Medina (2m Balsa F3L/F5L Kit)

by ArmSoar
Type: Gliders

Want to enjoy the performance and ease of flying of the 2-meter Medina RC glider, but prefer to do the build yourself? The Medina kit is here! The kit includes hardware for the Medina to be built for either F3L (pure glider) or F5L (electric). 

Created in partnership with Performance Models in Australia, the Medina uses new airfoils purpose-designed for the flight envelope of modern F3/F5-RES competition flying. The wingtips are specifically optimized for great tip-stalling characteristics and could handle high variations in the angle of attack. The result? A glider that turns tighter and more efficiently than similar designs, perfect for low-level thermal flying

The properly-sized and removable V-tail is designed for control and great low-speed handling, crucial during soft thermals and the landing phase. And of course, the V-tail not only looks good but helps minimize the overall drag of the E-Medina for better L/D in all aspects of the flight envelope.

The fuselage is minimalistic, further minimizing overall drag from the completed model.
