The MicroMax Pocket F3F is a great new fast slope soarer capable of extreme fun flying. The concept was inspired by Henning Plemo Schmidt, and with aero design by Christophe Bourdon. Structural design and implementation is by Anton Ovcharenko so this model is of the highest pedigree. Its inspiration was the lack of high performance small gliders optimised for fast slope flying.

Although discus launched gliders can be fun on the slope on a low wind day they are too stable and too light to be optimal, especially when the wind gets up. Anton makes the very high performance Strike range of 1m DLGs, and was the first manufacturer to make a full house 1m DLG with performance to challenge 1.5m ships. Christophe's job was to marry Anton's highly regarded DLG technology with the performance requirements of a great slope soarer - high L/D at speed, well damped and linear control response even at extreme DS speeds, while retaining nice handling and low min sink to allow scratching when the lift dies.

The MicroMax is ultra-new so there isn't much real-world feedback yet, but by all accounts Henning, Christophe and Anton have pulled off the impossible and made a small model that achieves this and flies like a much larger thoroughbred slope racer. MICRO size with MAXimum performance and fun.

The MicroMax has flying surfaces beautifully made from spread carbon with a solid Rohacel core, to ensure its excellent surface finish doesn’t degrade with time. The fuselage is carbon fibre with a 2.4Ghz transparent glass nose section, to allow the receiver aerials to be kept internal. The fuse is tiny but has been designed to accept a custom ballast system, allowing the model's weight to be doubled. This very wide weight range allows the model to be used in most flying conditions, from light airs to strong conditions. For good DS performance we recommend the model is ballasted to at least 400g, preferably 500g to allow it to punch through the rotor turbulence. The wing is easily strong enough to cope with DS speeds at this weight.
