Radian XL 2.6m...


Big and easy to flyEfficient 2.6-meter polyhedral wing with fully-proportional spoilersFull-Flying horizontal stabilizer for exceptional pitch controlAssembles and takes apart in minutesEasy to transportation and storePowerful, effective brushless motorConstructed of resilient, light-weight Z-Foam™ materialThe accuracy and stability of AS3X® technology


Ask any of the countless pilots who have actually flown one. Radian® motor gliders are the sailplanes of option if you desire a fast and easy method to experience the thrill of RC soaring or relax with a fast flight. They are so easy to fly, even pilots with no soaring experience have actually had the ability to master the art of riding thermals after simply a few flights.
The giant E-Flite® Radian XL 2.6m motor glider includes a whole new dimension of soaring enjoyment to the Radian line while staying real to its heritage with easy elevator/rudder/throttle/spoiler controls.
Efficient 2.6-Meter Polyhedral Wing with Spoilers
The wing, which spans simply over 8 1/2 feet (102 inches) tip to tip, has actually been created to provide exceptional thermal-grabbing abilities while minimizing drag for maximum endurance. When it's time to return to Earth, its fully-proportional, retractable spoilers will permit you to exactly handle your descent and use less location to land.
Full-Flying Horizontal Stabilizer
The E-flite team created 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 whole stabilizer turns up or down to provide additional aerodynamic force. The outcome is a huge glider with exceptional pitch response at every speed.
Easy Assembly, Transport and Storage
Putting this huge flying maker together could not be easier. All you require is a few minutes and a Phillips-head screwdriver. The bolt-together wing can be found in 3 pieces-a center area with spoilers and two outer areas. The 2-piece, full-flying elevator slides into the tail and bolts together.
Brushless Power and Lightweight Construction with Z-Foam Material
This mix provides the model a remarkable power-to-weight ratio that translates into exciting launch performance. The light-weight airframe also makes the motor incredibly effective at altitude so you can spend more time searching for thermals.
The Accuracy and Stability of AS3X® Innovation
The AS3X technology built into the Spektrum™ AR636A receiver assists offer the model an exceptionally stable, locked-in feel in the air. This smooth, exact response makes for much more pleasurable flying experience, specifically on windy days.
