Aresti 2m from Aeroic Composite

Details

Warning : Be careful, a chinese company has stolen Aeroic's original moulds and is now illegally producing models - that is  bad enough, but they are doing it really badly with low quality materials and shoddy construction that in some cases is so bad as to render the models dangerous.
We strongly recommend to purchase your Aeroic Aircraft only from Authorized resellers listed here.

The Aresti 80 has exceeded expectations throughout the entire design and flight envelope. It is light so it will fly in almost anything and with its large ballast capacity and responsive reflex section, of course it can handle most situations very well. 

The Aresti 80 is easy to fly. It has an optimized wing planform and completely new wind tunnel tested airfoils. The layout of the wings and fuselage has ample room to allow plenty of ballast in the fuse and in the wings too.
There is a great truism: “If it looks right, it will fly right…” this is backed up 100% with the Aresti series.

Airfoils: 
Originally designed as F3X type tailplane airfoils, the sections used on the Aresti 80 were refined to provide for maximum control response with minimum deflection, and therefore drag; so the trade off was the infinitesimal increase in drag offset by the increased control response for less deflection. At 10%, the fully symmetrical double cusped section is thick enough to give good aerobatic response yet still carry a good ballast load and work well in sketchy air.

Wings: 
The optimized sections will let you go from gut busting aerobatics, through big air, graceful maneuvers down to really slow landing speeds with the flaps down. Large ailerons, large flaps and a semi elliptical wing planform each add to the overall performance of this sailplane. Horns are factory fitted with well thought out geometry to allow flush servo installation using almost any servos, making a huge range of servos possible. Using conventional linkages, you can get a clean, practical and most importantly serviceable wing installation optimized to use full servo travel to provide high torque and low slop. Ballast tubes in the wing add to the flexibility. Aloft carries the Aresti 80 in a carbon layup per the designer's preference.

Aeroteam Sine Wave Spar:
Used in several military aircraft, the Sine Wave Spar has been adapted for the first time to make up the heart of a model sailplane wing, and has frankly amazed us with its low weight, and ultra high strength. Unlike a conventional spar, the Sine Wave Spar adds terrific torsional strength and yet actually weighs considerably less than the older non-optimized spar. Now to be used in all Aeroteam sailplanes, the Sine Wave Spar is a lighter and far stronger upgrade that raises the technology level yet another notch and could be a game changer in model sailplane technology.

Fuselage: 
The beautifully contoured fuse is deep, and balanced front to back to give the side area required for some aerobatic maneuvers. Its strong, light, and stiff with Carbon and Kevlar. The electronics area is 2.4 GHz friendly with access to the radio and ballast through a conventional slide-on hatch type canopy. The long nose area provides plenty of space to easily balance the model without resorting to shoehorning lead in every nook and cranny. 
Snakes or rear mounted direct servos can be used for Rudder / Elevator control. These are all positioned to take the ‘head scratching’ out of installing the radio gear and to allow the use of standard 19 / 20mm round ballast slugs, 8 of them if you need them, which added to the ballast in the wings allows more than 1.5kg capability!
The rudder is designed large enough to be effective for both aerobatics and slow landing speeds. Wing stub fairings with location dowel holes finish the fuselage. 
An added advantage is that it’s extremely easy to convert to electric.

Tailplane: 
At 10%, the tail section is thicker than is the norm but the infinitesimal increase in drag is easily offset by the increased control response for less deflection. 
The elevator is driven by either an optional ball raced bell crank from a servo in the fuse, or a servo can be placed in a hatch through the fin to give solid elevator control. The tails remain removable for convenient transport or storage.

Joiner: 
Like all of the Aeroteam airframes, the Aresti 80 has a large joiner. Massive is the only way to describe this part. It’s just over 35 x 12mm and can handle acro and light DS.

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
