Sanda Models is a European manufacturer that has been producing competition models exclusively for nearly two decades.
We are pleased to announce that the Mini Mach line of gliders has been improved. Working closely with Sanda, we have been able to make a couple of changes to the Mini Mach.
Firstly, Sanda has generously agreed to install the ball link control horns in the V-tails during manufacturing. Installing the ball links was definitely the hardest step in assembling the plane and now we no longer need to worry about it. The other major change was moving the flap hinge from the top, of the wing to the bottom. This allows the servo linkage geometry to pull the flap down to 90° without resorting to cutting the wipers or the other modifications that we needed to do with the previous generation.
Enjoyable to fly and pretty easy on the pocket book too, the Mini Mach Electric is just the ticket for zipping around the local back 40. The Mini Mach wing is molded primarily from fiberglass and reinforced with carbon tow in all the high stress areas. In between the layers of fiberglass is a layer of Herex foam which separates the inner and outer wing skins, giving them high stiffness and resistance to torsional loads. The use of Herex foam is usually reserved for more expensive air-frames. The fuselage is also molded from fiberglass and reinforced with carbon tow in high stress areas. This result is a light air-frame that is strong but reasonably flexible.
An excellent molded composite, electric sailplane.
