Phoenix 2000 EPO Composite R/C Glider (ARF)

Phoenix 2000 EPO Composite R/C Glider (ARF)
Phoenix 2000 EPO Composite R/C Glider (ARF)

This 2 meter wingspan glider takes 15 minutes to assemble and lasts a lifetime!
The wings and tail are made from tough EPO foam. However, the fuselage is made from a really strong blow moulded nylon skin*, Usually reserved for baby toys, with plywood formers, making it almost indestrucatable.

The virtually indestrucatable fuselage is smooth and ridgid yet still light enough for the glider to perform. Both the main wing and tail are screwed into place and the two wing halves have a carbon fiber rod for added strength.

The main wing requires 1 servo per aileron for strong control surface movement plus there is a pre-moulded slot so you can add your own flaps later. To complete this model you will require 4 9g servos, a 30A speed controller, a brushless outrunner, your own transmitter and receiver (Tx/Rx) and a 1300~1800mAh Lipoly battery.

This really is a super strong glider that takes 15 minutes to put together.

*Having a blow moulded fuselage on a glider is an excellent solution however it is not popular amongst manufacturers due to its high cost, effectively doubling moulding costs.

Can anyone please tell me what does come with this arf package? Brings propeller, horns, clevis and control rods, even for flaps? Thanks in advance.

If you want flaps, you'll need 2 x 9g servos, otherwise it does come with the control horns for the flaps. Everything else, you simply need a transmitter, receiver, battery and charger.

Hello, I earn this glider for around sixt month, it's a very good product for the price. I have used it as a first model, it fly gently and is capable of soaring decently. Jusr be warned that it's more soaring oriented than hotlining, if you use it for fast pass & acrobatic you will have to upgade motor & esc. Also a good idea is to change the stock servo, at least for ailerons, for some HTX900 witch are stronger and faster. Last concern for me, there is lot of thing to assemble once on the field witch take bit of time. Anyway it's a good glider, witch have very good apearance (looks very good in ther air) and nice flying caracteristics.

my preferred setup: 4 hxt 900 servos (of course) 4 nylon clevises turnigy sk3 2830 920kv bl motor hobbywing 30am esc, since turnigy plush 30 esc is on back order turnigy mode 2 transmitter and receiver i'd fly up about 800 ft or more and shut off the motor. the wind and thermals take over. the pheonix 2000 would go upward. loops, rolls and inverted flights are easy. i prefer gliding. this is a well made and well designed glider. handles wind like nothing, floats and is acrobatic. awesome plane. one of my better purchases.

Bought the kit version. Arrived in double packaging and in good condition. All parts wrapped in bubble wrap. This is my second Phoenix 2000 glider! Love this plane. Easy to fly. Glides very well with flaps.
