Mibo Electra2 3.5/3.9 F5J/ALES
Mibo has been hard at work revising the already stellar Electra which is wildly popular in Europe.
Some of the key features-
-New Fuse, shorter nose and longer tail boom
-New Tail group, slightly smaller in dimensions and lighter
-New Tip panels with more efficient tip design
-New construction method of wing resulting in large weight savings.
In addition there will be all new graphics and more visible stripes on bottom of wing.
This will be available in 2 spans, 3.5 and 3.9
Development of the larger span wing was started for a model called the Hydra, but now will be renamed Electra2 3.9
So here it is, the all new Mibo Modeli Electra 2. Available soon in the USA at Flight Comp.
All new wing tips that are flat and rounded as is the current trend. This particular model has ailerons that do not extend all the way out but Mibo tells me they will go all the way out to the tips on the next models.
Smaller/thinner/lighter tail group.
All new lamination on wings, this is the glass/disser version which is lighter than previous all glass wings.
I believe this model is a 3.5m version, 3.9 available as well. Rough estimated flying weight of this model is 55-58oz.
The only part that this model shares with the Previous Electra is the center panel, everything else is all new. Tail group is not compatible with previous version.
More info on specs, pricing, and availability coming soon. I can tell you that we will be getting the first batch of models off the production line.

Airfoil is the same as previous model, MT-25750-L. Very thin foil and works better for a light model. Tail is HT-13.
I'll get share more info as soon as I get it from Mibo.

The thin wing also helps with penetration in active conditions.
