The EP glider Q12x is the super-lightweight version of our Q12. The pod is made of kevlar-Carbon fabric. The cross-section is very small, the weight is low.
The pod can accept battery ca. 1200-2S.
The tail servos are under the wing. Due the size of the pod, the low-profile servos Dymond D47 must be used.
The RTF weight is from 500 grams only.
The Q12 takes use from our long-years experience with DLG models. The gliders, made with the foam/skin technology, flew much better, than those stick and film types. The main reason was seemingly the overall improvement of aerodynamic properties.
The foam/skin design provides much higher rigidity. The A/R can be very high. The ailerons and brakes will not warp. The A/R is about same as that of free flight power models.
Each half of the wing is made as single part. The dihedral is built in during the molding process.
Except for the pod, all other parts are similar to the Q12.
The rear fuselage part consists of carbon/glass boom. It provides rather long tail arm for better flight stability.
The tail feathers are made in similar method as the wings. They are very lightweight.
The CG is in correct position even with the very lightweight power unit components.
The on-board RC system is normally supplied from the ESC's BEC. If the current demands of your system is higher, you can use VR-3 voltage controller. It is supplied from the battery ballance connector. We have never had any problems with this power supply type.
