Construction / tuning:

After my first Easy Star I took the decision to buy and build this plane.
Easy assembly - you can not make anything wrong.

Some changes after a strange incident (read below) and conversion
to glider only - with an all up weight of 725 gms!

Flight Experience:

The stock motor with the gear and the folding prop is just managing to
lift the plane to hight. Some wind is already an obstacle. After the first
experiences with the 2 cell lipo (which is light) I hooked up an 8 cell
NIMH battery - that worked already better from the power (now 9,4 Volt)
however there was something wrong and the motor became so hot
that it melted through the front of the elapor during the first flight. I
managed to land, but had to reconstruct the front (with a motor holder
of the Easyglider pro). Now I converted the Easyglider electric to a
slope glider, however I did not check out the performance - no proper
hills around here!

Update: June 2010

After almost two years in service and recently just as a hang glider I
retired this plane. The wings however were used in the EasyStar no. 2
to convert that one to a video camera carrier.

Update: April 2012:

Now it was time to order a 2nd plane and prepare a proper set of
photos for my website. I also used the opportunity to purchase a
tuning motor set, as the original was rather weak.
