Multiplex Easy Star II FPV
After some doubting between the HK Bixler I or II and the Multiplex Easy Star I or II, I deceided to go for the Easy Star II. Although it was very tempting to get an Easy Star 1 or Bixler as they are quite cheep. I liked the advantages of the new Star so went for the number II. This is also my first plane from an established brand. Well below you can read my set-up.
The Easy Star concept is not new. The number 1 is flying around for several years and has been cloned by many brands. The EZ*I & II are very friendly beginner airplanes. And is used by many as an FPV platform as it is very stable, has auto correction due to wing shape and is very durable. Although it is cloned very much it is still a little different then the clones. Better foam, stock reinforcements and better parts. Even the inside is different then the clones. It took some years before multiplex woke up and decided to add the better stuff from the clones to the EZ*II. The EZ*II has a removable horizontal tail wing so you can transport it it it original box!
