Medina (2M Almost Ready to Fly)
A lot of us wants to fly high-performance F3L/F3-RES gliders for competition or sport flying, but who really has time to spend two weeks' worth of evenings putting together a balsa kit nowadays? We get it. That's why we set out to do something about that!
The Medina is an almost ready to fly (ARF) F3L/F3-RES electric glider, and comes with fully pre-built and covered surfaces so you can enjoy flying the model shortly after receiving the package. To complete the model, you need to glue the carbon boom into the nose, glue the tail-mounting carbon pins into pre-drilled holes, mount the servos and run the pull-string wires.
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 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.
