The Ceres F3B from our friend Jiri Baudis represents one of the finest, world class planes available on the market today. Jiri has spent many hundreds of hours on this project with some help from his friends, and it is his best work to date!
With wins on the F3B Eurotour already under it's belt, and engineering and mold work second to none, this model will please. The F3F model is fast, and turns hard. The F3B model is even lighter, and capable of flying in very light air, but very fast (Look for about a 6-7oz lighter model on the F3B version.). Now with the introduction of an electric version, layups are available to match your desire! Call for availability of the F3B special layup, OR any layup of your choice!
The wing is carbon with a huge joiner, the dihedral is in the joiner, wing is flat. The supplied ballast slugs fit into the wing, and 1300gm comes with the model!
The fuse is carbon, but very light, and very, very stiff and strong. We are using JR 3421's in the fuse for precise control of the tail surfaces. No problem with a very well thought out fuse layout, no "nightmares" like some of the newer models!
The 2pc Vtail comes with linkage attached and easy plug in, strong carbon rods, very clean! All connection holes are CNCed to fit a 6pin MP connector, perfectly, and match the precut wing roots as well.
This kit comes very complete, with servos frames for 3155's with custom ball bearings, no slop engineering! Servo plugs and precut harness wire, all clevis and pushrods needed, and has a 4pg instruction booklet, making the build very straight forward.
Also included are padded foil bags for the entire model, no more hanger rash!
SoaringUSA is proud to carry an extensive lineup of Ceres models; Ceres F3F, Ceres Lift F3B, Ceres E, Big Ceres Light.
