All the control surfaces on the Super EZ
are prehinged and ready for flight. Even the
pushrods are preinstalled with the exception
of the elevator, which you connect after you
install the horizontal stabilizer on the fuselage.
;e Super EZ uses the standard “full house”
controls: throttle, elevator, rudder, and ailerons.
;e lack of flaps and retracts simplifies the
assembly process and minimizes the number
of things you, as a modeler, need to be
As mentioned earlier, everything on the
Super EZ is constructed out of foam. ;e
only exceptions are the few ABS items, like
the spinner, the wing hold-down, and the
control horns. Everything comes preattached
and ready for final assembly, and no glue is
required—a nice touch. Everything is attached
with metric screws, which speeds things up
and avoids any potential mess. Most of the
screws are Allen-head types.
Another nice feature is the included quick-release “screws,” which allow you to remove
the wing in a matter of seconds. FMS even
tapered them to match the airfoil of the wing
for a clean look. When building the Super EZ,
I made zero modifications to the intended
design. ;e motor, prop, and spinner on the
Super EZ even come installed. ;e speed
control is prewired, and the motor turns in the
correct direction. Molded-in ducting keeps
everything nice and cool.
;e Super EZ also comes with all graphics
applied, using both paint and decals. ;ere is no
finish work left for you, other than to assemble
the model and fly.
IN THE AIR
;e wheels on the Super EZ are a little on
the small size. For this reason, you will want a
well-manicured grass runway or something
smoother, like packed dirt or pavement. ;e
Super EZ is small and slows down nicely, so you
really only need about a 200-foot runway. ;is
or a decent-size pond without a lot of trees is
all you need for good flying fun.
GENERAL FLIGHT PERFORMANCE
Stability: ;e Super EZ is extremely stable.
FMS designed this plane to fly without
electronic assistance, and it did a great job.
From slow to fast, I always felt in control and
comfortable. I even spent a good portion of my
flight flying low and slow without ever leaving
the perimeter of the runway and without
exceeding 10 feet. ;e Super EZ handled it all
Tracking: As a high-wing model, the Super EZ
will get bu;eted around a little with a breeze
or thermal activity, but overall, it goes where it
Top: All servos come preinstalled and ready for flight.
Above: ;ere is plenty of room for your receiver
and all wiring beneath the wing. Right: ;e ABS
quick-connect system for the wing is a nice touch
and makes installing and removing the wing fast
