Default Lazertoyz Fenix 120

Does anyone have one of the above? We saw them yesterday at the Swap Meet in Hamburg, Pa. Interesting airplane. The website isn't very thorough and not easily navigated.
Thnx for any info.

I don't have one but have seen it fly. Sort of like an all-foam version of a GWS Slow Stick. A three channel slow flyer. Non-removable wing too.

PeteThe Fenix planes are real popular at our field. Everything from the Fenix 100 (1M) to the larger Fenix 150 (1.5M.
It looks like they downsized the 150 just enough to make it reasonable to ship. The 150's were only available at events like the NEAT Fair and WRAM show, where I picked min up some years back. Now it appears they're only being made in the 80 and 120 size. .8M and 1.2M.
They fly great, and they take a lickin and keep on tickin

Wings on the Fenix models are all removable. It wouldn't be able to be shipped if they weren't
Most of the time I'm flying 20 and 30cc gas aerobatic planes. The Fenix makes a nice slow flying break.
The guy's at our field, Myself included, will fly our Fenix's in conditions that ground just about everything else. Zero ground speed landings, and flying backwards are all possible with a Fenix, and if you messup, the repairs are usually very minor

Thanks for the input. We saw them at the swap show in Hamburg, Pa last weekend. Their website is rather incomplete and tricky to navigate and they don't answer the phone! The owner did respond to my email, somewhat cryptically though. He said there is a wing kit for making the 120 kit with a removable wing. Do you know how it works? Also an upgraded landing gear? no pictures, no text, no explanations. I may get one.
