    65" Mojo close to 67" Fusion?

    Can anybody compare these two? I am on my second 67" Fusion and have no complaints. But once it's gone there are no replacements. Has anyone flown both? Reading the specs on the Mojo 65 it says it has a longer tail moment compared to the Mojo 60. The Fusion will do precision and 3D and that's what I will be looking for when the time comes.

    RE: 65

    The Fusion leans more toward pattern and the MoJo65 is a little more 3D.
    It would be a good practice pattern bird though as the stick movements are little more noticeable on the MoJo65.
    As for competing in pattern, I'd look elsewhere.

    RE: 65

    Not interested in competing. I just like the way the Fusion flys. I have never flown a Mojo, but many of the profiles I have flown are more like a napkin blowing in the wind. I guess I was hoping the Mojo 65 was more of a hybrid type flyer. Something that excelled at both.

    Thanks for the response Thumb, David

    The Primo 60 has a thinner wing and with low rates does well at holding a line.

    I'd also suggest a 3DHS Velox or Aeroworks Pro x260 60-90 size. They are a compromise for 3D and are closer to pattern than most profiles.

    RE: 65

    I've had this same thought. Rookie 3D, too old to ever be any good at it, but like trying. I have a DLE20/67" Fusion. Picked it over others because of the longer tail moment. Like it because it seems like it might be a little tamer than others similar to it, as well as the fact that I can fly it wide open (6" pitch prop), without a lot of concern regarding blowing the control surfaces off it?

    I have gas powered scale hot rods as well, but like the profile for slowing WAY DOWN, knife edge, random outrageous behavior, etc.

    I would have picked the Mojo 65 as a replacement as well - because of it's longer tail moment? So wondering what is there about this airframe that might make it "a little more 3D"?

    Thanks for any insight! -Al

    Is this like:

    RE: 65

    I have both. Love both. The Fusion does pinwheels better, hovers better. The Mojo65 spins a touch better and does rolling circles a bit better and slightly better KE. I take the Mojo off and go straight into a ke the length of the runway and hold it a foot off without even thinking about it. Very stable. The Fusion does do the IMAC stuff better and if you want a little of both - get it. The Mojo is better (only slightly) on the 3D side. One place the Mojo excedls at however is strength. I've landed upside down, bottomed out on a loop hard into the ground, cartwheeled it, and did other very abusive things and its still going strong! THe FUsion has requierd 2 new fuselages and 2 wing replacements in its lifespan. Plus I hear the Fusion is being replaced by an improved version (and I hope to be 1st in line! ) real soon.I've also had a Aeroworks Pro x260 60-90 size and either of these fly way better than it can.

    RE: 65

    Thanks dave ( and all) you have the insight I was looking for. Although it's hard to believe anything would KE better than Fusion. I only have a dozen or so flights on my kit built Fusion. I flew the ARF for several hundred flights. The kit built is a stronger unit so unless i do a dumb thumb i wont have to make this decision today. I like to look forward and be ready when the time comes. i had the Fushion kit for two years before I finished it. I have flown the Pro Yak BTW. It was not my set up or plane so it's hard to say what it's limits are. But i did not really care for it. I have not looked at the Velox or Primo. The Mojo seams to be the plane most often recommended so i was leaning that way.

    Thanks again guys. Hopefully I have some time before making this decision, but you never know. My ARF Fusion was flying great until i blew the stab loose on it.

    RE: 65

    Look at pictures of the Mojo and compare to the Primo. The Primo has a thinner airfoil and pattern lines. The Mojo is supposed to be a more "soft" handling 3D model (due to fat airfoil) and therefore more forgiving. If you like pattern then the Primo is probably more to your liking.
