The STRATON is our new flagship of our popular Staufenbiel
glider-series, well known for its outstanding price/performance ratio.
The STRATON has an impressive wingspan of 5 meters and a unique
fuselage with 2,25 meters in length. The construction of this glider is
similar to its smaller brothers. The wings are Styrofoam cut, sheeted
with abachi wood and covered with genuine Oracover foil. Several
carbon- and glass-fibre reinforcements are implemented in the wing
construction as well as in the fuselage.
The most important feature of the glider is its airfoil. It changes
from the root to the wingtip. From the root to the middle wing the
airfoil changes from an HQ/W-2,5/12 to a HQ/W-2,5/11. Towards the
wingtips it changes to a HQ/W-3/10,5.
The fuselage comes in two pieces and is glued together from the
modeler. This helps reducing the shipping costs to a minimum.
In the PNP-Version of the STRATON the HIMAX V50-XL motor is already
built-in as well as the six DYMOND D 7550 metal geared servos. A 20x8
CAM folding prop and a high-grade aluminum spinner is also included in
the box. Moreover, you don’t have to worry about the wiring
of the servos, it’s already done using built-in MPX-high
current plugs which are automatically connected by joining the wings to
the fuselage which are held in place with the well-proven MULTILOCK
wing lock system.
We recommend a strong BEC (3A minimum) for the servos.
