EPP Extra and MX2 made by Winners Model. This is a nice
flying fun 37 1/2" ARF. Made from EPP and stiffened with carbon
fiber and light ply. Incorporates a full fuse design with magnetic
canopy. The MX2 has a solid foam nose while the Extra does not.
Oddly enough for us the Extra performes slightly better.

Here is how it is
Install the Horizontal Stab, square it and glue, Same for the Main
wing, then the vertical stab
Cut a slit to slide the elevator through, install the elevator and
glue the hinges, install and glue the ailerons
Assemble and install the main gear, use included block for support
or leave it off for removable gear.
At this point all that is left is to glue in the servo supports for
the ailerons and install the electronics. This too about 30 minutes
with CA and kicker. The empty airframe weighs in at 11.4 ounces. Add
up your components for a final weight.
You will need 2 servo extensions for the tail feathers. We found 12"
extensions to be perfect. We used Power HD 1600A (6g) servos, but
most micro servos specking out similar to the old HS55's will do the
trick. When it comes to power, a system of 150-200 watts should be
plenty for 3D type power. We are starting with the 2835 series of
outrunner as we found we needed more nose weight. One could go with
a lighter motor and a larger capacity pack to increase flight time.
Our bird came out at 18.7 ounces (plus battery).
