Explorer - F5J 4000 Ultra Light

High performance F5J competition glider with countless wins! 

After extensive testing over MANY competition seasons and MANY prototypes, we are proud to offer this electric version Explorer sailplane. 

Explorer 4000 F5J Ultra Light shares the same, proven airfoil with the Xplorer 1 F3J model. With its new slimmer fuselage with removable nose, ballasting plane is much easier. Another advantage is possibility to use different motor setup for same model.  

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 model is suitable for F5J use only. 

The kit is supplied with:

  • Carbon fuselage
  • Fully molded composite wing panels
  • Fully molded composite tail
  • Full accessory pack
