A well balanced design using state of
the art technology, yet in a completely hand made process. Lubos (the designer), likes airframes that allows him to
change the in flight characteristics by the use of flaps,
increasing the L/D, lift or speed. The AH airfoil was
designed with this in mind, first it allows to make
camber changes with minimal changes in pitch. The idea was also to
fly with "dynamic" camber change, meaning that the camber control was on
the stick like the elevator, allowing to
continuously adjust or correct the flight like you would adjust or
correct pitch with the elevator control.
Hollow core moulded wings with special bottom hinged flaps
(for full 90 deg. down flaps) leads to rock stable approach and accurate landings. The
AH Airfoil has a very wide speed range, it's full
potential can be obtained when using full flap control over the different flight
configuration: a couple of degrees down in thermal turns, a degree reflex in transition.
Small changes in camber have substantial changes in behaviour. The whole model is built strong yet light achieving an average weight of
around 2.35 kg.
The versatility and it's ease of use will allow aggressive competition
flying as well as everyday smooth soaring.
Options available and kit contents:
Coloured strong Fiberglas fuse with carbon reinforcement tows, removable canopy and servo tray. Tail pushrods are installed. Fuselage
comes with a ballast tube, which can accept up to one pound of lead. The
Aspire has an adjustable tow hook to optimize hand tows. Hollow core moulded wings are in
three pieces. Center panel bolts down to the fuse and tips are connected to the center
panel by means of rectangular carbon wing joiner and two locating pins. All moving parts
are gapless hinged. Available in V-tail or cross tail configuration. Moulded servo cover, Allen keys for the different bolts and hardware
Aspire Full Carbon
has been optimized
for the F3J competition. Drastically reinforced with full carbon lay-up.
Construction is strengthened by adding a skin of carbon inside the wing skin
full span, glass/balsa or Rohacell/carbon. This adds tremendous
stiffness to the wing. The
fuselage is full Kevlar/carbon construction and so very stiff as well, pushrods are also carbon and two ballast tubes on the bottom of the fuselage
permits to upload with ballast for max. speed performance. It is amazing how
much strength you can achieve with optimal carbon layout. This is a also a great plane
for all-round flying, in particular if can fly often on the slope. This version
is ideal of average day competition.
Aspire spread-tow carbon, uses a special cloth
with inserted carbon tows, this helps reduce the weight and still keep a
good strength. This extra light version is recommended for early
morning, no wind day competition flying.
