USED Center Panel-Vertigo F5J Light, Solid Core Center Panel

Neon Pink/Carbon

This model is a mix of brand new parts and a lightly used center panel and nose pod (used by me last contest season). The tip panels are brand new never used. The tails are brand new never used, the boom is brand new and never used.

Center panel is solid core and has Blue Bird M15 hall sensor servos installed in third bearing frames. The linkage is not IDS but is still hidden under the surface. Very clean install. No scratches or dings, no damage at all. The ends of the Center panel have Deans 3 pin connectors installed and I will supply male Deans 3 pin connectors for the Tip panels.

The Tip panels are brand new, no servos or linkage installed. New condition. They come with servo covers, control horns and linkage. You will have to install servos and horns etc...

The Rudder and Elevator are brand new. You will have to install horns. The control horns are supplied.

The Boom is brand new and you will have to install servos and hook up pushrods.

The nose pod is used and in great condition with no damage. It has Rx tray and battery tray installed. CNC motor mount for reisenauer gearbox. Wire harness for wing and boom is installed. I will supply a Deans 4 pin connector for the boom.

Includes wing and tail covers.

Includes 7 degree and 5 degree wing joiners.

Includes all hardware, horns, misc parts to build out tips, tail, and boom.

Two ballast sticks are included, a 3 oz and 5 oz.

This should build out to 40.5-42 oz depending on your setup.

Does not include receiver or altis.


The GCM Vertigo is the pinnacle of F5J design.  Several years in development this model has been extensively prototyped and tested in Europe and the USA. The airfoil is a modified SynergJ section and features a hybrid of the latest construction techniques. Several iterations of wings, tails, and fuselages were designed prototyped and tested before the final version was put into production. 

The solid core wing tips and tail are very stiff and lightweight reducing mass where it is most important. The Center panel is also solid core. It has a light weight rohacell main panel and harder rohacell flaps for added durability.
