Savage Max from Kavan


SAVAGE MAX is a high performance 3D aerobatic park-flyer made of virtually unbreakable EPP foam for 350-500 W brushless motors. A couple of hours with a bottle of cyano are all you need to finish this model capable of classic pattern aerobatics as well as all 3D stunts! SAVAGE MAX is not just for skilled pilots; on small rates she could be flown by any Sunday flyer who already knows how to do a loop, stall turn and roll. And if something (or your fingers on sticks) goes wrong, thanks to the low all-up weight there usually is not much damage - and even if so, the EPP foam is so easy to repair!

The all-in-one wing EPP foam wing with symmetrical wing section is reinforced with a pair of carbon spars; the pre-cut bays are ready for your servos, indeed. The horizontal part of the fuselage is thoroughly reinforced by a web of carbon spars; the large area vertical part of the fuselage makes the knife edge easy. The plywood firewall is anchored to the foam fuselage with carbon spars as well; the pre-cut bays are ready to accommodate the elevator a rudder servos. The empennage is also made of the EPP foam; halves of the all-moving horizontal tailplane are glued to a carbon tube that rotates freely in 3D printed bearings in the fuselage. The control surface linkage is made of 3D printed horns, plastic clevises and short carbon or steel push rods. The carbon main undercarriage with lightweight foam wheels and EPP pants is secured by 4 bolts to a fibreglass plate anchored to the fuselage with 3D printed plastic holders. The steerable tail wheel assembly consists of 3D printed bracket and lightweight foam wheel.

You will need at least a four channel RC set; a computer radio featuring dual and exponential rates is strongly recommended.

SAVAGE MAX of a Sunday flyer would work nicely with analog micro servos with metal gears like KAVAN GO-13MG, Hitec HS-65MG etc. If you are serious about aerobatics even a little bit, you should go for high speed & torque digital servos like KAVAN GO-1013MG, Hitec HS-5065MG or similar.

We recommend KAVAN PRO 3536-1000, FOXY 3536-1000, Model Motors AXI 2814/16 V2 or similar brushless motors with the APC 11x4.7SF propeller if 3S LiPo battery was used or the APC 10x4.7SF with 4S LiPo.

At least 40A speed controller featuring a powerful switching BEC should be used - especially when high speed & torque digital servos are installed - like the KAVAN PRO-40SB or KAVAN R-50SB.

You can use 3S or 4S LiPo LiPo flight pack 1300-1800 mAh at least 40C.
