Blade2 - Electric Conversion Glider
The 2 metre Blade 2 is designed to be either slope soarer or electric. It has a 2 piece wing for easier transportation and a 1 piece V tail.
The fuselage has a removable canopy and is larger enough to take a decent size outrunner motor and 3S to 4S liPo pack.
My own Blade 2 has a Hacker B40-6-L 4.4/1 geared motor with a 70 amp ESC.
An Alternative set up is:
1 x folding cam PROP 12.5/6.5
The model is a delight to fly and handles very well with no bad vices. It can handle slow turns easily without dropping a wing.
The energy retention needs to be seen to be believed as it glides around the sky!
