This is s pretty decent and good size glider for the low price. Using mine in 2.6M version only and love the PVC fuselage. I'm still using the stock electronics but upped the prop to a 12x6 to get better climb out on 3S. Setup properly it handles and glides really well. It's more of a sport glider with its mostly flat wing. That said I've thermalled mine to well over 1,000ft and performed gentle pull-outs from high speed dives and it handles them great. The main wing has 2 spars with one full length from wingtip to wingtip. No doubt a laminated wing could handle even more high-speed fun. It could take a more powerful motor as well although cooling might become an issue for extended throttle runs.

There are a few quality issues but nothing a seasoned modeler can't easily correct. Certainly not the quality of the higher priced models but it's a lot of bang for the buck especially for a PNP that's now going for less than $110 shipped from some sellers.

Volantex R/C Phoenix Evolution PNP Brushless Glider Sailplane
This is the worst ARF I have ever built in my 50 years of modeling.
The instruction manual is very poor, the english translation is awfull.
Lots of leftover parts {screws & servo arms} with no explanation of
what goes where.
