Many of us want to fly F5-RES or have fun with a high-performance e-glider for sport flying, but who has time to spend several weeks' worth of evenings putting together a balsa kit? We get it. That's why we set out to do something about that!

The E-Medina is an almost ready to fly (ARF) F5-RES electric glider, and comes with fully pre-built and covered surfaces so you can enjoy flying the model shortly after receiving the package. To complete the model, you need to glue the carbon boom into the nose, glue the tail-mounting carbon pins into pre-drilled holes, mount the servos and run the pull-string wires.

Created by Armsoar in partnership with Performance Models in Australia, the E-Medina uses new airfoils purpose-designed for the flight envelope of modern F3L/F5-RES competition flying. The wingtips are specifically optimized for great tip-stalling characteristics and could handle high variations in angle of attack. The result? A glider that turns tighter and more efficiently than similar designs, perfect for low-level thermal flying

The properly-sized and removable V-tail is designed for control and great low speed handling, crucial during soft thermals and the landing phase. And of course, the V-tail not only looks good, but helps minimize the overall drag of the E-Medina for better L/D in all aspects of the flight envelope.

The fuselage is minimalistic but fits 1806 powertrains perfectly, further minimizing overall drag from the completed model.

I am also running my Medina ARF on the 1507 T-Motor 2700kv from Hyperflight. On a 3s there is more than enough power for my needs. Using the 25mm CN spinner and it's a perfect fit all around.

This plane flies as well as anything I've tried in the F3Res/F3L class.

Medina Electric ARF

This is my first adventure into the F5-RES class. I fly MAXA Pro Electric gliders in competition.
The kit is really great quality and easy to assemble. I had first flights this week. Will need some minor tweaks, but it's going to be a fun glider to fly. Also, Hyperflight is a great outfit to do business with, even though I live in the US.

Medina ARF F5-RES great competitive glider

I enjoy F5-2M-RES contests. Lots of fun, less expensive than F5J, and you can fly a lot more places too. I've built two planes already as kits and wanted to see if an ARF would be built and fly at the same level. The Medina build is great, as good or maybe even better than the YJ and Tetra I built. With 15-20 grms of nose weight to suit your CG preference it is light and flies very well. A light and tiny TMotor 1507 will let you climb quicky at 60 degrees while only drawing 18 amps which is easy on your battery.

Very happy

I was very happy with the build quality of the kit and went together perfectly I would recommend this plane to anyone thinking of getting a F5-RES I also got the ArmSoar 1806 motor and KST servos
