Huge 7M Wingspan

Check out this latest scale sailplane from LetModel. It's a 7M JS1 and it is gorgeous! With that long wingspan, you get 10mm high 500mm long double connected airbrakes that can flex with the wing, pretty cool! It can be built out as a pure glider or with electric and possibly even jet power. The rest of the specs and details are scarce but more info will be available when LetModel puts up the product page. Oh and if you are wondering how you can transport such a large sailplane safely, you can use the Cobra Trailer for that.

Check out the LetModel Website here for more info when it is posted.

For those who may not know, the JS-1 fuselage is VERY similar to the ASH-31 / ASH-26 fuselage, Jonkers Sailplanes is from South Africa. The model should be a stellar performer, 5 servos in each wing!!

Yes, Schleicher sold the Jonkers brothers an unfinished ASH 26 fuselage for their project which eventually became the JS1.

Now I want to make a "Cobra Trailer" for my "tiny" 4 meter glider.

Wow, I could hardly tell I was looking as the wing connection area for a model glider. And those spars! The trailer is the cherry on top!

We are lucky in this hobby to get sailplanes of this quality being produced. That wing is just as gorgeous in 1/3rd scale. Definitely on my list of must have gliders for the fleet....

I thought this model was being manufactured by LET and distributed by TopModel of France:

I found this part of the TopModel write-up as very intriguing:

"The fantastic wing has an exclusive system of adaptive twisting. The twist of the wing of the JS1 evolves according to loads apply to the wings, with the effect to twist (negative twist) the wing tip at High-G maneuvers. As a result, in conjunction with the aerodynamic choices made on this wing, a gain in efficiency in tight turns and better locking of course in roll and yaw during this type of maneuver."

Sexy! I'm dubious about the twisty wing thing without further info though!
