Mibo Vision Mini 2.2 meter *** VIDEO ***


I dont have any special affilliation with Esprit Model or Mibo i am just excited to find a plane with the set of attributes that the Vision Mini has. I also want to thank ZB at Esprit Model, www.espritmodel.com for getting these little multi purpose gliders of excellent quality into the USA. The fit and finish is very nice quality light and strong, really strong! I did a sick Ludicrous loop and it hardly even flexed the wings at all! I had Dave Hauch of www.rc-builds.com build this little beauty. I have been flying this nice light (43oz) little glider for a couple of days now and I am really liking the way it handles. It is great for light air sloping/Acro with is all I have done with it. This one is on my "A Team" right now and fly's very similar to the Espada R in terms of lightness and big throws on the surfaces. Mine has 94802 (ail), 94809 (flp) and some JR DS3421's I had sitting around in perfect condition (Rud/Elv). I am running a 5 cell Elite 2/3A NiMh Volt-watch and ATX 92104 10ch RX. The Model comes with a utility sized fuse that as an electric can take a 2200 MaH 4s LiPo. Also they have protective wing bags like Baudis, Breta, Etc... for an extra nominal cost. See the link and pics below for more details.



Here is the new video link. Click on the Vimeo link to watch it in 720i HD if you want.

BTW, they make it in spread-tow too! Under 40oz AUW!

awesome flying Phil.

i was really impressed with this plane too. first thing i noticed was the big chord to the wing, and how light it was. had i good feeling it was going to work for what you.

you don't even have to tell me how good it performs. if you still own it after 2 flights, and haven't sold it already. i know it's good!

If I was in the market for a plane of this size, this is the one I'd go for, over that new one with the silly name that's under development...

Mini Vision VS Espadita


They fly very similar but the Vision Mini has much more throws due to the construction so If you want to do Acro the Vision will be more lively. Its cheaper too! I love the Espadita but Jaro needs to get the linkage travels way increased.

Thanks! Exactly what I was looking for. Any differences in the AUW?

I've had one on order now for 3 weeks. It seems that they cut the noses off a few of them and put them in stock?????? The slopers are not in stock at this time.

I flew mine on Monday for a good hour, it is really smooth predictable plane, two friends also flew it and both agreed it's a keeper. Ian

If Phil thinks its a keeper then I better put one on order. Or, I'll just buy Phil's in two months.
