The STRATON is our new flagship of our popular Staufenbiel glider-series, well known for its outstanding price/performance ratio.

The STRATON has an impressive wingspan of 5 meters and a unique fuselage with 2,25 meters in length. The construction of this glider is similar to its smaller brothers. The wings are Styrofoam cut, sheeted with abachi wood and covered with genuine Oracover foil. Several carbon- and glass-fibre reinforcements are implemented in the wing construction as well as in the fuselage.

The most important feature of the glider is its airfoil. It changes from the root to the wingtip. From the root to the middle wing the airfoil changes from an HQ/W-2,5/12 to a HQ/W-2,5/11. Towards the wingtips it changes to a HQ/W-3/10,5.

The fuselage comes in two pieces and is glued together from the modeler. This helps reducing the shipping costs to a minimum.

In the PNP-Version of the STRATON the HIMAX V50-XL motor is already built-in as well as the six DYMOND D 7550 metal geared servos. A 20x8 CAM folding prop and a high-grade aluminum spinner is also included in the box. Moreover, you don’t have to worry about the wiring of the servos, it’s already done using built-in MPX-high current plugs which are automatically connected by joining the wings to the fuselage which are held in place with the well-proven MULTILOCK wing lock system.

We recommend a strong BEC (3A minimum) for the servos.
