Parkzone Radian Mods & Fine Tuning

Nothing beats a very well set up sailplane.

If you have been into our store and got one of these fantastic models from us or spoken to me about them, you will know all about the host of mods that can be done to the Radian.
I have just been pointed to a very well put together and extencive guide on these modifications that Paul (a very experenced and knowlegeable model engineer) from Radio Carbon Arts has put together.
Although this guide is really aimed at the 1st generation Radian alot of the suggestions are still relevant and can really improve the performance of your 2nd generation Radian for pure sailplane use, so check out the video below.

How you can easily tell if you have a 1st or 2nd generation Radian is if you model came "out of the box" with the thumb screw, EZ connector style elevator connector on the elevator, you have a 1st generation Radian. The 2nd Generation Radians have the plastic clevis on the elevator now.
The 2nd generation Radian has had the tail incidence/decalage and C/G points adjusted already and if you make the mods as recommended for the orginal model you will make it extreamly diffacult, if not impossible to fly. So best not make further adjustments unless you know what you are doing.

However all the other mods Paul talks about are very relevant and will make the Radian almost unbeatable in a contest, even against high end composite models!
