Visit for more photos and news of the Phoenix motorglider.

Short Span Phoenix

With the short wingtips, the Phoenix span is 36 feet. It takes about one minute to change from the 15 meter (49 feet) span to the 36 foot span.

The wings retain the full span flaperons with the short span, meaning there are full span control surfaces to control bank. So the roll rate is very fast.

The Phoenix with the short tips will outperform every single LSA airplane in every regard!
