Post your F5B ship pictures here

Hello everyone.
Let's see all of you're fast and beautiful F5B ships.
Information regarding the setup will be more than welcome.
I'll start with my Caleb, AXI 2820/10, 10X2200 NiCD, 11X7 prop':

Hi1
Here are some of my selfmade full-molded F5B competition planes!
First the Eisvogel which was flown this year at the F5B WC in York from two members of the italian national team which got the third place with the team!

Second my selfmade original Raketenwurm with V-tail!
I designed a new fuse for T-tail for the new reglement with a longer fuse nose to use 18-19 inch props and a longer tail! This new model was flown at the WC 2004 from a member of the japanese national team!

Eitan - thanks.
Marcus - this are unbelievably professional beautiful ships! Are the wings molded or fiber covered?

Hi Ohad!
My selfmade F5B ships are full-molded with full-carbon wings or carbon-D-Box, Aramid-Carbon-fuse and high modulus carbon spars and special made shear webs! Everything is made under vacuum which allows to get extreme stiff and durable planes! The Eisvogel i made for the italian team for York only weighs 480 g including the 5 Servos and cables at full competition strength! For comparison a Ariane V11 weighs 510 g without any servos with less strength! It is not possible to fly the V11 in competition because it is to heavy and weak!
The planes come out of the molds in full colour! Nothing to do afterwards !

Ciao, Marcus

It's one of those "if you have to ask how much, you can't afford it" planes...

Maybe I should have put it differently; I can't afford it...
Beautifull planes though.

Does a Filip600Sport qualify?

Marcus,

You do very nice work on your airframes. With statements like the above ones is the Eisvogel available to purchase? If so, what is an estimate of cost?

Well here is my hotliner. It is not necessarily a "legal" F5B airframe but it can fly the coarse.
Setup:
Motor: Aveox 27/26/1.5
Gearbox: Maxon 4.4:1
Prop: RFM 14.5x14 (not pictured)
Battery: 10 cell 1950 FAUP zapped
ESC: Phoenix 80
Servos: (4) HS125MG's in the wing and (1) HS85MG for the elevator
rx: JR700
