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 molded nylon skin with plywood formers, making it almost indestructible, this is usually reserved for baby toys*. The virtually indestructible fuselage is smooth and rigid 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-molded 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 is virtually indestructible.
Slope flying with a glider version.
My set up is 2 hxt 900 in the fuselage and 4 Turnigy tgy 9025 mg in the wing
Put a hinge at the button of the rudder and reinforce the ailerons and flaps hinges with blenderm tape and you have a nice and cool glider/ motor glider.
il mio Phoenix2000 era completo di tutto.. .tranne dei servi FLAPS, quindi per completare il Tuo Phoenix
hai bisogno di 6 microservi magari i "Turnigy TGY-113MG".
Per il Motore, puoi montare il "Turnigy 2632 Brushless Motor 1000kv", per il variatore "Hobby King 30A ESC 3A UBEC". ed infine l'elica ci va una retraibile 10x6 con l'ogiva 2,3mm per l'asse e 40mm di diametro esterno. Inoltre una batteria da 1800mA 3s 30C.
Please complete the full set that is part of the glider

Hey, i am confused between buying Walrus and this, i want to know which one is real fast. As i India the winds are very high. Can aso consult which one i should go for if i want a Glider and a very fast plane all in one ?
Hi Kaushal, this is a very fast glider. There is 'You Tube' footage of this glider (fitted with a camera) keeping up with a speedboat on the river, if you take a look at previous discussions, you will find it. I actually installed the flap servo's on mine to help slow it down. Hope this helps.
Ok, but the more KV motor it is, the more powerful speed will be...right ? This plane is just 1050kv and Bixler is 1900kv so Bixler will be much faster than this one........ ? Also, pls give the link i cant find it.
Hi Kaushal, more power does not necessarily mean more speed. More power equals added weight to a model which can slow it down. Also this is a glider, so added weight will bring it down faster which defeats the purpose. Suggest you purchase a 'Warbird' if you want speed and power. The motor power in this model is ample for this glider as this glider is very light. The link for the video is below in discussions. It is titled, 'Boat chasing with RC Glider'. ** click on the discussions link after last discussion point to see it. All the best.

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

Hey H.K.! The Phoenix is a nice aircraft, but you urgently need to replace those very poor clevis!
Today two clevis, one on aileron, one on rudder unlocked in flight!
Very lucky to get down in one piece.

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
