RCRCM 1690mm Wingspan Aerobatic Glider – MINIVEC
Following the enormous success of our Vector– now a classic we decided to go a step further yet back with the Vector Mini – or to give it a buzz name MINIVEC!
Designed to have all the plus points of its dad-the Vector and none of the niggles, our designer decided to go the whole hog and give it a whole new look.
So what’s so special? The wings and tail planes have been curved yet retain the classic Vector look, the fuselage is softened with a larger, more curvaceous fin and the ballast now sits in the wings. Basically the clean design, affordability and plain good looks make this a plane that anybody would want in their stable.
Performance? Well for something that breaks down into a package that can easily be taken anywhere, the flight performance is simply stunning – period. Any aerobatic maneuver that is possible for a sailplane to perform is accomplished with ease. This is simply an affordable bundle of fun with a cool new look that we hope will become as much of a classic as its dad-Vector.
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.
