    ELF wing D boxELF wing central part

    Wing

    Axial loads are taken by carbon fiber spar, torsion loads are taken by D-shaped contour of front part of the wing. This contour is formed by carbon fiber pressure pad, enforced by rib and spar web.

    Carbon fiber pressure pad is latest development by Vladimir's Model, obtained by forming in rigid mold. Its main benefit is that it helps to preserve wing's aerodynamic profile in most critical places: near the leading edge and at wing tips. That leads to considerable reduction of induced drag.

    Carbon fiber center section turns to be a complex and attractive design element that joins spars, ribs and wing mounting screws. Besides, it hides receiver inside.

    Rear part of the wing consists of balsa ribs reinforced by carbon fiber stripes and carbon fiber trailing edge. Wing is covered by Oralight film.

    Fuselage

    For the first time in our design evolution the joint of tail boom with nose is omitted; that design boasts reduced weight and higher strength. It's the beam that carries the load of impact with the ground, not the cover.

    Shread-RC Li-Ion battery is specially designed for RC airplane models and is very convenient to handle. It can be charged by any DC source ranging from 5 to 15 V without any special adapters (for instance, it can be charged from your laptop's USB port or from your mobile phone charger).

    More than that, Shread-RC will inform you with sound alarm about the charge left.

     

    Easy assembly procedure

     When the nose cover is removed one can get access to all on-board equipment. That's very convenient. With design like this, one can easy install devices when assembling the model.

    Location of the equipment helps to precisely balance model with respect to its center of gravity.

    You won't need any additional balances when assembling the model according to the manual.

    Fins

    Very lightweight fin at thoroughly calculated shoulder provides airplane with unique control in thermals and at conventional gliding. Stabilizer average weigh is just 0.116 oz, and one of a rudder – 0.099 oz.

    V-mount is a tiny but very complex part made of high strength polymer with just 0.011 oz of weight. The item consists of two parts joined with carbon-fiber axis. This allows to easily remove the stabilizer. The shape of a V-mount is a design marvel. The ends of a rod is fixed in the stabilizer's rocker in a full range of stabilizer's positions. To remove the rod one has to remove the stabilizer first.

    ELF is a new generation of hand-launched planes with 1m wing-span by Vladimir's Model. Amazingly small size of the model gives the pilot access to places he never dared to fly before (car parking, beaches, etc.)

    ELF is a radio-controlled plane for everyone. Due to unparalleled controllability it can be easily controlled even by a novice.

    ELF is a an example of state-of-the-art design process

    ELF's unique design, advanced technology, hand assembly stand behind simple elegant exterior, gentle in-flight behavior and low price.

    Computer modeling of ELF allowed us to predict position of center of gravity with high precision. That means you don't need to put any additional weights to balance the plane any more. That also means the plane has minimal weight and maximum strength.

    Add the unmatched aerodynamic performance calculated by Dr. Drela, and we get incredibly controlled, fast, lightweight, and durable plane.
