electric glider Passer X.

Goodday

I am interested in getting from the Revolution shop ebay, the Passer x 1.8 metre span electric glider with the outrunner brushless suggested. However I would like to hear from anyone who has purchased one regarding its strength and flight character.

Thanks

Thanks Ray Ray

Please let me know how you get on flying it. My hesitation in buying one is that I think it may be a bit too fragile, ie an eggshell fuselarge that cracks up very easy. But that may be just my predudice as an old builder who overbuilds everthing.!!

Tardis,
I just left ray ray's place and the fuselage on that passer is strong. If anything, it's overbuilt. Very strong and light.

The Passer flew great last night I put the CG at 4.5 CM . mounted the servos in the tail it needed the tail weight. did not have to trim a thing. The passer is alot of plane for the money.

I have found your comments most usefull, I shall order a Passer x. What is the landing speed like with that Thin wing section? . The Passer should be aerobatic, is it?

G'day James

Just ordered one of these for belting around the local park. 3-5 hockey fields side by side, with a nice cricket pitch, aka runway, in the middle.

Mate of mine had the PTERO X and was very happy with the build quality. Predictably the radio was garbage, but I'm gonna run my dx7 on it. Be here in a week or so. Looking forward to it.
