Building the Prelude 2.5E F5J/ALES Electric Sailplane!

One of the most impressive European made sailplanes that we have ever seen, the Prelude 2.5E 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 stabilizer are all balsa built-up with Carbon Fiber main spare and leading edge. 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 two piece wing and horizontal stabilizer are each easily removable for transport and storage. Each part is carefully hand-crafted with meticulous attention to detail. Value is simply incredible.

Great starter electric sailplane with easy building and smooth flights.

Building the Super Easy Jet Sailplane!

Super Fun 1.3E is excellent introduction to the exciting world of soaring & sport flying. This model is an incredibly well rounded, stable and predictable flyer, suitable for experienced beginners as well as advanced pilots. 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.

European Topmodel uses the latest construction techniques such as CNC milling and laser cutting. The wings as well as standard tail are all balsa/ply built-up. The fuselage is gel-coated fiberglass with carbon fiber tapered tail boom. 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 one piece wing is easily removable for transport and storage. If you are looking for an introduction to the world of thermal soaring then this is the plane for you.

Great starter, elegant, entry level electric sailplane with easy building and stable flying.

NEW Elite Telemetry Sensor Current/Voltage/Capacity & Voltario T30 12V/10A Touch Switches!

Voltario Telemetry Sensor monitors your Rx Battery Voltage (V), Capacity (mAh), and Current (A)

Voltario T30 combines Touch w/LED (Included), Wireless (R3/RSW) or Mechanical Switch functionality together with telemetry sensor in a single device. Voltario T30 uses advanced technology to reach minimum size and enhanced set of features.

Voltario T30 is designed to turn ON/OFF the electronics in your model. If you use a dedicated receiver battery, the Voltario can be used to directly replace a mechanical RC switch. Specifically in thin glider fuselages or models equipped with a small BEC circuit, the device will offer great benefits like a small size and receiver battery monitoring. The device remembers its last operating state, and if the battery is accidentally disconnected, the Voltario will automatically boot up again as soon as the battery is connected again. JetiBox Monitor/Programmer can be used for programming and live telemetry data display during bench setup and testing.

BRAND NEW ITEM: Elite Telemetry Sensor Current/Voltage/Capacity & Servo Overload Protection Voltario S30 12V/30A

We’ve got new sensors to help you keep up with all your models and builds.

Voltario S30 is designed for monitoring power consumption of a single servo. It offers additional possibility to set the overcurrent protection shutdown with telemetry alarm if servo is disconnected. JetiBox Monitor/Programmer can be used for programming and live telemetry data display during bench setup and testing.

Voltario Telemetry Sensor monitors your Servo Voltage (V), Capacity (mAh), and Current (A).

Plug the Voltario S30 between receiver output channel and servo of your choosing. Voltario S30 also works fully autonomously as a programmable fuse (this function has to be configured first). To view the live telemetry data you can link the Voltario S30 with the receiver telemetry port.

– Jeti Duplex & Graupner HoTT telemetry support (Current, Voltage, Used Capacity)
– Optional High Current Shutdown with Power Regeneration
– Programmable Overcurrent Protection (0.1A – 20A)

Shutdown Current – you can specify the maximum allowed current before the Voltario shuts down the load. By default, after reaching the shutdown current, it takes approximately 0.5 seconds before the fuse reacts. But the overcurrent shutdown reacts proportionally faster if the current is higher.
