There's no other plane like the Syncro. Purchase one model, get two ways to fly it: as a 55.5” span glider or 31.5” span sport plane. Install your brushless motor in the high-performance ducted fan power pod and enjoy a wide flight envelope — from long, leisurely soaring to jet-like aerobatics!
The Syncro assembles quickly — the parts count is low and all hardware is included. Its Aerocell™ foam construction provides a lightweight, durable airframe that's easily repairable using regular CA glues.
A foam pod houses the high-performance ducted fan unit. It attaches to the fuselage with magnets and an easy-to-install bolt. A brushless motor is required.
The Syncro's versatility extends to takeoff and landing options. For ROG (Rise Off Ground) takeoffs, simply plug in the supplied landing gear. Leave off the gear to hand-launch and enjoy smooth grass landings.
A magnetically secured hatch allows quick access to the generously sized battery compartment without removing the wing.
Change from glider to sport flight whenever the mood strikes — the Syncro's wings can be exchanged quickly right at the flying site. The ducted fan pod is held on by powerful magnets, and removes easily from one wing for attaching to the other.
This is the electric powered, radio controlled, almost ready to fly Syncro EDF Glider from ElectriFly. For modelers 14 years of age and older.
