5 Stars Very Predictable

Larson from LA wrote (August 13, 2014):

I own 14 60 size planes and the MX Escapade by far is my favorite plane. The MX Escapade performs as good as any plane I have flown. Its flies very smooth and very predictable. I powered the MX with an OS 70 FS. Very easy to assemble and designed very strong. This is my warm up plane and fever plane when I have a fever to fly. I would definitely buy another one in a heartbeat.
