Eek.... love the model but the covering finish is not to my taste, puts me in mind of hazard tape.

but that's what makes our hobby so diverse, each to his own yes

Such a shame Dave sad

i have to to say I thought the fuel tank was a little big?

maybe installing a smaller one would help ease up on the weight?

im sure you'll have it up again very soon yes

I tried to suppprt uk model shops recently, but none of them had a suitable model actually in stock.

so I gave Hobbyking the custom instead, didn't want to but the delivery from the uk warehouse was 3 days., much quicker than waiting on back order from a uk model shop unfortunately.

its the way things are going it seems...... any chance we can get the thread back on track?

I love the look of that AT10! Nice price too yes

i recently bought a Turnigy i6 absolute bargain for a computer tx.

im going to be using a 2200 mAh 11.1v lipo so from what you've said it should be ok.

So This one would take longer to charge the battery as it uses just the balance lead correct?

19/02/2019 22:03:57

Makes sense, thanks peter 🙂

19/02/2019 20:58:20

That's brilliant stuff thanks guys 👍

One more thing, I used to have a Radian and a simple mini charger, to charge I just connected the balance lead and it did its thing.

This time I want a charger like the bmax so I can use store charge, looking at reviews people are not just plugging in the balance lead but also popping in the banana connectors and plugging in the battery output connector?

does that mean it provides the charge via the banana input lead? Or does this just provide connection to the charger for battery info?

Hope that makes sense....

Hi everyone, after a bit of advice on a suitable battery for my new Phoenix V2 powered glider.

Site says recommended battery is between 1500 to 1800 mah, I want to use a 2200 for a bit more duration would a higher mah give me that?

Secondly what would be the best C rating to use? I see a chap on YouTube using a 60C, does it need to be that high? Would a 30 or 35 be just as good?

3S 11.1V 1500~1800mAh LiPoly Battery
Wingspan: 2000mm (78.74inch)
Length: 1160mm
Flying Weight: 980g
Motor: Brushless 28 Size 1050Kv
ESC Included: 30A

Thanks for any help.

Many thanks for the feedback yes

Will look at Airtek Percy thanks smiley

I'm looking at RTF as I'm returning to the hobby and just want something I can walk over to the field with and enjoy, I've had enough of building, I've built and restored loads of models since my teens (in my forties now) blush and I just want a foamie RTF for some summer relaxation.

Thanks again all.

hi all,

I'm looking at buying an RTF glider, nothing fancy but reasonably priced and from a uk shop.

Hobbyking etc don't interest me I'd rather support a uk shop but I'm getting frustrated!

I've looked at many shops online and one thing is consistent between all of them... they just don't have the models in stock!

How can we support them if we can't make a simple purchase without waiting for it to be ordered to the shop then to me etc....


Thread: FMS 1280mm (50.4") Easy Trainer vs FMS 1500mm (59.1") Moa RTF

Last glider I had was the fantastic radian, it's been a few years since I've flown.

I'm looking for a new model, I've searched the FMS Easy Trainer and the FMS Mini Moa.

I've been looking at these as they are cheap in the RTF format, I've had the FMS LET 13 which as a glider was a let down.

Very manoeuvrable but not a glider in my opinion when compared to the Radian.

I'm coming back to gliding but have a very low budget, so after looking at many videos and reviews I'm just not sure which one suits my budget and requirements.

I loved my Radian, was a great balance between fun and endurance.

I don't have the budget for what I really want (Radian XL) so I've been looking at the Easy Trainer vs the FMS Minimoa.

Sorry for the rambling.... my question is, which will give me better gliding performance?

Obviously the Moa right? But the wing on the Easy Trainer looks better?

This is my reason for posting.

Any advice much appreciated.
