"DEEP ERPEL", a wing twisting glider in canard configuration
Construction by Tim Weißbach - Made by Gruener CNC
Canard - completely different than usual!
We proudly present DEEP ERPEL, an extraordinary model (canard) as a twisting glider and an electric drive from Tim Weißbach! We've always been attracted by Tim's great and well-thought-out constructions. In cooperation with TIM and RALF GRUENER we managed to make something good even better.
We already proved Gruener-CNC's high quality of manufacturing with the Introduction F5J, Inside F5J and the Innovation. And from now on Tim Weißbach's models are manufactured in highest laser-cut quality, including a colored construction plan.
Quotation of the designer Tim Weißbach: "Immediate peace of mind ensues. Almost all parts of the body and soul can relax, only against the fat grin in your face you are powerless."
The extraordinary way of controlling of the DEEP ERPEL is the same as of Tim's GURKE. It is also a real wing twisting glider. Due to this, the tailplane needs no rudder gaps, no linkages and no control horns. Therefore an average V- or delta mixer is sufficient. For the elevator function the angle of the wings is adjusted in the same direction, for the aileron function in reverse. A wing twisting model has no gaps, no rudder horns and no other extern linkages, so that there are less swirls compared with other similar gliders with rudders. In addition to that the profile remains unchanged during steering, which underlines the excellent characteristics in every situation. Mounting the wings on the fuselage is easy and quickly done with the intelligent, magnetic secured wing joiner - and you dont't need any tools to mount the DEEP ERPEL. So you can easily transport the model in your backpack. Multifunctional and always with you.
