The Samba RES 2 is a new, lighter version of the very well liked Samba RES 2m F3-RES high-start launched glider. Like the previous model it is beautifully cut from the best quality balsa and ply, however this version can be built to a weight of approx 455 g, giving a lower wing loading an even better duration and light lift capabilities.

The fuselage uses a nicely shaped balsa pod with a carbon tube boom to minimise weight and wetted area. The wing has a fully Dbox sheeted wing to keep the low laminar and minimise drag.

The Samba RES 2 comes with all hardware and a superb full size plan and build manual (in German). Due to the clear photos and well thought out design the model can be easily assembled by any modeller with a little experience.

The photos and plans on this page show the original Samba RES model, we will update it with new info as it becomes available.

Samba Res 2

Although not started building yet I am very pleased with the quality of the parts I have inspected which come completely cut out and bagged up. I chose the Samba 2 over the Evo Because of the strength of the D box wing and have been pleasantly supprised that many of the design features of the Evo seem to have been used in the Samba 2, Tail, Airbrake, Wing mounting etc. I expect a fairly easy build although have spent some time translating key word of the German instructions using Google translate.
