Multiplex Easystar II just spotted

Coming in December

Was ist neu?

• Kräftiger Brushless Motor, 3fache Leistung gegenüber EasyStar I
• Klapppropeller für weniger Luftwiderstand im Segelflug
• Leicht abnehmbares Höhenleitwerk für einfachen Transport
• Querruder vorbereitet (außer den 2 Servos ist alles im Lieferumfang enthalten)
• Großer Laderaum - Platz für großen LiPo

Quick translation:

    I'm sure the main reason for the folding prop is for gliding efficiency, but one nice thing is that it makes it a bit easier to pack away into a box or case, something they're obviously thinking of with the removable vstabs.

    If you think of how we use it and compare it to how a typical modeler would use it, then it makes sense to add the folding prop. It's usually marketed as a glider and so a lot of people like to fly it in thermals and the like and I'm sure it would be great for those folks. For us and the FPV types, not so necessary.

    Maybe the answer to the folding prop is "because they are cool"...

  • I guess I should have been a little clearer in my comment - I understand the benefits of a folding prop, but what I meant was why on this airframe?  Are people generally using it in a power-to-altitude / glider mode?  I just never thought of it as this type of plane; I think the only time mine (Rest In Pieces) ever went below 10% throttle was on landing.  I guess they had some feedback that told them it would be a benefit.

    Better late than never. The Multiplex quality may be better than the Chinese knockoffs?

    Just a thought.

    A little late I Think!
  • Specifically, less air resistance when at idle/off on the throttle, prop folds up, normal prop would catch the air and still spin when gliding


  • less air resistance

  • I wonder why they went with a folding prop??

  • No room for Ardupilot and other gizmos.....
