Orbit ARTF

Orbit ARTF

Overview :

A charismatic, '30s' styled cabin model for relaxed Sunday flying.

Tha elliptical wing has a charm that was made unforgettable by the famous Spitfire. It's a shape that envokes a bygone era, in fact, the whole design of the Orbit is designed to do that. The choice of a cream background to the colour scheme and the dramatic colours suggest the 'art deco' period as well.

When it comes to construction, the Orbit is bang up to date. She is a CAD design that has components that are Laser cut, jig assembled and covered in modern Oracover heatshrink film.

Power can be chosen from three sources, a .52 4-Stroke, a .46 2-Stroke or a suitable brushless motor (2826/06 suggested). The facility for all three is catered for in the kit.

Flying the Orbit has no surprises other than good ones. She is docile when required and 'sporty' when you want to be. By utilising a strong aluminium undercarriage, the Orbit is quite happy on bumpy grass strips as much as smooth tarmac. She makes a great all weather model for a range of pilot abilities.
