Ripmax Bolero 3D ARTF EP/GP
Click here to see a slideshow.
The Bolero is a high performance funfly aircraft with huge control surfaces for 3D flight. The Bolero was developed by Alan Wood, the pilot behind the J!VE and was made with the aim of providing the next generation of funfly 3D aircraft building on the attributes that have made previous Ripmax funfly aircraft such as the Bossanova so popular.
Designed in CAD, then produced on jigs with laser cut parts and then covered in high quality iron-on film the Bolero oozes quality. All areas of the design and construction have been studied and optimised for performance and durability.
The wings are fully symmetrical and feature a thick custom aerofoil to improve flight characteristics on windy days and a predictable response during slow speed. The aluminium spar is tough and lightweight allowing easy wing attachment via a large fuselage hatch, this allows the Bolero be assembled at the field without tools. The fuselage is long to increase pitch stability and thin to helping the Bolero track straight and true. The tailplanes are an open structure to reduce weight and the control surfaces themselves are huge and capable of large throws. The undercarriage is formed from sturdy aluminium to cater for everyday use on grass fields.
The power system is easy to install and access for maintenance in wither I/C or electric power format. Just purchase the correct kit (A-ARTF6720/ICP or A-ARTF6720/ELP) for your choice of system. We recommend the QuantumII 55 motor, Quantum 80A ESC and a 5S1P Li-Po to really pack a punch if you choose electric power, or a .55 2-Stroke if you prefer an engine. The radio installation is just as simple, all servos are easy to access and there is lots of room for your choice of receiver and battery. High power servos such as Quartz QZ507 (P-QZ507) with a 6V battery are recommended for a balance of torque and speed.
The Bolero features side force generators or SFG's as they are commonly known. SFG's increase the side area of the airframe giving excellent authority in knife edge aerobatic manoeuvres allowing the Bolero to knife edge loop and much more. The side force generators simply slot in to each wing tip and are removable with one screw. They are brilliant at improving 3D flight but if you decide they aren't for you then we even include some film to cover the hole up!
The Bolero can be wild in the right hands but that shouldn't scare any novice aerobatic pilots away. Simply reduce the control movements down and the Bolero is docile enough to learn aerobatics and make a great first mid-wing model. The Bolero is predictable, smooth and extremely capable with the ability to progress with you as you become a 3D pro!

Ripmax WOT Trainer EP/GP ARTF

The popular Chris Foss Wot Trainer has been updated to suit both Electric and I/C power. The addition of a cowling makes for a clean look and improved aerodynamics while still providing ample cooling.
As with the previous version of the Wot Trainer, it requires no glue for assembly and features a choice of tail dragger or trike undercarriage. The tapered wing provides exceptional stability, perfect for the novice pilot, but with maximum control movements and increased power, it is capable of more aerobatics than you would normally expect from this type of model.

The new Wots Wot biplane is the latest model in the growing range of Chris Foss designed ARTF aircraft, and has (by general agreement) the best flying characteristics of them all! With its sleek aerodynamic design and relatively large wing area the Wots Wot has incredible low speed handling, being able to fly at amazingly slow flying speeds, yet open the throttle and the aerobatic performance and precision is truly outstanding! Suitable for I/C use with .70 to .81 four stroke engines or electric power with suitable motor and 5 cell battery pack, the Wots Wot is compact enough to fit into most cars in one piece, even hatchbacks, however the model has been optimised for rapid assembly/disassembly, requiring only 6 screws tightening and 2 clevises connected.
The model is supplied as an airframe only, with separate I/C and electric power option fitting packs available seperately.
The I/C pack contains an engine mount, fuel tank, spinner and throttle linkage, the electric pack has motor mount, battery mounting tray with 2 battery straps, magnetically attached hatch cover and mounting frame and spinner with alloy backplate. Flight times of over 12 minutes of mixed flying were achieved during test flying of the prototype models using a 5S 4500mAh battery pack!
