Vista from Tower Hobbies

Details

New to soaring? Have years of flight experience under your belt? Regardless of your skill level, the Vista BL is a superior electric sailplane. It's just as capable of slow-and-steady gliding as it is chasing thermals!
A factory-installed 1000kV brushless motor and LiPo-compatible 30A brushless ESC allow the Vista BL to aggressively climb to thermaling altitudes in a few seconds. The plane's low parts count helps keep assembly time down to a mere 2-3 hours. A factory-applied trim scheme helps the Vista BL stand out in the air – and on the flying field. Remove the easy-access battery hatch, and you'll find there's plenty of room inside the fuselage for a 3S LiPo battery. Built-up, lightweight balsa and ply construction makes the Vista BL easy to repair. A 12x6.5" folding propeller and dynamic decals round out everything this spectacular glider has to offer.

Features:

  • Aggressive climbs to thermal-catching altitudes in seconds.
  • Powerful 1000kV brushless motor and LiPo-compatible 30A brushless ESC provide a wide flight envelope.
  • Lightweight, built-up balsa/ply construction.
  • Factory-covered in colorful, quality heat-shrink film.
  • Prehinged tail surfaces and factory-installed control horns.
  • Spacious interior for installation of micro or standard servos.
  • Convenient, quick-access battery hatch.
  • 12x6.5" folding propeller.
  • Low parts count for fast, trouble-free assembly.
