A lot of new planes entered the market in the past months and Team Concept does not want to stay behind new trends and technologies. Why a Concept X5? Well, most of you know the variety of CX planes over the years and in my opinion, we are still having the best wind penetrating plane on the market with the CX4. But being good here needs a trade off in other parts of the flight envelope. Saying that, the CX4 was never known to be the killer deadair plane. We did several things here…Assembly guide
First one was to move the flight envelope towards better deadair characteristics but giving away only little of the wind penetration abilities. So, thiner airfoil with a wing area of 19,5 sqdm. New, more aerodynamical fuselage with slip off nose (designed by Laurynas himself) and finally – a solid core wing! That was one of the reason, why I asked Laurynas for a cooperation – he is the best producer of solid core wings and also one of the top overall quality producers worldwide…From the scratch he was able to match the defaults concerning weights. An AUW of 210-230gr should be achieved very easily. So far, we have wing – CW40 layup with HM carbon reinforcement ~105gr Fuselage – ~ 33gr tailset – average ~ >10gr We will offer 2 basic designs with various color combinations. There will be only one distributor worldwide for the CX5. Aero+ will sell it for us in Asia, so all our Asian/Pacific friends will have the opportunity to order the CX5 via www.aeroplus.co At the beginning, 2 designs and 2 layups will be available with various color combinations. A camouflage design and a design that allows best visibility and contrast with lowest possible weight.
