Built from crash-resistant EPO, and offering full 4ch control, this is a great platform for both beginners and experienced pilots alike.

Turnigy AA LSD 2200mah Low Self Discharge (ready to use)
david you can get either Turnigy nano-tech 180mAh 2S 25C Lipo Pack (E-flite micro series compatible) (USA Warehouse)or ZIPPY Flightmax 350mAh 2S 20C (USA Warehouse). Or you can go to the GLOBAL warehouse. I hope this helps.
You'd do better getting the 25C 250mah 2S packs from CheapBatteryPacks, I have a couple myself and really like them. They fit well and have great energy delivery over discharge time. CheapBatteryPacks offers fast inexpensive first class shipping, so in this case I'd go with them over the HK US warehouse. On the other hand, it's got dirt cheap planes delivered in perfect condition, I'm happy I got mine from HK US!
Do a "Quick Search" for "Skysurfer" and you will find parts available in the international warehouse. Prop is available and reasonable price, but canopy is included with the fuselage set, but still reasonable price.
This plane has an all-in-one Rx/ESC/servos unit, so if you change the Rx then you need to also get a new ESC and servos.
Even nicer than I anticipated, looks majestic in the air and its smooth running motor really gets it up there. Well made, my only gripe is that Nine Eagles' servos, while hobby grade, are more low end hobby grade, not as precise or responsive as I'd like, and can be jammed much too easily if a loose battery wire even touches them. I'd LOVE to see Durafly outdo this with a 2S brushless motor, Plush ESC and 1.7g HK-5320 in something like a Grob motorglider. The Fournier looks nice but it's WAY too heavy, which is why I purchased this. Come on, Durafly, I bet you can do it!

The plane flies great! However the electronics suck! I had to add the electronics from a UMX beast and this little glider is great! But why should I have to do so much R-N-D for a ready to fly model. Buy the kit and make it your own. That being said, I added a belly wheel from a UMX stryker and it really does a great job of protecting the glider on pavement. I Love the way this plane flies! Thermals without effort and has no nasty tendencies ie: tip stalling. I would purchase another one but only for the air frame.
