elec glider help...after MPX EZ glider


looking for a elec glider 2m or bigger...i've flown the MPX EZ glider extensively and looking for a similar but bigger plane. The Cularis looks to be a good candidate but not sure how it flies. I'd like to stick to something that is not too difficult to assemble. Any suggestions?

Why not try the electric version?... Or are you not talking about the glider version having flown extensively?

If so, try the Radian Pro.

thanks Kenny! I meant the electric MPX EZ glider...i owned a Radian Pro prior and I never flew it because fastening the wings on that plane drove me crazy (i did like a lot of things about, especially the carbon they used to stiffen tail, wings,...) I should mention, I fly a ridge w/ heavy winds, usually always 20mph+ and I'm thinking something bigger might handle it better.

You don't need bigger, you need cleaner and heavier than foam. Suggest you spend a little time here: https://www.rcgroups.com/slope-97/

What you need is exactly what Andy W posted, a heavier cleaner and structurally rigid sailplane. If you don't want to break the bank with a fully molded composite model, there are many composites with glass fuselage and sheeted foam core wings which are fine with the kind of slope lift you are encountering, here are some reasonably priced examples:

Andy W i think is correct about what your looking for.

Please take a look at this web site and their products. You could easily modify one of their products with an electric motor while keeping the durability of the airplane for slope flying.
