In the year 2012 we were the first commercial provider in Germany of our R.E.S.olution, a fully suitable plane for competitions in R.E.S, which had been a new class at that time. In this competition class, the RC-functions are restricted to rudder, elevator and spoiler. The models with a weight of approx. 600g, except for some few self-made models, made this competition class very successful - despite of the restrictions, such as RC-functions, design and high start with a standard rubber. In the meantime the models have developed concerning lower weight and wider chord, in order to attain larger high start heights. when there is no wind at all. Under the leadership of Pietro Tescari (Andreas Decker's best friend) experts of the scene and profile specialists gathered together to create a new, powerful and competitive R.E.S.- model, based on the analysis of current successful competition models and own ideas. This has been implemented successfully, because with a prototype of this model Andreas Decker won the qualification and finished fourth in the final classification of the 1st RES German-tour in Minden the 21st, of March 2015 - a few days before his death.
The plane is manufactured by "HJW Modellbau und Laserdesign" together with PT flight models (Pietro Tescari). Herr Wreege (HJW) is a former employee of Robbe and has decades of experience in construction (CAD/CAM) and CNC-manufacturing (milling and laser) of flight models. 100% made in Germany, of course!
AndREaS is made entirely of wood (spar/leading edge/D-Box) and has a profile of 8,5% thickness (MB-674RES), which has been developed especially for this class. With it's wingspan of 1990mm it respects the regulations. The model has a flying weight of 490g-500g (non-tuned standard version), that means a wing loading of approx. 13.8g/dm²! Resulting from the profile, our AndREaS has excellent penetration characteristics -even with higher wind speeds- despite the lower wing loading.
The wing is constructed with a balsa leading edge, pine spars, sheeted balsa trailing edge and various pieces of plywood made from poplar and birch plywood. The lasercut ribs are form-fitting connected with the trailing edge by the use of support feet. Stylish wingtips ensure an elegant appearance. The wings are connected with a 5mm steel wire, but it can optionally be replaced by a double carbon fibre wing joiner. A second steel can be used for ballasting. The fuselage made of balsa is reinforced with plywood and has an additional ballast compartment. The kit contains, besides of the lasercut and numbered parts, all the small parts and linkages needed. A launching hook is enclosed as well. You get a suitable launching set at EMC-VEGA (https://www.emc-vega.de). All the kits of the Gruener-CNC-line include a multicolored construction plan scaled 1:1 and a fully illustrated German construction manual.
Glue, covering film and RC-components are NOT included in the kit. As covering film - especially for the fuselage and tail unit - we recommend ORALIGHT iron-on film.
