New Product
Parkzone radian - New 2m Span RTF Glider.

I was just about to order a parkzone spitfire and was wishing parkzone would do a glider, popped onto their website and spotted this...

showing availability in mid-Oct. Looks to be adequately powered and larger than the e-flite ascent at 2 meter span.

Not a Park 480, but the same brushless 480 we use in the T-28 and Corsair. We started with a smaller motor but switched to this one for more reliability. One thing's for sure, there's no lack of climb performance.

When flown with the 1300 mAh battery included with the RTF, the cg works well and the airplane doesn't fly heavy at all. Put in a heavier battery, though, and you can tell the difference due to the extra weight and the forward cg.

We should have some video posted tomorrow. Not sure why it didn't make it up on the web today.

-->No sooner did I post this, than the video has appeared on the ParkZone website!

This is a nice, relaxing airplane, and you don't have to be a sailplane fan to enjoy it. The performance is very good.

First production run is almost done, and they should be hitting the water in the next few days, so the late October release date is real.

I thought Horizon Hobby was in Champaign, IL. Never knew it was in the UK.

I was tempted by the PZ Corsair, but this looks more relaxing!

Lip - you can google plenty of UK suppliers for PZ products in the UK...

Nice, understated graphics (I've been looking at too many 3D planes lately).

Good bundle with the full range 2.4 GHz receiver.
