    PLUS is the F5J without any compromises.

    PLUS Wing

     

    Airfoils and wing planform were optimized according to Reynolds numbers for the best thermaling and best wind penetration of an ultralight model.

    The wing consists of 3 panels: Center with one flap, then large wing tip with flapperon and aileron on both sides. All 5 servos provide airfoil changing. Flap and flapperons servos assist in air braking, flapperon and aileron servos work like ailerons.
    The Multi-hedral form insures perfect turning and straight tracking with very low pilot management.

     Full Rohacell core wing has integrating carbon shear webs and ultrahigh module carbon spar. Such unique wing construction provides unique durability and rigidity of the PLUS wing.

    Milled pockets for servo is intended for IDS foam frame. We can install IDS system for your PLUS wing. You need to make a choice of the servos only. For flap and flapperons we recommend MKS 6110 or KST X08H (for light wind conditions only). For ailerons we recommend KST X08H.

    Please additionally fix the servos to the bottom wing surface by carbon servo pocket strengthening.

    Wing wire channel is completely ready in the core. We have installed all wires and connectors in the wing already. 

    Milled pockets in the wing tip for the elevator servo is designed for KST X08 or MKS DS75K servos.

    The receiver is placed in the wing in a milled pocket due to all seven servos are also located in the wing. Fix the antennae with adhesive tape in the slotplaces in the fuselage.

    PLUS Wing joiner

     

    We use high temperature and high pressure for unique technology of light PLUS wing joiner with prepreg of high strength carbon and with Rohacell core. PLUS wing joiner is the most critical point of construction that is why we have paid too much attention to it.

    PLUS tail boom is securely fixed in the wing joiner holes and on the central panel rings.

    plus f5j tail boom

    PLUS Tail booms

     

    We make light PLUS tail boom with Carboline multilayer prepregunder high pressure and high temperature.

     

    Tail booms are fully ready.  You only need to screw the servo and install the elevator control cable. First fix the cable on the servo horn, and then fix the length of the cable (wire) to the elevator horn.

    PLUS pod

     

    PLUS pod is laminated with the unique multilayer Carboline preform making it so light and strong.

    PLUS pod has snap fixed canopy. This canopy is the same as for the Supra PRO, AVA PRO, Sprite models.

    The motor is located in the nose part to ensure the correct position of the gravity center without additional ballast.

    The motor shaft has an additional intermediate bearing to prevent possible bending of the shaft at high motor rotation. Motor shaft with two bearings, spinner and motor fitting is 22 g only.

    The shaft guard serves to fix the ballast.

    Ballast PLUS weighting up to 550 g is quickly fixed and removed. It is possible to easily adjust the ballast to the required center of gravity.

    You can order the motor shaft with the spinner. Also we can install the shaft and glue the motor plate. We use jigs for equipment installation, thus it is extremely accurate.

    PLUS Stabilizers

     

    PLUS stabilizer has full core construction with Carboline SC covering, integrated carbon shear webs and carbon spar caps.

    You must tape stabilizer to the boom beforethe flight.

    PLUS is the F5J without any compromises.

    PLUS is the newest 2017 unique project of Joe Wurts + Vladimir’s Model expressly for F5J competition.

    Airfoils and wing planform were optimized according to Reynolds numbers for the best thermaling and wind penetration of an ultralight model.

    Joe’s Wurts airfoils allow you to use flaps in a wide range from -2 to +7 degrees for maximum climb performancein thermals and minimized decline rate in float condition or speedy upwind flight. 

    The absence of the propeller in the nose is the main Plus advantage. It is greatly reduces the overall drag of the model and not only improves the wind penetration, but also improves climbing in the thermals. Probably, all the pilots noticed a significant deterioration in the flight characteristics of the electric plane in comparison with the glider (without a propeller in the nose).

    Unique fittings of the tail boom to both the wing and the stabilizer provide not only light weight and high strength, but also the simplicity of the airframe assembly. In addition it has only two screws for fixing the wing to the pod.

    The great advantage of opposite V-tail is the right direction of the rudder moment reaction.

    There fore PLUS rudder is more efficient. Beside, stabilizers are easy to fix to the tail boom and to each other by adhesive tape. Very light pool/spring elevator control system is very light and rigid enough.

     

    PLUS F5J has very unique advantages:

    + best thermaling performance;

    + unique wind penetration performance;

    + low drag without prop spinner and blades in the nose;

    + right direction of rudder moment reaction of opposite V-tail;

    + very easy handling;

    + ultralight weight;

    + compact size for transportation.
