A lot of us wants to fly high-performance e-RES/F5 gliders for competition or sport flying, but may not have the skills or time to spend two weeks’ worth of evenings putting together a balsa kit nowadays? We get it. That’s why we set out to do something about that!
The Medina comes fully pre-built and covered, so to complete the model you need to glue the carbon boom into the nose, glue the tail-mounting carbon pins into pre-drilled holes, mount the servos and run the pull-string wires. An electric power system and servos are not included in the kit, but are available from Performance Models.
The E-Medina has been designed by Performance Models and is based on the successful OZeRES 2 with the only change being the rounded wings and tail shapes. Like the OZeRES 2, the Medina has purpose-designed airfoils for modern F3/F5-RES competition flying. The wingtip airfoil is specifically optimized for great tip-stalling characteristics and can handle high variations in angle of attack. The result? A glider that turns tighter and more efficiently than similar designs, perfect for low-level thermal flying.
The properly-sized and removable V-tail is designed for control and great low speed handling, crucial during soft thermals and the landing phase. And of course, the V-tail not only looks good, but helps minimize the overall drag of the E-Medina for better L/D in all aspects of the flight envelope.
The fuselage is minimalistic but fits the ArmSoar 1806 powertrains perfectly, further minimizing overall drag by keeping the fuselage size to a minimum.

Although I do my best to complete this library, you may not find the model you are looking for.
In this case, do not hesitate to ask me to add it : You're not bothering me. Please be patient, depending on my workload, I may take a few days to work on your model and gather information.
I'm sometime asked to add a non flying model to this library but unfortunately, it's not the focus of this website
