Marabu V ARF
Topmodel CZ Marabu V – 2750mm glider
Lightweight, high-performance electric glider with V-tail controlled in all axes. Marabu has two-pieces balsa built-in wing with MH32 airfoil. The wing is fixed to the fuselage with two screws. The wing and butterfly tail are both easily removable and storable for better transportation to the airport.
Fibreglass fuselage is reinforced with carbon fiber, nose of the fuselage is cut off and ready to glue the motor mount and install Ø 38 mm motor with Ø 40 mm spinner and folding propeller. Good penetration and used airfoil classify the Marabu for recreational and competitive thermal flying. Thanks to large area length the model has calm and steady gliding.
Using the effective flaps can be achieved very comfortable flying in thermals. Also landing due to high brake efficiency (when using the butterfly) is very comfortable.
The wing spars and leading edge made from carbon gives the wing enough strength and stiffness.The wing joiner is aluminum tube filled with carbon. The tail surfaces have the main spar and the leading edge made of carbon and the servo control is placed below the wing.
Marabu will love not only fans of competition flying, but all pilots who enjoy comfortable flying in thermals or in the late afternoon calm. Really excellent flight characteristics will inspire you and you will look forward to every next flying.
