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
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
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.
Easy to transport 3 piece wing assembles/disassembles in minutes at the field
Removable horizontal stabilizer allows fuselage to pack flat for transport

I have never built a plane from scratch but decided now is the time. I was careful to take my time, reading at least 3 steps ahead and prefitting the pieces before securing. The manual and included build sheets leave nothing to the imagination. No...

I just flew the Helium MG-3 for the first time today, and it was a great success. It was my first build, although I do have a lot of woodworking experience. The kit went together perfectly and the instructions were excellent throughout. It was a r...
