"GURKE", a wing twisting glider
Construction by Tim Weißbach - Made by Gruener CNC

We proudly present the "Gurke", a glider construction 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.


Description of the "Gurke":

The "Gurke" is a very special slope-soarer. The extraordinary way of controlling the plane by twisting the whole wing panel is quite unique. 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 MH30 remains unchanged during steering, which underlines the excellent characteristics in every situation.  

The rugged "Gurke" is easy to handle – best conditions for slope soaring. Due to the low weight in connection with the MH30 it has a wide speed range. Whether light slope wind or wind force up to six - "Gurke" is ready to take on any challenge.
Mounting the wings on the fuselage is easy with the intelligent, magnetic secured wing joiner - and you don't need any tools to mount the "Gurke". So you can easily transport the "Gurke" in your backpack. Multifunctional and always with you.


The kit:

The construction is fast and easy due to the extraordinary construction plan and precisely laser-cut parts. Simply prepare the parts, plug them together and fix them with superglue.

The kit contains:

All necessary parts for the framework are included in the kit. Those are all laser-cut parts, carbon fiber- and wooden bars, wing joiner and all the required small parts for the linkages. Best birch plywood and hard balsa - only the best is good enough.


Required equipment:

  • Superglue
  • Covering material for wings and tailplane
  • Varnish or balsa sealer for the fuselage
  • 2 x servos HiTec HS-65MG or HS-65HB
  • Small receiver with minimum 4 channels
  • Receiver battery LiPo 2S (with voltage controller) or NiMH 4/300mA (1/3 AA)
  • Radio

Perfekter Baukasten und klasse Flugleistung!
Ich fliege die Gurke bereits 2 Jahre. Die Flugleistung und Wendigkeit sind für einen Flieger dieser Größe super. Wenn es etwas auffrischt kann man ihn toll rumheizen, er geht unheimlich gut um die Ecke und nimmt die Fahrt gut mit. Nach dem Anstechen sind zwei senkrechte Rollen nach oben möglich! Auch die Stabilität der Konstruktion ist prima.
Ein Radschlag bei der Landung bleibt meist folgenlos.
100% empfehlenswert!

Super Bausatz super Flieger, 31.05.2018

Mir hat der Bau große Freude gemacht und ging sehr schnell. Schwerpunkt und Anstellwinkel habe ich entsprechend der Vorgaben im Bauplan ausgeführt.
Das Einfliegen bei wenig Wind war unspektakulär nur minimale Trimmung war nötig.
Der erst richtige Flug war in England am Hang bei Windstärke 3. Der Winzling macht einfach nur Spaß ist wendig und schnell.
Am nächsten Tag bei Windstärke 4 fliegt die Gurke völlig unbeeindruckt und landen ist einfach
Mein Fazit: Die Gurke ist ein Spaßgarant und ich werde sie immer dabei haben.
