Multiplex Dogfighter tips?

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I'm wondering if there's a Realflight 7 equivalent to practice on. I can fly and land most of the planes in the program even with the wind setting at 6-10Mph. (not counting jets or rotary)

I'm coming at it from recently relearning to fly on a Flyzone Dehavilland Beaver and an old Royal Air 20H with a .25 engine (high wing, symmetrical airfoil, a little dihedral). It is a little heavy from repairs so needs as much runway as I can give it or it stalls.

When I was a teenager, I also flew a Skybaby aerobat (straight wing, thick symmetrical airfoil).

Re: Multiplex Dogfighter tips?

Hey Bill,
I have a dogfighter and although she looks intimidating she is actually quite easy flyer once you get her up in the air, which incidentaly is the trickiest part. Mine has a tendency to torque roll and nose dive. so I usually have someone else launch it for me with my finger on the elevator to counter. Then again i overpower mine to achieve speed. Once she is up she is very well behaved and tracks straight. Landing is a breeze as there is no hint of stall untill the very end. so I would say go for it.

Re: Multiplex Dogfighter tips?

yes, the dogfighter is a pleasant plane to fly, very fast and very smooth.

launching was a big problem with mine, it would torgue easily 180 degrees in the opposite direction most of the time. Nothing i did on the sticks corrected it until I added about three degrees of right thrust to the motor.

Now I simply give it an underhand push and it flies off with maybe 5-10 degrees of torque at most. Turned an animal into a pleasant machine! couple of washers under the left side of the motor mount.

with an eflite power 10 and a 9/9 apc E-prop it has been GPS measured at 162 kph. Love flying the thing.
