There's about 201398102 videos on various "rc royalty" channels at the moment about these gliders ... to be honest I think they look a bit shit and don't understand the attraction aside from the cheap cost.

But then you've got to spend cash on carbon strip to stiffen then up, servos for the control surfaces, you've got to spend time modifying the wings for ailerons etc, buying a motor etc. And even shaving the back of the wings so that they taper properly because they're 1cm thick at the back.

Or, you could drop ~£45 on an AXN and get it all done for you with a proven platform that a) flies great b) comes with everything you need already done.

What changed your mind then Steve?

I had a ten pound note in my pocket, some spare electric bits sitting doing nothing and there weren't any AXNs available.
