Speed passes and glorious sunshine. Need I say more about this plane? Probably.

This plane is DEFINITELY NOT a first plane. Considering how quick her roll rate is and proclivity to nose down at launch and under power, I wouldn't necessarily recommend her as a first EDF either - unless you're prepared to learn how she operates from other pilots and program in a launch switch (extra up on the elevons for launch) and add in a bit of extra exponential than you used on your trainer.

The only way to see if she (or any other plane) is a fit for you is to GET FLYING!


Let's chill in the comments, talk RC and anything else happening in your life. Maybe you came here from RC, maybe this video was recommended because it's in essence, a vlog. Either way, it's cool here. We're all friends!

What I like and don't like about the Lippisch.. well, you'll just have to wait!

What I like about the FMS SuperEZ:

  1. The 1200mm wingspan - fits in my car without disassembly
  2. Flies well in wind
  3. Very durable construction
  4. Short take-off
  5. Lands well on rugged surfaces
  6. Flies on cheap and common 3S 2200mah LiPo batteries
  7. Perfect for inexperienced pilots

What I don't like:

  1. The tiny battery compartment
  2. Very floaty (requires longer than usual approach)
  3. Divisive styling (I'm not the biggest fan of her looks)
  4. Noses down during rolls
  5. May foster bad landing behaviour/technique as it is so tolerant to abuse
  6. May frustrate pilots who want more aerobatic capability/ snappiness
  7. No flaps
