Phoenix 2000 EPO Composite R/C Glider (PNF)

Phoenix 2000 EPO Composite R/C Glider (PNF)
Phoenix 2000 EPO Composite R/C Glider (PNF)

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 brushless outrunner 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. 

Specs:
Wingspan: 2 meters (78.74inch)
Length: 1160mm
Flying Weight: 980g
Motor: Brushless 2815/1050Kv
ESC Included: 30A

Required.
3S 11.1V 1500~1800mAh LiPoly Battery
4-5 Channel Transmitter and Receiver

*Having a blow molded fuselage on a glider is an excellent solution however it is not popular amongst manufacturers due to its high cost, effectively doubling molding costs.

Well, the 24 hr. chat help doesn't seem to be working, hopefully, someone with some knowledge of the Phoenix 2000 can help me. The specs show the plane to use a 3S 7.4V 1300~1800mAh LiPoly Battery for the 2815/1050Kv motor and a 30A ESC. I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer, but, I think the "3S" means that the battery has 3 LiPo cells, right? If so, the voltage should be 11.1v, NOT 7.4 volts, right? When I look at the battery tab for this aircraft it shows two batteries, but, neither one notes the voltage, only the following: Turnigy 1300mAh 3S 30C Lipo Pack and Turnigy 1800mAh 3S 20C Lipo Pack. Should the first reference be 11.1v? and would the 1800mAh battery give me longer flight times for the same amount of motor usage? Thanks a lot to anyone with a response! Roland

Okay, I have 1, or actually 2 of these planes. I liked the first one so much, I bought another. I can say for sure that this plane needs a 3S 11.1V lipo. Although the spec says 1500 to 1800 mAh, I fly with a 2200 mAh battery in mine, there's plenty of room for it. I also swapped the motor for a slightly bigger one (2836) and replaced the ESC with a 40A. These changes required adding a little tail weight to properly balance the CG. I think the slight weight increase gives the Phoenix better wind penetration with no real loss of performance. P.S. I see under the Specs, it now says "Required: 3S 11.1V 1500~1800mAh LiPoly Battery", so maybe HK has since corrected this.

That's the shipping weight. It comes double boxed in a very sturdy carton to protect the contents. Actual weight of the plane is 980 grams.

How is the wing system? I don't want to glue 2 main wings. I want to remove and wear all fligts. Can be any problem? Are screws go wrong?
 alboot 86 points
Hi serchester the wing system on this is glider is one of the best ideas going I have had one for 5 years and is still going the system works with a carbon fibreglass spar joiner and 4 m2 or m3 screws and a ply joiner with 4 screws.this is When you first put the wings together spar in one side slide the second half on and push together then turn the wing upside down place the ply joiner in its little slot and and put the 4 small screws in place 2 of these can be removed from one side and the wings can be split down for transport and replaced each time the other 4 m2 or m3 I have lost one in the past and replaced it and can't remember which size it was but these are used to screw the wings to the fuselage hope this helps if you have any other question just back and I will try to help. Alan.

Thanks for the credit any other question or problems just message and I'll try to help I have all 3 of the Phoenix gliders one they don't sell here 2.6 m evo brilliant thermaler
 Serchester 43 points
Alan, thank you very much for your explanatory answer. Just more 2 questions: 1-) Will the parts of my plane get eroded if I part the wings in the middle and unscrew the screws after each flight? Will there be any problem? 2-) I can't decided. Walrus or Phoenix? Walrus's fuselage is foam. Phoenix's fuselage is composite. Which is the more strong? Composite or foam? Which is easier to repair? I want to buy Phoenix 1600, not 2000. Because its expensive for me. What is your advice? 1600 or 2000?
 alboot 86 points
There will be no problem I have un screwed these bits hundreds of time and they are still perfect. As for Phoenix or walrus it would be no real decision it would be the Phoenix I bought my first one 6 years ago and I still fly it the wings for the 1.6,2.0 and the 2.6 meter evo all fit the same fuselage I have 2 spare fuselages which I bought as kit versions as it was cheaper I have upgraded the motor and esc though but only because the old one where just old and a bit tired other than that they are a briilliant glider and great for beginners and more experienced pilots to 10 out of 10 is what I would give
 alboot 86 points
Just read the last bit the 1.6 and the 2.0 m are both solid good planes the 1.6 is great fun for a sort of warm liner not quite a hot liner the 2.0 is still quite manoeuvre able but on a nice warm summers day you can get in to thermals and use it as a real good glider
 alboot 86 points
Also I've just looked at the walrus this would erode over time on where the wings have to be pushed in to the fuselage slots a friend of mine have a different glider than the walrus but the same design where the wings push in the slot after a short time we had to tape the wings to the fuselage to stop them working there way out in flight so I would go with the Phoenix but then I am bias
 alboot 86 points
I looked at your profile you live in turkey the 2.0 would go real well with the higher temps you get to the uk both are great also I noticed you have a trainstar and you was looking for spare parts for it you can get everything from a site called volantex they manufacture this and the Phoenix and more and have all spare parts wings fuselage ect.ect.
 Serchester 43 points
can ı* use 2200 mah on 2.0?
 alboot 86 points
Yes mate I fly 2200 mah on all 3 you can go smaller but you won't get as long flying before changes battery's with the 2200 I fly for a good half an hour before swapping

Just receiving mine today. I was a llitle concern because it only came with factory box wrapped with some kind of strong paper(You know how wild international postal services can be), but everything seems to be fine, I made a quick test of servos and motor, and a glance over epo parts, fuselage and other small parts. I think I'll have time to put her toghether the next week, hope not to find somethig wrong or missing at that time. Also, as varadero says (one comment below) Elev servo is 11g. but my Esc is 30A and branded Volantex. I really miss an ESC manual. Does any one knows how to set brakes on this Volantex Esc?. After maiden, I hope to made a wider report.
 varadero 17 points
Hello Miguel. You can find ESC manual under FILES tab on this page so you can ser brake with your transmitter very easy.. Mine ESC is Volantex as well, but 20A. I have tested current use on full throttle and it is maximum 11A, so 20A ESC is quite enough for me.

 Miguel FP 1658 points
Thank you varadero, so this manual for Hobbyking ESC's also works for Volantex Esc's?
 Miguel FP 1658 points
In other thing, I advice you to make a formal complaint to HK, so they provide you the right Esc.
 varadero 17 points
That ESC manual worked for me well, I had to set brake as well using that manual. I won't complain since there is different motor than on specs on mine, as I wrote on my previous discussion, with lower KV so replacement is not necessary. I do have 30 and 40 A ESC on my stock, and if stock one fails, I will replace it.
 Miguel FP 1658 points
I'll give it a try with this manual, brake is a must.
 Miguel FP 1658 points
OK, it works, is like waiting for the second group of 4 beeps to set brake on.
 alboot 86 points
Sorry guys I have posted on you comments below not reading this bit first you have found the esc file great but look in to the weight I mentioned below the battery tray
 Miguel FP 1658 points
Thanks Alan. I took off the battery tray and there was no ballast baneath, perhaps as you say because is a new version.

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. PROS: - 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. CONS: -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. RECOMENDATIONS: -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
