Can anyone tell me anything about this sailplane. Thinking of buying one for flying in a field near my house. Looks interesting. I have heard it is a EasyGlider clone! But comes w/the motor pkg included un-like the afor mentioned.

I wonder how long it will take Harley Davidson's lawyers to force them to re-name this glider!

Good one, I thought the same when I saw the name.
Who knows, maybe that will be the big deal to order now before that happens.

Thanks for the heads up, looked into thru other sites and confirmed what you have said, problems w/this bird abound.

OK, here, try to supply a little more info, here is the direct link to the ARF:

http://www.hobby-lobby.com/electragl...34151_prd1.htm


It's actually a PNF, It includes:


4-9g servos, brushless 1050Kv outrunner motor, 18A ESC, 2-cell 1500mAh LiPo battery. The airplane is built completely from tough EPO foam and is pre-decorated and ready for assembly. Only an hour is required to get the airplane prepared for soaring flight. The brushless motor is pre-installed as is the folding prop and spinner.



all it needs is your own TX, RX is is smaller than MPX Easy Glider, it is more on the line like an MPX Blizzard or ST Models Blaze, but more floatier. it's a compact 61" span. It's interesting, it's in stock right now, I might grab one, anyone else?

If I could find a current Hobby Lobby discount coupon, I would order one, but missed the last discount code "Summersizzler.

Well, looks like you found the same scoop I did, but what I am looking for is that individual that has road tested this puppy. I do like the looks for a quick, throw in the SUV and head to the hills and fly away from the crowed flying fields. But also do not want to purchase another hanger queen that requires way more than worth mods to bring up to speed. So hopefully, CA Commie, you can be the one to try this puppy out, and yes, we missed the coupon!!!!!!!!
