A glider for a beginner


Hi! I was just curious what would be a good glider for a beginner that will be doing hand launches(so probilly an electric glider)
And i will need a plane that is pretty small,
maybe 1-2Meters, and something not to hard to build.

If you're looking for a powered glider to use as a primary trainer, i'd look into Darwin garrison's Push-E-cat, because it's made of EPP foam and uses a fairly standard S400 system. http://www.rc-aero.com .

I myself have not flown the push-e-cat myself, so you might do a search on ezone and read up on it.

I actually taught myself on a DAW S1-26 EPP foam glider, launching off a light hi-start. Also a very nice first glider/plane; just don't expect to contest performance out of it. Pretty darn near indestructible -- EPP is definitely the way to go!

G'luck.

Do check out the Just from ES Composites (http://escomposites.com). It's hand-launch glider sized, and it flies as good as it packs small. See my "Just" shredding air post earlier in this forum.
