Beta 1400 from Kavan

Details

The new KAVAN BETA 1400 keeps the familiar curves of the original BETA 1400 - yet she is a completely new model with slightly different dimensions, new wing section, new brushless motor with a folding propeller and finest accessories. New moulds and advanced EPO foam moulding technologies incorporated ensure all parts are much finer and precise.BETA 1400 - a tireless training workhorse - is a great choice for newcomers; she will help finding your way from initial prangs to the basics of aerobatic flying or thermal soaring without much fuss. Sunday flyers will find her to be a compact and easy-to-carry model for amazingly relaxing flying.

BETA 1400 is a great motor glider/elementary trainer powered by a brushless motor featuring aileron, elevator and rudder control. Rugged, yet light, airframe made of virtually unbreakable EPO foam makes her crash-proof - or at least easy to repair if something really serious happened.

The EPO foam fuselage comes with the C2814-1400 brushless motor in the pylon, 7x6” folding propeller, KAVAN R-20B ESC and GO-09 elevator and rudder servos installed. The detachable canopy is secured by a magnetic lock. The cooling air intake in the front of the pylon keeps the motor nice and cool. The two-piece EPO wing is supplied with two GO-09 aileron servos and their linkage installed. The wing halves are joined by a carbon tube joiner and secured by screws on the bottom side of the wing. The empennage is also of the EPO foam; elevator and rudder are controlled by a pair of wire push rods.

Preparing for the first flight is a breeze: glue the horizontal tailplane to the fuselage, join the wing haves and secure with two bolts, connect the receiver and flight pack - that’s all folks!

You will need at least 4-channel RC set to control your BETA 1400. Using a computer radio featuring some advanced set-up options and mixes is always an advantage; you can have an independent control of both aileron servos allowing for aileron differential and airbrake mixing. Dual rates or exponentials can make the model control much easier as well.

You will need 11.1 V 1600-2200 mAh LiPo flight pack to fly your BETA 1400.

BETA 1400 is suitable for beginners (under the guidance of a skilled pilot, do not try to start all alone, please!) - as well as any Sunday flyer or everybody who just wants to have some fun. The default set-up makes her a gently and docile model offering a good way how to learn and improve your flying skills step by step. You will learn the correct and timely way of the stick handling, coordinated turns using ailerons, elevator and rudder simultaneously...everything you will need with your next model - a large glider, an aerobatic plane, a (semi)scale model. The linkage design as well the transmitter with PC or Android/iOS application setting option make the adjustment easy: a beginner can start with small and safe servo throws, whilst an experienced pilot may go for large servo throws and some stunts. Loops, barrel rolls, stall turns are easy with your BETA 1400! There is a plenty of power for a good climbing rate; yet not too much to cause troubles for inexperienced pilots. BETA 1400 is capable of using even quite weak thermals soaring up there “for ages”.

The ARF (colored) set contents: EPO fuselage with the brushless motor, 20A ESC, 7x6" folding propeller, and 2 servos, EPO wing with 2 servos, EPO horizontal and vertical tailplane, carbon wing joiner and instruction manual.

The White kit contents: EPO fuselage, 7x6" folding propeller, EPO wing, EPO horizontal and vertical tailplane, carbon wing joiner, set of small accessories, two sheets of stickers (one for the red and one for the blue version) and instruction manual.
