Explorer 5 GPS is a giant leap in higher performance!
Whether scratching for altitude in light lift conditions or speeding through sink to the next thermal, the Explorer 5 GPS gives you a BIG advantage over other designs. State-of-the-art construction methods combined with maximum airfoil camber flexibility and efficiency, plus Explorer's sleek, low drag airframe optimized for “GPS-Triangle-racing” combine to make this SoaringUSA exclusive sailplane impossible to beat. The Explorer GPS has a 2.4 friendly nose cone and additional ballast tubes in the wing.
The wing is IDS friendly and wing servos are moved as close to the center of the wing as possible to improve handling of the plane at low altitudes when it matters the most to work out tight thermals. Weight savings are mostly achieved in construction of the wing and amount of material used.
The kit is supplied with:
- Carbon fuselage, 2.4 friendly nose
- Fully molded composite wing panels
- Solid core composite tail
- Full accessory pack
