This completely new concept combines an attractive V-tail fuselage with three different wings. Each wing connects to the same fuselage. Powerful magnets hold the wings in place and let you change the setup easily and quickly out in the field without tools.

Triple speed has a wingspan of 178 cm, single dihedral and long ailerons. The wing section has a straight underside, is easy to build and also ideal for aerobatics and has a respectable top speed.

Triple RES has a wingspan of 199 cm and a more pronounced dihedral than “Triple thermic“. Radio control is rudder, elevator and spoilers.

Triple thermic (mostly pictured here) has a wingspan of 255 cm and is equipped with ailerons and spoilers. The wing section is optimized for thermal soaring and provides excellent flying characteristics and performance. 10-11mm servos are required for the wing.

The fuselage has a wide nose to accept 28mm outrunners and offers room for a 3S-LiPo up to 2,500 mAh. All versions have a removable canopy secured by magnets and a removable cover on the belly of the fuselage, which gives access to the V-tail servos.

All three versions of the Triple are all-wood designs, putting an emphasis on model building, which has a long tradition at aero-naut. The fuselage is built up of balsa and light-ply; a well thought-out concept ensures a rapid building process and makes mistakes almost impossible. The V-tail consists of precisely laser-cut parts and uses a special jig for good results. The wings use conventional ribs and spars, and just require a flat building board for construction. The trailing edges are built-up components and combine low weight with good strength..

The kits includes all laser-cut wood parts required to build the model, spruce spars, control linkage parts and snakes, and a small parts bag. Detailed building instructions with step-by-step graphics and text will answer all your questions.

You buy a kit with the wing you prefer, and extra wing kits are available separately.

Triple Thermic is mostly pictured here - each kit is available separately, and each type of wing also available to order.
