Please note, large scale sailplanes must be special ordered.
The Ventus 2c by the Schempp-Hirth company is a racing class sailplane designed and manufactured in accordance with the most recent research in the field. The Ventus-2 range of sailplanes is one of the most successful model ranges to emerge over the last decade. The 2cx version features all well proven high performances along with a new design. The version with the "a-fuselage" is a well known option by Schempp-Hirth airplanes and continues to be the first choice of engaged competition pilots of the 18m class.
Some of the dimensions on our VENTUS 2cxa have been slightly altered from true scale in order to ensure superb flying performance and handling. Just like the original sailplane, the model features ailerons and camber-changing flaps. The movements of the ailerons and camber-changing flaps are 100% superimposed, making the model highly maneuverable. By deploying correctly the flaps full-span, the VENTUS 2cxa covers an exceptionally broad speed range.
Our VENTUS 2cxa is delivered almost Ready to Fly - that means you have no building left to do, simply install your radio gear and enjoy the flight. Many of the "custom" details like the tow release in the nose, the retractable landing gear with working doors, tail wheel, and the canopy with scale-like hatch latches have already been pre-finished for you. The full cockpit with instrument panels could be factory installed if purchased as an optional.
The 6 piece wing with detachable winglets makes your model - despite its size - very easy transportable. You need to install up to 4 servos in each composite wing. The wing as well as the fuselage has pre-installed wiring harnesses that also include multi-pin connectors for fast and trouble-free setup. The elevator servo cleanly fits inside the vertical fin in its own fiberglass tray. The hollow molded rudder and stabilizer are already pre-hinged with linkages installed. Designed with the intermediate pilot needs in mind, the Ventus 2cxa is a joy to fly - it thermals well and is fun on the slopes, it lands in remarkably small areas due to generous flaps and spoilers.

The very popular FES* system is an optional by our VENTUS 2cxa. Comparing to “Up and Go” systems, the FES offers a reduced aerodynamic drag that requires much less power for the same performance. Simplified with only a few moving parts and therefore a lighter system - compared with the retractable solution - the sailplane retains its aerodynamics during engine operation without shifts to the centre of gravity. The installed landing gear allows take offs even from grass runways.
* FES is an efficient and innovative Front Electric Self launch / Sustainer propulsion system for powered sailplanes, developed and produced by LZ design, Slovenia
