The EPSILON models are one of the most successful glider model ranges
of the last few decades. EPSILON is now available in a variety of sizes
and designs - and now the largest model in the range is getting a new
look. The EPSILON XL3.
Powerful in thermals
The wings have a high-power and high-performance MH-32 profile
specially designed for thermal flight. Due to the low wing load of the
EPSILON XL3, a slow descent is achieved, while the profile guarantees
the necessary power at high speeds.
Gentle landings and easy
The 4m model can be landed gently and precisely in the butterfly
position even in tight spaces thanks to its non-problematic slow flying
characteristics and plain flaps. Furthermore, manual launches can be
easily performed unaided due to the powerful drive.
The fuselage of the EPSILON XL3 consists of red stained fibreglass and
features a stabiliser on the tailplane. The wing, which is covered with
ORACOVER®, has a Styrofoam core and is clad with high-quality
abachi wood, providing a solid and hard surface. Both the fuselage and
the surfaces are reinforced at key points with carbon fibre. The
built-in motor bulkhead and rudder horns are made of aluminium, the
wing torsion bars of high-quality fibre-glass. In addition, the
geometry of the EPSILON XL3 side rudder linkage has been improved.
Little construction effort
Whether in the "naked" ARF version or the almost-ready-to-fly PNP
version - both versions display an extremely high degree of
pre-fabrication, so that little construction effort is required.
Powerful motor (PNP
The PNP version of the EPSILON XL3 has a built-in HIMAX
high-performance motor with a diameter of 42 mm, a length of 60 mm, 570
kV and 950 watts. The scope of supply also includes the enclosed
aluminium spinner and Aeronaut 16 x 8" folding propeller. In addition,
the PNP version has six digital servos with metal gearbox already
installed and wired in the servo frames.
The EPSILON XL3 now has a new, fresh and more up-to-date look. The GRP
fuselage is painted red and the wings covered with an appealing
décor. On the underside of the wings there are high-contrast
block stripes, which enable the pilot to readily detect the orientation
of his or her model.
A lot of glider for a low
Like the other members of this range, the EPSILON XL3 will impress any
glider enthusiast with its price/ performance ratio. Find out more
