This Ventus 2cx is the latest open class
(18 m) from Shemp-Hirth. It superseded the Discus with this new planform and tip
poly break. This new poly wing lead to better handling in thermals.
With a span of 4.3 m this 1:4 scale Ventus
2cxM is one of our finest Super Scale gliders. This is the self launchable version (M). The cockpit comes completely finished,
upholstered seats, and many scale details such as instrument
mushrooms complete with instruments. The
canopy is finished, fitted and painted. All that remains for the builder to do is add a scale pilot for
The kit is
available with sheeted and covered wings. All control surfaces pre-cut and
hinged ready to hook up controls. It
features a modified RG15 airfoil which gives this fine model a smooth and versatile
flying characteristics. This model
is comfortable on a slope and can be winch launched, but is at it’s best when
aero-towed or with a self launch system. The neat wing planform gives
it exceptional thermalling
performance and the wings are very strong to withstand
some strong aerobatics. Like its
full-scale counterpart, the poly brake wing plan with winglets form looks
especially graceful and unique in the air and gives a very smooth handling.
With the level of
completion of this glider, only a few hours of work are required before it will
be ready to take to the air. The
wings and control surfaces are Oracover covered completely finished. Airbrakes
are installed and ready to be connected to your servos. Functional
retract is installed in the high gloss, gel coated fiberglass
fuselage. Ruder and Elevator a hollow
moulded. All servos wires are installed. A small package of
hardware and building instructions complete the kit.
Radio requirements are four micro servos for the
ailerons and flaps, two mini servos for the airbrakes, two sub-micro servos for the winglet
ailerons and four regular servos for the
elevator, rudder, retract, and tow release.
This is the Ventus 2cxM (4.3 m)
super scale ARF kit, that comes with a foldable self launch system installed and ready to operate. The unit is rated 850W and works on 5cells LiPo (not included).
A worm gear mechanism controlled by a servo and separate 2S LiPo battery moves the system in and out. Since the motor remains in the same position, there is no CG change between closed and open position, so no change in flight attitude besides the thrust of of the motor to compensate. The landing gear is a special design with rised wheel to increase ground clearance and avoid nose tipping at take off. We recommend the use of a very smooth runway to take off. If grass is too tall a dolly may be suitable. The unit requires a 80A speed controller and a 5S LiPo battery to be fully operational.
Also available as a divided 4 piece wing kit, if transport space is limited.
