Coming Soon From Top Model

Arriving soon with our next Top Model shipment – Samsara 3.2E Electric Sailplane!!!

One of the most impressive European made sailplanes that we have ever seen. The brand new competition F5J/ALES Samsara 3.2E flies as good as it looks. Gentle, smooth, and very long flights are the standards for this beauty. The careful use of composites with competition balsa, creates a good light structure that will hold its shape for a long time. The synergy of low weight and strong structure is very unusual in a production sailplane and can only be achieved with careful attention to design and construction. The entire model is constructed using free-flight techniques. Top Model uses the latest construction techniques such as CNC milling and laser cutting. The wings as well as horizontal and vertical tail parts are all classic balsa, built-up, D-box, rib/main spare design. The fuselage is gel-coated fiberglass with white finish. Whole model is covered with Ultracote. All control surfaces are hinged with adhesive tape. This fully built sailplane needs only basic assembly and motor/radio installation. The 3-piece wing and full flying stabilizer are each easily removable for transport and storage. Each part is carefully hand-crafted with meticulous attention to detail. Value is simply incredible.

TBT: Head Back To 1978!

A note from another satisfied Jeti customer.

Recently, I purchased a Jeti radio system (DS-14). I wanted to let you know I have been flying RC for 62 years and this Jeti radio is by far the best radio I have ever owned. In the past, I have been on the Futaba and JR teams but this Jeti radio system is exceptional. It brings back the excitement I felt when I first started to fly. The controls are ultra smooth. I have won the National Championship Pylon Race (1978) and have continued to compete all these years so I know a good radio system. I plan on using the radio at the 2017 NATS and wanted to sincerely thank Chief Aircraft for making it possible for me to possess such a quality piece of equipment.

Regards,

John McDermott

Well John, we are happy to hear you are pleased! Good luck at the NATS, and thank you for sharing with us this great photo from your 1978 win!

New Opale Power 2.7 Paramodel

The Power 2.7 made a big impression on us when we flew over canyons in the Southwestern US. With the strong and changing wind conditions we faced during these flights, we can say that the Power 2.7 was tested under the toughest conditions. These were truly unforgettable moments for the test pilots. And for those who think that we just scaled up the Power 1.1, rest assured that this wing was designed and developed, from the drawing board to the production model, with the same longing for perfection that guides all Opale development. The results of that single minded pursuit; simply astonishing.

Look At That Fuselage!

The saying that “great things come in small packages” does not apply here! What a better pair than an Elite Aerosports’ Havoc and a Jeti Carbon Red Transmitter… and look at how the transmitter fits inside the fuselage! HUGE performance combined in a HUGE package.
