Plus F5J

The Plus F5J seems to be a radical design, but in fact it is simply a smart design. It incorporates leading edge technology in almost every component. In fact, even in its creation, in collaboration with possibly the world’s top RC Soaring modeler and multi-discipline world champion, Joe Wurts, the Plus F5J is special.

Many of the techniques and materials to build this model only exist at Vladimir's Models.

The wing panels are made in a proprietary molding process in which Vladimir’s own design carbon skins are pressed on to precision-milled Rohacell foam in order to insure bonding and skin hardness as well as finish.

The three-piece wing consists of five panels, a flapped center panel, two main panels and outboard aileron panels.

The multihedral wing form ensures perfect turning and straight tracking with very low pilot management.

The twin tailbooms have flat blades which key over the wing joiners and are invisible once the main wing panels are joined to the center panel. Each have a molded-in, low cost KST servo mount to operate the pull lines to operate each half of the “spring action” A-tails. Each half of the A-tail is molded to a tailboom and no tools are required for assembly. These removable components make shipping, travel and assembly easy. The A-tail ruddervators offer superior aeronautical advantage by providing both roll and yaw with only rudder command input.

The Plus F5J fuselage pod is attached to the center wing panel via two small screws.

The Plus F5J utilizes a small outrunner type motor turning a 12x8 pusher prop.

The flight-tested design has proven that the prop is NOT in the path of the launcher’s body or hand, but the light weight of the entire ship makes a simply-programmed safety feature possible. The plane is launched in Motor Launch Start Position #1, which causes the prop to be barely turning, so there is no chance of any kind of injury from the prop. The Plus F5J will easily glide out and away at which point the pilot initiates Motor Launch Search Switch Position #2. Launch Climb Switch Position #3 allows the pilot to either run or climb for the final amount of his allotted 30-second motor run time.

The Plus F5J will be shipped in a returnable Sportube.
