  • Alien 1.2m
    • New!

    Alien 1.2M, Slope/DLG, Standard, Multicolor/Carbon 

    All new for 2022, the Alien is all about fun! 

    Designed by Christophe Bourdon and manufactured by OA composites. The Alien is a flying wing slope soaring model that can also be used as a DLG glider. Get the standard version if you are leaning towards slope soaring in moderate conditions and DLG flying. The strong version is recommended if you will be flying primary slope and even moderate DS soaring. 

    The Alien is quick to build and has a high level of pre-fabrication. Many 3D printed parts are included with the model. Trays for the wing that fit servos that have a X08H footprint. A08, X08, HS08, X08 plus, and MKS 6120. There is a 3D printed servo mount for the rudder servo which is designed for the KST X06 (vertical mount). A ballast tube is also included, however you must fabricate your own lollipop style ballast that has a 19mm diameter. 

    Extensive hardware package with all horns, rudder spring, cable, wire, throwing peg, etc. 

    Consider using a standard rudder pushrod if you are going to build the strong model and fly it with ballast or light DS. 

    CG and elevator neutral positions are very critical with this model! Please read the manual before flight!

  • Micro Max 1.15m
    • New!
    Call for availability

    The MicroMax Pocket F3F is a great new fast slope soarer capable of extreme fun flying. The concept was inspired by Henning Plemo Schmidt, with aero design by Christophe Bourdon. Structural design and implementation is by Anton Ovcharenko so this model is of the highest pedigree. Its inspiration was the lack of high performance small gliders optimized for fast slope flying. 

    The Micro Max is 1.15m “45”” wingspan features technology from F3K construction.- Solid core machined rohacell foam cores in the wing and tail sections, bladder molded fuselage. 

     V-tail linkage are simple "L" bends which make removal of the tails a breeze.  Ailerons are "top drive" linkage and horns. 

    Recommended servos are MKS 75k for the wing and and MKS 75k for the tails. 

     There is a cutout in the wing saddle of the fuse to allow for ballast. 

     Recommended battery is a 350-1000mah 1S lipo. And a small 4-6 channel receiver.

  • Strike 3 DLG
    • New!
    Call for availability

    The Strike 3 is the latest evolution of the Strike mini DLG. It features a solid core Rohacell 31 wing and tails. The fuse has been re-designed to make servo and gear installation much more convenient for the user. There are now openings on both sides of the fuse for servo,rx, and battery installation. 

    Aileron pushrods are routed outside of the fuse. 

    Made by OA Composites in Ukraine, the Strike 3 features all the latest state of the art construction techniques of 1.5m F3K models. 

    A perfect model to keep in your car, tons of fun in a small package! 

    The springs should be 50mm long from bend to bend. 90 degree bend so legs should be perpendicular to each other. One spring for each surface.


    Features amazing graphics designed by Jerem-Aero!

  • NRJ 1.5m DLG
    • New!

    The NRJ is a new competition model, built by OA Composites, (Anton Ovcharenko and his team), from Ukraine, designed by Christophe Bourdon from France. 

     

    Reaching the excellence in a DLG concept is for our actual times very difficult if one wants to be original and durable on this sensible market. Our goal was to put in the project all the best choices for aerodynamics, for handling, flight abilities using the actual best technology and building skills. There is more to discover yet, but for now, here is a bird that we are proud to present :

The NRJ F3K 

Its characteristics are :
19 dm², Aspect ratio of 11.9 , 150mm root chord and an average chord of 130mm, which allows a good cruise speed and a a good L/D. The main difficulty about this type of design is to keep the wing performance at slow speed and High AOA. The wing has been developed specifically to address this issue. 

The airfoil series is going from 6% to 5.2%, keeping a reasonable camber and a good elliptical lift management along the wingspan ( without tip twisting ) . Chris made the choice to keep good acceleration characteristics and the average momentum of wing reasonably low and smooth to give to the model an easy speed-changing and a global ease, very appreciated in uncertain flight situations.

The good dyhedral allows small inputs on the radio sticks to keep the circle while thermalling , with the minimum drag.
The special tip shapes are wanted to mark a different style during flight and to make the model more recognizable.
Launch abilities are up in the modern ranking, our small 4 in nose thin fuselage will help in low drag and speed flight modes.

The RTF weight would start from 190 gr for light version , giving the possibilities of great minimum sink rate flights, 210 gr for the standard version, (Textreme 60gr!!) and to something like 230 gr for the strongest layup.
The NRJ is a very “hands off” flying aircraft, with excellent L/D, and exceptional stability at lower speeds.
