Summary

The full scale Millennium Master was designed for high efficiency cross-country flight, while maintaining thrilling fighter-like performance and unlimited visibility. Key requirements for this mission are stable handling, smooth tracking and a shape that offers minimal disturbance to the air as it flies. Those same characteristics also make for a great model flyer and Flyzone has successfully capitalized on that recipe with this version.

We tested the Tx-R option and mated it to a Futaba 8FGA Super using Tactic’s AnyLink module for control. AnyLink offers seamless compatibility between the Tactic receiver and Futaba transmitter. With the motor, servos and receiver pre-installed, the Tx-R edition reduces your prep time on the workbench to an absolute minimum. The compact Aero-cell foam airframe is beautifully molded and finished, a faithful replica of its inspiration. This is a model that looks great, travels well and uses affordable batteries, letting you take to the air whenever the mood strikes. If you already have a receiver and flight battery available, a Rx-R version is also available.

A quick snapshot on this one shows high marks all around. It looks great and flies wonderfully in the hands of anyone comfortable with a full-house, four-channel model. The efficient power system pulls the Flyzone Millennium Master into the air almost as soon as you advance the throttle and offers thrilling performance sure to satisfy any pilot. You will easily find great ground handling, high speed passes, stable inverted flight, smooth turns, traditional aerobatics and more as you explore its flight envelope. The light airframe also provides honest, slow-speed handling, allowing smooth, stabilized approaches and easy landings on the stable tricycle landing gear.
