Element from TOPMODEL CZ

Details

One of the most impressive European made sailplanes that we have ever seen. The brand new competition F5J/ALES Element 3.5E flies as good as it looks. Gentle, smooth, and very long flights are the standards for this beauty. The careful use of composites with competition balsa, creates a good light structure that will hold its shape for a long time. The synergy of low weight and strong structure is very unusual in a production sailplane and can only be achieved with careful attention to design and construction. The entire model is constructed using free-flight techniques. Top Model uses the latest construction techniques such as CNC milling and laser cutting. The wings as well as horizontal and vertical tail parts are all classic balsa with Carbon Fiber main spare and leading edge design. The fuselage is gel-coated fiberglass with white finish and CF canopy. Whole model is covered with Ultracote. All control surfaces are hinged with adhesive tape. This fully built sailplane needs only basic assembly and motor/radio installation. The 3-piece wing and full flying stabilizer are each easily removable for transport and storage. Each part is carefully hand-crafted with meticulous attention to detail. Value is simply incredible.

  • Lightweight gel-coated white fiberglass fuselage and canopy
  • Three-piece wing is made in balsa framework with wing joiner, leading edges and wing spar made of carbon and covered with Oracover®
