopy is supplied. Covering will need rework around vertical stab. Aluminium landing gear will need ends trimmed 12mm to fit wheel spats properly, wheel axil's appear inadequate for a 5kg aircraft. Wing & stab main spars are thin wall aluminium tube & seem too short. Hinging is flat plastic pinned variety. I will fit Turnigy Rotomax 1.60 outrunner, dlux 120A HV opto ESC, dlux 10A HV SBEC, ultra light 20 x 12" wood propeller, 75mm carbon spinner, digital servos are 3 x HXT 10kg & 2 x 4.8kg mini's on stab. I will convert rudder to pull/pull using 0.8 coated wire cables. Batteries are 2 x Zippy compact 4000mAh 25C 5S Li-Po @ 460gr each. I'll report again when it's all together & tested......

Finally completed the build, to my satisfaction.
Fixed the poor canopy fit by removing material from both ends of the canopy frame and fuse. I used an aluminium canopy latch to fix the canopy at the rear. I replaced the off centre wheels with Du-Bro hollow rubber ones with a similar diameter. The L.H. wing root required a 4mm balsa wedge added to the rear third to fit the fuse without a gap. I added fixing points rearward of the wing spar tray to fit a single rudder servo tray with ball raced C/F control arms and pull / pull cables to fabricated C/F rudder control horns with 102mm centres (to match forward arm dim's) spacing was 830mm.
I fabricated 4 motor stand-off posts with M4 fixings to suit the Rotomax 1.60 fitted. I also used HD alloy servo arms on all servos.
Ready to fly weight is 5.65kg with 2 x 4000mah 5S 25C LiPo's and C.G. measured as 55mm from L.E. at the wing tips. This is with no ballast added other than a 6mm neoprene pad added to the rear of the firewall for battery protection against motor fixing bolt heads.
Control throws are set as per the manual I've added under the files tab. (The manual was copied from the British Warehouse site)
Looking forward to the test flying phase, soon..................
