June Indoor Still Improves with New Times

The original Radian from ParkZone was always a popular RC glider, proving to be easy-to-fly and offering great characteristics in the air. In this spirit of this tradition, E-Flite announced earlier this year the introduction of an Ultra Micro Radian and today we are pleased to annouce that this new model has arrived at Modelflight. The Ultra Micro Radian is going to be lots of fun. It comes equipped with AS3X Technology, so you know that your flights are going to be smooth and stable. With its 3-channel control, this minature Radian will offer easy flying and soaring characteristics. This ParkZone glider is constructed from light foam, giving you an easy to handle weight. The wing also comes with carbon fibre support.
To maximise the gliding efficiency, E-Flite
