A lot of smart guys out there and that's what these threads are all about.

Looks like it is made in the same factory as Extreme Flight RC 50cc extras and Yaks. Construction looks very similar, so it should be a great plane.

Ken the build looks like it's going smoothly. When you guys get them done bring them to SAM and show them off. It'll be nice to see something new on the flightline.

OK, how do the 2 of them differ in flight characteristics? The wing tips on the MXS-R look cool, but is there really a difference in flight?

Thanks Zahoor,
We're trying to bring something a little more exciting to the market. Nice looking, scale and flies awesome.

Not difference that we can see. They both fly exactly the same. We thought that the Talon Tips would slow the roll rate down a bit, but we can't tell if it does. Both do nice rollers. Very neutral airplanes.

EG Aircraft has a good design department.

Now we're hooking up that Hitec 5985MG rudder servo. Extra long aluminum arm with ball links. Good idea to cross the wires for better leverage.
