i love this combination, a sailplane that is also a glider and a hotliner at the same time. With the right setup, you can sail the sky with or without wind, you can rip the sky like a hotliner or simply glide at will. This is a 69″ wingspan glider with some serious flying characteristics. The specs suggests to use a 3S lipo on a 1800kv outrunner motor, but i would use the MicroDAN 2505-2900 Kv outrunner on a 4S 1000mAh lipo and a 45Amp ESC, keeping the plane super light and at the same time powerful. a 5×5 prop will do or for more thrust, you can use an APC 6 x 4, 20200 RPM, 9.98V, 30A, 25oz Thrust.
Here are some pictures of the Samurai ARF RC Sailplane Glider Hotliner

My first impression of this super slick Hotliner by hobby people is “WOW” from the slick composite black white and red design to its affordable price tag.
At only $120, you can break speeds up to 170mph with this bad boy. Although the setup states to use a 3S lipo, i would most def stick a 4S on a mega 2 turn inrunner motor on a gear box spinning a 9x or a 10x prop. You will need 3 metal gear servos that can pull at least Torque @ 4.8V: 4.6 kg/cm. Enough talk,here are some pics of the BH Sonic Hotliner
