Mibo Electra2 3.5 F5J Full Carbon X-Tail
$ 1,599.99 $ 1,349.99
Brand Mibo Modeli
Full Carbon X-tail White/Pink
Full spread tow wing, Machined solid core tails with fiberglass and carbon, Spread Tow boom.
Mibo has been hard at work revising the already stellar Electra which is wildly popular in Europe.
Some of the key features-
-New Fuse, shorter nose and longer tail boom
-New Tail group, slightly smaller in dimensions and lighter
-New Tip panels with more efficient tip design
-New construction method of wing resulting in large weight savings.
In addition there will be all new graphics and more visible stripes on bottom of wing.
This will be available in 2 spans, 3.5 and 3.9
Development of the larger span wing was started for a model called the Hydra, but now will be renamed Electra2 3.9
- Wingspan: 3480 mm
- Length: 1700 mm (with Spinner)
- Wing airfoil: MT-25750-L
- Tail airfoil: HT13
- Wing area: 68,8 dm²
- Tail area: 7,4 dm²
- Empty airframe weight: ˂1000 g
- Flying weight glass/disser 1500 g - 1700 g
The Electra2 is the ultimate high tech light weight electric sailplane designed for the trendy F5J-FAI competition class.
The wings have a relatively thin airfoil and wide chord flaps. The ailerons are extended to the end of the tip to give you more flying agility along with an outstanding soaring capability. By using 4 servos mounted directly in the wing, the flaps and ailerons allow camber changing of the wing section in all phases of flight, a wide speed range and crow braking for precision landings.
Standard “LIGHT” version wings have a carbon main spar; meanwhile the complete wing has a light reinforcement made of "Disser" glass cloth with diagonal implant of carbon rowing strips. This structure allows a good increment of torsion stiffness with minimum weight add-up and flying in wind conditions up to 6 m/s.
The 3 - piece wing is completely assembled ready to install servos up to 13mm thick for the flaps and 10 mm for the ailerons. Delivered wing-joiners are a pair of standard carbon with 3.5⁰ and a pair of light hollow with 6⁰.
CAUTION: The wings of electro-powered gliders are not stressed like those of F3J hand/winch towed gliders and thus are not designed nor produced for this kind of flying.
The empennage is hollow-molded using carbon and glass skins and foam cores with carbon spar caps. The removable bolt-on fin/rudder molding is works-installed onto the carbon fuse. The horizontal stab is a one-piece molding bolted to the fuselage.
The fuselage is compatible with 2.4 GHz radio systems. The fuse is pressure-molded of proper Kevlar/Spread Carbon combination with extra carbon reinforcements. The two servos for the tail surfaces are mounted in the canopy bay. The Bowden link is very straight allowing a very precise control with a simple servo installation.
There is plenty of room for a geared motor, ESC and 3s LiPo battery in the canopy compartment with an easy access to the interior of the model.
A variety of different size motors can be fitted into the fuselage, the standard factory installed firewall is ready for the spinner with 35 mm diameter and central bore of 11 mm.
Bigger spinners for larger gearbox/motor combinations can be installed simply by cutting the proper piece of nose (up to 38 mm spinner dia.).
For stronger wind conditions in winds up to 12 m/s, a full carbon version of Electra 2 made of special lightweight Spread Tow Carbon is available on demand.
