A lot of us wants to fly high-performance e-RES/F5 gliders for competition or sport flying, but may not have the skills or time to spend two weeks’ worth of evenings putting together a balsa kit nowadays? We get it. That’s why we set out to do something about that!

The Medina comes fully pre-built and covered, so to complete the model you need to glue the carbon boom into the nose, glue the tail-mounting carbon pins into pre-drilled holes, mount the servos and run the pull-string wires. An electric power system and servos are not included in the kit, but are available from Performance Models.

The E-Medina has been designed by Performance Models and is based on the successful OZeRES 2 with the only change being the rounded wings and tail shapes. Like the OZeRES 2, the Medina has purpose-designed airfoils for modern F3/F5-RES competition flying. The wingtip airfoil is specifically optimized for great tip-stalling characteristics and can handle high variations in angle of attack. The result? A glider that turns tighter and more efficiently than similar designs, perfect for low-level thermal flying.

The properly-sized and removable V-tail is designed for control and great low speed handling, crucial during soft thermals and the landing phase. And of course, the V-tail not only looks good, but helps minimize the overall drag of the E-Medina for better L/D in all aspects of the flight envelope.

The fuselage is minimalistic but fits the ArmSoar 1806 powertrains perfectly, further minimizing overall drag by keeping the fuselage size to a minimum.
