RCRCM 2900mm Wingspan F3F Glider – TORNADO
Tornado has been designed in order to obtain a high-performance F3F glider , that is to say, fast, stable and very good grip in turns. The drawing is rather atypical so that the TORNADO is recognizable at first glance!
Glider for intermediate to experienced pilots, Tornado will go where you like in a dream. It is able to fly in virtually all conditions. It is part of a new generation of compact, precision, full composite, hollow molded sailplanes. This new generation of sailplanes are designed and built to be extremely lightweight with great strength and full competition capabilities. Clean, efficient designs are sure to satisfy the most demanding pilots. The 2-piece, hollow molded, carbon fiber reinforced wing has a little bit of dihedral with beautifully curved leading edges and an incredibly strong, full Carbon Fiber, square wing joiner. The strong and lightweight canopy gives easy radio and battery access. All surfaces are pre-painted in the molds for flawless external finish. The whole model uses live hinges and wipers for control surfaces. From its super-efficient V-Tail, to its new larger diameter nose area, this little guy was built for fun!
"I am very happy to have designed the TORNADO for RCRCM! This glider has been designed in order to obtain a high-performance f3f glider , that is to say, fast, stable and very good grip in turns. The drawing is rather atypical so that the TORNADO is recognizable at first glance!
RCRCM is a strong company of design and manufacturing, and that’s why I naturally approached them to start the production of the TORNADO.
I want to thank the whole RCRCM team for their work!"
Available in 4 Versions:
Fiberglass+Carbon Standard Version: Standard hollow molded fiberglass construction reinforced with carbon fiber which gives good stiffness and torsion stability with lower weight and cost. Highly recommended for sport flying.
Carbon Version: Wings built using carbon cloth as well as fuselage reinforced with carbon from leading edge of the wing to the tail. This configuration gives the model enormous stiffness and torsion stability.
The first two versions are available in stock. We also can produce two custom versions; Light Carbon Version (less weight) and Double Carbon Version (with two layers of carbon).

Another important thing about the surface of the glider: this RCRCM glider is fully moulded. Mould precision ensures that each glider has a complete aerodynamic layout but in the process of composite production, there is a slight chance of very tiny air bubbles or slight cloth grain. In the unlikely event that these small imperfections exist, they do not affect the structural strength or flight performance.
Glider long term storage: Hang glider vertically to reduce the stress on the glider surfaces to avoid deformation that could adversely affect flight performance and trim.
