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 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. 

Specs:
Wingspan: 2 meters (78.74inch)
Length: 1160mm
Flying Weight: 980g
Motor: Brushless 28 Size 1050Kv
ESC Included: 30A

Required.
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.

This is my second Phoenix. I flew the heck out of my first one and loved it. For the money these are great gliders. They thermal well, and the motor and EC seem well matched. The big problem is that you have to assemble this without any instructions. Yes, an instruction book is included, but it worthless. It doesn't identify any of the correct screws to use, and there are dozens of parts you will have left over. The aileron servos were glued in place making installation of the servo horn difficult. If you install the optional flap servos, one of the supplied control rods will be too short, since, unlike the ailerons, the flaps operate in the same direction which requires one servo to be installed upside down making the distance to the flap control horn longer than the supplied linkage can accommodate. The screws that hold the tail assembly together are too long. If you don't trim them there will be play in the vertical stabilizer. I've put together dozens of RC planes, so I could figure out how this went together, but it's not a plane for a novice builder, or anyone who needs directions.

This is a very sweet flyer. I see some complaints about this model but it is great in all conditions and a very good glider. I have the flaps on a variable pot and being able to dial in a very small amount of flap when gliding really changes the floating ability. I have large throws on the ailerons so it is very responsive when required. Nothing to complain about for me. My favourite foam glider.

How about spare parts? Prop size? ESC setup instructions? Parts specifications?
Not bad overall for the buck. But a small wooden strip to join the wings ? ? ? Several things not all to well engineerd.
HK has yet to learn a few things, first and fore most to mind customer comments!

Got this glider some time ago. Prop adapter snapped when installing but I received a replacement part. Nice decals and it is a fun flier. On a 3s 2200Mah the COG is a bit off, battery should be placed almost against the motor.
Flies very nicely in strong winds, 30 minutes of flight is easily achieved. Motor is very quiet. Flaps do not add that much lift but it helps to slow it down for landing.

Phoenix 2000 is a great flyer but centre of gravity needs accuracy to get good flight performance. A few problems with assembly including a faulty installed wing servo but easily changed recommend fitting flaps unless you've an airport to land in. Flying with 1800ma 3s well back tray. As mentioned by others wing mounting is weak at back edge other wise a nice attractive model

Good idea to use strapping tape over outside servo area because the two spars do not connect or overlap each other. Otherwise good fun.

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?
