We have a brand new, all-in-box TopModel CZ Miss Tractor. The Miss Tractor is a Czech made ARF, made entirely out of balsa/plywood, and suitable for aerotowing or sport flying. The Miss Tractor has a very strong fuselage and serves as an excellent workhorse for aerotowing large sailplanes. This towing model was built for air work such as photography, schooling, streamer, and such. It offers the possibility of using 60 to 80cc engines depending on your flight type. With 80cc gasoline engines, it is really possible to tow very large sailplanes. The flaps are particularly efficient; it is possible to direct them until 90° thanks to the special hinges system delivered in the kit. Real V/STOL capacities. The robust landing gear resists the worse treatments and makes it possible to take off from summary grounds. Thanks to its perfect geometry and to the NACA 4412 airfoil, this plane is an example of stability and will surprise you in how well it handles any task you ask of it.
Ever wonder what makes up those high quality parts? Well, wonder no-more. We can show you!
Top Model designs their scale wings to be sturdy, light weight, and easy to transport. The wings have a foam core surrounded by obechi sheeting with carbon fiber reinforcement. The wing is then covered in Ultracote. Both the wing and fuselage have pre-installed wiring harnesses that also include multi-pin connectors for fast, trouble-free setup at the field. Due to Topmodel’s ingenious retention system, the wings are easy to remove and transport, yet kept secure when in flight.
This pup loves to chase after our Albatros Classic Sport 3E and Super Sport 2.35E, and these angelic aircraft are definitely worthy of chasing.
Classic in design, but not lacking in technological advancement, the Albatros Classic Sport is one of our favorite choices for a trip to the flying field. It sports a gel-coated fiberglass fuselage, balsa/ply D-tube wing, and a carbon/balsa built up tail. The three meter wing is in three pieces wing for easy travel and storage. Complete with the ailerons, elevator, rudder, and flaps, you are in full control as you fly. As a final touch, the wing and tail are beautifully covered in transparent Ultracote.
The Super Sport 2.35 is another beautifully designed aircraft. This airframe also has a gel-covered fuselage, carbon and balsa built up tail, and a two piece wing that has a carbon fiber main spar/leading edge. Like the Albatros Classic Sport you also have ultimate control while flying with ailerons, elevator, rudder, and flaps.
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!
The Albatros 3S/E is one of the most beautiful combinations of classic design and modern technology. The nostalgic shape is perfectly blended with modern building techniques to create an electric sailplane that performs as well as it looks. The white gel-coated fiberglass fuselage combined with high-tech CF main spare/leading edge tube wing and carbon/balsa built up tail parts come together to make the Albatros a strong and light model. Do not be fooled by the its retro looks. This model was designed and built to be a 21st century favorite. With its flap equipped, 3 piece wing and full flying elevator the Albatros is one of the most impressive models that we have seen in quite some time. Each part is carefully handcrafted with meticulous attention to every detail. As soon as you open the box, you will find the Top Model build quality that we have come to expect.
We offer this guy in a Store Display (RX-R Ready) Model, or ARF. Check it out.
Take a look at the last video in this 3 part series. The EDF Self Launching System launches this scale sailplane high, with hardly any effort! For more information, Visit our “New Season 2015” section on our website.
