Fidelity-E 2M is 85% RTF - Ultra Light Weight Thermal electro-glider.
The latest technology and development of small, light weight, powerful brushless motors like the ART-500 and other light weight drive components made possible to create this super light weight electro-glider.
The Fidelity-E flying weight is approx. 460 grams (~16.2 oz.) It features the OP0830 airfoil that was specially modified for this sailplane, the benefits of that are:
- superior thermal abilities
- very low stall speed
- wide range of speed
- good air penetration
- composite fuselage pod is made of a few layers of light fiber glass with glass roving and carbon fiber reinforcements for extra strength. It has removable canopy for rapid access to the radio gear. The V-shaped wing saddle with molded in nuts for the wing mounting screws.
- tapered tail boom made of carbon fiber/glass composite.
- wing cores are precision cut from white polystyrene foam, covered with thin black poplar veneer bonded to the foam with aircraft industry grade epoxy in high pressure molds for perfect airfoil fidelity and a warp-free wing.
V-tail made from balsa has pre-hinged control surfaces.
