First batch has arrived!
New for 2016 team Vortex introduces a brand new F5J glider: the ULTIMA. The Ultima is the "next step" in F5J evolution. Solid core machined wing cores just like the most modern F3K machines. This resulted in a flying weight from 1063 gram with a 4m wingspan. The model is delivered with both 5 and 7 degree wing joiners.
We have several models ordered, but only a few have not been spoken for at this time. Please emails us if you would like to reserve a model.
