Can you tell us a little more about what you want the plane to do?

Are you looking for a slope glider?

What piloting experience do you have right now? Price?

Thanks for your interest, my experience in flight is of a year with airplanes with explosion motor, at the present time i´m fliying with p-51 of airloisiers. I would like to buy a slope glider, but with the possibility of an electrical motor to be able to leave situations it jeopardize. I have a battery of 7 segments, four mini servo ones. The price could go up to around the 200 €

When looking at a slope soarer, there are literally hundreds of choices. Due to your experience, a built up wooden model would work I imagine. These are available in full kit form, or in pre-built format where you just need to do some minor assembling.

As for size - they range from something less than one Kilo all the way up to 2-3kilo planes.

You mention you have a battery, but I am not sure what actual size it is - batteries are not too pricey though, and I would probably recommend getting a new one to match whichever plane you choose.

It seems you are in Europe, and I am not familiar with the hobby shops over there, but here are some choices in the USA to use as a reference:

To Jlolabarr, in regard to a powered sailplane that can also fly slope, here's a couple of sites you might check for reference http://nesail.com and www.hobby-lobby.com (http://www.hobby-lobby.com). If you are in Europe, the price of shipping from the USA might be too high, but I checked a recent copy of the "Quiet & Electric Flight International" magazine published in Great Britain and some of the models advertised there are the same as NES and H.L. sell. Can you easily mail order from Great Britain? If so, check out www.puffinmodels.com (http://www.puffinmodels.com) They carry a good line of gliders, one in particular that I've seen fly is the "Filip", it comes with or without flaps,spoilers, ailerons and a sport version. This is a built-up (balsa) wing and tail-already covered and a fiberglass fuselage. It does not come with a motor. Price for the "Sport" is (Euros, my keyboard doesn't have the symbol) 114.99. It is a good thermal glider and while it's not as strong as an all-composite Hotliner, it can fly in high winds well. If you get into true Slopers, many are composite and the price will be higher. If you have any other questions feel free to PM me or post here. Good Luck! Ron

Thanks to all for your answers, I have to say that a friend mine has a store and tapeworm a glider 3D that did not sell years ago, reason why he left me the plane for a really low price (75€). So I bought it. (Acceptance insults, jejejejejeje).

The model is a "SlopeMaster 3D made by protech" http://www.protech.be/ (http://www.protech.be/) .

I understand that it is not the best model to begin in slope. But as it was not too expensive I decided to buy it. My idea is to take it to the slope and see if some expert can fly it, and see if he can teach me to flight it.

Meanwhile continuous with the search of a glider that fulfils the characteristics that already I have commented to you.

On the other hand:
· Somebody has seen fly this model?.
· It is possible to configure the plane for beginners?
· Do you have any suggestions for the best configuration?
· I am an idiot?
· …

At the moment I have begun with the construction of the KIT. The airplane has been made in China, reason why the assembly of the pieces is really bad.

Personally I am really disappointment with the finished one of the airplane. I hope that when finishes reinforcing it and preparing it for the flight it takes a better sensation to me.

Note: I am from the Basc Country (Bilbao City) (in the North of Spain), my purchase in hot is typical around here.

Warm greetings,
