Rapide™ Rx-R Brushless Performance Glider - for easy cruising — or cutting loose

The Rapide Rx-R sport glider excels at everyday soaring and extreme aerobatics. Carbon and fiberglass reinforcements make the airframe extremely rigid to handle high speeds. If you're an intermediate glider pilot who's ready to cut loose, the Rapide is right for you!
  • Soar with confidence
  • Fly fast maneuvers
  • Explore exciting aerobatics

Flying Stabilizer
Hand Launch at Field
Bold, bright colors in a distinctive trim scheme instantly set the Rapide apart from any other glider.   The full flying stabilizer reduces drag and improves aerodynamics compared to the hinged horizontal stabilizers found on most foam gliders.   With no bad habits and plenty of sport potential, the Rapide is an excellent next step for pilots who've mastered the basics of glider control.

Sport Aerobatic Attitudes

Crash-tough and feather-light, advanced AeroCell foam is durable enough to stand up to everyday abuse!
The rigid airframe withstands the stress of high speeds and extreme aerobatics. It's made of tough AeroCell foam reinforced with carbon and fiberglass.
