just picked up mine also... same plan stock for 1st flight then ar6400 going into it and maybe lights for night gliding. 25" wingspan and 10" long so should be close to being perfect with some weight savings. Good thing is it runs on 145mah lipo nice.

Wonder what the motor draws may not want to use stock setup with brick we'll see. I love Gravity Hobby - you can not beat their prices for cheap rtf and simple 3ch flying, I hope this one is a hit like my J3 Cub from GH was.

Flying weight 26grams Wow this is the smallest glider available!

2 spare noses. At 26g the original would have to be made of paper to damage it, surely

Very nice looker, different. If someone made it 3 channel with a 4 channel brick, the extra channel could raise and lower a fling out propped motor.

What kind of realistic range is on that 2 channel 2.4GHz setup ? my experiences of the frequency haven't been too good with sunlight, believe it or not.
I'd gladly pay postage for any, rather than see them get binned !

Slider, you got dibs on my stock gear once I've done the brick mod - wouldn't it be something if this micro glider flies decent + looks and it'll be a hit! along the same lines as fox multiplex but for bricks instead of traditional rc setup. Be neat to try some ultra micro sloping but not sure wingerons could be done with brick. Either way cant wait to pickup as spare parts fuse wings tail without tx/rx/stock gear.

Cheers With winter upon us, this one ought to see some cool fettling for the warmer weather next year.
Could make for some very different online competitions...like, say, flight duration, or longest glide without power, or even a type of glide limbo run under a lowering height pole and powering out to climb again. Current record being beaten with new video entries.
I hope someone does one completely 'wrong', with bomb doors and combat markings lol
The video i'd most like to view, would be evening flying with LED light system, over an all day warmed up sea, thermalling around.

You know, this is EXACTLY why I don't like signing onto RC groups. I'll stumble across a thread like this, and have to buy something. I hate you guys.

Eagerly awaiting a flight report
