Xplorer F5J (New Version with longer Fuselage and Tail in stock)

Please note there is no Xplorer 3 F5J produced by NAN Model. The F5J version will not have rounded wing tips like the F3J version. Our stock is the latest version of the ofiicial Xplorer F5J

This model has been designed especially for F5J or any other type of electric glider contest. It has the same wing design and profile as the two times F3J World Championship winning Xplorer F3J. A new fuselage design has further reduced drag and weight. A massive weight saving has been made by reducing the amount of materials used to construct the model. Because of this the model is suitable for F5J and electric flying only and parts must not be interchanged and used with F3J or any models launched with tow-lines or bungees.

It has a wing span of 3.8m which has proven the best in overall performance in all conditions. The empty airframe with all parts and accessories weighs around 1150g. The flying weight starts from an incredible 1625g which will depend on the type of motor/battery and rc equipment used.

NAN Model have produced a fantastic new light weight F5J contest model that will no doubt go on to win many contests in the right hands.

The Xplorer F5J kit includes;

  • Fully moulded carbon fuselage
  • Fully moulded carbon wing
  • Fully moulded composite carbon tail and fin
  • Full hardware pack

This new F5J version is fantastic, Came out at 1650g flying and construction is much improved with the all carbon wing. Excellent service from Acemodel.
Unbeatable in light to medium conditions. Superb handling and surprisingly easy to fly. Recommended.
I was surprised now tough the model is considering its weight. The finish and fit of the parts are excellent. I look forward to flying it in F5J contests. It would be even better with a ballast tube fitted but I managed to fit one myself.
