Magnificent 2.5m ARF Electric glider

fibreglass fuselage - flying surfaces totally constructed - controls hinged

Aileron - elevator - flaps - rudder - motor - crow brakes

This is the premium electric glider that you have been looking for! A classic kit in the old style - no foam here! Add your radio gear, fit your motor and go and catch thermals!

Recommended motors:
MVVS 3.5/1400 SPORT for gentle flying, MVVS 4.6/840 upwards for competition
Scorpion 3026-710 for gentle flying, 3026-1190 for competition
Nose diameter - 40mm - use a 40mm cool nose spinner or 40mm classic aero-naut

Wing centre panel - 22mm thick - plenty of space for all kinds of servos - recommend Hyperion DS13TMB servos

Experience with this kit shows that there is a problem with too much weight down the back - it is recommended that the servos be mounted up front to save rearward weight. Siggi Schleid modified his kit successfully with forward mounted servos and a large battery pack to achieve correct CofG. The Xenon flies beautifully when modified - see photos below.

Please note - English instructions can now be downloaded from the Aero-naut web site.
