Hi Guys,

Just an observation by me,

The Black body and wings are heavier and stronger / less flexible than the others.

So in my opinion make up a Black Glider.

Now here's a thing. Got two of these, intending to convert to rc. However, the grandchildren have had such fun using them as intended (chuck gliders) that I have given them both gliders to keep. Bought a HK Super Kinetic for myself instead!

You could try Laser Engines. I use an M10 sleeve nut from them, but APC `E` are a far better bet than using i/c props.

For some reason I grabbed a handfull for my kids and then I see this. So are these a beginner friendly option? Or should I get a starter kit with an engine? Of the shown conversions which are the easier to fly?
Best regards

Lidl kit is a bit like the Mayfly - as any trout stream fly fisherman will tell you it appears for a fortnight and is then gone - never to be seen again..

I have often told friends about Lidl bargains, they go and find no stock and if you ask the staff if any more are coming in you get a shrug of the shoulders.

Lidl must spend a fortune getting heavy items like compressors, bandsaws, generators, pillar drills etc branded so why only have them on offer for a month maximum? Why don't they have a back order system?

By limiting the supply it achieves two things for Lidl. Firstly, you will buy when you see them, so you don't miss out; secondly, you will keep going in to see the latest offers and probably buy some of their standard stuff whilst you are there, and before you know it you are a regular customer. This approach also means they can have a much smaller shop than if they had all the items all the time. There are only so many gliders or compressors that they will sell in a year, so if Lidl can shift them all in a fortnight, they can then use the space for something else. Maybe we would still have plenty of model shops if they did aircraft one week, trains the next and cars after that?
