SHARK - the FUN flyer! As inventors of the world-famous EasyStar, we decided that our next aeroplane would be a modern, user-friendly design which would guarantee a one hundred percent FUN factor. We wanted to create a model which could grow as the owner's skills developed, and would never become boring. The outcome is something very special - the MULTIPLEX SHARK! The SHARK looks terrific in its unusual colour scheme, and it flies fantastically well. In its standard form the model is controlled using rudder and elevator, but it is prepared for the aileron option. With the recommend Li-BATT FX 3/1-950 flight battery a minimum flying time of 10 min is possible! It takes just a few moments to fit an undercarriage to the aeroplane, and with a further "click" it is transformed into a float-plane which provides loads of fun - on snow as well as water. We think every MULTIPLEX SHARK owner should have this optional accessory. And for the aesthetically demanding modeller we can supply a stylish protective landing skid. When all the flying fun's over, the SHARK can very easily be dismantled and packed back into the original carton. Highly practical! • Benign flying qualities, ideal for the beginner; very robust construction • Powerful brushless motor • Clear canopy with racing-style pilot • Wide range of optional upgrades (protective landing skid, undercarriage, floats, aileron upgrade, MULTIlight) • Original carton doubles as transport box

A first, must have, RC plane for beginners, or a great addition for advanced flyers

For the price I am exceptionally happy with the Shark. Very good quality and all around nice looking plane. Flys great as a 3 channel, and even better with added ailerons. This plane is a great park flyer because it's not too big yet large enough to fly with some wind. I added 9 gram ailerons servos, a 1300 3S, Swift run cam 2, cricket 200mW videoTx, and spironet antenna for a great flying FPV platform. Even with the added weight I still fly 1 notch below half throttle on my DX7. The plane floats nicely and lands soft as a feather. I am truly happy with this plane. Plan on buying a second one as a backup in the event I crash mine. mrstevedfx on Youtube

Got it during black Friday sale. Nice looking plane, got it for a Christmas present for my son so it is still in the box, nicely packaged. I'm sure it will fly great.

This model (RR) is easy enough to fly with some supports for set up and fine tuning if you don’t have a ready to flight plane. It needs almost full throttle to get it up in the air. At full throttle, the plane tends to pull to the right just a bit, a stick control correction is needed. It glides well, but not floating like a sail plane. I intend to upgrade the plane with ailerons for easier to control, then it should be good. As of now, I have the rudder channel plugged in to the aileron channel for easier to control. This review was based on my first flight of this plane. Flying will be better as time goes by.
The Amazing MPX Shark
Posted by Emerio Diaz on 12th Oct 2017
This is my first MPX model, even though I have been looking at the Fun Cub XL for some time now. At first, I thought, well, it's just another little expensive flyer, but when I saw the attention to detail in the packaging it changed my perspective. The model is superbly built and engineered, and some of the features you find like: pushrod connectors etc. you would expect to find in larger models. The Elapor foam [new to me] is superb; there is no gatoring effect at all, and it appears to be very tough, feel nice and tight, and very slick_a nice feature
considering it is a belly lander. I have not test flown the aircraft yet since I received it yesterday [Oct. 11] but I can't wait, and if it flies as well as it is built, it will be a very, very nice plane to load on the back of your car and have some fun with it. As an aside, at first when I saw the manual, I was struck by the quality of the paper itself; it is written in five languages: German, English, French, Italian, and Spanish. Upon initial browsing I noticed the apparent lack of illustration, but the manual is so well written that you don't actually need a plethora of illustrations [well done], and it even comes with a complaint form_something you don't see every day, which shows to me the company's commitment to their products. To that end, the company Hitec weekender warehouse is great... there are always a phone call away, which is very rare these days, and the staff is very friendly and helpful. My only complaint is that I wish that there would be optional parts available for this little gem_perhaps in the near future you would offer the Shark II with more options. I have to say that I am very pleased with the purchase of this product, and like I said: can't wait to maiden the bird.
Excellent Quality Model at a Great Pricee

Like all Multiplex Models it is very well engineered..very easy assembly.This model can easily be converted to a 4 channel w/ ailerons.Cut-outs are already in the wing for the servo mount.

I had this plane before and it is an excellent product. Goodd that I can own one again, since it has been discontinued in Canada.
