New From Top Model – The Still Racer

The Still Racer is a great little machine to enjoy fast flying. The airfoil used, as well as the concepts applied, give the model excellent flight characteristics and high performance. Thanks to an aerodynamically clean air-frame the model has a surprising shallow glide-slope. The Still racer has a carbon-reinforced fiberglass fuselage, polystyrene/balsa wing, structural elevator with carbon spar and leading edge and therefore is agile and break-resistant enough to be capable of aerobatics, and best part is it will be here soon!

Specifications:

  • Wingspan: 1000mm
  • Length: 700mm
  • Flying Weight: 0,65-0,75kg
  • Wing Area: 13,4g/dm2
  • Wing Loading: 48,5-56,0g/dm2
  • Airfoil: Special

Another New Addition From Estar

Also new to our line of Estar Kits is the Fokker E.III Eindecker.

The Fokker Eindecker fighters were a series of German World War I monoplane single-seat fighter aircraft designed by Dutch engineer Anthony Fokker. Developed in April 1915, the first Eindecker (“Monoplane”) was the first purpose-built German fighter aircraft and the first aircraft to be fitted with a synchronization gear, enabling the pilot to fire a machine gun through the arc of the propeller without striking the blades.

Pilot Ben – Soon To Be Crowd Favorite

When it came time to design a pilot for Opale’s new Backpack M3, they knew that they were going to need to start from the ground up. The mechanical constraints, resistance of the materials, and the pilots behavior take on a whole new dimension when its being designed to handle a 2-3m wings.

A pilot this realistic requires a harness with the same quality standards. The geometry has been optimized to achieve that highest possible pilot flexibility with the most convenient installation methods. All of the straps are easily unclipped, making installation of Ben much easier than ever before. You can equipped Ben pilot with optional Speedbar function that allows you to slightly adjust the leading edge of the wing by pulling the A lines of the risers. This changes the angle of attack of the wing and allows temporary improvements in wind penetration.
