Vixen 2 F5J X-tail
The Vixen 2 F5J is a proven model with an exceptional design pedigree.
By popular demand, we now offer an X-tail, 4pc wing, 2pc fuse compact version of the highly successful V-tail original!
The JW/Drela/DP wing section/planform is a good looking, great performing model that is perfect for F5J. The redesigned wing has been changed to a 4-servo design, but if you wish, there is an outer-tip servo bay in the wing for 6 servos. The wing has factory installed LDS linkages.
The large X-tail works very well at low speed, and with the polyhedral wing, and long tail moment, it translates to a very stable, predictable flying model that's very easy to tune up and reach maximum flight performance.
The signature Daryl Perkins inspired pre-hinged canopy on the Vixen 2 is a nice touch giving you easy access to all of your electric drivetrain components. In a very short time, you’ll be in the air, and you'll realize what an amazing world class F5J sailplane this is.

- Pushrods installed wing/supplied for fuse
