electric is the latest development of the popular Carbon D-light series
of electric gliders from
ICARE. They are based on the same moulded carbon D-box technology
that made the Carbon D-light so successful. This type of construction
results in a very strong, light wing and a very accurate airfoil shape
over the leading edge - the most important part of the airfoil.
To reduce the overall weight, the
fuselage consists of a Kevlar pod and a carbon fibre boom. The light
Kevlar pod has the strength to stand up to the hard catches and landings
of the competitive flyer. The carbon boom is a work of art - thin,
light and stiff. The tail moment has been lengthened for improved
pitch dampening and responsiveness to control inputs. If space is of
concern, then the regular single piece all glass fuselage is also
available, this if your radio and power set-up need more space.
The low inertia of the wings allow the glider to react to the lightest lift. The
low drag, hollow-molded tips are swept back to reduce the stall speed and curved
up to reduce the turning radius. This, combined with an overall improvement in
handling, results in a sailplane that will allow you to work small low-level
thermals with confidence.
All parts of the
are pre-finished so very little time is required to get it into the air. The
two-piece wing is completely finished and covered in Oracover Light, it holds
together by means of a steel rod and against the fuselage with two bolts. The
aileron version has the servo wires pre-installed. The balsa "V" tail is covered
and only needs to be joined at the center. As an option a cruciform tail is
available, which bolts on to the fuse, the fin remains glued on. The fuselage
comes complete with a trimmed canopy, wing hold down block and ruddervator
pushrods pre-installed. You will need two of your favorite sub-micro servos and
a micro receiver. Then Choose one of these two power set ups:
For Speed 400, 7 cells, LMR, use a Speed 400 6V on 7 cells, 4:1
gearbox, 14 x 8 lightweight fold prop, 7 X KR350AE.
For long duration, like all up last down, use a speed 400 7.2V on
8-10 cells, 6:1 gearbox and 14 x 8 lightweight fold prop, 8 X
is offering following set-ups as combo specials:
LMR combo or All up last down combo: includes
Koleos Electric, Speed 400 w/gearbox, Motor controller (Rondo) and
lightweight folding prop, all you need is a micro receiver, two sub-micro servos
and a battery pack.
