Thanks! That motor pod looks fragile and sticks out way high. Just don't do a flip on landing or landing upside down!

Post some videos when you get to maiden it.

Nice unboxing vid Felipe, like the Porsche die casts in the background also
Does the kit come with a wing root joiner insert, to substitute for flying without the motor pod ??
I didn't notice one, but did watch a flying vid without the motor pod.
Think if I get this model, doing away with the rubber band system would be priority one.
Quality of the fuse pod and boom looks pretty good.

The motor pod is not fragile, it make a fibreglass

Thank you for your opinion.
Yes. Flying is possible without the motor pod.
I also will remove the rubber band system.
I will upload pictures of the construction soon.

looks very nice, I hope they offer the pod separately. What size motor is going to work in there?

Yeah that pod is pretty sexy - R2 never had much in the way of spares for it's gliders as they were manufactured by a third party so you will probably have to buy the whole model to get the pod.

The pod looks to be shaped to the wing contour, but you could make up a bracket to fit it to and then attach that to other models. I have done that on several models and saw this one recently used to power up a DLG. That pod is self contained, so all you need to do is feed the ESC wire in to the RX.
