Another motor glider with a folding prop on the nose. I was hoping for something a bit more interesting, like a pop up motor or something.

The Tucan is actually not a new model, but the Tucano from Novaflight, which MPX took over. Here are some pictures:

Interesting - I am about to purchase an EasyGliderPro for medium range / high altitude FPV flying. I wonder if the new Solius would be a better choice, and if the canopy is transparent enough for the camera to sit behind.

Jürgen, did you get a chance to look at the Solius IRL?

How could I? The model will be presented first time in public at the Nuremberg Toy Fair.

Despite being a clear canopy, I doubt that it would be suitable to host a video camera.

For FPV I would use a pusher or twin motor model.

Just in case you don't know the legal restrictions/limits:
