Lentus Thermal RR

The Lentus is the latest development from MULTIPLEX. The model is designed as a club glider with a focus on thermal and slope flight.

We have again implemented a lot of innovative ideas in the Lentus. In the basic RR version already built, the model has a powerful ROXXY brushless motor for 3S-2600 batteries and is equipped as standard with 6 Hitec HS-65HB servos for elevator, rudder, ailerons and flaps. By installing the optionally available retractable landing gear, the model is self-launching in conjunction with a 4S 2600 battery and an 8x6" propeller. As a further option, it is possible to activate the prepared tow release by installing a Hitec HS-65HB servo, and this despite the installed electric motor and landing gear! Due to the modern airfoil design, the model achieves a very wide performance range and allows a dynamic flying style. The 4 flap surfaces allow pinpoint landings (butterfly).

Multiplex Lentus Thermal Features

  • Very good-natured circling flight characteristics for safe thermal flying.
  • Prototypical look of modern gliders
  • Clear view canopy with detailed cockpit
  • FES option (Front Electric Self Launch) with optional retractable landing gear, 4S drive (4S 2600) and 8x6 propeller - so the model is self-launchable
  • Tow release prepared (can also be used with the electric version)
  • TEK vario installation prepared (display of airspeed and vario measurement data)
  • Stable, elaborate wing with double CFK-ALU composite spars
  • Forced connection of servo contacts with M6 high-current connectors in the wings
  • Removable rudder with cove hinges
  • Extremely rigid fuselage in M-Space technology with 20mm profile tube
  • Rudder flaps reinforced with stainless steel tubes
  • Spacious, structured interior for battery, RC and telemetry
  • High quality printed and plotted decoration
  • Landing skid made of sturdy stone chip protection foil
  • Nose strip protection integrated in the decor

Span, weight, wing area?

Thanks.
(Don't feel obligated, tho. I won't be in the market for this unless my house burns down and takes lots of models with it.)

No class, no smarts, and ugly
Funny how no specs are listed on the site for span or anything.

Are they serious on a foam plane priced at $675.03 ?! That $.03 makes the price even funnier.

I have an EasyGlider, a FunGlider, and a Cularis... I would trade them all in for the Lentus.
You had me at "self-launching."

Thanks smurf. Asked our August web guru to fix the omissions.

Had a sort of ruthless response drafted but deleted it. Because not everyone gets my humor and brash responses, as a vendorbest tone it down or get blasted. But it was funny.

Look it is expensive it is foam and darn it flat out works.
Well enough for me to invest into bringing in the entire line again after almost 20 years. It's that good!

You're welcome but you kind of didn't answer the question .
I'm a pretty big smartass and it is my kind of humor.

I'll do a demo flight and be a product tester I live in Michigan so send one to me ( free )and I will play with it for a few years .

Honestly, that price point would put me in the category of people the died in their sleep with a pillow over their face by the wife. And that would just be the end of it after days of suffering and torture the way only a wife can do. lol

I don't doubt it flies well at all.
