MX Sprint
The Legend Continues!

Mvc-017x.jpg (130835 bytes)



Designed for the entry-level pilot while retaining the
excitement & handling a proven pilot demands.

WE LISTENED TO YOU...

We have taken note of the many suggestions and comments received by phone, mail and in the field. We combined this information with our own market research and designed the aircraft "you wanted." The MX Sprint has extremely fast roll response and handles crosswinds easily with its conventional three-axis controls. Yet it retains the docile and predictable slow flight characteristics that made the original MX famous. With its combination of great flying performance, Quicksilver's world-renowned quality and a six-month written limited warranty, the MX Sprint sells itself!

The legend continues...and now you can be a part of it.
