Ceres Lift F3B

The Ceres Lift is a slightly modified version of the Ceres F3B. We made new wing molds after testing numerous tweaks to the original Ceres airfoil.

The goal was to get a model that would launch higher, and work/launch better in lighter conditions. This was very difficult as the original Ceres is one of the finest models on the planet. We set out to find the "happy medium" between duration and distance, without sacrificing on speed. After a few different tries, the Ceres Lift was born. This model has all of the fine qualities of the Ceres, with a slight bit of Camber to the airfoil, making higher launches possible, especially in light conditions. The appearance of the model is identical, but upon close examination of the wing profile, you can see a slight bit of camber.

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. This special "F3B Lift" layup is the same strong structure as the F3F layup, but by using a Nomex honeycomb spar, 7 or 8 ounces are shaved off the weight!. Call for availability of the F3B special layup (including "Lift" version), 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. New for the  Ceres Lift  version is a glass nose and canopy for 2.4Ghz users. 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 CNC'd 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!
