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.

How do I order replacement prop blades? Are they available for clockwise motor rotation or how do I set up the motor for ccw?
 OldFartFlyer 1457 points
Take a look at this example on this HK web site - PRODUCT ID: CF-11x6. There are heaps of other similar props and spinners in the category - refer to the top of the product description and you will see the navigation directory tree. Heaps of choice. You'll find it hard to get a comprehensive range of folding props with reverse rotation. Much better to simply change the rotation of your motor by either swopping motor leads or programming your ESC. (See ESC instruction manual) For motor connection and rotation, see discussion threads on HK or other common hobby sites such as RCGroups.

Has anyone encounter elevator lag when you put this glider into a dive? There were several instances during a dive I pulled the elevator back slightly to adjust the dive angle but nothing happened 3 weeks ago I started a 45 degree dive from 400 ft up, but then it turned onto a straight dive at about 60 MPH, hit the pavement and completely spit the fuse front end like a peeled banana This happened in about 5 to 7 seconds. The elevator control was ineffective during the nose dive

Bad luck with your flight. I have not experienced elevator control problems with mine. After 55 flights, the only control limitation that I have experienced is with rudder. Mine is set to maximum throw yet at times I have had trouble getting my Phoenix to execute tidy flat turns on some headings into wind. I am currently fitting an 18mm extension down the full height of my rudder to increase the surface area. I note some other operators have modified their rudders as well. Overall, however, a nice multi-purpose glider.

It comes with folding props, 2 spinners, 4mm prop adapter, servo extension and all the control clevises/rods
 OldFartFlyer 1457 points
Also supplies fittings for both 3mm and 4mm motor shafts. So they cover all the bases. Again, you need to satisfy yourself about the quality of the gear.

Hi folks, Does the ARF version include the folding propeller and spinner? Does it include any long aileron servo leads? Does it include clevises and wire links etc? Many thanks
 OldFartFlyer 1457 points
Folding prop and spinner, together with blank nose cone all supplied in kit. Aileron servo extension leads also supplied. So too all clevises etc. Suggest however that you read through discussion comments on the quality of parts to satisfy yourself as to suitability for your purposes.

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.
