Aeronaut Plane Triple Speed E-glider 1.780mm Span # 112800 **
Sail comfortably in the thermals, take off with the rubber rope and take part in an RES competition or celebrate brisk aerobatics - all this is possible with "Triple". This completely newly developed model concept offers a shapely fuselage with a V-tail (either as a glider or as an electric glider - both versions are included in the kit) and three different wingspans. All wings can be attached to the fuselage as desired. Completely without tools, with strong magnet security. So a quick change is also possible on the airfield. "Triple speed" has a wingspan of 178 cm, a simple V-shape and long ailerons. The profile has a straight underside, allowing for rapid flight and superb gliding aerobatics. "Triple RES" has a wingspan of 199 cm and a higher V-shape than the "Triple thermal". In accordance with the RES competition regulations, the model is only controlled via rudder, elevator and spoilers. "Triple thermal" has a wingspan of 255 cm and is equipped with ailerons and spoilers. The profile is designed for thermal flights and gives the model good-natured and powerful flight performance.
With its slim design, the glider hull offers the best aerodynamic properties. The electric hull is only a little wider in the front area, can comfortably accommodate 28 mm external rotor motors and offers space for a 3s LiPo up to approx. 2,500 mAh.
Both fuselages have in common the detachable canopy with magnetic lock and a fuselage cover on the underside, behind which the servos for the V-tail are hidden. All models are completely made of wood and thus follow the tried and tested principle of model building at aero-naut. The hull is constructed from poplar plywood and balsa. The innovative plug-in system enables quick and distortion-free assembly. The V-tail is also assembled from ready-lasered parts and glued to an extra mounting bracket that is included. The wings are built using rib construction, have continuous pine spars and boxing with grooves so that assembly on any level building board is quick and easy. The trailing edge planking is also grooved so that nothing can go wrong with the position of the ribs.
The kit is also ideal for youth work and for joint building projects in clubs. The model kit contains all the laser-cut wooden parts to build the model, pine spars, rudder linkages and Bowden cables, various small parts.
Detailed illustrated building instructions in the proven aero-naut 3D style lead to quick building success.
You can find suitable drives for version E-gliders at the bottom of this page. A 3s LiPo with the dimensions up to approx. 80 x 35 x 25mm is best suited as a battery, since this battery size can be installed directly in the compartment provided at the center of gravity. Larger batteries also fit under the large canopy.
Servo up to size 11.5mm for ailerons, up to size 10mm for airbrakes

Leisurely soaring in a thermal, high-starting with a bungee, taking part in a RES competition or aerobatics – all this is possible with „Triple“. This completely new concept combines an attractive V-tail fuselage (kit includes option for E-power) with three different wings. Each wing connects to the same fuselage. Powerful magnets hold the wings in place and let you change the setup easily and quickly out in the field without tools.
Triple speed has a wing-span of 178 cm, single dihedral and long ailerons. The wing section has a straight underside, is easy to build and also ideal for aerobatics and a respectable top speed.
Triple r.e.s has a wing-span of 199 cm and a more pronounced dihedral than „Triple thermic“. Radio control is rudder, elevator and spoilers only as required by RES regulations.
Triple thermic has a wing-span of 255 cm and is equipped with ailerons and spoilers. The wing section is optimized for thermal soaring and provides excellent flying characteristics and performance.
The sleek glider fuselage offers very good aerodynamic characteristics. The fuselage for E-power has a wider nose to accept a 28-mm-outrunner and offers room for a 3s-LiPo with a capacity of 2.500 mAh. Both versions have a removable canopy secured by magnets and a removable cover on the belly of the fuselage which gives access to the V-tail servos.
All three versions of the Triple are all-wood designs, putting an emphasis on model building which has a long tradition at aero-naut. The fuselage is built up of balsa and light-ply, a well thought-out concept ensures a rapid building process and makes mistakes almost impossible. The V-tail consists of precisely laser-cut parts and uses a special jig for good results. The wings use conventional ribs and spars, and just require a flat building board for construction. The trailing edges are built-up components and combine low weight with good strength.
Even those who want to give model building a try will succeed with Triple and can build their own individual glider or electric glider in a short period of time. Flying characteristics are excellent and make sure that even beginners or less experienced pilots will have fun. Clubs will find this model even an attractive project for younger members, who still learn how to build and fly.
The kit includes all laser-cut wood parts required to build the model, spruce spars, control linkage parts and snakes, small parts bag. Detailed building instructions with step-by-step graphics and text will answer all your questions.
