Description

This 1600mm 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 moulded nylon skin with plywood formers, making it almost indestructible. Usually reserved for baby toys*. The virtually indestructible fuselage is smooth and ridgid 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-moulded 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.

 

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

I own a bunch of gliders, each have their own pros and cons, I then ordered the Phoenix 1600 and a turnigy aerodrive sk3 1040kv for a bit more power 3s and to avoid overheating issues and I had a 35 amp esc lying around. I added the orange 3 axis gyro too which helps in 10 to 30 knot winds.
I expected very little from this glider because of its price and it was to be one my son could fly instead of my other expensive gliders.
Well what a surprise, this plane flys like a dream, I finally have a plane that does exactly what it should. The power allows it to go vertical endlessly, hover and major speed runs
Then turn the motor off and it becomes a fantastic glider, it out performs all my other gliders that have much longer wingspans. It is my go to plane form 0 to 25 knots wind, it is robust and deals with the toughest windy conditions with ease.
Great plane for fpv.
Do take some time to set up the CG, expo and rates as it has a sweet spot that takes it to the next level.
I own the 2m version as well, but I find the 1600 far more versatile and better.
I will have to order another on or two as every one on the flying field wants to have a go.
Highly recommend !!

This is a great all rounder with no real vices. It's good in windy conditions and when using smaller batteries came be a bit of a floater. The motor is a bit suspect so keep engine runs short and you'll have no issues. But if you upgrade the motor keep weight in mind for c of g positions. A little beauty for the hangar.

This is the setup i used to help those who buy this plane and have the motor issues i did (Heating Up)
Turnigy Plush 40amp esc
Turnigy 2217 1050kv from HK bolts right in and shaft thickness is perfect
I trimmed off a little with my dremel to bring the prop a little closer to the fuse
Make the two vent holes on the size another half bigger to open them up and drill a 10-15 mm hole just back from the prop on top of the fuse
Now cut three plastic tea spoons about 3/4 of the spoon part left then the end cut facing forward over each hole giving u three intake scoops over the holes to cool the motor in flight
When your brake engages these scoops dont affect the props at all
Drill another large vent hole approx 15mm round underneath about 4-5 inches back from the wing giving you airflow through the fuse
Im running a 3 cell 1300 in mine and it flys like a dream
Great sloper also
Enjoy!

Ein wirklich toller Flieger, abgesehen vom wirklich sehr günstigen Preis stimmt fast alles. Ich empfehle, den eingebauten Motor sammt Firewal gegen einen etwas robusteren auszuwechseln und dann mit 3S zu fliegen (z.B. Turnigy2836 brushless Outrunner 1200kv). Beachten: der Mitgelieferte Spinner ist für eine 3mm Welle. Ebenfalls sollten die Gabelköpfe gegen höherwertige ausgetauscht werden, da bei hohen Geschwindigkeiten doch relativ grosse Kräfte wirken. Auf die Landeklappen kann verzichtet werden da der Flieger auch bei sehr langsamem Flug unkritisch ist und keine Tendenz zum Strömungsabriss hatt. Rumpf und Flügel überstehen auch sehr harte Landungen, aus diesem Grund sehr gut auch für Anfänger geeignet. Mit 3s ist die Phönix aber sehr Flott unterwegs und macht auch fortgeschrittenen eine Menge Spass. Bei 3s 2'200 mAh-Lipo sollte der Balast unter dem Lipo-Halter entfernt werden.

Aside from some QC issues (2 servos dead) & the motor getting really hot - this is a great plane to fly. Dare I say this is a contender to some of those expensive "Warm liners" out there - sure this is cheaper construction,parts, etc; but the flight experience is damn good. Very stable in the air & easy to handle, yet responsive. Use a radio with a decent range as this is a big plane that can go a long way !
I used an 1800mah zippy compact 3S & needed to add around 25-30gr at the front to balance it out - so would probably suit a 2500mah 3S better. CG Marks under the wings are spot on.

First I was not really happy because of the lots of screws...
But now - one day after it's maiden flight - I'm really happy with this plane.
Flying well and also faster than I thought. The stock motor was changed into a bigger one (like Phoenix 2000) for flying with a 3S Lipo.

This really is a great glider. I am most impressed with it. As supplied its a bit of a dog, but as mentioned by others, activate the ESC brake, order an NTM 28 motor and install it while you are building the glider, dont bother with the original motor. I strap a camera to mine just on top of the wings and its great for aerial video. Climbs dives & turns at speed really well, does loops, will fly inverted, and will do (slow) rolls. I use 3S 1300mAh to 3S 3300mAh batteries and get 20 mins out of 2300mAh. Highly recommended!
