Couldn't find this mentioned elsewhere on FPV Lab so here we go:
Multiplex have a new version of the EasyStar, the EasyStar II coming in December.
It comes with a brushless power system, folding prop, removable tailplane and is aileron ready (just need to add your own servos, linkages provided). Suggested flight times of 40 minutes with a 2000mAh lipo. This makes it a much better first FPV plane, no mods needed and room to grow - assuming you don't destroy it first.
