The Airfield Giant Glider is an excellent sailplane for the pilot looking to soar the skies all day on a single charge! With a wingspan of 94.5 inches the Giant Glider will sail the skies for hours as long as you keep it soaring in the thermals. Take it to the cliffs or a beach and enjoy the graceful nature of gliding. When combined with a brushless outrunner motor and brushless electronic speed controller, this glider does not need to be towed. Toss it in the air and power away with authority. If you get a speed craving convert the power system to the included 65mm ducted fan unit and be exhilarated with speed.
When the wind calms down or the thermals diminish the power setup is enough to help you find that next soaring session. The large wingspan makes for an awesome gliding machine and is one of our finest gliders. Built in wingtips are also molded to ensure a true to scale airfoil allowing the pilot to experience smooth and versatile flying characteristics. This model is at home gliding on a slope. Its thermal sailing performance is exceptional and the wings are sufficiently strong to withstand some aerobatic maneuvers. Like a full-scale counterpart the wing form looks especially graceful and unique in the air. The combination of the low drag horizontal and vertical stabilizers and uncompromised aerodynamic design of the sleek fuselage provide unprecedented gliding performance at low speeds and high wing loadings.
If you do happen to smack the side of the cliff or have a bad landing, the EPO construction ensures less damage to the airframe. The removable canopy gives you quick and easy access to your receiver and battery changes. The single wheel under the belly of the fuselage serves as a landing gear. This Airfield Giant Glider is a very capable glider in an awesome Kit package. The airframe is your canvass. Create and assemble the most awesome glider with your own servos and power system and enjoy the beauty of flight.
