Description

Designed by UK expert modeller Jonathan Wells the Magnus Hotliner is a tough high performance 1.5m (60") all molded glass and carbon electric glider with a great speed range and forgiving handling characteristics. The model looks fantastic with a good surface finish and a practical easy to fit-out design. A slope racer version is also available.

The two piece wing is available in glass and carbon layups. The glass version has a fair amount of carbon and is very strong. The full carbon version is about 50g heavier and is extremely strong and rigid and will be ideal for high power setups. The wings are kept in place with a very substantial carbon joiner. The tailplane is removable making the model very easy to store and transport. The electric fuselage is glass with carbon reinforcement and is wider than the slope racer version, allowing a substantial motor and battery to be installed. The large canopy hatch gives great access to the front, making for a very easy powertrain installation and quick battery changes. The elevator servo is under a hatch in its own pocket molded into the fuselage, just to the rear of the wing trailing edge. This makes for a very short elevator control run and also leaves the front fuselage free for the electrics.

The complete accessory pack includes all pushrods, ply wing servo mounts (for X08 family servos), control horns, a ply elevator fuselage servo mount, colour coded wing servo covers and a glass firewall. No formal build instructions are available but this excellent build log of the slope version should answer most questions.

The complete accessory pack includes all pushrods, ply wing servo mounts (for X08 family servos), control horns, a ply elevator fuselage servo mount, colour coded wing servo covers and a glass firewall. See the link below the videos for English build instructions (of the glider version) and this excellent Magnus build log by the designer. Also check out the Facebook Magnus group. Note that although the surface finish is generally good the fit and finish of the model is not up to that of a top price European model. Small bumps and fit problems are normal at this price-point.

Recommended Servos
Elevator (10-12mm) MKS DS6100, MKS HV6100, Blue Bird BMS-126WV, Blue Bird BMS-127WV, KST DS145, KST DS215MG, KST X10-710, KST MS320
Flap (9mm) KST X08H, KST X08H Plus, KST X08, KST X08 Plus, KST HS08A, KST HS08B, MKS DS6100, MKS HV6100, MKS HV6110, Blue Bird BMS-125
Aileron (8mm) KST X08H, KST X08H Plus, KST X08, KST X08 Plus, KST HS08A, KST HS08B, Blue Bird BMS-A10V
The wing is very thin and 8 mm servos are required for the ailerons, and ideally 9 mm for the flaps. 10 mm thick flap servos can perhaps be used but the servo covers will need adjusting.


Magnus Powertrain Recommendations
XPower F2925/8 Windy 3S 2-3 Ah LiPo, 12x8 prop, 60A ESC
Mega 16/25/3 3S 2-3 Ah LiPo, GM9x5 prop, 60A ESC
Both of these will need a forward RC installation to obtain correct CG.

Neat little park flyer

I was thrilled to find this superb little chuck around model was neatly moulded to a crisp and strong standard offering amazing value for money too. I am enjoying the quick installation at the moment ..beats a Valenta model in all respects ..as it is a JW design I know I have invested in a pedigree performance & I look forward to thrashing it next week.I do hope Jonathan & the team offer more designs which I will also buy..Neil sent it to me post haste & of course all was packaged safely as usual.I used an MVVS motor to ensure I have unlimited vertical urge..need to do the design justice in the electron discharge department.

Magnus Hotliner

Great service from Neil as always
Only downside was the absence of any build notes for this electric version.
Otherwise excellent build quality and canít wait to be able to get out and fly it
