The Xplorer is
F3J world champion model flown by Benedikt Feigl. Following the success
of the Shadow, the Xplorer brings the wing span back to 3.5m improving
the low speed handling, particularly useful in landings. It still keeps
the good hang around capability, so a great thermal duration ship. This
design has had very good success now in the Eurotour contest, winning
most of them. It seems to be the new design to beat.
This is the electric version of the WC
winning Xplorer. Designed for F5J Contest. The wing is 3 piece
carbon D-box construction which is both light and strong. The fuselage
will accommodate motors up to 35mm diameter and there is room for a 4-8
cell Lipo. The receiver, elevator and rudder servos are housed in
special compartments in the fuselage but just behind the wing to
distribute weight evenly. The model will fly on a wide range of motors
and its fantastic soaring ability is second to none. Fuselage pushrods
are pre installed and the kit contains a full hardware pack.
