X-Models Stingray Aerobatic Glider

Tired of Fox’s and Swift’s, try the new Stingray.

Despite the weight the heavy version can be thermalled and gains height very easily. The HS version was produced because many modellers fly with the model ballasted all the time no matter what the conditions are.

The speed of the Stingray is just as unbelievable as the precision with which the model can do aerobatics in the sky.

Owing to large curving flaps and ailerons the Stingray can fly amazingly slowly using the Butterfly setup, this also enables it to be landed with great precision.

As a result of the large surface wing area and profile, standard servos can be used.
The servo for the all moving stabiliser is mounted the servo in the back in the fuselage.
The rudder is linked by a closed loop and so the servo sits in the front in the fuselage.

The kit consists of:

Carbon strengthened GRP high gloss fuselage in the basic colour
16mm round steel bar as wing joiner
GRP canopy framework in basic colour and Transparent cover
GRP rudder in basic colour
GRP/CCFK flying stabilizer with 6 mm and 3 mm steel rods as links.
Brass bush with bearings for stabiliser

Extras:

Servo set 1: Elevator, rudder, flaps: 4 x S3050 digital
Ailerons: 2 x HS225 mg
  or
Servo set 2: Ailerons, flaps, elevator: 5 x Futaba BLS451 brushless/digital
Rudder: Futaba S 3050 digital

Fantastic semi-scale looks with unbelievable energy retention and maneuverability. Be one of the first to get your hands on a rare breed of glider!

This project comes directly from Beppe Ghisleri, the best Italian designer for gliders, in our opinion. He gave us the whole original design (no HQ in wings, of course, for people who like to fly extreme aerobatics, not boring thermal flights).

Quote from X-Models:-
"The StingRay is the ultimate aerobatic machine from Xmodels. The best aerobatic glider we have ever made, for sure. WE LOVE IT!"
