I'm expecting ... A Reichard MAXX
I just got a reply from Modellsport Schweighofer regarding my question of color scheme, it would seem that Mr Reichard can supply custom color schemes. I'd prefer black (Oracover 21-071) underside and fluorescent signal orange (Oracover 21-065) wing top and tail. Just got it confirmed. order on it's way
I have a Reichard Svist before, beautiful, well built model.
I wanted a smaller ~2m E-glider for relaxing thermal flying from my back yard, the larger and faster models are more suited flying from my airfield. As I found out it will also be very competitive in the new ALES(US)/FAI F5J (proposal) classes. The rules (FAI F5J here) are similar with a max 30s motor run, motor cut off at 200m, 10 minute thermal and precision landing. I'm hoping for some "post" competitions.
Here are are a few tips from some California guys flying it.
Carbon fuselage ; carbon gondole and carbon tube
Foam core balsa sheeted two-piece wing
Made by CNC technology
Pre-made servo trays
Oracover on wings and balsa tail parts
Tight covering, with all seams hand-sealed
Includes all necessary hardware
Rudder, elevator, ailerons, flaps, motor
