Multiplex have come up with a new foam, electric glider that looks like a glider. The Solius is a T-tail glider with straight dihedral, a clear cockpit with cockpit detail and single wheel landing gear. It is capable of gliding flight, catching thermals and aerobatics (to liven up your day!). The tubular spar technology stiffens the wings to allow aerobatic manoeuvres.

A lovely kit that goes together with super glue (Elapor foam that bounces). 2100-3S LiPo battery recommended for long flights.
