E-Medina (2M Almost Ready to Fly)
Many of us want to fly F5-RES competitions or have fun with a high-performance 2-meter electric glider for sport flying, but who really has time to spend two weeks' worth of evenings putting together a balsa kit nowadays? We get it. That's why we set out to do something about that!
The E-Medina is an almost ready-to-fly (ARF) F5-RES/F5L electric glider and comes with fully pre-built and covered surfaces so you can enjoy flying the model shortly after receiving the package. To complete the model, you only need to glue the carbon boom into the nose, glue the tail-mounting carbon pins into pre-drilled holes, mount the servos and run the pull-string wires.
Created in partnership with Performance Models in Australia, the E-Medina uses new airfoils purpose-designed for the flight envelope of modern F3/F5-RES competition flying. The wingtips are specifically optimized for great tip-stalling characteristics and could handle high variations in the angle of attack. The result? A glider that turns tighter and more efficiently than similar designs, perfect for low-level thermal flying
The properly-sized and removable V-tail is designed for control and great low-speed handling, crucial during soft thermals and the landing phase. And of course, the V-tail not only looks good but helps minimize the overall drag of the E-Medina for better L/D in all aspects of the flight envelope.
The fuselage is minimalistic but fits our ArmSoar 1806 powertrains perfectly, further minimizing overall drag from the completed model.

After ordering the wrong glider, I had a good transaction with Armsoar and I sent the plane back and they sent me the plane I meant to order. I paid shipping back... understandably. Construction was straighforward and easy with the video. The only snag I had was the spoiler servo tray. I did not receive one in my kit. Not problem though, I made one out of a few pieces of balsa. Loved the engineering on the control surfaces. I used a little tape on the spoiler to keep it in correct position because it is a bit flimsy. Works great now. I have had a wonderful time flying this incredible glider. Highly recommend Armsoar.
This glider is absolutely fantastic! I just started flying DLGs about two months ago, and wanted to add an electric F3 RES plane to my collection so that I have something to fly when my shoulder gets sore from launching the DLGs. The build of this glider goes very smoothly, just follow the YouTube video that Armsoar posted. The maiden flight today went extremely smoothly with no issues and just a touch of tweaking that is needed for the right CG. Overall I am very pleased with this model. It flies so easily compared to my E-flite Radian.
I’m making slow progress on assembly so far. Everything is as advertised.
Fun to fly , handles great, outstanding kit. Thank you armsoar great kit.
Great looking ARF. Need the power system, out of stock…. Is there a phone number to reach you. Please…
