Kite from Soaring Models


Kite is produced in 3 different versions: CFK-Light, CFK-Regular, CFK-Strong.

The wing of the CFK-Light version is laminated with Carbonwaeve 20gr/m², the wing of the CFK-Regular version is laminated with Carbonwaeve 40gr/m², and the wing of the CFK-Strong version is laminated with Textreme 60gr/m². All 3 versions have a Rohacell core.

The shapely kite CFRP hull is made with the new "inflation technology". The two rudder and elevator servos (e.g. KST X08 or Dymond D-47) as well as the battery (e.g. 1S 250-350mAh) & receiver fit comfortably under the removable fuselage nose. The rudder and elevator are controlled by a weight-saving cable linkage. The wing with its two servos (e.g. KST X08H) is screwed to the fuselage from above with 2 countersunk screws. The elevator is attached with 2 screws to an aerodynamic and shapely pylon. The rudder is force-fitted directly to the end of the fuselage. All holes, threads and screw connections are precisely prefabricated in the fuselage and wing, the continuous ailerons are mounted as "Elasticflaps" on the underside. 

The special feature of the Kite fuselage is the ballasting or changing of the ballast, this takes only a few seconds, there are no screws or pins to fix. The ballast is located at the top of the hull, so you do not have to turn your model over. Simply pull off the nose cone and then pull out the ballast at the plastic clamp with one finger. After you have simply placed the ballast or another ballast in the guide, it is secured by attaching it to the nose cone.
Included in the kit are many required small parts such as rudder horns, "flap steering" throw blade as well as all required parts for the "rope steering" of the rudder and elevator.

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
