The Adventure Travel F5J is a new high performance 3m (118") electric glider designed for very easy transport without compromising any flying performance or good handling qualities. The Adventure Travel F5J is of all molded spread carbon construction and is made to a high standard, with an excellent surface finish and a low weight. The model fits in a specially designed strong cardboard box size 780 x 330 x85 mm (30.7" x 13.0" x 3.3") meaning that it can be carried onto most transport.

The fuselage pod is a good size, allowing easy powertrain and RC installation. It is made from kevlar with carbon reinforcement, and is meant to be 2.4 GHz friendly, though we would recommend at least one antenna is routed outside. The tailboom is a lightweight component custom molded from chequerboard spread carbon with the V tail mounts ready fitted. The tailboom is securely retained using tape, to allow easy assembly on the field. No glue is needed or should be used.

The V tails are beautifully molded from spread carbon over a Rohacell foam core, for maximum lightness and rigidity. The V tails have a pocket for the servo (8 mm max thickness) molded in place.

The four part wing is again beautifully molded from spread carbon over a Rohacell foam core, with carbon servo pockets molded into the structure. With a thickness of just 6.3% the airfoil is very thin and quite cambered, giving excellent performance. The flap is exceptionally wide, taking up 40% of the wing's chord, allowing both a good speed range and for the model to be slowed very well when landing.

The accessory pack contains glass fibre horns and firewall, multiplex plugs and lightweight wire for a wiring harness - though it might be easier to use our Large Lightweight 4 Servo Wing Wiring Harness ready made wing wiring harness and some extension leads.

Nice model

This is a great model, and I'd give it five stars save for the fact that (a) the build instructions are not good, basically a 'work it out yourself', which is OK as it's pretty easy, but a little more guidance would have been good; (b) I spent a lot on a really light geared motor but the balance was pretty way off, despite using super light tail servos and lightweight wiring, I had to add 60g of lead to the nose to balance it out with a 1000mA 3S battery; (c) the kit is made in Russia so I'd guess they will struggle to survive the collapse in business and anyway spares will be impossible I'd imagine. That said it does fly beautifully and goes up on light thermals nicely. It's very benign in its flying characteristics and climbs steeply even under half power, it also has good penetration for when the wind gets up a bit. Lastly despite the added weight it flies at 960g, which is pretty good. It's great for travelling as well. I used the Powerline Micro motor and YGE ESC. Service from Hyper flight excellent.

Pay attention to the weight of the tail

KST X06H was used for the tail servo. I made it as specified using the Harness included in the kit, but it became a little tail heavy. It's a shame that this result was achieved despite the fact that the motor uses the Powerline Micro 1025/10, which weighs 102g. As a result, I couldn't use the planned 1000mA / h, so I changed the battery to 1500mA / h and installed a Futaba current and altitude sensor near the nose. The flight weight has increased to 1150g, but the performance is excellent and the brakes with huge flaps are powerful and have no habit. The flight performance is not significantly defeated by rivals. The appeal of this aircraft is that it can be stored compactly and that it has high fighting power despite its reasonable size.

Flight report for the Travel Adventure....Finally finished the ship last month...On the first flight everything was spot on...Incredible hang time and goes up in the lightest of thermals....It goes up well at 1/3 to 1/2 throttle with a direct drive motor spinning a 10X6 propeller on a 3 cell 1300mah lipo...Michelle, my girlfriend, flies it well...It's her Birthday present!!

Excellent High Performance go anywhere F5J

I have one of these straight from the factory in St Petersburg. Excellent performance. With all up weight at just over 1,000g. Easy set up and packs down into a archery backpack to yomp wherever you want to fly. Gives you a competitive F5J machine and a go anywhere sport machine in one. I love it.
