Relive a classic with this light weight blasa glider with excellent flight characteristics.
The Hobbyking E-Fair glider is a nicely finished and mostly pre-assembled 3CH balsa glider kit. Featuring a pre-built fuselage, wing and tail section, very little is left to complete this model and get it into the air. Pre-installed pushrod tubes make installing the servos and setting up the control surfaces a breeze. With its polyhedral wing design, this model offers very forgiving flight characteristics and will provide you with hours of sloap soaring fun!
The E-Fair glider comes in almost ready to fly form, which means you will need to add your own brushless motor/ESC, servos and radio system. Please see related items below. Specs: Wingspan: 1540mm Wing area: 23.3sq.dm Length 980mm Weight: 545g
Required: 2 x 9g Servos 28mm Brushless Motor 20~30A Brushless ESC 3S 1800~2200mAh Lipoly Your own Tx/Rx
This is quite a nice flyer. maidened today and it soared and powered like a warmliner. Once in the air it was like piece of cotton just floated along, for the price go for it you won't reget the 49.00...
Received my E-Fair a couple weeks ago. Been flying R/C since 1957, gliders since 67. Woodwork and covering are very nice, had to build a canopy frame to hold canopy. Push rods/guides are pure ****, replaced. Used rubber bands/dowels to hold wing on (Yah,I'm Old timey), did not use screws. Expect to fly this for a long tme. Using a Futaba 4-YF 2.5 Ghz, HS-55 servos, 1600 mah Turnigy 2 cell 20-30C, 10A ESC. E-Flight Park 370,1080 KV out-runner, 9/4.5 prop. Only one flight ( 45 min got tired and landed) so far. Will climb vertical till out of sight. Glides fairly well, wing very sharp leading edge,twitchy stall, probably need to move CG forward just a bit more. Handles wind well. Good deal for the money! Would like to see a 120" version of this very attractive model!
Only in how you will end up mounting it, internally or externally. It is helpful to have a little down and right thrust when you mount to counter torque and high thrust. I did a out-runner and modified the nose accordingly. Just be sure you get the CG right and you are going to have more fun than a one arm paper hanger with this nice little glider!
