  • Adagio 280 BNF Basic

    The E-flite® Adagio™ 280 motor glider is the park-size solution for pilots who want a great soaring experience and the versatility of a sport airplane. Its sleek, high-aspect ratio wing and flowing fuselage offer the ability to slip cleanly through the air and connect with thermal activity. When the air doesn’t deliver the lift you want, just add throttle and the high-torque outrunner motor whips the folding prop to life. Enjoy zooming performance that will take you to the prevailing winds, or perform basic aerobatics with grace and precision. With working flaps at your command, it’s possible to improve lift for takeoff or create drag to pin-point land with ease. Best of all, this exciting park-size motor glider features advanced AS3X® (Artificial Stabilization - 3-aXis) technology that works behind the scenes to smooth out the effects of forces like P-factor, turbulence and torque. Instead of a park flyer, you’ll feel like you’re at the controls of an expertly tuned, giant-scale model that flies like it’s on rails. You can have this Bind-N-Fly® Basic model flying in the time it takes to charge your battery and bind its receiver to your 5+ channel DSM2®/DSMX® aircraft transmitter.

    Convenient Design
    The 280-size design means that you can soar at smaller fields. Its two-piece wing allows for easy transport because the model breaks down into a small package. And because it’s a motor-glider, there’s no need for a Hi-start or a tow line.

    Innovative Technology
    Advanced AS3X® technology built into the pre-installed Spektrum™ AR6335 receiver has been programmed to help stabilize the airplane in turbulence. The result is the kind of control feel and performance you’d expect from a motor-glider many times larger.

    Five Channel Control
    Traditional four-channel maneuverability plus working flaps delivers more precise glide path control and allows for landing in a smaller area. The E-flite® 3.5-gram servos installed feature digital precision and amazing authority.

    Aerobatic Maneuverability
    The airframe design is optimized for high-lift and aerobatic capability. With the powerful ailerons, effective rudder and potent outrunner motor, the Adagio™ 280 motor glider feels right at home doing graceful aerobatics or searching for thermals.

    Adagio Glider






    I have had this plane for some time now and could not seem to get the plane to fly right at all. The last flight totaled it so it's done now. I am an experienced pilot with 9 planes I fly regularly. I may have gotten a lemon but I would not recommend this pane to anyone. If you have the same control problems I had then it isn't worth the headache and expense. I have the initial cost into it along with wing tubes and servos replaced. I love to fly and I know crashing is sometimes part of the sport but I have no confidence in this plane. I think E-Flite planes are generally good planes and might look into a different model than this one. I liked it because it was small and I could fly it at a park by my house and it didn't require a lot of room. Now it's in a heap in my basement. I have bought four batteries for this plane so I hope I can find a replacement that takes the same battery.
