JC  |  Aug 28, 2012

Strengths:
Very easy to build,good looking, easy(ish) to fly. Not too expensive particularly as it comes with the fan unit and a quality motor. . .
Weaknesses:
Can't think of any. . . .
Overall:
The twister is the perfect first time EDF model. Typical Multiplex build quality. I was very anxious before the first flight but without reason. It climbed out very smoothly and was a dot in the sky in seconds.

Strengths:
Very Strong, Easy to handlaunch,flies very well. . . .
Weaknesses:
Slow on standard fan, motor and 3S but there is simple remedy. . . .
Overall:
I ran my Twister on 3S for a while then put a heatsink on the standard motor and ran it on 4S great idea it lasted2 flights !!!! so i upgraded to a HET 6904 fan and a 2W20 motor running on 4S. This virtually drops straight in and all i can say is WOW !!!!! THE TWISTER REALLY SCOOTS ALONG WELL NOW, great upgrade. . .

Strengths:
Easy to build. . . .
Weaknesses:
Underpowered,I bungee launch mine and it still staggers into the air on occasions,beats me how anyone can get it airborne from a handlaunch. Maybe cos Im in sunny Spain the extreme heat makes the air less dense so it doesnt get a proper "grip" in the air. I'll stick to flying my Phase3 Fantom and EF-16 for some decent DF performance. .
Overall:
Dont bother if you live in a hot country !. . . .

Cloggy  |  Jun 30, 2008

Strengths:
Lightweight, good looks, and the Elapor construction is strong and hard wearing. . . .
Weaknesses:
The fuselage is too wide for the average person to hold so hand launches are 'exciting'. Tucks in in high speed turns. The wings rock at low speed. .
Overall:
Of all the many EDF jets I have flown, this one is by far the worst. It has no redeeming flight characteristics that make me want to fly it again. Consigned to the attic. .

Derek Small  |  Oct 04, 2007

Strengths:
Follow the intstructions and you get a good looking semi scale jet with elements of Harrier, F104 and Tornado amongst others. Safe first DF since it doesn't need bungee launch or any other specialist gear. Docile handling as long as you keep the C of G in the safe zone, and flies in most conditions. Easy to live with, particularly with a spare battery pack or two!!.
Weaknesses:
Not enough grunt for the Adrenaline Junkie, but that's not what MPX are selling anyway!It's important not to bleed off too much speed through tight turns, since the speed takes a while to build back up. . . .
Overall:
Goes together quickly, and with a little bit of TLC i. e. sealing the joins and a decent Hi Viz paint job etc makes a great intro to the world of Jets for reasonable money. .

YakMad  |  Sep 24, 2007

Strengths:
It's easy to build and fly and supplied power set will fly the model, just. . . .
Weaknesses:
Does not have proper ducted fan performance, feels a bit like the old Twinjet performance wise. Should have been sold as model only, as then I would not have a motor and fan without a home. . .
Overall:
Good value if you are starting off in EDF, otherwise budget for a better fan and motor. Re-shape the wing tip tanks to the same profile as the wing and gain a bit more speed. . .

Overall:
Superb! - smooth, stable, and pretty fast, everyone will stop to watch you fly this one. . . .
