You want a small, light-weight, high performance electric glider for F5J?

Look no further!

The Scoprion is the latest cross-tail, fully moulded glider available from Heinrich in Slovakia.

This is a fully moulded carbon, kevlar and fibreglass model that has been optimised for strength and light weight. The new Scorpion has a lightweight kevlar front fuselage that will not block radio signals. The rear boom is moulded in carbon for strength.

The wing is in two pieces for easy transportation, and the taiplane is also removable. Carbon joiner bar is supplied. Bowden cable supplied for pull-pull systems, and horns simply screw in to the pre-tapped holes. Servo covers amd Deans micro connectors also supplied.

The tail bolts on. The thin nose allows easy balancing with light weight inclusions - 28mm diameter motors and 850-3S LiPo.

This is a quality aircraft with a contest pedigree. There is full back-up in Australia of spare parts and technical assistance - you are in good hands with this one - better than buying overseas and working it out on your own!

Join the F5J revolution, and take part in the burgeoning number of F5J events around the country - a growing fraternity of friendly thermal fliers who enjoy an event without the hassles of winch lines! And use a model that does not need a van for transport.
