* Layup, Colour (serial#):


The Vladimir's Models Sprite Hot is a 2m very efficient fully molded glider for thermal and aerobatics on the slope or from a field. The advanced design by Dr Mark Drela makes it a superb 2m soarer while the low drag, low dihedral and large controls make it a great hot dog plane too.

Like other VM models the Sprite is optionally available with servo frames with bearings and internal IDS linkages ready fitted. This simplifies installing the RC massively. Whether these have been fitted or not is indicated with text like Aileron and Flap IDS fitted for MKS 6100 below the colour in the Available Options area below the price. The number refers to the servo family, in this case MKS DS6100 or MKS HV6100 servos. Other servos will generally not work as the servo splines are incompatible between KST, MKS, Futaba, Hitec, etc.

The Hot version has a reduced dihedral angle of 2 degrees, of making it especially suitable for aerobatics and thermalling in windier, more turbulent conditions. The AG40/41/42/43 section hollow molded wings have carbon spars and large ailerons and flaps, extending the speed range at the low and high speed ends of the polar. The fuselage is fitted with a ballast tube so adding ballast weight is easy, further improving the speed range.

The attractive Kevlar fuselage and removable carbon canopy hatch are highly streamlined producing an extremely low drag and sleek pod. The molded-in wing pylon reduces interference drag and the long high modulus carbon tail boom and conventional cruciform tail ensure excellent handling. The molded tail assembly holds the superbly engineered all flying tail mount. The model is easily transported with its two-piece wings and removable tail.

In addition to the exceptional design the other outstanding characteristic of the Sprite is the very, very, very complete build done at the factory, with the following items already fitted to perfection: canopy, tailboom, tailplane mount. The only work required is gluing the fin and fitting the RC.
