Precision Aerobatics is proud to present the second release in the NEXT Generation PA planes. It started with the Bandit, and now comes the Katana MX. The NEXT Generation PA planes allow you to do a lot more than you would expect.
Back in the days, you had to choose: do you want an aggressive-flying plane (but be careful to fly it low and slow!) or a slow 3D flyer? Or perhaps you are after a precision flyer? Now, in this NEXT Generation – you can get it all in the one plane! The Katana MX is THE airplane of your dreams! IT WILL DO IT ALL - From precision to high energy to graceful slow and low 3d.. Find it hard to believe? You just gotta fly it
Being a NEXT Generation PA plane means the KMX sustains more energy when flown and by so keeping higher flight speeds which is vital when performing consecutive aerobatics or freestyle maneuvers and allowing sharp and quick turns, resulting in most impressive and breathtaking transitions. Yet, it can, JUST AS WELL, be flown like a big foamy when slow 3D and high AOA maneuvers are executed.
Being built using finest grade material, all cut by state-of-the-art laser and CNC machines and utilizing the very latest FiberFusion® building techniques(*), the KMX is incredibly lightweight and rigid. Due to the huge control surfaces, featherlike lightweight and the incredibly low wing loading, the KMX is a floater and will respond immediately to your stick inputs. It has so much power that it’s easy to get out of trouble - which is crucial when flying slow 3D. This is the reason we specifically designed this model with a very high thrust to weight ratio. You can easily execute hands off Harriers and elevators with just a few clicks of throttle thus making harrier landings super easy even in slight wind. The ability to execute harrier landings makes it ideal for flying in flying fields with exceptionally small landing strips (that would normally be out of the question for another contemporary model of this size).
Regardless of your piloting level, this plane will bring a smile to your face. If you are a beginner to intermediate looking for sport flying, or perhaps starting on 3D you’ll be amazed at how forgiving this plane is when it comes to flying beyond the stall! While others would have stalled and eaten dirt you will still be happily flying.
Although the Addiction is a mid-sized aircraft (close to the physical dimensions of the Katana MD) it is designed to be powered by an economical lightweight 20 size iPAs-drive setup. This set up makes the Addiction extremely responsive providing absolute control, so you can get out of the most difficult situations with ease. You will be naturally flying much lower and more aggressively than ever before.
The Addiction translucent covering reveals our unique FiberFusion® construction which contributes greatly to the strength of the airframe without sacrificing on weight. Like any other Precision Aerobatics model, the Addiction is built using finest grade material, all cut by state-of-the-art laser and CNC machines.
The two wing halves are removable making it easily transportable for a model of this size. The wings are joined together with a CF wing tube and CF sleeve that makes the Addiction a compact and durable aircraft.
When the Addiction was released a few years back it was all about inspiring pilots
of all skill levels to perform 3D like the pros. The Addiction has quickly become a true all time favorite and converted many sport flyers to 3D addicts.
While the ground is STILL the limit, we have grown the Addiction-X to match your growth in hardcore 3D skills. So if you crave for a bigger dose of the rush to go even further - the 50” Addiction-X was made for you! But don’t be mistaken – you don’t need to graduate from the Addiction in order to fly the Addiction-X. The Addiction-X can most certainly be your first 3D model.
As with any release from Precision Aerobatics, this model is not just a larger version of the original 40” Addiction but rather a new and exciting aerodynamic design. We have spent well over a year in the design and testing of this model enhancing the Addiction’s design features and taking advantage of the granted stability that comes with the larger size airframe. The result is a featherweight model that is incredibly stable, easy to fly and is capable of performing precision 3D maneuvers even in windy conditions.

Precision Aerobatics Extra 260 ARF
While the Extra is larger than the PA Katana MD and features fully air-foiled tail section it is actually LIGHTER than the Katana MD! This means the new 260 is now the lightest model in its size category, yet it is one of the robust models available on the market today.
Designed with a technical challenge of having both precision and extreme agility in mind, the PA Extra 260 will perform the most demanding aerobatics maneuver with the finesse of precision to boot, providing unparallel predictability that will take your aerobatic performance to another level.

After many requests from our customers, we are finally proud to release our new 58” FiberFusion® Extra MX – Beyond the MAX!
In PA tradition, we approached this design from a fresh view point, asking ourselves (and our customers) what would make this ship the best available in its class. The answer lies in the performance, which is a direct result of the design and the matching drive system.
Keeping our airframes light and rigid was always a target for us, but with the Extra MX we have broken all records!
While the Extra MX features a larger wing area than most of the airframes available in this size category it is at least 20oz lighter than its competitors, yet is it one of the robust models around.
If you demand high performance precision flying, high energy 3D/freestyle aerobatics, extremely light and rigid Biplane, the Ultimate AMR is the machine of choice for you.
Forget what you have heard about bipes..Hard to handle? Stalls easily? a handful to land? well CERTAINLY NOT WITH THIS ONE. Many months of design, testing and experimentation brought about this exceptional model.
The new Ultimate AMR features the revolutionary FiberFusion® construction making it the lightest electric built up Biplane produced to date in this size – about 38.45oz ready to fly (!!!) yet is rigid enough to withstand the most extreme high energy maneuvers we know you will be tempted to try!
FiberFusion® is an engineered construction method, combining carbon fiber, balsa and ply in a way never seen before, utilizing the strengths of the fibers within each raw material, with the end result being lighter, stronger, more rigid aircraft that fly like nothing else!
The XR-52 is an exciting addition to the NEXT Generation PA series of planes, giving you a perfect balance between precision flying and slow 3D capabilities. Versatility is the name of the game: with just a swap of a prop you get a completely different flying plane.
Use a Vox 13x5 wooden propeller for amazing low and slow 3D performance, for sport flying or a smaller field. Swap to a Vox 13x6.5 wooden propeller and get ready to experience the ultimate show-stopping Freestyle machine!
For this model, the aim was to take the best looking bird in the sky and enhance its flying characteristics - to suit more flyers, from intermediate through advanced - all based on our customers feedback.
Borrowing only styling lines from our successful PA Bandit we approached this project with an otherwise clean slate. The new XR-52 is not only larger but features unique custom-designed airfoils, a longer fuselage and numerous other design elements that were completely engineered specifically for this project - giving the XR-52 a fresh and exciting feel. The unique design expands and enhances the flight envelope, allowing you to perform manoeuvres one would only expect from a much larger model.
Get ready for a new experience at the flying field: feel connected. If you love our Katana MX, or the XR-52 - you really need to fly this one - the XR-61 takes the best of both. It is the largest plane currently available in the PA line and is the most accurate in the PA range.
