Крыло


Многолетняя работа Joe Wurtz по созданию идеальной аэродинамики DLG крыла показала необходимость  применения тонких профилей, особенно в области элерона. Анализ традиционных сэндвичевых и даже цельнозаполненных конструкций показал, что такое крыло будет недостаточно жестким и прочным. Потребовалось абсолютно новое решение.


Нам удалось интегрировать двутавровые карбоновые стенки внутрь сердечника из Rohacell (поз. 3,11). Стенка лонжерона существенно увеличила его жесткость, и предохраняет лонжерон от расслаивания при больших нагрузках на старте. Стенка элерона замыкает контур ( воспринимающий нагрузки кручения) и делает очень тонкий элерон необыкновенно жестким. Сделанный с ЧПУ точностью сердечник из Rohacell и обшивка из тонкой карбоновой ткани Carboline 39 гр/м² обеспечивают малый вес, жесткость, прочность и точность крыла. 


Отличительной чертой Snipe Light является использование сверхлегкой карбоновой ткани Carboline 26 гр/м², что позволило значительно снизить вес крыла. 


Облегченная версия крыла Snipe Light позволит Вам выигрывать в условиях слабого ветра и отсутствия термиков.


Эта идеальная конструкция дополнена удобным и надежным  креплением крыла к хвостовой балке фюзеляжа. Конусные поверхности обеспечивают надежную работу узлов крепления .

Штырь для заброса


Существенным преимуществом Snipe является высокий старт, чрезвычайно легкий для пилота ( не нагружает руку и пальцы при броске) . Штырь для заброса надежно центрует пальцы при быстром перезабросе модели и имеет малое аэродинамическое сопротивление.

Fins


New state-of-the-art airfoils and fin shape are optimized by Joe Wurtz for high launch height and perfect controllability. Apart from geometry and weight the new fins also benefit from increased strength due to utilization of Carboline and Rohacell core.


Upper and lower parts of the fin are symmetrical, which results in considerably lower torque loads on tail boom. Due to asymmetrical fin profile by Joe Wurtz longitudinal oscillations fade away quickly after launch.


Snipe fin is the same for right-handed and left-handed pilots. Just pay attention during the assembly, the fin can be mounted into the slot in the fuselage with both sides, depending on the fuselage type. Yes, we produce two versions of fuselage.


New stabilizer with elevator has significantly increased rigidity of whole control system. The stabilizer is mounted on the pylon beneath the tail boom. This allows to use torsion bar and cable rod, which results in weight reduction and absence of backlash in control system.


The fin and stabilizers are shipped preassembled with rudder and elevators already installed. Horns for cables are included in the kit.






Fuselage snipe_110Вид на кабанчики






Fuselage


Snipe fuselage is a one-piece carbon beam with radio transparent cap made of kevlar and built-in wing mounting rings.


Snipe beam is made of high-modulus carbon strengthened with two layers ofCarboline ±45° that take torsional and impact loads. The beam is notable for its increased strength, required for high launches and durability for rough landings.


The wing is attached to two rings that belt around the fuselage beam. Conical mounting surfaces define wing position explicitly and are good at transferring the load to the fuselage.


Карбоновый пилон крыла полностью скрывает кабанчики,тяги и кольца крепления крыла. Благодаря этому уменьшается аэродинамическое сопротивление фюзеляжа. 


Wing fillet cross section is not circle-shaped in the place where the wing is joined with the cap. Now you can hold your plane by the cap not being afraid that a sudden puff will twist the plane. The pylon can comfortably accommodate receiver or battery depending on the centering you choose.


Stabilizer pylon made of carbon is glued under the tail boom. Elevator horn is elegantly hidden in the pylon slot. There is a groove inside the pylon for the elevator cable.


Snipe fuselage is shipped pre-assembled with cables already drawn. You just have to attach the fins, install servos and wing pushrods.






Please, pay attention, we produce two versions of Snipe fuselage. There are versions with fin slots for right-handed and left-handed pilots.

Ballast install1


Snipe pull spring_system_2Snipe pull spring_system_4






Ballast Installation


Ballast installation, mounting and position adjustment are well thought-out. Inside the beam under the receiver there is a special part weighting just 0.02 oz that fixes the ballast inside the beam. There is a rib inside the tail boom to hold the cables closer to the upper part of the fuselage. 


Easy Assembling Procedure


 


Cabling with torsion bar is one of key advantages of Snipe. Due to this system the plane is more lightweight and backlashes are minimal. As a result the behaviour of the model in the sky is more confident, control of the fins is as effective as it could ever be, and all this provides you more positive flight experience.


The model is shipped with all cables preinstalled. All you need is to hook up the rudder and elevators to the control cables.


When the cap is removed you have an easy access to all on-board hardware. Due to this design it is very easy to install the hardware when assembling the model.


Location of all the servos inside the fuselage helps to perfectly balance the plane and allows to attain higher rigidity and minimal backlashes of the aileron control system even compared to the RDS technology.

Details

Using his knowledge of aerodynamics and due to many years of sport experience the multiple World Champion Joe Wurtz created a unique glider, which has the advantages in all phases of flight: very easy and high start, quick climbing in thermals, extremely low sink rate in dead air, as well as perfect penetrating.

Careful analysis of all glider elements functioning and the two-year improving of flight performance and construction of absolutely all parts of the model have led to great success already in the first competition — F3K World Championship 2013 in Denmark.
