Welcome to the club!

I see they are now available from HK's USA warehouse, for about $50.00. That should get a lot more people enjoying these planes!

Thanks lancer,
OMG! just flew 3 packs with gws 4025 - WOW WOW! 4025 makes this already super glider more superer! did 20 passes around the football field just a 1' off the ground so slow so stable! need to program 'break' and install light kit - don't think I'm going back to spinner prop

Wow ! elvill That sounds good and looks good . Well done elvill that looks Cool

Imagine if you took out the wing dihedral angle and sheeted the underside of the wing with some 1mm depron foam and added ailerons

seriously contemplated adding ailerons - but I like the way this one flies, figure it will be heavy enough with lights to stay 3ch - new prop can easily accommodate weight but wanna keep glide - couple extra bricks laying around so will definitely pickup a couple more airframes for sure!

Let us know how it does on a calm day, with some small thermals. The primary thing that would concern me with something this small for soaring is that it could get really, really small very fast.

Too true...

For this reason, I would suggest that everyone who flies one of these should be sure to have their name & address on their models. Thermals can occur all the way from nothing to tornado power, and for the most part, they are invisible.

thanks, perfect combination of duration, aerobatics, slow and fast flight - the 5g is very efficient, liteweight and powerful for the ar6400 - this glider loops endlessly- very powerful and super lite

sorry 'bout jacking your thread, The plane is wonderful, anyone can modify theirs if rtf breaks...
Nine Eagles SKY500 RC glider (2 min 23 sec)
floating around at 15% throttle, multiple loops vertical for a little bit

switched out 4025 with 4540 increased power/consumption about 15% going to better lipo, by all account these are lighter and much more powerful than the ones I been using. going to smaller plugs and removed lights, remounted motor and cut even more weight... converting at least one more SKY500 adding lights to it

Does anyone know if this will bind with the NE Micro Cessna transmitter. I had heard that there are compatibility issues between the various NE radio setups.

HK has the BNF version of this l'il bird for under $40USD in the USA warehouse with surprisingly cheap shipping to the east coast.
