  • StevensAero - Helium MG2, RES Motor Glider Kit

    The HeliumMG represents our efforts to modernize the vintage motorized glider platform that gave many of us our first taste of powered RC flight. The Helium 2MG is a piece o'cake to build thanks to thoughtful design and interlocking precision laser cut components. This stable, predictable, featherweight (22-26oz Flying weight) glider sports a cavernous fuselage which makes it ideal for outfitting with various photography and FPV gear. Portability and flying site adaptability was a high priority when designing the HeliumMG as such we've designed the HeliumMG with 3 peice wing and given the fuselage a removable horizontal stabilizer to allow it to pack down flat making it an ideal travel plane. Shock mounted landing gear protect the underbelly of the HeliumMG from the ever-present rocks and scrub found at un-improved fields.

    Product Features:
    • 2 Meter span Rudder, Elevator, Throttle control motor glider with optional Spoiler
    • Easy access to cavernous equipment and battery compartments
    • Simple interlocking precision laser cut components and rapid assembly with CA glue
    • Beginner friendly modified S7055 airfoil keeps speed in check without sacrificing penetration
    • Ultralight flying weight assures success even on light lift days.
    • Carbon fiber reinforced spar and flat center section build strong and allow the Helium to carry FPV and aerial photography payloads with complete confidence.
    • Optional barn door spoiler allows for operation from small fields with confidence.
    • Optional rubber-band on wing (cannot be used with spoiler) allows the Helium to function as a primary motor glider trainer.
