The Vixen 2 is a new hot sailplane for F5J competitive flying. The Vixen platform is a proven design that works well and this new version builds on that pedigree. The wing are designed around a 4 servo setup, but they did include outer bays in the tips if you prefer a 6 servo setup. It has LDS factory installed and ready for your servos to finish it out. The pre-hinged canopy was inspired by Daryl Perkins and provides quick and easy access to your gear inside. The Vixen 2 should be a solid performer at a great price. You can get it in one of three different layups, standard-glass/carbon, strong carbon and competition strong/lite. Prices start at $1399.

The Vixen 2 Includes:

  • Hardware
  • Pushrods installed
  • Wing bags/tail bags
  • LDS installed-flush mount
  • Canopy hinges installed
  • Ballast tubes in wing for up to 24 oz. of 9/16 ballast

E sailplane thermal hack
I have Vixen #004,, and it IS one SWEET plane! It's the standard Version that has Carbon fuse and carbon reinforced Glass wings. The quality is Excellent. It's being built right now. Looks like it'll come in under 50oz. This HAS GOT to be by FAR the best deal out there in a world class competition electric sailplane. I'm building mine as a 4servo wing. Can hardly wait to fly it.
Stay tuned,, flight report coming soon!

Ps edit : hopefully the price point for a plane of this caliber will bring more people into F5J.
