The Ventus 2c is the high performance
open class glider (18 m span) manufactured by Schempp-Hirth in Germany. It
features a unique wing planform with three polyhedral. With flaps it allow full
trailing edge camber change for improved speed range.
This Ventus 2c is a
1/6 scale replica and comes as an all molded kit and is highly finished. This model is
great on a winch for thermal flying but will do well also on a slope. Building and flying require
some skill, thus the designation for intermediate pilot.
The kit comes completely finished. The
wings are hollow molded and the ailerons and flaps are hinged. The elevator is
bolt on and so removable for ease of transportation. The clear plastic canopy is fitted to the
fiberglass tray and hinged sidewise like the full size, molded seat and interior
are finishing the cockpit. Retractable landing gear is available as an option. All what's required is your radio gear. You will need
4 sub-micro servos in the wings, 2 micro servos and a small 6 channels receiver.
