Folding Prop SLS
This unit is designed around a
brushless outrunner, comes with a molded base frame and a metal folding arm. Weight with motor is around
800g. Unit will power airplanes
up to 10kg and will handle 5S to 6S LiPo packs. The unit operates in
similar way to the belt driven system, so most control functionality are
the same. Unit comes preassembled and wired, with a special high torque
servo and a 4 or 5 blade folding prop. Unit has also a closed position

AFT type SLS
These units are the most ingenious units on
the market currently, they combine the best world of each units
described to date. The motor is configured as direct drive on
top of pylon, and to reduce the cut-out on the fuselage, the
system is single blade prop (which is also the most efficient
prop configuration). Now the arm is attached to a complex
geometry rail system that swings the arm in and out, through a
tiny hole (the video explains this easily). All is controlled by
a sequencing unit for flawless operation. Two prop sizes with
different power setups are available. These units can be
installed in most of our 1/3 and 1/2 scale gliders.

This smart electronic
device is like your third hand in SLS operation. It will allow
full operation of any of our SLS units by means of a single
toggle switch on your transmitter.
can the unit do:
Control of up to 5 servos:
- Arm actuating servo
- Right door servo
- Left Door servo
- Motor (esc)
- Tow release servo
Fully automatic unfolding and folding of SLS arm with a three
position toggle switch on transmitter, inclusive control of motor
esc (motor on, motor off)
Slow scale operation of SLS arm.
Gear safe power up and brake of motor.
Control of optic prop sensor, before closing SLS, SLS will only
fold back when prop is fully and safely stopped at right
Additional evaluation of two limit switches, to avoid a false
startup of motor in any case (for ex. If a servo fails).
User programmable servo travel and direction, which are
automatically and permanently stored in EPROM.
At first motor startup, esc will throttle up to pre-determined
level and after 6 seconds will go full throttle. This to avoid
nose tipping of model at startup ground rolling and so have a
smooth progressive start.
Possibility to let the doors open or closed during the climb or
