Explorer BF from NAN Models

Details

High perfomance F5J competition glider. After extensive testing during 2016 competition season, we present new Explorer model. 

Explorer is sharing airfoil with F3J model Xplorer 1. With new slimmer fuselage with removable nose, ballasting plane is much easier. Another advantage is possibility to use different motor setup for same model. 

Wing is IDS friendly and wing servos are moved as close to the center of the wing to improve handling of the plane at low altitudes, when it matters the most to work out tight thermals. Weight savings are mostly achieved in construction of the wing and amount of material used. The model is suitable for F5J use only. 

Searching for improvement and exploring the full potential a new version of the Explorer wing was born. The significantly wider surface of the flaps and ailerons make all the wingspans of the model much more agile and better performing in all weather and thermal conditions. The new version of the Explorer, offered in 3.5m, 3.8m and 4m is all the F5J pilot needs. The model is suitable for F5J use only. 

The kit is supplied with:
Carbon fuselage

  • Fully molded composite wing panels
  • Fully molded composite tail
  • Full accessory pack
