Now in the Magellan, the fuselage design has been overhauled to meet the
tendency of using more the LiPo battery packs and also to have the
ability to use the versatile brushless outrunner motor. The design of
the fuselage is now a one pieces canopy style fuselage made from full
Kevlar/carbon cloth, for extreme strength, stiffness and lightness.
The tail servos have been moved under the
V-tail, removing the pushrods and allowing very precise control of the
elevator. On the other hand this gives more room for the radio gear and
battery installation under the wing. V-tail is also bolt on for easy
The whole wing is a carbon D-box construction, even the trailing edge, improving
the overall stiffness of the wing. Aileron are molded carbon. 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 balsa "V" tail is covered
and only needs to be joined at the center. The fuselage comes complete with a
trimmed canopy, wing hold down block. You will need 3-4 of your favorite sub-micro servos and
a micro receiver. Hardware package and instruction are completing the kit.
Magellan Electric, ailerons and
brushless combo, includes a Compact 700, HET20, EP13503S1P LiPo, Cam 11 x 8
