Description

The Fresh F3-RES is a highly regarded F3-RES model that flies excellently and builds comparatively quickly. The big benefits of this model are its carbon tubular spars and carbon tailboom for lighter weight, and lower fuselage drag.

The design is simple, functional and robust. The model combines a very good glide angle with excellent thermal performance and good-natured handling. Although the Fresh was designed to win F3-RES competitions it also makes an excellent sport model. The model comes with two fuselage front formers, alowing it to be built as a pure glder or an electric glider. The electric version is designed for 30 mm spinners and the max internal motor diameter is about 25 mm.

Like all the F3-RES models we sell this is a very complete builder's kit made from top quality hand selected balsa, ply and carbon fibre tubes. The kit includes all wood, all small parts, and an excellent full scale plan.

See this German rc-network thread for more info. The English manual can be downloaded using the link below the More details heading.

Also please look a CJ Scott's excellent series of videos on his YouTube channel.

I have spent 2/3 months slowly putting this kit together. Quality was excellent with all parts fitting perfectly. End result gives me immense satisfaction. I have had to wait a few weeks for suitable weather but the Fresh flies beautifully with long gentle glides just as I had hoped. I have also had a couple of bad landings that left not a mark on her. Fills me with confidence just how strong the construction is. Will certainly be buying from Hyperflight again .

Great kit

This kit build easily and precisely, and it flies the same. I have already ordered a second Fresh 2M to build it with electric power. I don't use the term "precisely" lightly... when I built the two outer wing sections, the dihedral was accurate to 1/100th of a degree left vs right. The flight characteristics are excellent. I set my CG at 68-69mm from the leading edge. I only needed to add a small amount of weight to get balance and the Fresh weighed in at 442.9 grams ready to fly. This is my favorite RES glider!

Top Quality

Neil's service is exceptional. Dispatched on the order day and arrived on the following. the kit is really well designed and there is sufficient help online to support a novice builder like me. still putting it together but I can already feel the temptation to speed up and get out. fighting that....

Fresh F3-RES

Very good quality kit, with full size plan and no manual, however, online help is available. Previous building experience is required (in my opinion) as some of the parts need careful handling. I put mine together in 10 days. As usual, the service from Hyperflight was excellent!.

The fresh is a straight forward build, the CnC cutting accurate, the plans a little over size. A very well natured plane in light winds , gets thrown around with a bit of wind.... I'm still playing with c.o.g. And have yet to see how it flies with a bit of extra weight on board.
Mine is flying at 510g motor(+spinner 32g) & 550mAh 3s, used Neil's cf & unstretched etched tubing instead of the supplied spring pull.
I put it together with SuperPhatic glue probably alot more than was needed in hindsight (never used it before, would definitely use it again) . Neil's service is fantastic and fast , unfortunately my kit had a few bits missing...... And Germany was too slow coming up with the parts for my liking...
I'm looking forward to getting to know this plane more, and am interested to see if it can knock my Callistic off its favourite in light's winds perch.

Test flown at last

Finally calm weather, daylight and time off work co-incided to allow a test flight. The Fresh is a superb model. Very smooth, ultra efficient, responsive well balanced controls and flies very neutral. The model also looks much nicer in the air than in photos. 30 mins flying from a 3S 370 lipo today with no thermal activity.

Build is very rewarding, nothing difficult, but care and a little thought is required in some stages. Best advice is to buy the recommended motor. I shoe horned a larger diameter motor in and it was hard work. The ADH motor would have been a much better choice. AUW on mine is 515 grams. A smaller lipo and a few tweaks could easily see it under 500 grams... Highly recommended model, for those with some building experience.

F3 RES Fresh

Excellent kit, every part fitted perfectly. An English version of the instructions is available on line. It takes some time to read them and figure out the various building steps. I user 2 other web sites which provided a building log for the Fresh. They are as follows (you can use Chrome/google translation on the first site) :

This was a great build and this is the best flying glider I have ever built!

FRESH

I was one of the lucky one to get this kit!
by chance I was looking at build threads for the x res
on saw, IN STOCK on the fresh ,and pulled the trigger
another wonderful kit from Hyperflight, less then a week
and it came, every thing was in order, I loved working with a full sized plan , clean balsa ,all needed hardware, the spring loaded rudder and elevator was
alittle strange to me, but turned out easy to install and
works fine, weight came out to 445gms.,geat service
thank you hyperflight
