The E-flite® Mystique RES (Rudder/Elevator/Spoiler) 2.9 m ARF aircraft is a sailplane inspired by the popular full-house Mystique 2.9 m. It does however differ in that it's been specially modified to provide exquisite performance with only rudder, elevator and spoiler guidance controls.

Its large wingspan is built with just the right amount of polyhedral to provide gentle flight characteristics yet still have the authority to turn abruptly onto a thermal the instant it's sensed. The Selig S8032 airfoil used provides excellent handling over a wide speed range plus the all-wood open-wing construction keeps weight to a minimum so advantage can be taken of even the smallest amount of lift. Built-in spoilers offer the ability to dump lift without a gain in airspeed control can be exercised to escape a thermal and perform spot landings with greater precision.

The contour of the molded fibreglass fuselage is sleek yet provides ample room for its pushrods to run internally and still have room for a powerful LiPo motor battery. The Mystique RES 2.9m offers the option to build the model as a pure sailplane by including a slip on nose with the ARF, or build the Mystique RES 2.9m as an electric powered sailplane equipped with the recommended E-flite and Spektrum electronics (receiver, servos, battery, motor, ESC).

The options offer a sailplane that can be built with electric power, or one suitable for launching off a winch, Hi-start or even a slope. Either setup can be accomplished with just a simple 4-channel radio. As an electric model equipped with an E-flite Power 25 outrunner and 3S LiPo pack the Mystique demonstrates amazing climb performance as well as an ability to offer long flight times.

The overall size of this Mystique model will make a huge impression on any intermediate pilot, but despite this simplicity is the main intent. Whilst delivering versatility and performance, ease of completion is achieved thanks to the low parts count and minimal assembly required.

Needed To Complete

- 4+ channel full-range transmitter and receiver radio system
- (2) micro servos, (2) thin wing servos
