What's new



 The Maxout is a series of FAC embryo endurance model designs. This is a highly developed set of designs which have very competitive performance. Mine have won 1st and 2nd place at the Raeford events. I've heard news of other folk's Maxouts winning in contests they entered as well, so it's not just me.

 For those who want to build a Maxout, go to to find plans for the Maxout IV.

Below you can see the finished Maxout V which I ultimately lost during one of my early morning trim fields when it drifted off the field. Best flights were over 3 minutes in dead air.

Here is my newest Maxout IV, My fourth model of this version. It was lost after landing in thick woods over 1 1/2 miles from the launch site despite successful DT operation.

Justin Steedly's Maxout IV won 2nd place at the spring 2005 Raeford contest.

So I know it's not a Maxout, but this is one great model. It's a Featherlight, the best embryo model I've produced. Weight is 6.5 g and it flies almost 4 minutes in dead air. Took second at Raeford this fall thanks to my stupidity. The guy that timed my flights can tell you that I was really bungling stuff up that day. It's a wonder I won anything.
