Designed by Edward Marganski the MDM-1 Fox saw its maiden flight in 1993. Designed as a fully aerobatic glider the 2 seater Fox soon garnered a reputation as an excellent aerobatics training ship. Reputed as the only glider capable of full on aerobatics while carrying 2 people (+7/-5 g).
Top Models Fox is a purely aerobatic model that can also fly in relatively light lift conditions, making it an excellent choice for the pilot transitioning into large scale soaring. It has a broad speed range and a solid inherent stability. The wings are equipped with ailerons, flaps and air-brakes, giving the pilot the necessary control to land in diverse situations as well as having camber, flaperons, reflex and crow at their fingertips during flight.
Construction of the Fox is traditional and strong. The wings are carbon reinforced, obechi sheeted and foam cored, with a unique locking latch which eases wing installation and disassembly. Both the wing and the fuselage have pre installed wiring harnesses, terminated in 15 pin D-sub plugs. This saves both building time and set up / take down time in the field. The fiberglass fuselage is smooth and reflective. It feels sturdy in the hands: flip a couple of scale-like latches and the canopy opens, revealing a detailed interior, replete with scale seats and instrument panels. The Fox's fixed landing wheel, tailwheel, rudder and tow release are also pre-installed, greatly reducing the assembly time of this model, down to servo and receiver installation!
So there you have it. A beautifully finished, joy to fly, glider for a reasonable amount of money.
