Which TX/RX do I need for the AXN Floater-Jet ?
 Rodster 11 points
Hey Johno, any good 4 channel tx will do, I have had 5 of these things, a great value kit, I also removed the ailerons, rudder and elevator, and put HXT900 servos on , plus hinged all the moving surfaces, and cut a small breather/cooling hole in the canopy(just in case!)

yes many people put cameras on them, just be sure to get your cog correct

Yes easily. I run 1600 3s on mine and use a 50g ccd camera and 5.8ghz 200mw tx on the nose and it seems to be about right on CG. and if I fly with the fpv pod I made, I just add a fishing sinker to get the right cg and it flys amazing, must get one of these

to cut a short story shorter - it sucks... Anyone got a decent manual for this promising EPO glider ?

Got this plane after crashed my Bixler and couldn't get it in Australia. Came in excellent packaging. Everything required, even glue was included. Took only 30 minutes to make it flight ready. Taped aileron and elevator hinges. Few things: - CoG was nowhere documented. Had to guess around the thickest part of the wing. - Very sensitive to wind. Not able to overcome a slight wind. Goods: - Only 30pcnt throttel was required to nicely cruise - Very easy to hand launch - Excellent finish Overall, if you pick a calm day, this is an excellent plane.

Awsome plane for the money. 2 days delivery from NSW warehouse. Well made, stable flier. Have flown in 15kmh winds no problem. Remains to be seen how long the motor will last but would be cheap to replace anyway.

G'day bought 6 of these gliders for club night flying. A nice quick build and all was supplied for construction. I optioned to use the turnigy 3S 2200mh batterys in them and in this configuration found the c/g to be perfect at 1/3rd of the wing root .Out of the six planes test flown none of them needed any trimming, perfect out of the box.(it was very gusty between 20-25km's)
Ok now for the not so good points,
1. the motors where wired up incorrectly running the wrong way for pusher ,
2. the rudder & elevator servos not glued in very well (we epxoyed them in place)
3.aileron and rudder mix is a good idea for more responsive and flatter turning. (aileron alone was not real good)
OK as far as ratings go i'd give it the thumbs up, for quick and ease of build and quality of the foams smooth finninsh to be one of the best ive seen in a foamy.
For the money it's a well worth investment.

Awesome plane, top quality finish and the stickers are great quality
Easy to assemble, make sure you get your CG right, makes it so much easier to fly, also glides forever
Great for beginners and best to use some Zippy 2200 mah packs, CG is perfect. Make sure you tighten your motor mount (2 grub screws) common issue with them coming lose. My motor popped out on maiden flight but was an easy fix. Use a little loctite to make sure they don't come lose with the vibrations
Motor is very powerful, worth upgrading to a 6x4e propeller as on a fully charged 3s pack the motor will make over 200 watt with easy. Makes this plane a whole lot more fun to fly! Great value for the price

The cons - one servo started smoking on first power up. The wings don't hold in well so need to either glue them or make some catch. Gets a little unstable when flying rather slow while turning due to the big wings. The pros - My 7 year old did the maiden flight and flew it like a pro. Previously he only flown small 3ch planes. That's how easy it is to fly. Bring it up and than glide nicely down or just cruise around. So easy I was getting bit bored being used to planes that need constant attention. Can't do any rolls with it but can do fairly tight loops on 3S. Looping at full speed bends the wings like crazy but they don't break. I hit a lamp post at 1/2 speed and only got a dent in the wing. Pretty tough plane I'd say. it flies well on 2S as well, even had in small 2S 1000mah and it was fine tho little tail heavy for gliding. When Lipo goes low the ESC will alternate to motor speed up/down to let you know wchich is pretty need tho the forst time I thought it was about to die not knowing what it was :-) Good plane, get one.
