Sniper high end 3D helicopter
developed the Sniper after the MaxiR. With the experience of the
previous designs, they developed a new larger main
blades for rotor of 1010 mm (39") and design the required
changes to the overall geometry.
Sniper is a
helicopter without compromise. The frame is optimized for use of an AXI
motors in the 2820 series. The head is built in
metal. It was also decided
that the use of 3 to 4 Lithium-Polymer cells was the best,
though battery holder designed accordingly.
Flying capabilities of
the Sniper are unique. Slim blades with relatively heavy
internal weights, in combination with lightweight
paddles make the Sniper to be the most stable helicopter
of its class, but with no impact to ability to make fast
3D manoeuvres when flying aerobatics. The performance of
the AXI motor is higher than most batteries are able to
handle (the in-flight performance is limited by the
manoeuvrability allows unlimited 3D flying including
dynamic changes between "normal" and "inverted" position
at zero head speed. The rolls can be made at a rate of
360° per second continuously. Flying backwards and
sidewards are limited only by the capability of the gyro
to keep the tail aligned.
repair/service work, most of it can be made without any
glue, all usual serviceable joints are screwed. All
parts, which can be broken at a "standard" crash can be
replaced within 15 minutes.
We consider the Sniper
to be the top end helicopter.
