The E-flite® Mystique™ RES 2.9 m ARF sailplane is inspired by the popular full-house Mystique 2.9 m except it has been specially modified to provide exquisite performance with only rudder, elevator and spoiler guidance controls.

Its large wingspan is built with just the right amount of polyhedral to provide gentle flight characteristics yet still have the authority to turn abruptly into a thermal the instant it’s sensed. The Selig S8032 airfoil used provides excellent handling over a wide speed range, plus the all-wood open-wing construction keeps weight to a minimum so you can take advantage of even the smallest amount of lift. Built-in spoilers offer the ability to dump lift without a gain in airspeed so you have control to escape a thermal and perform spot landings with greater precision. The contour of the molded fiberglass fuselage is sleek yet provides ample room for its pushrods to run internally and still have room for a powerful Li-Po motor battery.
