The Vinco TR GPS is a model specifically designed for F5J and GPS Triangle competition. Vinco TR GPS can work the lightest lift, yet penetrate upwind, moving around the field with ease. You find and center even the smallest "bubbles" and go up with them. The Vinco TR GPS comes with a 4 piece wing, Ballast and 2 piece fuse for better packing for travel. The nose is all glass for 2.4 and GPS components.
Vinco TR GPS
The Vinco TR GPS is a model specifically designed for F5J competition. Its aerodynamic design is based on the very successful Gerald Taylor wing but optimized for the needs of F5J competition. Vinco is also optimized to work with a very low wing loading: around 4.6 oz/sq.ft. (13 g/sq.dm). With such a remarkably low wing loading, Vinco can work the lightest lift, yet penetrate upwind, moving around the field with ease. You find and center even the smallest "bubbles" and go up with them.
This remarkable performance is possible thanks to Vinco's latest-generation airfoils which are precisely maintained along the entire wingspan, reducing drag and also creating the optimum lift, making this model a superb flyer.
The 2 piece fuselage is made with the internal pressure technique and includes all of the threads for assembling wings and tail directly from the mold. All the model is designed and built to be as light as possible, but strong enough to resist the hard life that the high level competition will cause.
The Vinco TR is produced by Spain’s leading manufacturer of hand launched gliders, so DLG technology is used throughout the construction. The model is built to be as light as possible, using the very best high tech spread carbon to achieve a structure and flying weight not possible until recently. The 69-inch (175 cm) long one-piece carbon fuselage weighs approx 4.25oz (120g). Its long nose and large canopy hatch give good access to the flight battery and allow for easy powertrain and R/C installation. The rudder and elevator servos are mounted in front of the wing for low inertia, with control surfaces operated by lightweight pull-pull wires which are factory installed and connected to carefully engineered bell cranks, which actuate pushrods operating the tail surfaces accurately, and without any free play.
