Interesting, 3 channel plane. No rudder control. The below prop recommendations implies hand launching.

Recommended APC props:-
9x6, 9x7 This will allow you to get used to the flying characteristics of the Magnumr with easy launching capabilities.
8x8 This is the most common prop used on the MagnumR with good high speed flight and intermediate launching capabilities. If you require more performance on this prop we recommend you shorten the manifold by 1/2" and the tuned pipe by 1/2" This is only for the 8x8 prop
8x9, 8x10 This is used for maximum speed that the MagnumR is capable of but does require a good launch as the engine does not produce the same amount of static thrust.
Where is this plane supposed to be available for that price?

Looks to me like it says $165 US

Magnum is a good plane. Lots of them flying. No gear, belly land. A few folks have installed landing gear for pavement or dirt fields ..... not hard to do.

The combo package for $455 is a pretty good deal.

You better land 11 miles away then - it's a hand launcher.

Yeah, looks like someone got the exchange rate British pounds to USD$ backwards the first time around, and had to fix it. Oh well, no super-cheap Magnums and West .50 V1's after all :-(

Same here, I forget what a grass field looks like, the good thing is the plane would weigh less after each landing in this terrain.[]

I was pleased to see the Magnum again available in the US - has always been a popular plane, and no doubt the market place will respond favorably again

hi alll

I have a magnum R down stairs nearly ready to have a maiden flight .....

I am going to write a review on it soon

The bottom scheme it is awsome !! it's the top carbon scheme but in black+white check !!

As for an undercarrage, the wing has hard points in it and a template where you can fit your own under carrage too (simple wire type) but we've left as a belly lander

However

So far we have not been over impressed with the kit ...
The instructions are poor and have little detial, Glue joints are brittle and require re-enforcing, the film is already peeling and the plane hasn't left the ground yet !, The premounted airial tube doesn't align with it's hole at the rear, and the ailerons (alll dry pre hinged sit amazing quifff - leaving them 3mm high at each aileron tip plus they don't fill the gaps in the wings for them ....

We have contacted weston about the aileron problem ... they were of little use and suggested we re-cut the wings so that the ailerons are not as squiff - eaven tho they come pre cut !


We are far from a critics of model kits, have built kits from the likes of flair, irvine,H9 and YT with out any complaints but for the Weston MagnumR other than asthetics we have not been satisfied sofar.

Hi Paul, sorry to hear you’re having probs with your MagnumR, If you give Weston UK another ring and ask to speak to Steve he will sort out your problems.

No charge to my credit card for the plane. Guess I won't be getting a Magnum R.
