Plug and fly isn't just for foamies anymore. The Perseus electric sailplane is a high performance, high quality airframe with all the electronics pre-installed. Designed to be a competition level sailplane for the discerning pilot with little time to build.
This model oozes performance and quality. The Perseus has a carbon fiber fuselage molded in epoxy resin, not cheap polyesters. The built up wing and tail feathers are made of the highest quality balsa available. Covering those surfaces is premium Oracover plastic film. The wings are two piece plug in type supported by a solid carbon fiber spar joiner. Each wing panel features a MPX style connector that automatically connects flap and aileron servos upon attaching the wings. No fiddly connections to worry about. Pushrods feature ball link ends for maximum precision and zero slop. Even the control horns are airfoiled to further reduce drag. With such a nice model, it was screaming for good components so we have outfitted the Perseus with digital metal gear servos, with the high powermotor spinning a carbon fiber folding propeller attached to an aluminum spinner. The blade yoke on the Perseus is a twisted style which is designed to allow the propeller blades to fold flatter against the fuselage reducing drag significantly compared to a traditional straight yoke.
Flying the Perseus is a treat. The slop free control system and rigid construction yields crisp response and on rails flight precision. The low weight, and sleek construction means it climbs to altitude fast and thermals with ease. This a great airplane for those wanting performance, but not wanting to spend a lot of time in the workshop. The Perseus is a great model for ALES competition since it climbs quickly and thermals well.

*Note* The fuselage is all carbon fiber so it is suggested to use a receiver with a long antenna which can be run outside of the fuselage. This is to prevent any radio interference.
The Perseus is NOT worth the money, check out RC Groups Perseus thread for my review and video, I did have a lot of issues. I'm disappointed in the Perseus.The Perseus is worth the money, check out RC Groups Perseus thread for my full review and video, I did have some small issues but I have rectified with no thanks to this vendor. But I was not disappointed in the Perseus.
