Tnx PolarBear!!

i used watherbased airbrush paint, and it worked like a sharm
but it`s hard to get the paint to stick to the surfase, best result if you use a non glossy base color before you paint it in the color you want...

Good luck to you

A 9x6 should make it fly faster...
Just remember the T2836 1000kv motor is only a 300Watt motor ,
so best test with a Watt meter . . .

Where did you get the 9x6 prop...
got a link...



I was out on Sunday Last...
Had my first go at Slope Soaring with the Phoenix..
Handled very well, hand launched into the wind.Nice steady climb , court the lift and it was away..only need to use the motor once and that was only because I came to far into the hill to get lift...
Even the guy's at the club were impressed at how gentle
it was in flight for a "cheap Glider"
