Description

This 2-meter 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*, Usually reserved for baby toys, with plywood formers, making it almost indestructible.

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 requires 1 servo per aileron for strong control surface movement plus there is a pre-moulded slot so you can add your own flaps later. To complete this model you will require 4 9g servos, a 30A speed controller, a brushless outrunner, your own transmitter and receiver (Tx/Rx) and a 1300~1800mAh Lipoly battery.

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'm on my 2nd Phoenix (the first badly crashed cause of a mistake of mine on such a windy day i wouldn't even try to fly) and still like it very much.
I have some bigger, faster, more expensive planes, but the Phoenix is still one of my favorite cause it can follow my mood : glide for hours when i want to relax or be quite fast and even do some aerobatics (not 3D) when i want to have some fun.
Fly mine on 3S 2200mAh Lipos with a propdrive 35-36 910kv motor and a 40 A Rotorstar ESC, both getting barely warm with the supplied prop even when pushing quite hard and give me more power than i need.
For those burning lots of motors it's probably cause you fly your Phoenix like a normal plane and not like a glider (ie use throttle all the time instead of short bursts only for gaining altitude).
The original motor of the kit version, and even worse the 2815 listed in the manual, is really on it's limit and even beyond with the supplied prop so it will overheat if you use too much throttle (the badly ventilated fuselage don't help either) so if you want to use a lot of throttle either lower prop size and pitch or use a more powerful motor that won't be on it's limit with the supplied prop.

Have to say, this is probably the most fun you are going to have for 90 bucks. 4 flap wing flexes a bit so crow does not do much on this model but it does work a little. The flaps are awesome, can really float around. The ARF went together well however there were a couple of issues, nothing serious. The engine mount did not suit my engine. The front of the fuse where the engine mounts is soft and flexes, even with a ply backing. saying that, the kit comes with a mount that will fit a few engine sizes and it is made from strong plastic and also an alloy bracket.i dont like the screw on tail and glue does not stick to the fuselage. Nothing bad at all and despite my few gripes, this really is a nice flyer and will fly for ages. It glides really well so allow some extra room on landing approach. despite a couple of easily fixed gripes, i love it 10/10 !

I have had this plan now for almost a year. All I can say "It's Great and I enjoy flying it." I guess I have over 300 flights with it and I fly this plan like an acrobatic glider. (Not a 3-D) I have even upgraded to a 4S 1800mAh 40C Battery with a 60 AMP HK ESC. The original motor handled a $s battery for about 2 months of flying and it finally burned out. However, the original motor flys great with a 3S 1800mAh Bat.
I have read some of the reviews from other flyers, and I am puzzled at some of the comments. First, this plan can be used for FPV but it's not designed for it. Secondly, This has a broad range of options in Motors, ESC, Batteries and Props. I have experimented a great deal with this plan, and I know that it is NOT indented to be a high performance glider, but I have this plan that can compete with most high performance cliff gliders. All of you great flyers, Use your imagination because this plan will allow you do do it. It's also great value for the money

I use a NTM 35-30 1100kv (has a 4mm shaft so you can use original prop) and a Hobbyking 40a esc and 3s 2200 40c .

I really love this plane to look at however after 6 months and 3 attempts to put an ESC / motor combination I cannot get this thing out of my garage and into the sky as I keep burning motors and ESC. The plane is getting EXPENSIVE as I cannot get anything to work in it. I would REALLY appreciate anyone providing me with URL's to an ESC and motor combination that they KNOW works in this plane...

Bought one of these as a upgrade from a axn ..started building it and found that the rudder servo hole is not for a 23mm body servo .i had to order a 28mm body to fit ...might just be mine but check before starting your build or like me yours will end up sitting there for a extra couple of days... Otherwise the rest looks good ...will update this after the maiden.

I love this glider. Very smoothly shaped, good handling qualities. I especially like the sturdy extruded fusealage. I use it for fpv, I must say there is not a whole lot of space in there and fitting everything in is a pain (including osd), but definately worth it. On the plus side everything inside the fusealage is very well protected in case of a crash.

The only downside of the plane is the material of the beams in the wings. It's allumiun, quite heavy and it bends in case of crashes, but yeah that's ok for the price.

I bought this after the ASW28 and I find it is much better (although I liked the ASW28). Especially the canopy and the wing-fusoleage link which were of bad quality on the ASW.
