This ballast set is designed for the Sprite Hot and Thermal, but also works well for any model needing a physically flexible ballast system. Adding ballast improves performance when the wind and/or lift is strong. Ballast allows the model to be flown fast without loosing as much height as it if it was just dived.

The Sprite ballast is assembled on a slightly flexible wire, which makes it possible to fit the ballast in more constrained places. This makes it especially suitable for F5J models.

The set includes:
4 pcs brass ballast slugs with a diameter of 16 mm and the length of 50 mm
2 pcs brass ballast slugs with a diameter of 18 mm and the length of 50 mm
1 pc noncorrosive wire for fastening of the slugs
Screws for fixing of ballast in the fuselage

The weight when using all slugs is 534 g (18.8 oz). However by the weight can be varied from approx 100 g up to 534 g by adjusting the number of slugs used. The position of the slugs can be set to leave the centre of gravity in its unballasted postion, or moved, as required. See the PDF file.
