Part Number: AH-EFL5575



Product Description


Ask any of the thousands of pilots who have flown one. Radian® motor gliders are the sailplanes of choice if you want a quick and easy way to experience the thrill of RC soaring or relax with a quick flight. They are so easy to fly, even pilots with no soaring experience have been able to master the art of riding thermals after just a few flights.

The giant E-flite® Radian® XL 2.6m motor glider adds a whole new dimension of soaring excitement to the Radian® line while staying true to its heritage with simple elevator/rudder/throttle/spoiler controls.

Efficient 2.6-Meter Polyhedral Wing with Spoilers

The wing, which spans just over 8 1/2 feet (102 inches) tip to tip, has been designed to provide superb thermal-grabbing capabilities while minimizing drag for maximum endurance. When it's time to return to Earth, its fully-proportional, retractable spoilers will allow you to precisely manage your descent and use less area to land.

Full-Flying Horizontal Stabilizer

The E-flite® team designed the Radian® XL motor glider with a flying horizontal stabilizer for better pitch control. Unlike a fixed-position horizontal stabilizer with a hinged elevator, the entire stabilizer rotates up or down to provide extra aerodynamic force. The result is a big glider with superb pitch response at every speed.

Easy Assembly, Transport and Storage

Putting this massive flying machine together couldn't be easier. All you need is a few minutes and a Phillips-head screwdriver. The bolt-together wing comes in three pieces-a center section with spoilers and two outer sections. The 2-piece, full-flying elevator slides into the tail and bolts together.

Brushless Power and Lightweight Construction with Z-Foam™ Material

This combination gives the model an impressive power-to-weight ratio that translates into exhilarating launch performance. The lightweight airframe also makes the motor remarkably efficient at altitude so you can spend more time hunting for thermals.

    スパン2.6mは二段上反角と相まって十分なローリング安定性を確保。この機体でロールは邪道。そこそこの滑空性能がお手軽に楽しめます。 胴体下面が、プラスチックのスキッドだけでしたので、40φのタイヤを追加しました。ただ2度目の飛行で、スタート~1分後に、約50メートルの高度で上昇中に機種部から唸り音~powerを少し絞ったのですが、モーター部分が、なぜかぶっちぎれてホールディングペラごと、すっ飛んでしまいました。キャノピー部も↑半分はひらひらと・・・・。河川敷での飛行なのでモーターの回収は諦めました。機体は電池とわずかのバラスト重量で、ややピッチング飛行しながら場内に無事着陸、回収できましたが・・・モーターとペラは部品供給があるのかな?!もう少し頑丈なモーターマウントだと良いのに・・・・。残念だぁ!!

    機体の大きさと頑丈なところは満足頂けると思います。ただエルロンが装備されていないため風が強いとラダーだけのコントロールでは若干不安定です。 エルロンを自作で装備してフライトしたのですが上反角の効果もあり重量の割に滑空性能は抜群でした。 オリジナルのモーターでは若干パワー不足を感じるため4S用のモーターに替えれば性能を楽しめます。 前期したように重量があるためアクロには向きません。エルロンを装備しても上反角効果が強くロールまでもっていけません。ループから背面はできますがリカバリーに気をつけないとダイブ時にフラッターを起こし空中分解の危険があります。 胴体内のスペースには十分な余裕がありいろいろな機器を装備できオリジナリティーをたのしめます。 滑空性能は抜群なので後続時間も満足頂けるとおもいます。空中散歩にはいい機体です。
