The Koleos 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 Koleos KC 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 Koleos 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 KR1100AAE.

ICARE 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.
