Shrike Glider 1450mm (57") Wingspan - PNP from Skynetic - SKY1001-001

Motion RC is proud to announce Skynetic, a new brand of foam electric aircraft offering high value and diverse selection for newer pilots looking to broaden their flying experience across a range of platforms. Developed by and available exclusively at Motion RC, Skynetic advances our vision of a global audience discovering the fun of RC Flight. Backed by Motion RC's customer support and a full line of spare parts to keep you flying, stay tuned for new products as we expand our exciting new brand!

The Skynetic 1.4M Shrike Glider raises the bar for foam electric sport gliders. Ideal for newer pilots looking to expand their skills with confidence and convenience, the Shrike assembles in minutes, provides "full house" control surfaces including flaps, and features an innovative mounting system that fastens or removes the main wings in mere seconds without tools.

Our Shrike Glider is designed as a versatile platform, offering value as an excellent trainer for newer pilots, an exciting acrobatic sport flyer, and a stable slow speed platform for FPV or general leisure flying. Customer feedback led much of the innovations we packed into this sport glider, including its tool-less wing connection and fully enclosed control linkages in the tail for enhanced aerodynamics. In fact, only two screws are required to fasten the tail and nose cone, respectively. Other features include a thoughtfully designed battery bay to allow as much space as possible to safely fit a range of flight battery sizes pand a modern gyro stabilized receiver according to your preference. Even the spinner sports a unique slotted design, with aeration holes that accent the functioning Naca inlet to cool the internal bay.

With its 1400mm wingspan, over-sized ailerons and generous flaps, the Skynetic Shrike can be flown on the slope, at high altitudes, as a sport acrobatic glider, and a trainer. Its high contrast, asymmetric color scheme in brilliant green and deep blue vinyl decals is easy to orient for new pilots, and also easily removable for those looking to customize their Shrike. Two 8mm LEDs also offer minor orientation assistance during landing in low light conditions.

The Shrike is a convenient and low cost entry into the world of foam electric RC flight. Give the gift of flight to a friend, or push your own skills further with the Skynetic Shrike!

Shrike 2nd Review

This is the second review I am submitting for the Shrike. After a few flights with the Shrike I found the horizontal stabilizer was moving during servo operation. The horizontal stabilizer is just snapped in during assembly. It has worked its way loose during operation. I put a couple drops of CA on the front of the stabilizer and that made it solid and did not move. I would ask Skynetic to come up with a better latching system for the horizontal stabilizer.

Skynetic Shrike

I have 6 flights on this plane and I can say I am very pleased with the flight performance. It has become one of my favorite go to planes. I did have the following issues: 1. The elevator needed some glue because the snap in of the assy was not tight enough. 2. The receiver is difficult to position due the all of the servo leads and having to push the receiver deep into the fuselage behind the battery. 3. The propeller assy flew off in the garage when testing. I had to add blue loctite which is contrary to the instructions. Note: Beware of the possibility of your battery leads rubbing against the motor.

Skynetic Shrike

The plane went together well with no issues. The first flight was great. The second flight the nose cone and prop came off. I followed directions concerning the nose cone and prop installation. I tightened it just a little more than finger tight. But apparently that isn't tight enough. I will have to go with a different spinner and prop adapter since motion is already out of the spinner and no indication when they will have it. I can't give the plane 5 stars because of the spinner issue. But other than that it is a great plane.

Shrike Glider

Really have been enjoying this glider, well built and easy to fly and transport. Foam is excellent and smooth. Works very well with 3s 1800 to 2200. I have not tried it with anything larger. Looking forward to the Havok glider for Christmas..

Kick-back powered glider

Very well done,easy to assemble (without any enclosed instructions !). Only complaint is receiver is "stuffed" behind battery with little access to antenna leads. Put flaps on 3 way switch to get spoilers in "up" position, neutral in middle ,and flaps in "down" position. Very stowable ,so will always have with you "when the time is right". mjm
