Everyone loves the RTF Multiplex Easystar electric RC glider; its great performance and affordability make it a favorite park flyer for both new and experienced modelers alike.
Multiplex has recently released a brand new kit version, that allows you to choose exactly which power system, battery type, and modifications you want during construction.
The new Multiplex Easystar Kit includes all the usual Easystar parts:
- High quality Elapor™ molded wings, fuselage, and tail section
- Custom propeller
- Removable canopy with a secure attachment clip
- Pre-cut bays for servos, batteries, and other components
- Pre-cut decorative decal set
- Thorough and easy to understand assembly instructions
A speed 400 type motor is included for those that choose to use it, but the main point of choosing the Easystar kit is to use a brushless motor and lipo battery. Brushless motors and lithium polymer batteries give you improved flight performance, much longer flight times, and reduce weight. You can also easily include ailerons, landing gear, and other custom parts.
If you want to build your Easystar with brushless hardware and a lithium polymer battery, we recommend the following parts:
The Multiplex Easystar Kit is perfect for first time modelers. It’s extremely forgiving flight characteristics and fast build time mean that you can get in the air in only a few hours. All the foam parts are pre colored, so you don’t have to worry about painting or other complicated and delicate finishing techniques. The Easystar also uses genuine Elapor™ foam that can “heal” broken parts from crashes with the application of heat. An electric power system allows anyone to fly safely in large parks, and the Easystar’s light weight reduces the danger of crashes.
If you’re a more experienced RC pilot, you will appreciate the flexibility that the Easystar Kit allows during construction. With this kit, you aren’t locked in to one proprietary radio system. You can easily choose what radio you want to use, and even use the Easystar with your existing transmitter. Because the Easystar Kit was designed to accept modern brushless and Lipo equipment, it can be used with all your existing chargers, power supplies and batteries.
If you want to modify your aircraft even further you can add our Eagletree flight logging systems, which fit perfectly in the Easystar’s oversized electronics bay. You can even add a wireless video camera and transform your Easystar into the ultimate FPV (first person view) aerial UAV wireless video system.
