UPSTAR Sailplane by Hobbico / Brushless by Radical RC

Nice ARF Sailplane. This kit originally came with a cheezy brushed 540 can motor. I designed a brushless sytem for it. This setup was purchased back shortly after sale to a more senior citizen whom I think may have decided it would too hard for him to see models at a distance. It's a nice package, nice aircraft, I know you'll love it. It just needs bolted together and powered up.
