Quantum from Sanda Models


Quantum is the name of the new F3F competition flagship manufactured by Sanda Models.

The Quantum project has been developed by an international team composed of Pierre Rondel (Overall design), Dirk Pflug (Airfoils), Gian Marco Occhibove (CAD drawing) and Ivan Sanda (milling & manufacturing) each of the team members bringing his very complementary but strong expertise in this project. 

The Quantum has been designed only with F3F in mind, starting from an aerodynamic study about optimum turn radius versus

This allowed us rank Cz - Flight Regimes by priority order, then optimize the section for a given flight regime, and therefore target the ideal thickness and camber. Based on these requirements, Dirk Pflug created a set of airfoils dedicated to the Quantum. 

Wing planform is a pure elliptical lift wing planform, with a 2.96m wingspan and 15.7 aspect ratio. We also payed attention to the wing-fuselage and tail-fuselage junctions to reduce the drag with a dedicated root airfoil.

Thanks to the wing shape, ballast compartments in the wings and in the joiner allow to incrementally increase the flying weight up to the max FAI wing loading of 75gr/dm2 without moving the CoG of the plane, so no need to add or remove balance lead in the nose. Also the maximum weight can be achieved without using very expensive tungsten slugs, brass being enough.

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

Ask for a new model


Your model aircraft is unique and you have spent a lot of time to make it what it is today. Get an icon that is worthy of the time you spent on it. For 5 US dollars we will design personal and unique icons, that nobody else will get, for up to 3 of your aircrafts.
More info soon, stay tuned...

A simple 'thank you' or a kind message is my first salary but if you think this website is useful, if you like the content, the service and if you want to participate to the hosting, feel free to donate. I thank you in advance.
