*Note: This is the Bind and Fly version which will require your own compatible Nine Eagles transmitter (such as the Nine Eagles J6 PRO - see related items) and a 3.7V 150mAh Lipoly.
The Sky 500 Ultra Micro Glider is compact in size and a blast to fly. Perfect for large indoor flying spaces, or outside in low wind conditions. Built from crash-resistant EPO, and offering full 3ch control, this ultra micro is a great platform for both beginners and experienced pilots alike. Featuring a high efficiency motor and folding prop, you can achieve long flight times of 10 minutes or more on just a 3.7V 150mAh lipoly!
The Sky 500 is small and portable enough to take with you anywhere. It features a removable wing that attaches with high strength magnets. The box it comes in also doubles as transport for the airplane. The airplane packs neatly in the box along with all of the accessories for easy carrying.

After flying the replacement model at my sanctioned airfield, I have two cons to report. The major problem with this model is that the speed control does not have a brake programmed into the throttle. So, the "folding" propellor doesn't really fold at all, until the landing is executed. Like other NE airplanes, the rudder is also not effective enough, even on high-rates. I will try to break the glue joints, on the factory control horns, and add more rudder deflection. Overall, the NE Sky 500 is a good value and I would recommend it to anyone with a NE airplane transmitter and batteries from another NE plane or heli.After the first test flight, in turbulent conditions, the motor and gearbox make a horrendous screeching noise. Two decent landings with one battery pack and no noticeable damage. The "Flash Sale" price is fair enough to warrant purchasing another BNF model, and keep the lemon for spare parts. The receiver brick binds to the NE Yak transmitter with no problems. Rudder is on the right stick, for mode 2 pilots. The airframe is the more forgiving EPO foam, as opposed to the EPS on the NE Yak and warbirds. I don't recommend the Sky 500 for absolute beginners, because the folding/tractor configuration requires maintaining airspeed on the approach.bonjour tous,
ce sky 500 ce bind galement avec l'meteur nine eagles-024g qui me servait du temps de mon spitefire micro;mode d'emploi allumer l'meteur,appuyer sur la commande des gaz et le maintenir pendant qu'on met la batterie attendre 2,3 seconds et lach les gaz.le petit voyant vert de l'metteur doit pass du clignotement au fixe.Recomendo este produto. o sky 500 voa perfeitamente, e muito, muito, muito fcil controlar. possvel voar em locais com pouco espao. um aero muito leve. Pesa apenas 39 gramas. Consegue-se voar perfeitamente em dias com pouco vento. O nico problema o fato de o motor ser com escovas. No sei quantos voos ele vai durar. Por enquanto foram 12 voos de pura diverso. a durao de cada voo depende do tipo de voo: voando calmamente plus-15 minutos. voos mais nervosos duram em mdia 6 minutosI picked up this aircraft in the RTF version due to its great price. I am fairly new to RC aircraft and I wanted something inexpensive to test the waters with. The Sky 500 is perfect for this. Due to its 3 channel configuration, it is a breeze to learn and to enjoy. It is powerful enough to do your basics including loops! I would strongly recommend flying in no wind. It can handle a little bit (like a light breeze), but it can be a little dodgy in it. Overall, this is a great little plane thats loads of fun! I plan to get a Nine Eagles BNF plane next!1st things 1st - I converted mine to 5gram HK BL and brick. that said.
This plane is a darling, a jewel... a diamond in the rough! It is the Perfect Outdoor RET Brick Brushless Micro Glider Conversion! (thats pretty specific but very desirable given its a tiny glider, an easy conversion, and availablity of cheap brick/brushless gear!)
It is just rigid enough to handle power. 2s100's provide better glide, flies so nice. I love the folding prop and sound of bl motor! Super easy conversion. Mount ARbrick; same location using same pushrods. install 5gram with round disc laying flat against foam tape fuse together no need to glue motor in!
If you have the brick/bl gear and skilled to wire up for <2s180 lipo - this plane is a must have in your micro collection! A True BL Micro Glider - very impressive performance and looks! I'll post flight video, to back up my talk, always do, so impressed with it. I tried other small glider conversions but this one I absolutely love! will probably order two more kits!!!
