Soaring USA is the North American distributor of the Vixen. The kit by Baudis is complete with wing bags, ballast set, and wiring harness components.
I thoroughly enjoyed flying the Vixen in all that Muncie had to offer. I ran 40% of the available ballast in the crazy conditions where wind and lift were happening, and 20% for the active and moderately windy weather where sink had to be flown through quickly
"The Vixen was designed by Daryl Perkins as a no compromise F3J model. Everything about the Vixen was well thought out for the task. It was designed to be easy to build light, and to keep the weight out of the extremities - note the V-Tail and two piece wing. There is no joiner box structure or joiner weight at half span which reduces weight out at the tips. The section choices are designed to have a wide speed range, pull hard on tow, and slow down well for a slow controlled approach. Many of you will question the six servo wing - it must be flown to be believed! The control surfaces are quite short, enabling the use of very small and light servos and less prone to twist or flutter. The largest benefits here are in the landing circle and the ability to slow down, controllably, and work the clock for that last 10th of a second. F3J contests are won on tow, and in the LZ. The Vixen is optimized for both."
