E-flite’s Ascent offers the modeler an ARF (almost-ready-to-fly) electric park glider that is pre-built to a high level of craftsmanship. It is unique in that it comes with the electric motor and folding propeller installed, complete with preassembled wiring harness, saving a significant amount of construction time.
The pre-covered and trimmed Ascent is a high-quality speed 400-power park glider that can be flight ready in just a few evenings. The world of electric-powered park gliders is extremely challenging and rewarding. It is your skill and knowledge of the surrounding atmosphere, combined with the design capabilities of your model, that will result in your ability to defy the laws of gravity and produce flights of unbelievable distance and duration.
With the electric motor, you can climb 300–500 feet (thermal hunting altitude) several times, resulting in flight times of up to an hour or more as you soar from thermal to thermal. Included in the manual are sections on "Thermal Soaring" and "Flight Trimming for Performance and Conditions" to help you achieve the most enjoyment from your Ascent.
