Infinity Evo 😍

Recommended Posts

Here are 2 of the amazing new Infinity Evo F5j models side by side. One is a light (1300g) and one is a Performance (1600g). Fantastic handling and very nimble. Can turn on a sixpence like a big DLG

With a 4s 750W drive system the Performance Evo still comes in at 1600g and is perfect for windier conditions. Vertical rolling climbs under full power and very precise handling make it a really fun model to fly. Yet slow it up and find a thermal and it will soar as well as all but the biggest and lightest

The long moment arm gives all the stability and easiness to fly of a cross tail but with the crisp handling and low drag of a V tail. I have not had a model handle better than this one. Ever.

Some more Infinity Evo details. It is also available in a X-tail configuration but the V is proving the more popular.

The Evo comes as with all plugs and wiring looms as standard. In the wing it is totally done for you at the factory and the wires are tacked in place along their lengths so no wing wire rattle.

For the fuselage you have to install it yourself but this is very easy as there is a pre-molded hole ready to accept it.

The wings already come installed with servorahmen IDS. None of this "IDS" friendly business where you have to do it all yourself. The difficult part has been totally done for you  and using jigs set in the mold to ensure perfect repeatable accuracy. Because the new Evo has big flaps and ailerons the larger 1.4mm pin Midi IDS pushrod set is used which makes great sense and gives a very strong slop free set up.

As it comes from the factory each servo bay comes with a female servo connector taped in place and the plastic IDS pushrods already hooked up at the control surface end. All you have to do is fit in your servo frames and you're done. Very easy and new Evos now come with servo frames included in the price.

Pre-cut servo covers are also included. No trimming needed whatsoever and a perfect fit!

Sounds great. Jigging the ids at that size is no easy task.

Most of the work needed to get one of these in the air is in the fuselage. All simple stuff but it needs planning as i found both my Evos have the potential to be tail heavy if you are not careful. That is why you will see the light Evo has plain carbon tails as any paint, particularly the heavier neon reflex paints, will add weight at the tail end.

The above pic is my Performance model which came out bang on the perfect CG but using Thunder Power Rampage 4s 1300mah batteries. Any chosen battery weighing less than these (i think 140g?)  will need the battery ahead of the servos or a bigger than normal motor. On my light Evo i have the battery (84g Nano tech plus 4s 650mah's) in front of the servos.

A nice quality alloy motor mount is now included with all Infinities. They are not as nice as Wixy's RC metalbitz ones and you have to drill them yourself wheras Grahams cone pre drilled and cnc'd out to help cooling. But these suffice but next time i will be using the RC metalbitz ones as i prefer them.

Here is a pic of the Evo Light with with the battery in front of the servos configuration. I would think most builds will need to be like this on all versions of tne Evo unless using a relatively heavy battery or >110g motor. With my combination i get a very light set up (esc 20g, 4s lipo 84g and motor 77g) yet still manage approx 450W @ 30A .

Just to start finishing  the Infinity Evo story they come as standard with two wing joiners. One has more dihedral and the other less dihedral so you can tune it for handling and the conditions. They also come with a full set of ballast and an extremely nice set of wing and tail bags.

In terms of quality and fit & finish the Infinity range has always been reasonably good. Going back a number of years sometimes the joiners needed dressing for best fit or the incidence peg holes in the wing slightly relieving but the quality of lamination and surface finish was always pretty good.

But as we have gone from the original Infinity to Infinity NG and now the NG to the Evo the quality and fit and finish has also developed. What we have now with the Evo is a model that was always pretty good but is now easily on par with the very best standard that any manufacturer anywhere is able to provide. 

So if you are after a model that thrives in active air and can work low level thermal bubbles very effectively by turning efficiently within its own wingspan  then the Infinity is for you. Nimble and precise it is also a lot of fun to fly. A lot of fun 🤗
