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 with plywood formers, making it almost indestrucatable. Usually reserved for baby toys*. 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 includes 1 servo per aileron for strong control surface movement plus there is a pre-moulded slot so you can add your own flaps later. All 4 9g servos, speed controller and brushlessoutrunner are included. Just add your own receiver and battery to be flight ready! This really is a super strong glider that takes 15 minutes to put together and virtually indestructible.
turn on TX - set throttle to max.
Check prop removed
At the first break in the bleeps immediately move your throttle to zero.
That will teach the system your throttle range and all should be well.
Put the prop back on
I have just replaced the motor in mine after about 20 hours use mostly in high winds. The very strong winds lately were just too much for it in the end.
I used www.link have flowin it twice this motor and it seems pretty comparable to the original. I am running a 5000mAh 3s in this glider and using it for training. I also have it fitted with LEDs all down both sides of the wings and fuselage - ideal for night flying and for student training as they light up when you switch over.
If you go for this motor, just remove the entire old motor and all the backing plates etc, put the metal X fixing plate that comes with it on the front of the plane and drill through, bolting the motor on. I did that and it's been absolutely fine. Good Luck!
Can anybody tell me the diameter of the rudder / elevator push rods on this glider as the clevises on mine were broken on arrival...
I bought some replacement Nylon Clevis 1.8 x 27mm from HK but they just slide over these push rods with room to spare.
Basically i need some replacement Clevis and am having trouble finding the right ones.
received the phoenix 200 to day and it is damaged not happy puts the damper's on it tried to sort thing's out with HobbyKing but i would have to pay again for the postage, this means its costing me more not happy, this is not the only thing that i am not happy about i ordered a controller it has not arrived and they tell me it has it just seams you cant win with these people i don't feel i can trust them so might have to go some where ells in future
WHAT TYPE OF LYPO CONNECTOR have the plug and fly version? HT60? two Best lipo for long time fly on normal fly(plain), without modification , for put inside the glider? plain I would use the lipo to take off and gain altitude when there is little wind and I am too low. (so I think for plain big lypo, for sloap, not so big) thx
- The connector is a XT60
- For the battery: I fly with a 1300mAh when there is not much wind and a 1500mAh when windy, if I do that it's just for a little ballast otherwise a 1300mAh widely enough to steal almost an hour. But beware, this is a glider which do not call too often the engine otherwise the flight time literally fall over and I do not think the esc and the motor is made **for this.
I have acheived this but I am not sure how, first power up the ESC on full throttle, it will cycle through a menu with 1, 2 or 3 beeps, you can then return throttle to off position to enter these menus and there are more beeps. Putting the throttle to full position after these beeps then changes the functions of the ESC. I wish I could remember the beep sequence to get the brake on, but I just kept beeping away until the brake activated - it can be done! Cheerz Kevin
1250x240x121mm 3289g, You can not take it in airline cabin, because its too long, You can give it for check in language stating it as fragile item. Emirates will handle with care and they will hand over to you at your destination by hand, fragile items are not send on language belts.
i recieved my Phoenix today it was double boxed this seems to be the norm with Hobbyking, on inspection its one of the best gliders i have purchased from Hobbyking todate and i have a few i hope to put it together today ready for the first decent day we get and try it out if the UK store still have them in stock buy one before they disappear
My 1st UK purchase arrived on 16/7 having been ordered on 12/7, however I am unable to make the motor run. I have tried the ESC on another motor & it works OK but alternative ESCs do not make the motor turn. It rocks clockwise & anticlockwise alternately thro a very small arc making a regular set of different beeps. Any ideas please?
I had a similar problem with an electric model of mine, It was as if the motor had to re learn the throttle range each time. Try plugging in with throttle at bottom wait for it to beep at you, move throttle to top (should hear a beep) then return throttle to bottom. Wait 5 seconds then try the motor! It should now run. If not, I dont know!!! A question for you! Will this model accept a 2200 3 cell lipo or is there not enough room? Cheers
no problems at all with mine ,the esc works perfectly fine sounds like esc problems to me ,maidened today the flaps are brilliant it comes in that slow i can catch it
best glider i have had and i have had a few ,no problems when it arrived ,well packed no damage, i installed the extra servos and made the flaps work ,cog is spot on maidened today with a 3 cell 1550 mah gens ace ,1hrs flying time gives me 4 min of prop power,floats round great and the flaps bring it to a crawl ,you can catch it lol, on a good day with the right conditions you could keep this up for a very long time ,the composite body is very strong and gives it a nice look ,overall very happy and would deff recommend, anly thing i did was remove the deans connector from the esc ,hate the damn things and put a seperate ubec in and dont forgret to thread lock the motor screws or it will come away
I am running a 5000mAh 3s in this glider and using it for training. I also have it fitted with LEDs all down both sides of the wings and fuselage - ideal for night flying and for student training as they light up when you switch over. It's an excellent machine, very robust and very easy to fly. With the smaller 1300-1500mAh 3s it will glide around effortlessly or fit a big old battery for tons of powered flight. Very nearly my favourite plane.
