Difference between RAD MXL and RXL


Recommended Posts

Hi Arcus Flyer

The RXL is a smaller machine.

From the original spec sheets and when new the following data applied:

Static thrust: RXL 43 Kg MXL 47 Kg

Weight (Zero fuel): RXL 15 Kg MXL 17.5 Kg

Prop diameter: RXL 0.9 m MXL 1.05 m

I have recently tested some older MXL's and the best thrust figure attained was 42 Kg so please don't expect an old unit to produce "book" figures. That will all depend on usage and how the machine has been looked after.

Spares will become increasingly difficult to obtain as the cost of stocking them when weighed against the amount sold becomes difficult to sanction. They would always be available, but manufacturing 1 or 2 off a part is prohibitively expensive.

My advise would be to buy a new RAD Arrow or Javelin. But I am biased.
