First electric park flyer

Guys,
I'm after a first park flyer. Something I can chuck in the car and fly. Flying in parks about 2/3 football pitches in size. Public about so foamie prolly best. Something fun, aerobatic and decent airtime on a charge. I'm an experienced sloper, but not well versed on what available in power. Any suggestions please most welcome,
TIA,
J.

You are in the Glider forum, so I presume you want a glider type aircraft.

Multiplex Blizzard or merlin.

Yes, glider.
I think the blizzard might be too quick for the local park.
I like the radian, that's the sort of thing, but I would prefer ailerons for some aeros in the glide on tje way down.
Cheers all,
J.

Then look at the Multiplex Merlin or the Easy Glider Pro.

I can recommend the Easy Glider Pro. I have the Elektro, and it's my favorite over my Radian now. Fun and not to difficult to fly, and enough power. And no bad habits.

Thanks Guys, That gives me something to look at. Either the EG or the merlin look like they fit the bill, i start a look out for either

Arne, nice pics - yikes that looks cold. Glad you enjoyed the maiden.

Cheers,
J.

What about a passer x with motor?
How would that compare with the EGP?
