It is based on the wing from Balster 3, a wing that gained excellent reputation for the last several years. Outstanding aerodynamic characteristics calculated by Dr. Drela and persistent wing design optimization are the key components of this model’s success.
The fuselage of new model, while preserving same simple assembly procedure, easy maintenance and exceptional strength as its parent – Blaster 3, benefits from new high-modulus carbon parts and pull-spring system. These new innovations help to considerably reduce weight and increase strength. Balster 3.5 fuselage is shipped pre-assembled with cables already drawn. You’ll need less than three hours to install the servos and set up the transmitter.
Two years of experiments on optimization of control system and aerodynamics were systematized by Joe Wurts. His work resulted in brand new airfoils and geometry of fins and stabilizers. We’ve achieved balance between two contradictory tasks – we’ve enhanced the controllability together with increasing the launch height. The pilot will also benefit from the increased strength of the fins with minimal weight. Due to the symmetric geometry of the fin the torque loads on the tail boom at launch phase are significantly reduced.
In case you’ve become too accustomed to your trusty Blaster 3 and don’t want to part with it, you can upgrade it with fuselage and fins from Blaster 3.5
