Mini-Review

Volantex Phoenix V2 2000mm Wingspan EPO


Hi
A mini review and some small upgrades on the Volantex Phoenix V2 2000mm Wingspan EPO glider.

My Shopping experience:
Bought the first one on Banggood. It went missing somewhere in China 😊
Banggood sent me a second one. Arrived broken☹
The third one I have ordered from https://www.der-schweighofer.at/. It’s under the name “MODSTER PHOENIX V2 2000MM” (same plane) and they had a big discount. This time, it has arrived in mint condition.

What I like:
Plug-in system for the wings on the fuselage using a snap lock (see pic.).
Flap servo is “inverted” (see pic.). You can use two standard servos for flaps with Y connection.
A lot of place in the front fuselage. Got an elevated “balcony” for the receiver (see pic.).
Plastic fuselage.

What I don’t like:
Very low-grade servos. 3 broke after few flights without any hard landings.
A bit heavy and needs about 15gr in the tail for a 3S 2200mah.
Spinner looks a bit flimsy.

Flight experience:
It flies a bit faster than Multiplex EasyGlider.
I do not think that it's very good with thermal soaring. Did not fly a lot so I am not sure about it. Please comment on this if you have other experience.

Some ideas:
Address the servos issue!
If you choose to stay with the original servos: Check servos carefully before each takeoff and
Install servo covers.
There is an opening in the rear end of the body that enables you to add a balancing weight inside the body.
I have added a tube inside the body where the wing rods are (see pic.). That prevents the rods from contacting the servo cables each time I insert them.
I have changed to Aero-naut propeller.

Bottom line, for the right price it is a very nice value for money PNP glider…

it thermal soars very well...just make sure CG is correct.
No weight has been added to tail.
Never take wing off..
I find it lighter than my phoenix 2000 V1 and a better soarer because it is lighter.

where can I get the wing rods for the 2000 V2?
thanks

Hi
Best if you buy it from schweighofer.
This looks like it:
https://www.der-schweighofer.com/MOD...stange-a283271
Send them an email and ask.
If they do not have it, I looked it up. It's a 0.3" (7.8mm) hollow aluminum rod (21cm and 47cm)
Not sure 8mm will fit in.
Check online.
Good luck with your search

Good news
For me, ordering a whole plane to Israel - Schweighofer was safer, faster, and even cheaper than China's options. You are right, ordering a small part from them is not economic.
Safe flying
