Forged for a King in a distant realm, the legendary Excalibur is here.
Rule the sky with the most anticipated Durafly release this year. The Excalibur must be flown to be truly appreciated. Innovative design features, such as the cantilever forward swept wing, V-tail tail surfaces, incredibly strong construction and stunning lines.
Just like the legendary sword, Excalibur's strength is paramount. The engineers at Durafly were given their hardest challenge yet, to design a wing that is ultra thin but incredibly strong in EPO foam!
The wing has carefully positioned carbon fibre reinforcement and pre-tensioned glass fibre strips. The fuselage is feature packed with a square carbon fibre tube and glass fibre strips. The V-tail along with control surfaces are reinforced. All these features combine to make the Excalibur a weapon.
In this Kit version, you receive the same the legendary V-tail glider But without the electronics, Leaving you to do your own power setup. With the decals not applied but in the box you can really customise your own legend.

super kit, super plane-fast,direct . very good controllablesuper kit, super plane-fast,direct . very good controllableWhat's good: Perfect packaging, couldn't be better. Flies much faster than the predecessor. Overall good quality foam and parts. Great improvements in details like control horns and canopy lock. Great looks. Repair bits and nose cones and prop/spinner included. Great detail in motor mount/wire guide. Flies fast and steady. Using flaperons the speed, and stall speed, can easily manipulated. Wings and tail very solid. Nice aerobatic precision. Quick connect wing mount, very nice!
What's not so good: Firewall could be thicker or reinforced. Wing reinforcements are rarely flash with the surface and need either filler or be shaved; also some are not properly glued in and need more thin CA trickled in (hence only 4 stars for quality, sorry). Propeller adapter not included, which makes the spinner pretty useless. Decals expand when exposed to the sun and make ugly folds, at least on my painted plane they don't stick so well. Had to compromise on tail servos as not all servos fit the cut-outs. Shame that my Gliderdrive motor (38mm) will not fit without a lot of cutting. Price a bit too high.
All considered though I can only recommend this plane. Looking forward to some windy days to get the most out of her. I increased the throws much above the recommended ones, with high exponential. Makes flying her more interesting!WOW --- what a performer --- I put half flaperons to land in tight landing areas. I love the versatility as it's a good glider and I love flying it flat out.

Good one HKMust reinforce firewall and fuselage join. Plane tore apart using SK3.3542-1250kg motor and Graphene 4S 2200mah batteries. 700watts and torque will separate the plastic from the foam. Aside from that, a great plane!
