ParkZone continues to grab new fans with excellent new airplanes. Now they have introduced one that is a little different—the Radian powered sailplane. This will be a high performance sailplane that can be flown just about anywhere. Powered by the same 480 brushless motor used in the ParkZone Trojan and Corsair, the Radian will be able to launch itself to sufficient altitudes for long, quiet soaring flights. A folding prop will provide low drag after the motor is shut off.
The Radian will be available as both a Ready-To-Fly and as a Plug-N-Play®. The RTF includes the DX5e radio—a full range system utilizing the DSM2 2.4GHz protocol. The buyer will be able to use the radio for just about any type model as well as the Radian. The PNP Radian is for the modeler who already owns a transmitter, receiver, 1300 mAh li-po battery and Li-Po charger.
