The Magic Electric has a cult following in Turkey and Eastern Europe. You only have to watch some of the hand launch videos (via Facebook unfortunately) to see this is no ordinary model, it has an exceedingly low sink rate and an excellent glide angle. The Magic EL shows that well engineered built up models can equal and even exceed the best composites, at least in low lift/low wind conditions. It really lives up to its name.

The Magic Electric is designed to fly well in all conditions, from light airs to 15 mph winds. Designed by Salahi Tezel it was developed from the Magic Pro over 8 months and has an elliptical wing to minimise induced drag. By modifying the Drela AG24/25/26 airfoils and improving the wing structure the effect of the bumpiness of film covered wings was mitigated, reducing local flow separations. This improved the performance and flying characteristics, enabling easy and tight circles even in small and weak thermals. The Magic Electric has a flying weight of about 425 g (15 oz)

The model uses carbon fibre tubular spars and tailbooms to simplify construction and minimise weight. The three piece wings have two riblets between each full rib to almost eliminate covering sag. The wing has two spoilers to reduce the trim change when applying brakes, and the large spoiler area allows almost vertical descents, stopping the possibility of fly-aways and allowing easily controlled spot landings.

The substantial fuselage is constructed from 3 mm balsa and plywood. The tailboom is a 9 mm carbon tube, ready slotted for fitting the fin and tailplane mounts. All servos are placed in the pod with the control surfaces actuated using pull-springs.

The tailplane uses a carbon spar for lightness and rigidity and is mounted on a lightweight fitting attached to the boom. Both the tailplane and fin are detachable for easy transport.

The kit consists of balsa and ply parts, a well drawn plan, and all accessories apart from RC, glue and covering material. We recommend Oracover Light covering is used. Build photos and help are available via a Facebook Magic 2 group and this excellent UK build log.
