High perfomance F3J competition glider. First in the Xplorer series available in X-tail or 2 piece V-tail fuselage version and 3 different wingspan options. Came to the scene in 2008 with the aim to cover whole spectre of weather conditions.

In this case, do not hesitate to ask me to add it : You're not bothering me. Please be patient, depending on my workload, I may take a few days to work on your model and gather information.

I'm sometime asked to add a non flying model to this library but unfortunately, it's not the focus of this website
