Arrows Hobby, after the success of trainers, warbirds, and jets, now brings you gliders. This first glider, the 2000mm SZD-54, has been thoroughly tested, and has been brought to you in it's best form.
To achieve the best dihedral, the SZD-54 was designed with a specialized two-piece CNC threaded metal spar joiner- allowing the aircraft to maintain its wing geometry during demanding flight routines. Additionally, the pre-embedded carbon fiber spars in the fuselage and main wings ensure overall rigidity in high-G maneuvers.
A high-quality 30A ESC paired with a 3136-KV1000 motor provides ample power with a 3S pack (1300mAh-2200mAh) to perform most aerobatic maneuvers. Positive and negative loops, stall turns, point rolls, and inverted flight can be easily and excellently performed.
The wing and horizontal stabilizers are designed with a snap-fit structure, which can be installed by pressing and detached by pulling. No screws or glue necessary! This superb design makes transportation and storage easy. With the majority of the aircraft pre-assembled and no need for screws or glue, this aircraft can be built in as little as 3 minutes!
Don't settle for any less than the best - Arrows Hobby 2000mm SZD-54.
3 minute build. Out to the field the next day. Really good foam. Very similar to the Eflite Conscendo. Fun to fly, you can go fast, you can soar, loop and roll. Great plane to start the day with, or if you’re in the mood and just chill out for 15 minutes + and glide.
Wow. Great flier , top quality from the hinges to final model completed. Wow. Get one you will love it.
Nice powered glider,Flies great and flaps really help to slow it down.
Had some original problems getting the wings onto the wing spars; the slot for the spars was not deep enough but with some rocking back and forth and a lot of force finally got them to fully install. Getting better all the time.
The plane is clearly solid should be able to take a beating. It looks great but in the air, its all white color can make it hard to keep orientation. Painted the upper wing tips fluorescent orange. Painted a wide dark blue strip on the lower wing about 2/3rds the way out. Makes a huge difference.
Added a throttle/down elevator mix so the plane did not pitch up so much with throttle. I am still getting used to this kind of flying but am really enjoying it. Will fly it a lot. I
I am still figuring out how much flap to use and if I need some flap/elevator mix.
Would rate the quality 5 stars except for the problems I had with the wing spars.
I had some original problems getting the wings to fully install on the fuse as the spars did not want to go all the way in. Eventually was able to work them in and now it is easy get the wing off and on. It is my first plane of this kind so it took some getting used to but it has always launched well. It is tough. It is well built. It is predictable.
I typically use a 3S 1800 mAh battery. I can keep it up for at least a half hour with the battery. Tried a 1300 but it seemed to fly better with the 1800.
I have learned it turns best using the rudder but keep power on in turns or make gentle turns to avoid losing speed. I use a throttle to Elevator mix once launched as under power the plane wants to pitch way up. I also mix in a little down elevator when using the flaps. The flaps slow it down enough to make good landing and not float too far away.
The model is almost all white which can create orientation problems, especially in overcast conditions so I painted the top wing tips a fluorescent orange and put a broad dark blue stripe on the bottom wing about 2/3rds of the way out. Makes a huge difference.
A nice plane to fly around the sky and not worry about it getting away from me.
This is a very well built plane. Easy to assemble and get into the air. Easy to fly. It is kinda caught in the middle between a glider and a warm-liner. Really does neither great. Not much aileron authority, has enough power for loops, and seems a bit heavily loaded for catching thermals. So for me it was not a fun plane. Though it would likely be a fun plane for someone else getting into power gliders.
