Esprit Model Albatros 2.4S/E

Has anyone on this thread built and flown this plane? I'd like to get a feel for the difficulty of construction and programming on a DX18.

Thanks!

A friend of mine, a top U.S. sailplane guy, just got the DX-18, which he would not do if the radio could not do everything a competitive pilot would need in their sailplane. So I fully expect there will be no problem programming an Albatros 2.4S/E. Best of luck.

Jaizon. Thanks for the vote of confidence about the radio I plan to buy. I have no doubt the DX18 is the right radio for a serious sailplane...my main concern is about the build. I've looked at the Horizon Mystique and the thread about that plane points out several build glitches that need to be repaired at the kit level. So I'm looking for opinions about the Albatros.
Thanks for your reply.

Jaizon. Thank you. That's very helpful to know. I sort of figured I'd have to try to speak with someone in Europe to get answers.

Good info.

thanks, again.
