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.

Well worth every penny or dollar I havent flown for 25 years, bought the ARF version use futaba radio gear, good power from standard esc and motor. I have also cut in the flaps very stable in flight. Have in flight move on youtube Mralboot666. Or search phoenix 2000 glider.

Mixed reviews everywhere but.. CONS Phoenix has very poor electronics. They are throw away quality on arrival. Count on spending money to replace them before you fly! The inbuilt servo on mine failed. Many others the same. The rear clevis is so weak, mine broke second flight and lost he whole plane in the resulting crash. Do not use them - replace them all. Wings at the tip snap easy if you land off centre. They break at the end of the reinforced section - reinforce with tape. Buy a second shell only as there are no spares for the Phoenix on sale. PRO - When you fix everything - it will fly well. Only good value if you have all the parts in your hobby kit.

This is a fine glider if you are a reasonably accomplished pilot. I bought the bare bones version and equipped it with a Turnigy 2217-16 motor, 2200-3S lipo and 30A plug'n'play ESC. Be sure to secure the clevise arms from spreading with a short piece of shrink tube or silicon tubing.

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.
