The Ranger 1600 from Hobbyking is another plane from the milk bottle stables, ie; plastic fuselage and very similar stabiliser and tail fin to the Phoenix glider range. The big difference though is the plug in wings so no screw driver required. The Ranger is designed for much easier hand launching and virtually a mid-wing type plane. This model is very similar to the Bixler series except it now has a virtually indestructable fuselage! The front nose has a flat area with a small aperture for a camera if using it as FPV. It is quite capable of powered flight or used for slope soaring, your choice. The plane comes with pre-wired servo connections, 30 amp ESC and a unbranded 2212 1400Kv brushless outrunner and designed to run on 3 cell Lipos in the 1600 to 2200 maH range. These batteries will balance the model perfectly.
