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 molded nylon skin with plywood formers, making it almost indestructible, this is 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 and is virtually indestructible.
Wingspan: 2 meters (78.74inch)
Flying Weight: 980g
Motor: Brushless 4010/850Kv
ESC Included: 30A
3S 11.1V 1500~1800mAh LiPoly Battery
4-5 Channel Transmitter and Receiver
*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.

Took it out today and with a couple of clicks on the trim and it flew great
Never flown a glider before have stuck to power planes like the Tundra, Tornado and T28.
This was really easy to put together and all the parts and wiring were well supplied with extra screws and fixings so if you lose a screw or bolt no need to worry so much. Took me about 20 minutes to put the whole thing together and a few minutes to secure the aileron servos in place properly as they were a bit loose. All in all a very strong model which came well made. Im not very good at putting on decals and these ones were REALLY hard to apply as they kept rolling up on me and just having to go off the main picture really does not help when it comes to there placement so this took me over an hour just to apply them BADLY.
Managed by luck to turn the motor break on but found it very difficult to understand all the tones and what they meant as most of them sounded the same to me just in different amounts of beeps. So have motor break on but no power till i hit 50% on my throttle. Cant understand why that is or the beeps to factory rest the ESC but hey i have brake and full throttle what more could i want.
Flying it is a totally different ball game to the other planes and make sure you have all the services flat as any slight outage in the ailerons rudder and elevator will soon show when you take this bird up.
Took my maiden flight in low wind yesterday. Takeoff was easy just added full throttle and gave it a small throw and a up she went. Got to a reasonable hight and powered totally down and trimmed her in and boy does she glide. Had someone from the club with me helping me out what with me not having flown gliders before and boy did it take a little getting used to as the movements on the sticks are tiny. So think for future flights will defiantly turn down the rates and expos.
Using a 2200 mah nano tech i was in the air for over 25 minutes and upon landing my battery still had over 50% in it according to my battery checker.
This is defiantly a GREAT value model with tonnes of power be great in the summer for some long flights but this time of year 25 minutes in one flight sure does chill the fingers and rest if the body.
Does anybody know where I can get the programming details for the Volantex 30 speed controller?
top glider for its type. modified the wing plywood joiner screw system, eliminated
self tapping small servo screws and used 4 mm. metal screws and self tapping brass
sleeve inserts in the wings. will try to upload photos.
buy this product no matter what your experience is.
Just a quick review. I've been flying the Phoenix 2000 for 14 months now and its great. I've had no problems with the motor or esc at all. The glider will loop, roll, fly inverted, inverted turn, bunt into inverted flight. It really is fun to fly. I am using a zippy 3S 2200mAh 40c battery pushed as far back as possible on the mounting tray. It needs a bit of up elevator trim to glide flat with this amount of nose weight but with no thermals you can easily achieve 35 minute flight times. Its definitely worth buying 2 extra 9g servos for the flaps and setting them up for crow breaking. Without this set up it just floats on and on and on....
Excellent glider, fitted 3S 2250 with no problems, getting 30 minutes flight time.
Ce planeur vol à merveille j'ai rajouté des servo hk 15178 pour les ailerons .super achat
it has not come in yet but looks like an amazing glider
got back to flying after a loooong time in a zip.
flyes nicely does not suffer hard landings thanx to its VERY low weight
and smart flexible construction.
Thermaling requires some adjustments on wing decalage and CG (very conservative) I used a 3s 2200ma pack pushed all the way back on the tray
and needed some 15 gms lead (scotch taped to the fuse in front of the rudder)
Wing decalage was zero with respect to elevator so the glider is flying tail down and some up elevator. I will give 2° climb decalage to the wing and will try it then.
Consider covering the wings with oracover lite or similar to preserve in time.
Cool plane that is really fun to fly. It can definitely take a beating.
