Avatar electro - Introduction

Avatar electro F3B sailplane


Jitom is proud to present an elektro-fuselage for our AVATAR. The goal was not a "Hotliner" with a phantastic climbing rate. We wanted a model with nearly the same weight and thermal-performance as the glider-version with a comfortable climbing rate like an F5J-model. Fuselage has the same size like glider-version. Servos for V-tail are placed on the bottom side of fuselage in the area of the flaps. To do a comfortable change of lipo-battery in few seconds , we placed a small canopy on the upper side of fuselage. With the recommended gear from "Reisenauer" with a 3-cell lipo (1300mAh) and a 16x8,5 prop you will climb more than 10 m/sec. Weight of model is only 60-80g more than the glider version.

We recommend following components:

Also new flourescent colors are available: green, orange and red.
