New Product

Pike Dynamic F5J


Yes friends, Samba finally has something new for 2017! The Pike Dynamic. I know very little right now, but it seems it is an evolution of the Perfection concept and maintains much of the Perfection's design elements although all the parts and molds are brand new.

Thinner wing, slimmer fuse with new production technology to greatly reduce weights. Solid cored tails that are lighter.

From Samba-

We are very glad to inform you that new model is ready for Production. PIKE Dynamic
we have already done many of flying tests and comparisons with Perfection. thanks to bigger dihedral (ont the wing tips) the model circles much better.
joiners will be availlable in both dihedral options.
wings have optimalized profile for F5J , wider flaps and ailerons for better brakes efficiency. Wing section is designed for better lifting up and much better penetration with lower weight.
Fuselage is shinner and is produced by improved technology and better materials
weight of empty fuselage for light model is 120 g compare to perfection fuse 190 g with comparable stiffness
full core rudder with weight about 21 g - again lighter than perfection
elevator will be also made same technology like rudder

Updates info from Samba-

"Dynamic has been designed for f5j but will be used also for f3j
wing span is slightly smaller than perfection and wing area is the same. Fuselage length is 161 cm and is available only with 32 mm bulkhead.

Wing is available only with LDS linkage (there will be arms for lds in ailerons and flaps). On request we will not fix lds arms and customer needs to fix arms in ailerons and flaps for conventional linkage himself.

weight starts on cca 1100g "

I will be getting much more info in the days to come and will post it all here. Some teaser photos....

Looks great !

Fuse is already 70 grams lighter so I would assume the AUW will be in the 1200 range with an appropriate airfoil.

Pretty impressive considering dudes rock 5J competitions with the Perfection in Europe regularly.

Great job Samba.

Fuselage is still too small.

For the rest, this has to be seen in flight...

You mean short or thin

I have no doubts, Dynamic an improvement over Perfection, which was improvement over Perfect, which was improvement over Superior... Time will tell if Dynamic becomes a classic like it's predecessors have become.

I have one practical issue with dynamic. 2 part wing is not compatible with my transport system.

I will admit, I love the two piece wing design. But I am not traveling via airlines either.

Not that I can afford one, but the 2 piece wing would be a non-starter for me as well ;(

Jim,

The info I see is 3680mm... I am sure the drawings will come soon!
We are being told pricing "about" +250-300 north of Perfection.

Actually, when you see all the work and technology that goes into these planes, the prices make sense.

Let's see some more manufacturing photos, that's cool stuff.

Unfortunately, for many of us, the price is unaffordable, even if it is completely reasonable considering the cost of designing, tooling & manufacturing these beautiful aircraft.
