|A competition product to the well established Multiplex Easy Star:
Construction / tuning:
The colour scheme of this new plane immediately pleased my eye when
I spotted it in one of the Hungarian model shops.
In addition the plane came with all RC equipment (except receiver)
pre-installed, boosted an installed brushless in-runner motor, ailerons
and all servos. Even the stickers were already fixed!
After opening the box, all parts were nicely wrapped in foil and fixed in a
foam mould. All servos were properly glued in place, the rudders
attached as elastic flaps and all servo-rudder connections made. A
strong CFK rod was provided to connect the wing halves.
The only tuning I made from the beginning was to fix a proper APC
propeller - versus the provided prop - which looked more like a rubber
Within 10 minutes the plane was assembled! Only one thing had to be
glued: the elevator and rudder - with the provided 5-min epoxy glue this
was done in no time.
After installation of the receiver, the rudders were checked and the
transmitter programmed. I did programme butterfly, but it is not needed
as you may see in the video - the plane can be flown very slow - without
The only negative point - the very nice 4-colour manual did not provide
the CG point! So for the first flight I assumed 35 % from the depth of th
wing measured where it inserts into the fuselage.
Actually this plane looks very similar to the Easy Star (Multiplex) - the
foam quality is equal and the fuselage is even re-enforced with a CFK
rod to provide more stability.
Ready, lets take this new Alpha for a spin!
