With the The Bolero is a high performance funfly aircraft with huge control surfaces for 3D flight. The Bolero was developed by Alan Wood, the pilot behind the J!VE and was made with the aim of providing the next generation of funfly 3D aircraft building on the attributes that have made previous Ripmax funfly aircraft such as the Bossanova so popular.
The power system is easy to install and access for maintenance in wither I/C or electric power format. Just purchase the correct kit (A-ARTF6720/ICP or A-ARTF6720/ELP) for your choice of system. We recommend the QuantumII 55 motor, Quantum 80A ESC and a 5S1P Li-Po to really pack a punch if you choose electric power, or a .55 2-Stroke if you prefer an engine. The radio installation is just as simple, all servos are easy to access and there is lots of room for your choice of receiver and battery. High power servos such as Quartz QZ507 (P-QZ507) with a 6V battery are recommended for a balance of torque and speed.
The Bolero features side force generators or SFG's as they are commonly known. SFG's increase the side area of the airframe giving excellent authority in knife edge aerobatic manoeuvres allowing the Bolero to knife edge loop and much more. The side force generators simply slot in to each wing tip and are removable with one screw. They are brilliant at improving 3D flight but if you decide they aren't for you then we even include some film to cover the hole up!
The Bolero can be wild in the right hands but that shouldn't scare any novice aerobatic pilots away. Simply reduce the control movements down and the Bolero is docile enough to learn aerobatics and make a great first mid-wing model. The Bolero is predictable, smooth and extremely capable with the ability to progress with you as you become a 3D pro!
