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 molded nylon skin with plywood formers, making it almost indestructible. Usually reserved for baby toys*. The virtually indestructible fuselage is smooth and rigid 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-molded 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 molded fuselage on a glider is an excellent solution however it is not popular amongst manufacturers due to its high cost, effectively doubling molding costs.

My PNP model was delivered with motor mounting screws 8mm long crushing motor windings - M3 x 5mm should be substituted whether the motor is to be replaced or not. Otherwise the motor problems described in other reviews will be repeated.
I will disregard the English instructions during assembly as they need a rewrite to be usefu

Very, very nice 1600mm glider for the price. Shipping & package were excellent. But bad motor in my PNP version that burnt out on 3rd flight. (smoke came out of the motor). Make sure you order the spare motor from the website together. Well balanced, and easy to fly. I used 3-S 1500mhA lipo battery that gave me plenty of power and over 15 minutes climbing and gliding. Lots of room for bigger battery. This is a keeper.

what excellent value this glider is...highly recomend, easy to hand launch, and land...however...asshared here, the motor is a peice of crap...just order the turnigy ts 2217 16 turn shown in the other items customers bought with this..that one change over makes this an awesome plane on 3s...even with the extra cost of upgrade still good value for the money..can not wait to try it slope soaring too. oh and put some ventilation holes front and rear and use plastic spoons as vent covers, they look cool and work a treat

Got my glider today I removed the battery tray to see what esc and motor it came with it. I uploaded pictures but the esc is a Volantex 30amp 2s-4s and the motor is a 2212/10t 1400kv both are used on Volantex gliders. I’m sure this will handle 3s with no problem. Great price for this glider.

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.
