The Tucan continues to extend the value of the RCRCM line of products by putting the features of a 3 meter ship into an affordable 2 meter package! From it’s super efficient V-Tail design, to it’s generous long nose section, this little guy was built for fun! Like it’s larger siblings, the Tucan sports ailerons and flaps on it’s two piece wing.
RCRCM has been making quite a name for itself in the RC world lately. Their designs are impressive, and we think they offer the best “bang for your buck” of anyone in the industry! The fit and finish of this model is seldom seen in this price range, add to that a high level of pre-fab and a nice selection of color schemes,it is truly hard to beat!
Words from the designer:
I want to introduce to you my new design, that I named TUCAN…
The Tucan is a bird of beautiful plumage and a huge beak and it is one of the endangered animals of South America … with a majestic flight and beautiful colors that make it an incredible bird. When my friends of RCRCM asked me to design a glider for slope, I didn’t´t have any doubt that it would be an exciting project. So, we started working together as soon as possible. After a few months I finished the drawing and I was very satisfied with the work done! When I saw the first Tucan out of the mold, I was very impressed with the final result…So I must say that it is a beautiful glider of two-meters wingspan, which was designed with the purpose that every pilot could experience a flight with a similar performance than a F3F glider. Built with the best and most resistant materials available, excellent airfoil and V-tail, we intend to get a close, fast and precise flight of a glider in slope. I want to thank my friends of RCRCM - Sail Aerotech for trusting in my designs again! And make me part of this new generation of high performance´s glider. The Tucan is a great slope glider and I hope you enjoy it a lot!
