After 20 years and several thousand "made in Germany/highest quality kits" sold, we "tuned" the Libelle. It kept it's brilliant flight characteristics, the easy handling, the outstanding lightweight and solid construction with pine spars and shear webbing. What is NEW? New is the balsa sheeting (up to the main spar) and spoilers as standard with an innovative linkage. Due to that, the required landing area can even be smaller than before. Spot landings in contests are possible without any problems. The light weight of the Libelle EVO V2, the high mechanical solidity due to the partly sheeted wings and, last but not least, the spoilers as standard, make the V2 very interesting for "electric-glider-competitions-for-everybody" and for the use in alpine unknown areas. Therefore we didn't have to change a lot in the description (basically since 1993, a lot of you are surely familiar with it and know it from our printed catalogue - the "Hoellein-bible").
"You'd like to have a new plane, your wife (girlfriend, etc...) impose several conditions to this new model? It shouldn't be too large, so that there still is enough room in the trunk for other things. Further it should have calm flight characteristics, so that YOU can relax during the flight. The plane has to be constructed quickly, so that you don't have to spend that much time in the cellar or hobby room, and, last but not least, it must not endanger the installments for the new kitchen either! Honestly: do you also already have the fifth glider, which needs 200 meters obstacle-free area for the approach and a flat airfield for landing of at least 100 meters? Our Libelle lands in your hand, if you like! You won't be able to avoid being fascinated by the flight characteristics and the quality of the components (lasered)! With light wind you can fly our LIBELLE EVO V2 for a couple of hours...everywhere you like!
Of course MADE IN GERMANY - as usual! You take a lasered rib-set, push the root rib into the rib-set and then into a lasered fuselage side … or the main spar into the precisely lasered recess of the ribs … or the lasercut rudder into the intended fit of the lasercut elevator … and you will share our enthusiasm for the first model of our (at the time) CNC-manufactured model line (original Libelle since 1993!). In April of 2002 the manufacturing of our LIBELLE EVO at LÖSER-CNC was taken over by GRUENER CNC service (those with the CLIMAXX, THERMAL INSTINCT, SOPWITH PUB ...). The construction had been modified carefully (we don't want to impair anything in the end) and optimized. The rudder and the elevator form an interlocking framework with the fuselage, so that construction errors are excluded. The wings consist of shear webbed pine spars, which preset the dihedral. A device for the vertical alignment of the ribs is included. The frames are now interlocked with the fuselage sides. The new construction plan (now multicolored! in the top quality of GRUENER, as usual) and a new, detailed, fully illustrated manual with perspective drawings make the previous equipment complete.
LIBELLE EVO V2 - lasercut in perfection!
The kit contains all needed wooden parts (most of them are lasered), rudder horns made of lasercut plywood and a complete set of small parts and linkages. Also included: a multicolored printed CAD-plan 1:1! Glue and iron-on covering film (we recommend ORACOVER) are NOT included in the kit. The RC-equipment for our LIBELLE consists of 2 servos Graupner C 261 for elevator and rudder, 2 4.4g-servos for the linkage of the spoiler. For the drive we use the Robbe outrunner Roxxy 2834/10 from Robbe, a 2S/1300 LiPo battery and the Roxxy-controller 820 from Robbe. The Aeronaut CamCarbon 11x6 in combination with this drive ensure a convincing climbing performance. Our test models are equipped with Futaba-receivers. There is enough room for all the other 2.4GHz-receivers as well.
