Double Carbon ST F5D
The Jibe 2 is an evolution of the very successful Jibe from FL Bird Works. Building on the strengths of the original Jibe, the Jibe 2 sports a redesigned cross tail, a smaller frontal area, and a redesigned fuselage to accommodate the new Li-Po rules for F5D! A slighter larger wing, and spred tow double carbon layup work together with the new tail to make an incredibly robust plane that still feels light and crisp at the controls.
Don't be put off by the Jibe 2's thoroughbred background, although she is race ready, she is still smooth and predictable throughout the speed envelope, making her a great sport flier as well..
- The ailerons are bottom hinged
- Sealed surfaces with a molded gapseal to reduce drag as much as possible.
- Carbon Fiber Construction
- Very stiff one piece wing design
- Painted in the molds for a mirror finish
