Description

The Nan Orion V2 is a medium fast 2.4m span electric glider. The Orion V2 is much loved because of its spirited flying performance. It can be flown fast and zoomed around the sky, but can also be slowed down and thermaled with ease. The two piece wing uses the same wing profile as the Explorer. The Orion is ideal for sport and fun flying both from flat field and slopes. The Orion V2 is aerobatic, easy to fly and an excellent thermal soarer.

This version has a slimmer carbon fuselage and a new molded tailplane and fin. These enhancements make an already great electric glider even better. The very nicely finished two piece wings are hollow molded and have a carbon layup and substantial spar and wing joiner.

The all carbon fuselage will take a 3S or 4S 2Ah LiPo (though we would use smaller capacity). The fuselage has two Bowden cables fitted, with 1.5mm carbon rod inners. The accessory pack includes a 38mm plywood firewall and servo covers.

For the flap and aileron linkages either Integrated Drive Systems will be needed or for conventional control rods:

2 pr Brass M3 4mm Micro Horn
2 pr 40mm M2 Control Rods

See this RCGroups thread and RC-Network thread for more info.

This plane does everything well

I ordered this plane for use as a work plane but found out it will float as well as any of my f5J contest planes and turns on a dime
It is possibly my favorite go to plane above my electric DLG planes
It has everything needed to install my favorite Tomas Lie linkage that is as tight as it gets and stays tight
You canít go wrong with this plane
And donít forget wing covers this thing has swiping tips
I have Been flying it for over 4 years and is still my sweet hart
Thanks Greg

The model is a sports F5J model more robust than the real thing, faster to rig and more convenient for smaller sites larger battery capacity allows for longer sports flight thermal well and is quite aerobatic.
