Stevens Aero Micro Max


Stevens Aero microMAX 103

The 'microMax 103' captures the simple lines, easy construction and delightful performance of the home built full-size MiniMax. Designed for the Parkzone Vapor or Spektrum AR6400 receiver modules.

The Team Mini Max was designed by Wayne Ison and marketed through TEAM aircraft. This highly successful mid-wing strut braced single seat rag wing design found favor among many home builders. TEAM eventually folded but the design lives on and has shuffled around from business to business (currently being sold through www.teammini-max.com).

microMax is modelled on an older Mini Max three-view as published in Bill Hannan's Peanuts & Pistachios resource and it should be noted that this three-view deviates somewhat from current full scale production. Stevens Aero chose to keep these deviations as they lend a unique look to the aircraft and, being a home built design, there's great variance in completed airframes as each builder offers their unique twist on finishing items such as cowl, wing tips, and empennage.

The kit includes:

  • Precision laser cut parts
  • Full size plan set
  • Photo illustrated step-by-step assembly instructions
  • Hardware package including push-rods, control horns, struts, pre-cut acetate wind screen and wheels

AR6400 type receivers require either a mode 4 Tx or a Tx mix to map the aileron stick onto the rudder channel. The Futaba and Spektrum Micro receiver options comprises separate receiver and servos. Installation differs from that shown in the instructions for Vapor and AR64xx receivers - the servos are mounted on the fuselage wall using the supplied servo mounting tape.
