Parkzone have released the Conscendo Advanced RC Glider. Featuring a 1.5m wingspan, brushless motor and durable EPO foam construction this lightweight design electric glider is the perfect step up from the trainer airplane that is still easy to fly and delivers on fun.
This brand new ParkZone glider is capable of being enjoyed just about anywhere you can get time in the air. The Conscendo Advanced 1.5m sport glider has the lines and design to get you through the air in sports aerobatic fashion, or, in a mellow, energy efficient soaring flight. With no landing gear, the weight on this electric glider is kept down along with drag levels as you soar through the air. The large wing area that the Conscendo electric glider has at its disposal ensures lower touchdown speeds and high lift potential. The Conscendo Advance is easily assembled with a two piece wing design that goes together and comes apart quickly utilising a strong carbon fibre joiner tube. In order to give you a faster climb rate the upgraded 370-size brushless outrunner motor combined with a 30-amp ESC installed in the Conscendo gets you to altitude quickly so you can get into gliding once your propellers fold back and prolong your flight time using thermals and gliding technique. If power and aerobatic manoeuvering is your thing the Conscendo can also handle sport flying with an excellent flight envelope for a craft this size.
Good foam gliders are almost always constructed with EPO. The EPO foam allows designers to create strong, lightweight precision models that can be reinforced where it’s most needed. On the Conscendo Advance this would be the nose in case you deck it, or, the belly for the landings. The EPO foam is also easy to maintain and ensures your electric glider always looks its best in the air.
The propellers on this ParkZone glider will automatically fold when the ESC brake function kicks in and will ensure increased gliding performance and safer landings.
The 4-channel control on the Conscendo Advanced gives it the unique ability to perform advanced aerobatics like a smaller, sleeker sport model. Combine that with its aerodynamic design and this ParkZone glider is a more than capable soarer as well as the perfect step up aeroplane for the novice pilot.
The Conscendo Advanced comes equipped with the AS3X (Artificial Stabilization – 3-axis) receiver that provides an increased sense of precision and stability by smoothing out the effects of turbulence and wind.
If you are a novice pilot and want a bit of a safety net until you get a feel for the Conscendo, you can engage the SAFE Select technology that is built into the receiver.
With SAFE Select features enabled, you get:
Pitch and Bank Angle Limits
These limits prevent excessive dive or climb angles during takeoff and landing, and, also keep the aircraft from pitching or rolling upside down.
If you get into any trouble or just need some assistance when hand launching you need only release the sticks and this will instantly return the wings to a level position.
Easy Switch Assignment—No Programming Required
You can allocate a switch on your transmitter using a simple procedure in order to turn SAFE Select features on and off in just a few seconds.
If you’re a more experienced pilot and feel comfortable enough to fly your radio control glider without SAFE Select you need only to bind your receiver in a normal fashion and your AS3X receiver will function as normal.
This model glider also comes in a Plug-N-Play version.
