New: Multiplex ParkMaster Pro
I built the latest ParkMaster offering from Multiplex, the ParkMaster Pro 3D foamy airplane. The goal was semi-lightweight with high end components, such as good high C-rated LiPos, Castle Creations’ Talon 35A ESC, and a Leopard 315W 71g motor swinging an APC 11×4.7 Slow Fly prop. Includes landing gear mod to make the carbon-fiber replaceable if needed.
