Default Multiplex Easyglider 4

Looking for places to buy the Easyglider. The ONLY website I can find is the
Weekender Warehouse which wants $199 for the plane plus $25 shipping to Tucson. Anyone know of any other U.S. outlets for Multiplex models? Thanks. Gary

I've got one. Nice flying glider overall. Responds to lift well. A bit under powered on 3s in the RTF version.

Take care and thanks for posting at WattFlyer!!

Don

Thanks Don. Glad to hear it flies well.

Can you describe under powered?

Have you put a wattmeter on it to see how much margin there is on the ESC if you change the prop to improve climb?

I have two criteria for climb rate.

For fun flying, if it will maintain a 45 degree climb angle, that is good enough for me.

For ALES I need to be able to hit 200 meters in 30 seconds or less.

For example, a stock Radian meets the first. Change the prop to an 8X10 and it will meet the second and the ESC has enough headroom that you can do that without changing the ESC.
