Prism stunt aerobat

Well, want to fly a different way?
This Prism is the answer: a merge between a pylon racer and a pattern airframe gives you a fast stunt aerobatic airplane. If you are looking for a boost of adrenalin, lets fly a Prism.

Habicht 2.6m

This little Habicht has amazing flying characteristics. Even with its Gull shaped wings it has great lifting capability, and is very aerobatic. On the slope it will stay a loft in very mild winds and has excellent energy retention.

Gracia F5J

This is the big brother of the AVIA.

Gracia F5J, is an ultralite 3m (120" span) thermal duration glider. It features the same composite built-up structure, which gives this airframe the stiffness and rigidity while being extremely light.
The versatile MH-32 airfoil provides a wide performance spectrum, giving the ability for good wind penetration, when its time to get back home.

New lower prices on Schulze chargers and new models

The prices on the currently available Schulze chargers have been drastically lowered. Those fine charger are now even more affordable.
A new range will be available soon, featuring:
• Two identical charge and discharge outputs.
• Each output is able to charge or discharge e.g. 36 Nickel cells or 14 Lithium cells.
• Each output contains a balancer group of 7 single balancers for Lithium cells. The second balancer group can be automatically assigned (under certain circumstances) to the battery 1 output to balance up to 14 cells.
• All next-14-XXX chargers have the feature that the second charge output can be internally connected to output one - the results is double power of output 1.
• 40 / 60 charge/discharge setups can be stored (depending on the type of charger) – individually directed to output one or two.
• Fan with temperature controlled variable speed.
• No rising voltage on the chargers input when discharge programs are used.
