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.

*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.

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.
Great plane, my first glider. Flies great and has a lot of support for the wings so they hardly bend unless you pull extreme maneuvers. I use anything from 1.3ah to 2.2ah 3s lipos and it flies good with all of them. Learning to program flap options like crow is also fun to have. Only reasons it isn't 5 star is that it was a bit of a hassle to get it put together since some things were not manufactured perfectly (well it is from china), and the esc is getting a bit hot when coming down. I'd recommend getting a better quality, even higher amp rated esc. Going to install fpv eventually! Oh and my esc braking was disabled by default, might want to enable it.
