Volantex Ranger 2000 $45.99 with free shipping


You don't need a 2 meter plane, but for $46 you know you want one.

https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32822635158.html

Or search Ali Express for "Volantex Ranger 2000 V757-8 2000mm Wingspan EPO FPV Aircraft RC Airplane KIT".

Listed for $49.99, then they have a $2 store coupon plus $2 new customer coupon and free shipping.

Will try. At least if it won't ship, I can file a claim with AliEx.

Hello Hank

Glad to hear you gt a Good one.

I Build & fly 2 & 3 Meter Non Contest Elec gliders so I was excited to try this Type Glider for a change of Pace

It's very L I G H T so I should have kept that in mind when flying it.

I Removed the Landing Wheel and it's foam cover so I could get inside the Fuse to run the misc Servo Leads etc and secure the Radio Rcvr.etc
Balanced & rebalanced everything & used the Full range of Throttle settings to try to Tame it Down. No good

Also Checked the Wing Incidence: It was 3 Degrees UP !! (The Horiz Stab was Level AND There was NO Down Thrust on the Motor !!


Finally decided I'd had ENOUGH!! and GAVE UP!! Got the Local "Experts" involved and they asked "What Kind of Radio and Where did you Get ??

WHOA !!!From a guy I didn't Know .............At a Garage Sale !!! Strike One !!!

That could have been the Problem ALL along !! Took ALL the Guts out of the glider, put it away till this Summer, Used the Radio for Target Practice AND we'll try it again!!

Oh MY!! I didn't know Eating Crow was SooooooooooTasty !!! Regards rcroger2001

I don't think it's a shipping issue but a price mistake issue.
