Precision Aerobatics is proud to present the second release in the NEXT Generation PA planes. It started with the Bandit, and now comes the Katana MX. The NEXT Generation PA planes allow you to do a lot more than you would expect.Back in the days, you had to choose: do you want an aggressive-flying plane (but be careful to fly it low and slow!) or a slow 3D flyer? Or perhaps you are after a precision flyer? Now, in this NEXT Generation - you can get it all in the one plane! The Katana MX is THE airplane of your dreams! IT WILL DO IT ALL - From precision to high energy to graceful slow and low 3d..
Find it hard to believe? You just gotta fly it.Being a NEXT Generation PA plane means the KMX sustains more energy when flown and by so keeping higher flight speeds which is vital when performing consecutive aerobatics or freestyle maneuvers and allowing sharp and quick turns, resulting in most impressive and breathtaking transitions. Yet, it can, JUST AS WELL, be flown like a big foamy when slow 3D and high AOA maneuvers are executed.Being built using finest grade material, all cut by state-of-the-art laser and CNC machines and utilizing the very latest FiberFusion building techniques(*), the KMX is incredibly lightweight and rigid. Due to the huge control surfaces, featherlike lightweight and the incredibly low wing loading, the KMX is a floater and will respond immediately to your stick inputs. It has so much power that it's easy to get out of trouble - which is crucial when flying slow 3D. This is the reason we specifically designed this model with a very high thrust to weight ratio. You can easily execute hands off Harriers and elevators with just a few clicks of throttle thus making harrier landings super easy even in slight wind. The ability to execute harrier landings makes it ideal for flying in flying fields with exceptionally small landing strips (that would normally be out of the question for another contemporary model of this size).Despite its wingspan being 1" smaller than the Extra MX, it is actually a much larger plane and has a look and feel of a large plane at the field. As any other PA model here too the two wings panels are removable with a CF wing tube and a CF sleeve. The KMX gives you "giant-scale" performance in a convenient and easily transportable package without ever worrying about storage space or vehicle size or having to drive for hours to get to a large enough flying field to fly.Powered by PA Thrust 50 RotorKool equipped motor and PA Quantum 70 Pro ESC with a switching BEC makes the KMX extremely responsive providing absolute control, extreme performance and predictability, so you are able to get out of the most difficult situations with ease - and this builds confidence. Unlike other models in this size category, the KMX is powered by two standard 2200mAh 11.1V packs, so you don't need to get a new charger or buy a battery that is dedicated to only one model in your hangar. The two PA 2200mAh allow for 6 minutes of safe intensive 3D flight. This iPAs package has proven to be the most powerful yet most economical and reliable set up possible. Best of all, you don't even need to know how to select your ESC, motor or battery or even need to learn how to program your ESC. Everything is done for you and all that is required is just to plug and play. With the iPAs package, we have made it as easy as it gets to get it right the first time when it comes to electrics. Not only does the iPAs package make it easy to get it right, it will give you the identical setup (and potential performance) as PA's Team Pilots.
