Optimus is brand new for 2015 and offers outstanding aerodynamic design combined with the very latest in carbon composite spread tow construction. At 3.83m wingspan it is ideally sized mid way between the popular 3.5m and 4m formats giving an ideal balance of performance and handling throughout its very wide speed range.
Made exclusively from new unidirectional bi-axial carbon spread tow material, the Optimus structure is extremely stiff and light with electric versions and lightweight glider versions ready to fly from as little as 1800g. This very low starting weight combined with a highly efficient wing planform and airfoil profiles gives the Optimus an outstanding float and minimum sink performance.
