TOPMODELcz Albatros Classic 2.96M Glider/EP
The Topmodel Albatros Classic 2.96M is available in two designs, the Retro and Transparent, both of which can be configured with electric power or as a pure glider.
Like it's slightly smaller brother, the Topmodelcz Albatros 2.44M, the fuselage is supplied as a pure glider - but provision for EP is made with an included ply-box template for the neat and accurate removal of the nose in preparation for motor fitment.
The Albatros is a beautiful combination of classic design and modern technology. The nostalgic shape is perfectly blended with modern building techniques to create an electric sailplane that performs as well as it looks.
The white gel-coated, fibreglass fuselage with carbon reinforcement, combined with classic balsa/ply D-tube wing and carbon/balsa built up tail parts come together to make the Albatros such a strong and light model.
Don't be fooled by the classic looks. This model was designed and built to be a 21st century favourite. With its flap equipped, 3 piece wing and full flying elevator the Albatros is one of the most impressive models that we have seen in quite some time. Each part is carefully handcrafted with meticulous attention to every detail. As soon as you open the box, you will find the Top Model build quality that has come to be expected by customers.
