Easyglider I'd say...
You can take the motorised one... The best of both world...  :D  :wink:

Thanks.
I wanted something different than a easyglider. Despite i like it too.
I have the younger brother the EZstar.

I've been with foam planes for quite some time, back in PT i started building my first planes in balsa. But i haven't finish any.
Probably the EZglider is best as it is stronger, but after seeing those great looking gliders in CF and Balsa... i start thinking i should get one.

That's the spirit !
Getting drunk to forget !  :mrgreen:

Fernando, you are looking for a wooden glider (to build or artf) or a fiber glass ship ?
Scale, fun ?

Fred, i prefer the fun factor.
Has i don't have all the tools with me if it was more artf it would be best, but to build is cool too.
Have in mind it cant be nothing too good or in the end the plane will be better than the pilot. ;)

Thanks Chris.

Not too big.
The ones you posted i think have a reasonable size, i was looking at the Daisy the aileron version. It seems ok.

IceWind, I have the Daisy (electric version), but no ailerons :( . It is my first model.

It flies well but with the standard nimh battery (8 cell) it climbs slowly, 15 mins flight time with the motor on, hence i have just installed a brushless motor/lipo battery, hope to get a chance to fly it soon. :D

If you choose this get the aileron wing (However I think Greens are not going to stock the spare wings/parts anymore, check this out with them). It can withstand bad landings too. :oops:

I like the look of the easy glider for my next model, first with ailerons!
Hope this helps.

error404 thanks for the info. The only one i have now is a wing i like it, but i wanted a plane. I miss flying that.
Being strong against bad landings is always  good thing, at least for me! ;)

Fred, that is great. I don't know it, but if you think i can fly it! :)
And no matter what model it will be it'll sure need some help I've too used to flying things with motor. For me this world of the gliders is on a different level.

Yeah, you should be able to fly this thing without any problems !
And flying without an engine, is more challenging !  :D  :wink:  :P  :P  (who said interresting ? :mrgreen:  :mrgreen: )
