MoYu's latest installment in the RS line is their RS3 Pyraminx, following the same moniker as their renowned RS3 M 3x3s. Notably, the RS3 Pyraminx is available in both a standard and a "MagLev" version, bringing the newest implementation of MagLev as seen in their flagship MagLev pyraminx, but at an entry level price.

Included with the RS 3 Pyraminxes are the standard MoYu puzzle accessories, including a screwdriver, dual-adjustment tool and spare dual-adjustment piece.
To access the dual-adjustment system, turn the Pyraminx's tip (corner) 45°, and pull on the tip carefully. The whole tip will come off and reveal the dual adjustment system.
To adjust the screw depth, use the screwdriver and rotate counter-clockwise or clockwise to make the adjustment. To adjust the spring strength or magnet distance in the MagLev variant, use the blue dual adjustment tool and rotate counter-clockwise. When adjusting, use one hand to hold the piece that houses the magnets, as if the piece turns adjusting will not be possible.

Turning feel and Performance
In the video review, Cameron said
The tips [of both variants] feel identical to me.
Turning is super quiet and dry sound, it has kind of a hollow sound... the MagLev version is a lot easier to turn than the standard version [out of the box].
As for performance, Cameron said
Unsurpisingly, the corner cutting is a little better on the standard than the MagLev.
However, this likely could be the out-of-the-box settings, where with some fine-tuning, the corner-cutting could be improved.
Out of the box, the turning is quiet and dry sounding. To add some more substance and remove the dry feel, we recommend lubricant such as martian to smoothen out the puzzle.
Martian Lubricant is our best-selling lubricant and anyone who has tried it understands why. The fast, moderately controllable, soft feel ticks all the boxes for most speed cubers and is just simply great. Recommended for: All puzzles (especially big cubes)… >> SHOP PRODUCT <<
To slow down the fast-turning MagLev variant, Cosmos can slow down the puzzle without changing the turning feel. However, if both removing the dry feel and sound alongside slowing down the puzzle is desired, a thicker lubricant such as Nebula or Galaxy will achieve said effect.
Cosmos Lubricant is changing the way speed cubers control their turning! Most controllable lubricants are very "gummy" which completely changes the turning feel of your speed cube. Cosmos is special because you are able to achieve an extremely controllable turning… >> SHOP PRODUCT <<
If you like buttery, controllable turning, Nebula Lubricant is for you. No need to worry about "gunking" up your cube when using Nebula -- just apply and enjoy! Recommended for: 2x2, 3x3, Pyraminx, Skewb, Square-1 Frequently asked questions Q: How… >> SHOP PRODUCT <<
Overall, we are excited to see MoYu continue to create more puzzles that include MagLev at lower prices, lowering the barrier to entry for flagship-quality puzzles for more cubers. It will be interesting to see whether or not this puzzles is picked up by fast pyraminx solvers, especially considering the price of the flagship MoYu WeiLong pyraminx, which also features MagLev for $6 more.
