Radian XL 2.6m...


Big and easy to flyEfficient 2.6-meter polyhedral wing with fully-proportional spoilersFull-Flying horizontal stabilizer for excellent pitch controlAssembles and dismantles in minutesEasy to transportation and storePowerful, efficient brushless motorConstructed of durable, lightweight Z-Foam™ materialThe precision and stability of AS3X® innovation


Ask any of the countless pilots who have flown one. Radian® motor gliders are the sailplanes of option if you desire a quick and easy way to experience the thrill of RC skyrocketing or unwind with a quick flight. They are so easy to fly, even pilots with no skyrocketing experience have been able to master the art of riding thermals after just a couple of flights.
The giant E-Flite® Radian XL 2.6m motor glider adds a whole new measurement of skyrocketing excitement to the Radian line while staying real to its heritage with simple elevator/rudder/throttle/spoiler controls.
Efficient 2.6-Meter Polyhedral Wing with Spoilers
The wing, which covers just over 8 1/2 feet (102 inches) tip to tip, has been created to offer excellent thermal-grabbing abilities while minimizing drag for optimum endurance. When it's time to go back to Earth, its fully-proportional, retractable spoilers will enable you to specifically manage 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 much better pitch control. Unlike a fixed-position horizontal stabilizer with a hinged elevator, the whole stabilizer turns up or down to offer extra aerodynamic force. The result is a big glider with excellent pitch reaction at every speed.
Easy Assembly, Transportation and Storage
Putting this enormous flying maker together couldn't be much easier. All you need is a couple of minutes and a Phillips-head screwdriver. The bolt-together wing can be found in 3 pieces-a center area with spoilers and two external areas. The 2-piece, full-flying elevator slides into the tail and bolts together.
Brushless Power and Lightweight Building with Z-Foam Product
This combination provides the design an excellent power-to-weight ratio that equates into exhilarating launch efficiency. The lightweight airframe likewise makes the motor incredibly efficient at altitude so you can invest more time hunting for thermals.
The Accuracy and Stability of AS3X® Innovation
The AS3X innovation developed into the Spektrum™ AR636A receiver helps provide the design an incredibly stable, locked-in feel in the air. This smooth, precise reaction makes for a lot more enjoyable flying experience, specifically on windy days.
