This big 5-meter Ventus 2ax is a magnificent flier with a polyhedral wing (3 angles) and swept-back taper, winglets (with wheels!), and pre-installed landing gear!
5-Meter, 1:3 Scale Sailplane
This huge 5M Ventus 2ax is what you would expect from a 5M class airframe, plus much more. A scale version of the full size racer, this model offers looks, and performance. Take a close look at the pictures below. This is one of those models that just keep looking better the longer you look at it.
The wing features a unique wing planform with three polyhedral and winglets. In real life this is a 18M/15M race machine. The overall design is optimized for speed, L/D and performance.
The kit comes completely finished, with all of the incredible detail you see here. The wings are hollow molded and the ailerons and flaps are live hinged. The elevator is bolt on for ease of transportation. You'll enjoy the preinstalled scale landing gear. With flaps and spoilers, it is also a breeze to slow down on landings.
The overall fit and finish of this model is world class. From the detailed cockpit and scale opening canopy, to the sliding windows and ingenious spar system, this is one of the best.
