AUW is 23kg
Test flight will be on a slope in Pavnar near Lonavala without turbine power !

I believe this is the first biggest glider post on the forum. Extremely impressive.

What kind of servos have you put on her ? Any pics of the build would be great.

If possible, maybe we can join you in lonavla for the maiden. Transporting her to lonavla is also a challenge.

Hi Atul,
Servos are all Hitec digitals.
Batteries are 2300 A123s running thru a power management syst UA9.
Every servo gets a isolated power supply - only signal thru the receiver.
Yep this is by far the most complex airplane I've built, most turbine jets that I fly are far simpler in set up.
On a different note , I believe I have found a world class location for slope soaring and I encourage glider pilots to try this form of flying.
It is absolutely amazin, most of the flying is at eye level or below you and flight times are limited by the pilots endurance or receiver battery capacity
typical flight times are upwards of 1 hr with two pilots sharing the Tx and a coffee break.

Hello Xantos,

Thanks for getting back. I would be glued to this thread. Would be great if you could upload some more pics Cheesy

Also, I love gliders but buying this kind of baby require a lot of mollah :d

Hi Xantos,
The slopes what you a are talking about near Lonavala is the same where some people do gliding also? i saw this when i was returning from lonavala last December. this place is immediate next to one tunnel on right side when coming from Lonavala. I will be the happiest person to join you at that place where you do your maiden. please give me your mob. no. will call you once i am free.

Atul I'l probably use a JR12X Radio.
Gliders dont necessarily have to be expensive , I have as much fun with Foamy Slopers , flying wings etc
Sandeep _ No the slopes are not even close to the expressway
Here's a link to see the flying site
