The motor being up front will help (I am used to an EZ Star). We shall see once owners start reporting what motors and batteries they used...

I know its probably been asked already...but any clue when the easyglider pro will be available in US. I am debating on getting the easy glider electric or waiting for the pro...any word??

I would definitely wait for the Pro version.

Skimmed the PDF for the pro, but not knowing enough about the standard version, what are the main advantages of the Pro?

Thanks,

If you don't need a brushless in-runner, the regular EZGE works fine, imo. I'm sure those looking for higher power-on peformance will appreciate the 'Pro', however. As for the new wing connectors, they're probably terrific, but I pretty much always leave my wings connected anyway, so it's not a factor for me. I'm not at all trying to run down the Pro, but just offering my opinion that the regular EZGE is pretty cool as is, and works fine. If the regular power system is fine for you, and you usually will leave the wings attached, there probably isn't any big advantage to the 'Pro' version, I'd think.

The Pro has a re-enforced, much more spacious nose section to allow for modern direct drive brushless outrunners. The battery space is also much bigger. The new spinner provides better aerodynamics, especially as the prop blades fold much better to the contour of the fuselage.

Most people want to go brushless anyway. The Pro comes without drive unit and is cheaper than the old Electric version.

Widely available - I don't know. Otherwise the dates are on the MPX homepage.

Thank you Jurgen for the wonderful videos.

I noticed in the one for the Blizzard, that there were two instances where they rocketed straight up out of the video frame.

Were the climb rates really that fast? (or is it a video compression artifact)

They were indeed that fast - and considering that I usually followed the slower one of the two ...

Wow, those Blizzards were pulling some serious G's at times!

How do they fly power-off? Or are they really supposed to be powered planes with a glider-like form.

"A high-performance hot-line model exploiting ELAPOR® technology. Modern brushless motors in conjunction with high-performance LiPo batteries provide the power for vertical hand-launches with either of the recommended power systems.

Breath-taking high-speed passes - especially with the upgrade power system - and a superb glide angle thanks to the MPX wing airfoil, with a thickness of only 8.9%.

Neither is the model a slouch when it comes to thermalling - the BLIZZARD’s low all-up weight and carefully optimised aerodynamic layout enable the machine to keep up with many a conventional “floater”. The aeroplane has great aerobatic potential, but is nevertheless easy to land slowly - “like a feather” - if the braking system (both ailerons raised) is used.

At the slope you can really let the BLIZZARD tear up the sky in good lift.

The wings feature two CFRP spars and four supplementary spar caps which endow the structure with great torsional rigidity and bending strength, while the fuselage features GRP longerons and a large number of innovative plastic parts. The net result is a highly practical aeroplane for everyday flying.


Features
*Ultra-broad speed range
*Low sinking speed, good glide angle
*Kit includes supplementary “glider nose-cone” with aero-tow option
*Landing aid - both ailerons raised
*Can be finished using any standard spray-can paints after prior treatment with MULTIprimer # 60 2700
*Pre-fabricated moulded ELAPOR® parts
*High-quality plastic components
*Aileron servos connect automatically when the wings are attached to the fuselage
*Optional second elevator servo for supplementary rudder function

Specification:
*Wingspan 1380 mm
*Overall length 910 mm
*All-up weight min. 725 g
*Total surface area 19.4 dm²
*Wing loading approx. 37.4 g/dm²
*RC functions Aileron, elevator (optional rudder), throttle, spoilers (both ailerons up) "
