Hobby People Quest 2.1M
Rx-R Brushless-Powered High-Performance Electric Sailplane

This is a Hobby People Quest 2.1M Rx-R Brushless-Powered High-Performance Electric Sailplane. The Quest - a thermal seeking high performance molded-foam sailplane for those who are ready for more! Developing the Quest meant keeping the advanced and beginner pilot in mind. From the fuselage with a bolt-on tail and landing wheel to the powerful 800Kv brushless motor for quick climb-outs, every detail was considered to enhance your flying experience. We scrutinized every element and material for a foam glider. The 2-piece wing utilizes a sleeker airfoil, allowing the Quest to glide from one end of the field to the other in search of a thermal or speed at the slope. The elegant design of the fuselage reminds you of a great looking sailplane with enough room to introduce your own accessories, such as FPV and LED lights, all without losing sight of the basics.

The first thing you notice after you install the wings is the large presence of the Quest. The Quest has a wingspan of over 6 and a half feet! That’s 527 square inches of wing surface for the Quest to easily float with the lightest of thermals or rising air at the slope - all while keeping the Quest flying weight down to 42 ounces. The included ESC will allow for 35 amps of continuous current draw and 2 to 4 cell Li-Po batteries. It's also programmable, allowing you to adjust Battery Type, Voltage Cut-Off, Acceleration, Timing and Brake (requires optional programming card, sold separately).

Sometimes the need for speed is necessary! The included 800kv brushless motor gets the Quest to altitude fast! Combined with it's large 12x8 folding propeller, it delivers the power you need and folds tight against the fuselage, eliminating power-off drag. The Quest includes efficient air ducts for cooling the motor, ESC and Li-Po battery. A scale-like landing wheel is included to allow you to perform scale-like landings.

This Rx-R version of the Quest 2.1M features preinstalled flaps, so you can add crow and other advanced sailplane features to your flying experience. A radio system, battery and charger are not included and must be purchased separately. See the Items Required, But Not Included section below for a complete list.

Features:

• EPO Molded Foam Construction with Decals Applied

• Quick and Easy Final Assembly - No Glue Required

• Two-Piece Wing with Carbon Fiber Wing Joiners and Removable Tail Assembly

*This Rx-R version of the Quest features two separate aileron servos and two separate flap servos, each joined with a Y-harness. This allows you to control the ailerons and flaps independently using a 5-channel radio system. If you would like to separate each of the aileron and flap servos to enable advanced sailplane functions, such as aileron differential mixing, crow mixing and more, the Y-harnesses can be removed and the servos can be plugged into your receiver separately. A 6-channel or more radio system that supports advanced sailplane programming and flight modes, such as the Airtronics SD-10GS (P/N 751755) will be required.

I saw one on the shelves too in Irvine and thought it was looking great!

Only reason I didn't jump on one is I'm on vacation and couldn't fit the box in my vehicle with the luggage..
