The Nimbus 4D is the current open class super two seater design in production by Schempp-Hirth in Germany. It is the successor to the earlier 24.6 m Nimbus 3D. The six piece (26.5 m span) Discus plan form wing has full span camber changing flaperons. It has a glide ratio of about 60. It's particular look with the triple taper leading edge and forward swept wings is really graceful in the air. We at ICARE are very proud to offer here four models at following scale: 1:8.5 (3.1 m span) sheeted foam wing, 1:6.5 (4 m span) and 1:5 (5.3 m span) all glass super-scale reproduction, 1:3.75 (7 m span) sheeted foam super scale reproduction of this very high performance glider.

The size of this glider makes it a good candidate to get into scale soaring. As the kit comes with hollow melded wings, they are very accurately reproduced. The cockpit comes with all main components like the instrument mushrooms, seats, head rests done. The HQ airfoil has very smooth flying characteristics. Even with this high aspect ratio wing it can be launched from a hi-start, it likes it behind a tow plane for thermal duration flying. It has a graceful thermalling capability, and the wings are strong to withstand some abuse. Not suited for aerobatics though. Adequate construction of the wings shows realistic flex and curvature in the air.

This is not a kit, the model comes completely built, and ready for radio installation. Only a few hours are required, before you go to the field. The wings are hollow melded as any other surface (rudder, elevator). Airbrakes are installed and ready to be connected by the mean of a micro servo in the wing. The high gloss, gel coated Fiberglas fuselage has the wing joiner carrying tubes and the rudder control tube installed. Retract is installed and functional. A small package hardware and building instructions are completing the kit.

Radio requirements are two micro servos for the ailerons, two for the flaps and two additional micro servos for the airbrakes. Three regular servos for the elevator, rudder and retract. An additional servo might be installed for aerotow.
