In celebration of a decade in constant production, this record-breaking best-seller airplane has now been updated and its Version 2 is being released. In designing and developing the Addiction series, our main target was you - the pilot! We aim to build your confidence, make you a better pilot and inspire you to challenge yourself and succeed in maneuvers that you could only dream of before. The ADX is not just a larger version of the 40" Addiction. We approached it as both a part of a series, and as a stand-alone plane with its own unique flight characteristics, based on the input and feedback from thousands of Addiction and Addiction X flyers over the years.

Version 2 of the Addiction X features:
" Unique and enhanced aerodynamic design allowing much faster flying-speed for high energy and precision flying, without compromising the phenomenal slow 3D capabilities that the ADX is known for.
" New construction using PA most up-to-date innovative FiberFusion techniques - more solid than ever!
" Custom-made new airfoils further expand its flight envelope
" More powerful iPAs set up - 24 poles Thrust 45 Revo motor (rear mounted with CF X mount) combined with NXT80-HV digital servos for a completely new level of performance, never seen in the Addiction X before.
" Factory-ready for night flying - extending your flying hours into the best time of the day, when temperature and wind drops.
" Includes light harness custom made, pre-soldered and ready to use.
" New awesome solid white color scheme and checkers on bottom wing as so many of our fans requested, for better visibility.
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, as well as high energy maneuvers and precision-flying at its best.
The combination of its extreme lightweight (low wing loading) and state-of-the-art aerodynamic design makes the Addiction-X fly slower than a turtle walking through peanut butter! (LOL). This gives the flyer ample time to think and act. Due to the huge control surfaces, the Addiction-X will respond immediately to your stick inputs, which is crucial when flying slow 3D. These factors make it perfect for learning 3D.
Ever dreamed of hovering in your first flight? - Now the dream can become a reality! Not only that - you'll be able to choose your spot and hover above it! Torque roll, reverse torque rolls and the tightest waterfalls will all come naturally and it will land at less than walking pace!
Similar to the original Addiction, the Addiction-X harriers exceptionally well in both upright and inverted positions and is perfect to learn harrier figure eights and spot landings. Stationary flat spins are exceptionally easy to do, meaning you can transition from a regular harrier or inverted harrier to a stationary spin at any height, without losing altitude.
The Addiction X is capable of doing the most amazing high alpha (AOA) knife edge, and tightest knife edge loops you have ever seen in an airplane this size. The overall aerodynamic design and incredible rudder authority means zero coupling in KE so you could fly Knife Edge all day long just holding the rudder stick. You can change KE direction and even do knife edge waterfalls, all with ease.
The Addiction-X gains airspeed rapidly from stall position which allows awesome transitions between maneuvers that adds to the amazing 3D display. Unlike many other 3D models the Addiction-X is also surprisingly precise and tracks extremely well, even in windy conditions. It is sure to impress not only you, but everyone else at the flying field.

New in the Version 2 of the Addiction X is the higher energy maneuvers - the V2 excels in faster snap rolls, more precise point rolls, high speed knife edge circles and even tighter knife edge spins and blenders.
While the Addiction 3D 40" was all about inspiring pilots of all skill levels to perform 3D like the pros, the ADX will match your growth in hardcore 3D skills. If you crave for a bigger dose of the rush to go even further, the 50" Addiction-X v2 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.

iPAs Set Up
Looks can be deceiving and although the Addiction X feature a 50" wing span it is longer than the our 58" Katana MX and seems just as large - this means it is the largest model on the market to be flown using a 3S 2200mAh pack with great power for 3D flying.
When you see it in person, you'll be surprise that this huge airframe is powered by an economical lightweight 45 size iPAs setup and a 2200mAh 3S LiPo.
We have also tested numerous propellers and ended up with one size larger wooden propeller to yield the best performance out of this model/motor/battery combination. The VOX 15x6 propeller brings the Addiction-X to life and provides outstanding power. This powerful set up and extreme throws especially engineered to allow superior thrust to weight ratio, that make the Addiction-X extremely responsive providing absolute control, so you can get out of the most difficult situations with ease. The classic T40X propeller can also be used.
The Addiction-X's striking color schemes are very visible in the sky and attracts everyone's attention at the field. The translucent covering reveals our unique FiberFusion® construction which contributes greatly to the strength of the airframe without sacrificing on weight. Shaun Vanunu our chief engineer outdid himself yet again, and the discerning modeler will find himself gazing in awe through the covering at the unique construction features of this model. The Addiction X V2 is also available in white solid scheme as requested by our fans.
Similar to other PA models, the Addiction-X is built using finest grade material, all cut by state-of-the-art laser and CNC machines. 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-X a compact and durable aircraft.
So, if you feel that you have had just about enough with flimsy foamies or are still struggling to learn that seemingly illusive hover or torque roll or if you are already addicted to the Addiction 3D, this is certainly THE plane for you, but you should know - looking so good can be addictive!

Following PA tradition this model too gives the word QUALITY a whole new meaning. From the design to the construction, the hardware and the level of finish - the attention to detail is second to none
The Addiction-X is a TRUE ARF, 99% built for you in our factory:
" Pre installed CF anti rotation pins
" Fiberglass pre cut cowling reinforced with carbon fiber. No cutting is required! The cowling aerodynamic design (intakes, outtakes), clever motor box design and two large air baffles allow airflow to efficiently cool the motor, battery and ESC.
" Pre-fabricated tinted canopy and hatch is one unit attached to the model with very strong magnets. No canopy trimming or gluing is required.
" Pre-drilled stiff CF landing gear and pre-installed blind nuts in the fuselage allow a quick and trouble free undercarriage installation.
" Extremely robust Pre glued motor box with the correct thrust line already built in.
" CNC Machined pre cut firewall. Simply bolt your motor on!
" CNC machined metal clevises and German made ball links for smooth and safe control
" pre cut fiberglass wheel pants with ply mounting plate (pre-installed in the mould)
" The brief assembly is a joy and most modelers will have it set up in one evening.
