Vista Grande EP from Tower Hobbies


If you’ve flown 2-meter sailplanes and want to try a larger EP model, the Vista Grande has many advantages. With a 2.50m span wing it handles well in wind, responds gently to control input, and improves visibility. Bold stripes on the wing bottom also help you follow orientation. Electric power eliminates the need for a hi-start, tow plane, or large launch area. You can climb to soaring altitude quickly, coast on the thermals, come down, and do it all again — without recharging.


  • All-wood airframe with expertly applied film covering
  • Brushless motor, ESC, and folding propeller included
  • 3-piece, bolt-on wing for convenient transportation and storage
  • Factory-hinged rudder and elevator to shorten assembly time
  • Center wing section spoiler to reduce speed quickly
  • Large hatch/removable canopy for easy LiPo changes
