Ventus 2cx and 2cxM Scale
Gliders with 4.4m Wingspans
$999-$2,099 + S&H from ICARE/
ICARUS, 890 ch. D’Anjou, Unit
1, Boucherville, QC, J4B 5E4,
Canada; Tel.: (450) 449-9094;
ICARE is pleased to announce the
release of two new versions of the
Ventus high-performance scale glider,
the Ventus 2cx and the Ventus 2cxM.
Both versions are available with a
divided four-piece wing that makes
transportation easier. Each wing half
breaks down into two pieces, making it
shorter than the fuselage. The Ventus
2cxM also comes with a preinstalled,
fully operational self-launch unit. It only
requires a five-cell LiPo battery.
Two of ICARE’s Super Scale gliders,
the 1/4-scale Ventus 2cx and Ventus
2cxM, feature a 4.4-meter wingspan
and many details including upholstered
seats. The canopy is finished, fitted, and
painted. All a builder needs to do is add
a scale pilot.
With precut and hinged control
surfaces, and the wings and control
surfaces covered in Oracover, the
model is comfortable on a slope and
can be winch launched, but it is best
for aerotow or a self-launch system.
Airbrakes, functional retracts, and servo
wires are preinstalled. Regular, micro,
mini, and sub-micro servos are all
required to get the Ventus 2cx or Ventus
2cxM into the air.
Factory Pre-Balanced Propellers
@ $2.05-$3.39 + S&H from Master
Airscrew, 3219 Monier Cir.,
Rancho Cordova CA 95742; Tel.:
(916) 631-8385; website: www.
If you’re tired of spending the
time and effort trying to balance new
propellers, look no further than Master
Airscrew’s revamped RC aircraft
propeller lineup that now includes
Factory Pre-Balanced Propellers for
aircraft with exceptionally tight blade
weight tolerances of 0.01 grams or
One focus with propellers is safety.
Unbalanced propellers can cause
bearings to wear, jeopardize flight
performance, and pose safety risks to
the pilot as well as spectators. Required
for regular propellers, balancing is often
overlooked because of lack of experience
and the time it takes to balance them.
