The ST Model Arcus M is based on the full size SLMG (Self Launching Motor Glider) of the same name but has been adapted for the needs of a model aircraft.
- Made from durable EPO foam
- Powerful brushless motor
- Large 2.2m wingspan
- Self launching
- Retractable power system
ST Model Arcus Glider
ST has drawn on the knowledge gained in their DG1000 and refined it when designing the Arcus M. The Retractable Power System (RPS) has been improved and the Arcus has the additional features of a retractable main wheel (with doors) and fully operating air brakes/spoilers.
The high aspect ratio wing is highly efficient, and when the motor is tucked away, you can really exploit any thermals that you find just like a sailplane. When it comes to landing, that efficient wing can be a double-edged sword, so popping out the very effective spoilers creates enough drag and lift reduction to put her exactly where you want. Perfect!
In common with all ST aircraft, the Arcus is CAD designed and then carefully moulded in durable EPO foam. Inside is the correct combination of carbon fibre re-enforcing to add strength where required without unnecessary weight.
The powerful brushless motor will pull her skyward at an impressive rate and you only need a 3 cell 1300mAh LiPo to do it!
With the Arcus M, you can enjoy the fun of pure gliding without the need for a launch system.
