The HUGE box arrived damaged as you can see in the picture. The box was wrapped in two Parcel Force bags leading me to assume that the damage occurred at the hands of Parcel Force and was not the fault of the original shipping company. Luckily there was NO damage at all to the contents, not even a tiny blemish.


All of the parts are wrapped in bubble wrap protecting the inner contents.


The HUGE wing straight out of the top bag , as you can see there is no damage at all, the bubble wrap did its job.


On the underside of the wing you can see the pre-installed servo's and the carbon rod supporting the aileron, white plastic tape covers the servo wiring keeping everything tidy. At the root you can seen the quick release tab and the shadow of the two inner carbon rods that support the wing.


The pre-installed generic servo is unmarked, probably a typical 9g servo.


A close up of the quick release tab, the exits of the servo cabling and the inserts for the aluminium supports that help connect the wing pieces


My XK A800 glider placed on top of one of the wings to help gain a sense of scale...


The huge rudder, hinges are plastic and of course pre-installed. The connecting saddle and pre installed control horn are moulded from a thick off-white plastic.


A close up of the rudder connector and the servo horn.


The underside of the horizontal stabilizer shows the preinstalled carbon rods and the plastic elevator saddle.


Horizontal stabilizer upper surface.


The two aluminium rods that support the huge wing. Picture is for size reference.


Like some of the smaller gliders this model comes with a two part canopy. The black plastic canopy is the generic type used to keep the model as aerodynamic as possible, the additional white moulded foam canopy is an FPV canopy which provides you with a flat surface used to mount your camera and/or gymbal etc.


The supplied sticker set is more than enough to add some visible detail to a vanishing white glider.


A simple manual is provided


The accessory pack containing all the servo connectors and push rods along with a servo extension that doubles as a splitter /2in1. The folding prop is also colour matched to the decals and from other reviewers the prop is quite well balanced from the factory.


The main fuselage is blown plastic and it is quite large compared to my standard "parkflyer" planes. Everything was pre-installed ( luckily ) as the servos for rudder and elevator are installed at the very rear and having to root out some suitable extensions would have been a pain. The fuselage is surprisingly quite rigid and very smooth, installed internally are two plywood plates offering some extra rigidity along with a base to install your receiver, battery and whatever else you may need.


While ive been walking around taking photos etc the wife kept calling me Captain Caveman due to the fuselage looking like a club.


A close of the wing section were you can see the holes to allow the various wires and supporting rods to pass though.


Internal cockpit


To the rear you can see the wing brace and saddle and down through the fuselage the servo extensions are visible.


The motor................ its a big one. The specs and stamp say this is a 1050kv 4023 !! brushless motor


A metal motor firewall helps spread the stress from the prop and motor.


Its a wheel...............................it spins............


All pretty with her stickers it needs some colour under the wings for orientation but up top it there is enough differentiating colour to be able to see it at a distance.............. if your flying upside down.
