Easy Glider Pro or Easy Star


I'm busy waiting for the Easy Star to come into stock... anywhere that will post reasonably to Australia.

I see a few shops have the Easy Glider Pro...

Am I right though in saying you can fit quite a bit more inside the EZ*, as opposed to the EGP? Is that the main reason to go EZ*?

The Easystar is a pusher, no prop in the field of view.

On the other side, the Glider is flying much better, flight time is longer .

You should buy the Easy Star and the Easy Glider wings.

Then you have a great combo whit both cons and pros.

EZ* + EGP Wings seems to be the best deal - BUT.. just wish the damn EZ* would come into stock somewhere.

I'm based in Perth, WA and spent a long time looking for an easystar within Australia, as you say they all seem to be out of stock, finally received one last wednesday from Col Taylor models - give them a go. Shipping was quick (around a week) and from memory the cost was something like $130 or 140 all up.

Hey Cralis... Towerhobbies.com - GO!
Thats were ive gotten both of mine from, about $120 too and a week...
Order it now!
We can do some cool formation flying then

BTW in all seriousness I would go an EZglider, my friend has one (non FPV) and it flys much better, much faster & you wont get bored with it as quick!

EDIT: I just checked towerhobbies and their out of stock lol...

Nope - Tower says Late Sept.

You got me excited there man!
I'm kinda locked into the EZ* though... Got the right motor, esc, EZPod etc... But might get the wings...

Damn... I was getting happy there!
We're looking at the same place, eh?

Multiplex make things in batches, so sometimes it takes a while before they get round to making another batch of them and then you'll suddenly find them all over the place. I had the same problem trying to find a mplex Fox for ages and then suddenly everywhere had them at the same time.

well one is spare bits 4 me, one is my old workhorse FPV/UAV, one is for a mate with a rvosd and another is his spare bits... when I say spare bits I mean theyre destroyed lol...

Sorry I was just teasing more then anything ... going back a few months and there were heaps everywhere... for like $70!!

I had the same thing where the EZ run out of stock but it was worse, I only just my 1st one flying and then FPVing with no problems, then on my 1st recorded flight I totaled it when testing out my failsafe hehe...

Had to wait months for them to get back into stock...

BTW what motor did you get? my EZ* motor is the same as the one I run in my funjet
ARC 28-37-3

Not that you could get an FJ easily anyway

Dude you just want a foamy glider!
Parkzone radians are around... theyre kickass...
depends how keen you are, flying wings are sweet too...

Damn I need to go to bed, flying @ 6:30am tomorrow - cant wait
