Great plane, but not for a beginner.
I don't see this plane as a glider at all. Not enough wing. It's actually very speedy. I bought this plane 5 years back when I first got into the hobby. I just had to have a V-tail...always thought they were cool looking, LOL. Being a beginner at that point, I bought the RTF version of this plane. It came with an cheap transmitter, and this was the problem. If you're going to fly this plane, you need a nice transmitter to be able to dial in the dual rates and expo (you can't do that with an RTF Tx). Anyway, eventually I bought myself a DX6i and a DX6 transmitter, and it made this plane so much easier to fly. Here's me flying my V-tail, during the 2nd year of flying RC, on the cheap RTF transmitter....I'm not too bad: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OXI-xuimJUU
very nice flying rc
Hi RC buds this is one of the best little flyers that I have put together sure there is some twerking that needs to be done. what rc does not need something out of the box so glad that I bought this so easy to fly and put together what a blast Motion RC is the best give them five stars for service and being Johnny on the spot thanks take care
Good but needs work
First let me say for the price it is a real bargain. it isn't perfect but it is fortunately confined to the V tail control. As delivered it has some serious flaws. Z bends on the horn ends are not good at all. A v tail scribes an are when moving not a straight line. the problem was described in another review. The pushrods have to move laterally in addition to fore and aft. Z bends on a curved pushrod are a no-no. Ball links would have been perfect. In addition the pushrod was rubbing the edge of the C/F tube and the back of the servo due to it being shoved up and into the fastener on the offset servo isn't real good either. The whole pushrod was discarded and a new one was made to align it with the pushrod tube and the control horn ends were made simply curved and extended a bit past the horn. the system it really free with no binding present. The ESC was routed behind the servo, use a hot glue gun to keep the wires orderly. The rest of the pieces fit well into the hatch space. It balances dead level. At a flying weight of 5.5 oz this is a real treat to fly. it doesn't do everything well but it is after all a glider. If your flying on a windy day add nose weight and go fly. It might be a little work to get the tail right but it pays dividends in the long run. For the money it is a great buy and 4 stars simply because the controls need work. As usual MRC gets 5 stars for outstanding service.
After much work
After much work adjusting the ervo I got this plane flying real good, fact is it is fun to fly now that the elevators hold and do no slip.....will be flying more often.
Very good flyer.
This plain is very easy to fly and very predictable in flight. Its a great beginners plain but also fun for the more advance flyer looking for something small that can be thrown in your passenger seat and then flow at just about any location around town. this this is a great option. Out of the box it was well trimmed needing just a small amount of up elevator.
my 2cents worth
I'm just noticing a fellow pilot having an issue with this glider. All I can say is over time I've had a couple planes that just would not fly right for me. It's frustrating. I either sold them or destroyed them. It happens. But your glider has an issue that can be worked out. Have another pilot take a look at it for you. Put it down for a bit and then go back to it. Check all controls & surfaces for correct movement. Check batteries/motor could be bad. I'm sure you know all this. Give the glider a GOOD toss at about 65-70 degrees & climb & trim. It should go no problem. Don't give up, it is a cool plane. You may find some good help on the Motion forum. Good luck! Stay with it.
I have numerous planes of all types. So it felt kind of strange to get a small trainer glider. But after watching videos (I always watch them first) it looked interesting. So $89 later I have one. First flight was perfect. I knew it would all be a tight fit with the bat & rec but it all fit. Got about 10-11 min. Few inverted easily. Loops & rolls too. Have about 8-10 flights on it now & no issues. V tail assy was Ok, a little adjusting but no big deal. Power is good, no problem climbing. I'm flying at 5,000'. So for $89, if you want a nice relaxing flight for 10++ minutes riding thermals this is nice. Just wish they'd start coloring the bottoms of these wings neon colors!
PIECE OF JUNK
Set CG , made sure every thing worked , gve it a little toss into the wind...splat nose first into the ground. Picked it up , checked everything again. Gave full throttle and a little toss....splat into the ground breaking the prop. Could and would NOT recomend this plane to anyone. Wished I Had never bought it.
I'm so glad I got this rc plane. It is my second plane the first was a volantexrc super cub I smashed it more times then I could count. In the end I was the only person who could fly the darn thing. I was so worried I was gonna total this thing being so new to rc and never using a tactic 404 or any controller without low rates. I threw the plane and hoped for the best. It flew great I got it trimmed real quick and got about 1.25 hours of flight time on my 6 batteries 2100mah total. I had nothing but perfect landings and no crashes. I love it this is a great plane. Pros: Fast but not too fast Can fly along at 1/4 throttle Glides quite well Folding prop Lightweight 12ent tracking Cons: Can not alpha. The vtail is a pain in the @ss to put together and install. A full sized receiver with a 350mah 30c is a tight fit. Vtail control horns need to be glued on after hooking them to the push rods but the rods want to pull the horns inwards so its just a pain. A set screw setup would be nice.
