Filippo Materazzi Design - Vanth

Dear all, I would like to present my new design for aero-musical, the Vanth, especially made for extreme flight.
Here the description from FMD website:

The Vanth is my totally new freestyle and aeromusical plane. After the great success of the Metis, the Vanth try to be even better. It is thought and designed to be the most extreme indoor plane on the market. Thanks to its innovative wings, stabs and control surfaces, it can realize incredible fast maneuvers with the minimum strain, so you can use the same small servos than Metis! Even if it has very good performances in all the new 3D maneuvers, it is also very easy to fly and very slow. The depron is milled to decrease weight but paying attention to maintain a very strong structure. So it is 10 grams lighter than Metis and, saving weight, it is the perfect machine for VPP (Variable Pitch Propeller) system too. If you need the best performances in flight and you want to learn the newest 3D maneuvers or maybe to invent something new by yourself, the Vanth can be your first choice!The kit is composed by 3 mm and 2 mm depron, carbon rods (pre-cutted!), super lightweight carbon control horns and all the necessary to complete the plane.

WINGSPAN 92 cm / 36,22”
FUSELAGE 92 cm / 36,22”
MATERIALS 3 mm milled depron, 2 mm depron, carbon
FLYING WEIGHT (without battery) about 110-120 g / 3,9-4,2 Oz
FLYING WEIGHT (with battery) About 125-145 g / 4,4-5,1 Oz

I will use it in next competitions and I'm very satisfied! It doesn't need the vectorial motor to be agile in knife edge maneuvers thanks to its special shape of fuselage and rudder!

Hi! Unfortunately I don't know… I am not the responsible for selling. You can ask directly techone. I know in Europe many shops have it, maybe you can order to one of them
