Vertigo 2 F5J Light, Neon Yellow/Carbon

The GCM Vertigo 2 is an evolution of the original design. The goals of designing the new model were to increase penetration, increase stability in thermal turns and to make the model more transportable. These goals have largely been achieved. The model features a four piece wing design and six wing servos. There is a slight polyhedral break on the tip panels. The new six servo wing allows for extreme fine tuning of camber settings and aileron throws. As well the middle ailerons can be brought down as flaps for very slow and precise landing approaches. 

The general layout of the nose pod and boom are similar to the original model.  The rear center panel screws secure the boom to the nose and insure precise alignment. Multiplex plugs are used in each center panel half and are "plug and play". A similar "dual tray" arrangement is used in the nose as the previous model.  A battery tray and receiver tray are provided.  The receiver is mounted up and away from the ballast and the ballast stick is mounted to the battery tray. The ballast stick is adjustable to tune your CG with ballast.  

The all new tails feature new airfoils for better penetration and are secured to the boom with just a single screw, simplifying the assembly process. All the flying surfaces are solid core rohacell parts. Post cured in aluminum molds for many hours, this process insures a lasting surface finish and stiffer parts. 

All wing servo bays are completely "boxed" in with carbon. The bays are molded into the parts. The model is supplied with G10 horns and stainless steal linkage for the wing surfaces. IDS can be installed by the customer if they wish, however this will increase the overall weight of the model. 

Due to the increase in complexity of the wing and the addition of a central main joiner flying weights are slightly increased over the previous model. Light models can be expected to fly at 42-44oz, with strong models at 48-50oz.
