Ventus

The idea behind the project was to create a semi-scale version of this famous performing glider, balancing the flying feeling of a glider of such dimensions but having at the same time a model capable to guarantee good performance in both weak wind and thermal conditions.

Wings are fully glass molded with a sophisticated longitudinal spar laminated with a mixed structure of plywood, fiberglass and carbon. The chosen airfoil is a modified Eppler profile able to offer maximum efficiency in a wide range of speed. Room for airbrakes is already present on wings (airbrakes not included in the kit).

Fuselage, rudder and elevator are also fully glass molded and carbon reinforcements are placed in order to adequately deal with any kind of strains coming from aerodynamic forces.
