Blade XL 2.5m
SoaringUSA is the exclusive USA importers of the hot new Blade XL! We are very excited to offer this model to the US. The Blade XL has outstanding front side speed and performance.
The Blade XL features the same high performance airfoil and platform as the renowned Blade 2M, but is larger, stiffer, and mounts in two pieces for easy transportability. The V-tail is also 2 piece modular design, similar to the Pike WR. The v-tail surfaces are fixed, using conventional trailing edge control.
A generous nose is revealed when the nosecone is slipped off. Plenty of room for big NiMh packs and your choice of servos, including our favorite HS-5245 digitals from Hitec.
Also featured are pre-installed ballast tube!
Yes, there is a 1x12"shotgun loading tube holding 44oz. of ballast!!
We recommend using a 4 cell 1650 mAh NiMh or larger battery pack, HS-5245 servos for the tail group (or similar), HS-5125 flat wing digital servos for the ailerons, and servos no larger than HS-85MG's for the flaps. Our preference is the Polo digi 4 for the flaps, but HS-5125's work also.
Now Available: For extra stiffness, extra ding resistance (important on Southern California slopes!), and heightened DS performance, we recommend the all carbon Blade XL Extreme.
