The Albatros 2.4S/E is one of the most beautiful combinations of classic design and modern technology. The nostalgic shape is perfectly blended with modern building techniques to create an electric sailplane that performs as well as it looks. The white gel-coated fiberglass fuselage combined with high-tech CF main spare/leading edge tube wing and carbon/balsa built up tail parts come together to make the Albatros a strong and light model. Do not be fooled by the its retro looks. This model was designed and built to be a 21st century favorite. With its flap equipped, 2 piece wing and full flying elevator the Albatros is one of the most impressive models that we have seen in quite some time. Each part is carefully handcrafted with meticulous attention to every detail. As soon as you open the box, you will find the Top Model build quality that we have come to expect.

Virtually perfect, extremely elegant combination of classic design and modern technology.

Kit Orcutt (Pompano Beach, FL) 9/3/2013 11:09 AM
Hello, I bought this plane and I wasn't sure if I was going to like it because I am an experienced RC pilot and wasn't sure about the built-up wing, but as I was building it I started to like it more and more, and after flying it I am hooked! It flies great, thermals well and flying weight came out good too. I would recommend this plane to anyone with some building experience. Very fun to fly. I used the MVVS 25 3.5/1200 motor, the Jeti Advance 40 Pro SB Brushless ESC controller, and the Thunder Power 2700mAh Pro Force G8 70C Li-Poly Battery Pack for my power setup and I use Futaba radio gear 8FG with 7 channel receiver and HiTec servos: Hitec HS-5245MG's for the elevator and rudder, and Hitec HS-5085MG's for the flaps, and Hitec HS-A5076HB Digital Slim Karbonite Gear Servo's for the ailerons. Everything else is as called for in the instructions except for the Scorpion Receiver Power Backup Guard in case of battery cut-off of motor battery. The only thing I would like to see is more colors to choose from. Happy Flying :) Sincerely, Kit O.
