and Eraser Xtreme are pure F3J or thermal duration (TD) glider.
These designs have proven over the years that they are highly
competitive and the faithfulness of the pilots to this design shows that
other designs don't fulfill their requirement as well. So it remains a well
balanced design using state of the art technology, yet completely hand made process.
Hollow core moulded wings with special bottom hinged flaps
(for full 90 deg. down flaps) leads to stable approach and accurate landings. The MH-32 Airfoil has a very wide speed range, it's full
potential can be obtained when using full flap control over the different flight
configuration: a couple of degrees down in thermal turns, a degree reflex in transition.
Small changes in camber have substantial changes in behaviour, which help outperform other
standard designs. The whole model is built strong yet light achieving an average weight of
around 2-2.2 kg.
The versatility and it's ease of use will allow aggressive competition
flying as well as everyday smooth thermalling.
Options available and kit contents:
Coloured strong Fiberglas fuse with carbon reinforcement tows, removable nose cone and
moulded servo tray. Tail pushrods are installed. Fuselage has also one ballast tube, on
the bottom of the fuse, below the wings, which can accept up to one pound of lead. The
Eraser has an adjustable tow hook to optimize hand tows. Hollow core moulded wings are in
three pieces. Center panel bolts down to the fuse and tips are connected to the center
panel by means of rectangular carbon wing joiner and two locating pins. All moving parts
are gapless hinged. Available in V-tail or cross tail configuration. Moulded servo cover, Allen keys for the different bolts and hardware
- Eraser T/D-F3J:
standard construction, flat tips, glass fuse with carbon reinforcement
tows, one ballast tube, wing skin glass/balsa or Rohacell(herex)/glass.
- Eraser F3B Full Carbon has been
optimized for the F3B competition. The duration task being longer, some F3J glider are well
suited for this type of competition, and so to improve the design for the distance and
speed runs, it has been drastically reinforced.
This version is also well suited for F3F racing and general slope flying.
Construction is strengthened by adding a skin of carbon inside the wing skin
full span, glass/balsa or Rohacell/carbon. This adds tremendous
stiffness to the wing. The
fuselage is full Kevlar/carbon construction and so very stiff as well, pushrods are also carbon and two ballast tubes on the bottom of the fuselage
permits to upload with ballast for max. speed performance. It is amazing how
much strength you can achieve with optimal carbon layout. This is a also a great plane
for all-round flying, in particular if can fly often on the slope.
- Eraser Xtreme. This design was created particularly
for the US TD contests, a real landing machine, light and stable. Similar in all
aspect to the above F3J version except in the construction. Fuselage is a
special Kevlar/carbon lay-up, to save maximum of weight, no ballast tube,
minimal pushrods. The wings feature a hollow carbon spar, very stiff yet very
light and with a light wing skin of glass/balsa or Rohacell/glass, the wings
remain stiff and strong for tuff winch launches. This is a contender as being
the lightest of all version and at such a light weight you
can't miss the spot any more.
- Xtreme D-box is a sturdier version of the
Xtreme, it has an additional carbon lay-up between the leading edge and
the spar, making the wing more durable for hand grabbing and adding
slight tortional stiffness. This is probably the most popular version
The Xtrem has now
proven with his designer Lubos to be one of the finest F3J glider on the market.
Lubos finished 4th at the WC in Finland and 1st at the 2001 European F3J Championship, flown with the new rules! After several years of refinement of
this models it is now a great and well balanced design, using the latest
knowledge in composite construction technology.
