4m Wingspan Glider

Hi guys,

Is this a good price for a 4m wingspan glider?

https://swoped.com/item/99466317/dg8...lectric-glider

Have anyone bought or sold anything on this site yet?

Cheers

Based on the recommended electronics, I would say it's a joke...

Hi,

I am not sure of what you mean . I am considering starting up on gliders.
Is it a joke because setup recommend is too basic, or is it totally wrong ?
What would be a decent power setup?

All help is welcome.

Cheers

Given your continuous swoped spamming posts history, let me doubt about your intentions...
That glider is not for beginners, anyway... and a serious electric setup cost more than the glider above.

What I think he is referring to is how all but 1-2 of your posts have either linked to a swooped.com link or been about a swooped.com link.

15 posts and 9 threads started by you already with links to swooped.com in the very first post... I find it hard that you don't work for swooped or are selling stuff on there. "Impartial"... yeah, you seem pretty unbiased.

looks like the same 4 meter glider that I got off ebay for about the same price. They are of ok quality and the wings are known to fold up. Other than that, I have never seen this site you are promoting. Good luck with your online business.

Hi,

Yes I did a few links to swoped.com as I found it interesting and thought would be a good place for us to buy and sell. I will list a few things there under my username ''Impartial'' once I get around it and post links on suitable categories if that is allowed. I may have started a few too many treads. Not sure if I get a mini plane, a quadcopter, glider or a F-35... May end up getting nothing.

Thank you for your input

Why is that?
I am just a normal guys who loves my rc.

I see dozens of posts there to HK and eBay, I thought would be nice to bring something else up and maybe trade some of my unneeded stuff.

All you're doing is spamming RCG. If you had any interests in the models you keep linking to, you would find reputable dealers, dealing in quality merchandise, not the inferior products swoped is showing off.

No, it's not. Expect poorly fitting parts, poor quality hardware, substandard fiberglass work and no assembly instructions. Many of us feel that this level of kit is simply not worth owning at any price.
