The Hobby King Kinetic 800 Mini Glider is now available as an ARF model. With no gluing needed the model snaps together with clever interlocking parts that will have you ready to fly in just minutes. The folding 8x5 Prop requires a 2226-1250kv motor and 20~30A ESC and can be powered with either a 11.1v 500mah~1000mah 2~3S1P lipo battery. All the hardware, including a Y-lead is provided to help get you in the air fast. The interlocking wing system also allows the wings to be removed for easy transport and storage.
A particularly interesting feature of the Hobby King Kinetic 800 Mini Glider is the lack of a traditional elevator. The entire horizontal stabilizer is used as an elevator providing extraordinary agility and precise control.

Love this little bird. I have a dozen Rc planes, and this one is my favorite. Its small and easy to transport, it will float around like a little glider on 2s, and with a 3s battery it becomes a get with it hot-liner. I just wish they still offered it in PNP version. In PNP version it was the biggest bang for the buck at HK.Great little baby)
Im also like to fly in slope, so im went to save the weight.
This motor C20-1550kv (or C20-2050kv with 6x4 prop) simple outstanding ! Aslo i had to use lightweight ZC.850.2S.25 2S 850mh pack.
BEC Turnigy Plush 12A, 2x HXT500 and 2x 1440A wing servo.
AUW 260gr (9.2oz) or 245gr without decals.
Awesome !!!This is a fast and small glider, not for beginners. After buying this I must say I'm a little disapointed, stalls to easy and a stiff wind picks it down to the grown. The AXN floater is a better glider with prop. in compare.Overall it's a good kit, but the stickers are just terrible. No image in the construction plan, you have to check pictures on the web (no bottom image available). The worse is, that the glue is not strong enough and they can't copy the surface shapes. Be ware to buy correct (8 mm height) servos at least for ailerons.I got one and trust me! This is one of the moste fantastique model that i have! Fast , Stable, resistant, Nice, easy to carry everywear! you can bought this model the eyes close!
I use a lipo 1000mha 3s Nanotech tunergy fly aroud 20min full power and 1h managing as a glider.
J'ai acheter ce model et je n'ai qu une chose a dire...
Parfait! Stable, resistant, transportable, rapide. vous pouvez acheter ce model les yeux fermer!
Je vol avec une batterie lipo nanotech 1000mha 3s, de longue apresmidi de plaisir!I use a Nanotech 950. It has lots of space o all sides. Also I use a PRODUCT ID: R410 orange 4ch receiver. It is small and it fits nicely right under the wing (it allows the LiPo to slide right back. I use a PRODUCT ID: SK3-2826-1240. It fits tightly (about 1.5 mm on side). I replaced the CF in the wings with one rod and the wings are sturdier now. Good quality foam, I used PRODUCT ID: CA460-20GFC to glue the halves and everything else. on the bottom, I drilled a 14mm hole about 5 mm back from the batt hatch; it creates a bit of airflow and also space to pull the tail servo wires through a wider hole that I enlarged to allow the servo connectors to pass. good stuff, cheersExcellent mini glider! Possible to do hotliner dives (add a whistler for nice sound). However decals do not stick well, peeled and throw away and decal that comes off after awhile. Wings do not join properly after some time (need to add tape near wing root to tighten).
I used the stock "2226" motor, Turnigy plush 18amp, 800mah 2s or 3s. But this motor and the ESC gets really hot on 3s i dont know why. I think I better find a better motor and bigger ESC. Anyone recommend better motor?Ordered on the 4th of march and I am still waiting for it to leave the US warehouse, today is march 13th.Nice little funfly to leave in the carMine arrived last week in superfast delivery time from HK. Build was quite easy taking in concideration the poor instruction manual supplied. I did fir a bit bigger motor (2212) and a 3 cell Li Po - 800 mah. Maidened it on Friday evening and what a blast!. This Kinetic 800 is close to a hot liner and I would recomend it to anybody. Flies like a dream.
