This 2 meter wingspan glider takes 15 minutes to assemble and lasts a lifetime! The wings and tail are made from tough EPO foam. However, the fuselage is made from a really strong blow moulded nylon skin with plywood formers, making it almost indestrucatable. Usually reserved for baby toys*. The virtually indestrucatable fuselage is smooth and ridgid yet still light enough for the glider to perform. Both the main wing and tail are screwed into place and the two wing halves have a carbon fiber rod for added strength. The main wing includes 1 servo per aileron for strong control surface movement plus there is a pre-moulded slot so you can add your own flaps later. All 4 9g servos, speed controller and brushlessoutrunner are included. Just add your own receiver and battery to be flight ready! This really is a super strong glider that takes 15 minutes to put together and virtually indestructible.

Got this in kit form and its a little ripper as shanesmadhouse said,.....its like a bigger version of the the dynamic s but easier to fly, I put a hacker A30-14l outrunner in the nose and use this for night flying, I have 6 x meters long led strips with a 3s 950mah lipo for lights and 2200 lipo for motor.
I own 8 gliders costing from $50-$1000 and rate this in my top three.
If you've already got a motor,esc and servo's lying around buy 2 in kit form so you have one as a spare.
looks good and big too.
PRODUCT ID: FP-11x8 i use this its good with ntm 3536 1400 2200 lipo

Received mine today.
No outside damage, very well packed and no missing pieces.
Comes with Y wire for ailerons, extra servo accesories, extra push rods for flaps (just rods, no extra clevis), instructions and extra cone to fly without motor.
- Servos are fast and strong.
- Wood reinforcered wings, elevator and rudder
- Hard plastic chasis
- ESC placed under battery, with some tape. Motor wires are taped too
- Battery compartiment comes with velcro belt.
-Included clevis are fragile.
-Stickers are hard to place as they are very thin.
-Wing servo wires are bit short. Comes a problem if u dont wanna use Y wire and plug them in separate channels. In this case u need to extend them manually.
-ESC battery plug ends with a T-Connector. A con for me as all turnigy batteries that fit this plane come with the xt-60.
-Change or reinforce clevis with shrink tube for example.
Feel free to ask me any questions about plane or if u need some extra photos.
Im planning to make a video and upload it aswell.

10/10 for the packaging ! Nothing mooved during the shipping. I then understand than 2 clevis was broken before to be shipped... This thing (the poor plastic clevis) is so fragile and you need to change all of them before your first flight... Or it could be your last ! The 2 wings do not fit perfectly and it was P.. in the As.. to insert the screw. But as I do not have clevis for this size, I will have to wait for them...
To be continued...

Just received my glider and i have to say that upon first inspection I'm very impressed. the Phoenix 2000 is well built and the structural support inside the wings was great, aluminum square rod tubing with a 3x2x25mm carbon fiber rod inside. The Blown plastic body is as advertised and seems near indestructible.
As for power there is plenty of it, i thought that the included motor wouldn't be enough so i ordered a second higher 2800 kv motor and a 30 amp hk blue series esc but when flying the glider for the first time and pulled a complete loop without using full throttle i knew it wasn't a necessary upgrade. So far I have no complaints but would recommend a few retrofits like adding a foam front wheel to the existing bulge on the bottom of the body for better landings so that nosing into the ground on rougher surfaces isnt a problem. The propeller is good.. but shatters easily so order extras with your purchase I'll get back with the correct size and the differences when I install the new motor and esc for kicks, I am also running a 2200 3s and the cg is a little front heavy but can be compensated with a little finesse and relocation. With my current setup I got concurrent 25 min flight times. Also be sure to order cf or fg rods to reinforce the outer 8 inches of the wings as they take the most beatings in a crash, and have no reinforcing like the rest of the wing

I was offered to buy this glider for 77.47 us. i ordered it and waited for approval. It never came. I reordered it at a cost of 87.00 us. Is this your std procedured when u offer it at a lower cost. The money is not at question, it is your way of enticing customers to buy the product. i now know it is on b/o from the usa w/h so why did u offer me the lesser price when u did not even have the product to ship
