Default Snipp sport F5B

I was looking to get into electric powered gliders when I discovered the hotliner style airframe.

I wanted a full fiberglass wing. And had been looking at the whistler but saw bad reviews.

So I tried to find some info on sub 300$ planes that met my criteria.

It seems hobby lobby sold the tiger. Which I'm a few years late on. And couldn't find any for sale anywhere online.

And really I've only found two sites that carry that style airframe. Nesail and icarus. I called Icarus and they're out of the snipp until september. I ordered the snipp from nesail and tried calling them to make sure it was in stock with no luck getting through. Hopefully it is and they send it.

What is a budget setup for the snipp. I cant see myself spending 300 on a motor.

Thanks. I'll type more when I'm not using my phone.

Yeah, and they won't because we are so far behind Europe in that area. "Electric" high performance airframes seem to be catching on especially over on the Left Coast. Jump over to "RC Groups" forums and click on the "High Performance" section. There are several build threads on that forum about the "Snipp" which might give you a good setup for reasonable money. I fly 140mph electric pylon planes and none of my motors cost over $60 bucks!

Check here http://www.soaringusa.com/cart/cart.php Bob from SUSA travels abroad to shop for great planes of all sorts. Hand picks alot of them from Europe.
These guys have the Snipp and some other budget pylons http://www.espritmodel.com/index.asp
