TopModel Samsara

3.5 2
A beautiful, 3.2 meter, powered thermal hunter.
  • Upon opening the box that contained the Samsara, I was once again pleasantly surprised to see TopModels very good craftsmanship and build quality. All of the parts are individually wrapped or bagged; airframe parts, screws, control linkages to the firewall, the kit is beautifully packed and very complete! 

    The Samsara is an excellent thermal ship that features a sleek and long carbon reinforced glass fuselage that is light yet strong with ample room for gear. A traditionally built up, 3 piece, D-tube balsa wing does the heavy lifting. The full flying elevator is a built up balsa construction with a carbon spar and a carbon leading edge. Both the elevator and the rudder servos reside within the tail, increasing control surface accuracy, preserving fuselage space and eliminating unduly long control rods.

    The Mark Drela AG series airfoils allow the Samsara to float around in a thermal yet, slip briskly through the sink when searching for the next source of lift.
