The Hobby King Kinetic 800 Mini Glider is a truly plug and play 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 is powered by a 2226-1250kv motor and 30A ESC which requires an 11.1v 500mah~1000mah 3S1P lipo battery. All servo leads are tagged for easy setup and a Y-lead is included to help get you in the air fast. The interlocking wing system also allows the wings to be removed for easy transport and storage. Simply install your own receiver and battery and your ready to go!
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.

Its a great flying glider. On calm days you can throttle back and with some skill thermal it. Stable and clean flyer. When its windy, the handling is still solid all around and can penetrate heavy winds. On some occations this is the only airplane flying at the field when every other aircraft is grounded due to the wind speed! Overall this was a great plane out of the box. Glue the wings in and switch out the connector that'll improve its efficeincy and durability.great little plane! the stickers come of easily and seperate, the elevator has a slight angle to it (-1 star for these two together). but all in all this is a great buy.
I have no COG issues, in fact I have lots of room to place the batteries. push the receiver into the canopy towards the back. i use 850mAh zippy compact (61g with wires and plugs) and turnigy 2s (57g with wires and plugs).
I also replaced the ESC with a HK SS 15-18 amp, the 30A ESC that is included is way overkill, even the 15A leaves plenty of room.
I maiden flew this today, only tested the 2s lipos yet, it needs arround 20pcnt throttle to stay in the air, its so silent that you have to fly really close to be able to even hear it. i changed batteries after 12 minutes but tested at home and they were only half empty it really does not draw a lot of amps.very good model, unique wing design. so easy to assemblevery great Plane! and flies very nice! have colorfull sticker make orientation easy. i use with 800mah 3 cell and CG as the manual book say'sGot my Kinetic Mini Glider today with a bad servo.

Looks like a fun plane. Can't wait to fly it.
Tres bon petit planeur, laisser dans le coffre de la voiture.
Le pack 3 elements lui procure des possibilits de voltige. Le 2S garantie un planeur lger. Donc 2 planeurs en un seul !Superbe planeur pour toutes les sorties; Par contre, les autocollants ne sont pas a la hauteur des qualits du planeur.
A recommander sans hesiterit flew very well, until it went to the common "death spiral". the wings may have loosened during flight. ill have to buy a new frame now. the tail end has a large crack along with a bent nose and broken prop. :(when i got the plane it looked fine but i later found out one of the wing clips where missing . so i had to glue one wing in , that is why i give it 3 croens for quality . whatever happened to quality controlAbsolutely great plane!
I had no problems with the CG at ass, with a 3S 850mAh. Amazing climb performance, very good handling in strong winds, but it is quite fast. I had no problems putting it together, and with the quick snap assembly, everything can be very easily disassembled for transport.
No more than 2-3 hours building, with most of that time being spent putting the stickers on and finetuning the CG.
I will try a 2S 350mAh and 2S 500mAh to get slower speed and better gliding performance.
