    RE: Dynam focus 400EP?

    This is Andrew from AWLHobbies. The Focus is a fairly new plane on the market, not to many people have them yet. What I can tell you from my experience is that it is an awesome plane. The plane flies great right out of the box, plenty of power for sport flying, lookps, rolls, stalls, etc. It is easly one of the best experiences I have had with an RTF plane. The TX, and RX are both good, and have not had a single glitch with them. The foam is smooth and striong, much smoother than GWS foam. The only complaint I have about the plane is the decals. They are fairly thin and tend to wrinkle when applying them. Other than that, it is easly one of my favorite planes. I think once word spreads about them, you will see more reviews.

    RE: Dynam focus 400EP?

    Yes it does include the Raido on 72MHz FM. I have not had any glitches or problems with mine, they seem very nice. The motor is the Tower Pro 21 turn outrunner, also known as the BP21. Included is 2 8x4.3" props. On this setup the plane has close to unlimited vertical. Way more than enough power to get yourself out of any prolems. Roll rates are good and snappy, loops are easy. Overall it is a good combination.

    RE: Dynam focus 400EP?

    This plane is nice, I have yet to fly it but my pal does and he loves it. I see that it flies really nice and you should not regret buying one. It can be powered by one of those cheap Bell Outrunners. That is all she needs.
    Its nice to be important, but its more important to be nice ...

    RE: Dynam focus 400EP?

    hey,

    Isn't the motor included? why you have to power it by bell outrunners?
    I also have question, what is it made out of? I guess foam? well if its foam then its ok beacase im a big foam lover.
    Balsa is also okay beacause i haven't ever had a plane made of balsa. and it seems cool. so its 50:50

    RE: Dynam focus 400EP?

    Yes, it is foam. It is much smoother, and tighter grained than the GWS foam. It is pretty strong for EPS foam. I crashed mine yesterday, biunced it in on landing. Tried to power it up to get back off, and flew right into one of the big bolders that line the roadway we use as a landing strip. (OK, not the best choice of places, but the rest of the field is good.) Snapped the wing in half. A little epoxy and I was back up flying in about 20 minutes.

    The motor that is in it is the Tower Pro 21 turn outrunner. Also known as a BP21. On the included 8x4.3 props it puts out over 21oz. of thrust. The plane weighs in arround 19-20oz. So as you can imagine, vertical is not realy an issue.

    RE: Dynam focus 400EP?

    Have been flying the Focus for 5 weeks. It's a woderful plane. Mine was a kit i.e, no radio, no motor, no prop, etc. As my receiver is a little big, it's mounted inside the canopy. It's ugly, but you can paint it. With the receiver on top, C.G. is much easier to adjust. Loops, rolls and stall turn are effortless. It will fly moderately fast or a relaxing slow flight. Landings is really slooow. A delight. The nose gear is steerable too!.

    My set up:
    BM2408-21 brushless outrunner
    8 X 6 prop
    Jeti 30-3P Esc
    3S1P 1100mah lipo
    3 X GWS Naro std servos
    Std Futaba receiver
    AUW 16oz

    Hi Paul

    1100 mah = easily 15 minutes+ at leisure pace with some mild aerobatics

    RE: Dynam focus 400EP?

    It comes with a 1250MAH 3S lipo. I get 12+ minute flights, but I like to do a lot of rolls and loops. I thin Easyflyers numbers are about right. Proabbly 15+ with throttle management.

    RE: Dynam focus 400EP?

    This plane looks great. I've been looking for a tri landing gear plane like this. Probably order one up through AWL next week.

    Trying to decide between the kit and the RTF version. Are the instructions pretty good with the kit? Engine and prop recomendations?

    RE: Dynam focus 400EP?

    I just bought the RTF Focus 400 EP and it will be coming in a couple days. This will be my first RC plane, although I've played with lots of RC cars, and am also a full size Cessna pilot. Is there anything special I should do for initial setup? Hints / Tips ?

    Also does the plane have enough control authority to do 3d?
