Ripmax Bolero 3D ARTF (A-ARTF6720)

Please note that this is a slow speed 3D aircraft and must not be flown at high speed or structrial failure may occure.

The Bolero 3D ARTF is a high performance funfly aircraft with huge control surfaces for 3D flight. The Bolero 3D ARTF 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.

Designed in CAD, then produced on jigs with laser cut parts and then covered in high quality iron-on film the Bolero 3D ARTF oozes quality. All areas of the design and construction have been studied and optimised for performance and durability. The wings are fully symmetrical and feature a thick custom aerofoil to improve flight characteristics on windy days and a predictable response during slow speed. The aluminium spar is tough and lightweight allowing easy wing attachment via a large fuselage hatch, this allows the Bolero 3D ARTF be assembled at the field without tools. The fuselage is long to increase pitch stability and thin to helping the Bolero 3D ARTF track straight and true. The tailplanes are an open structure to reduce weight and the control surfaces themselves are huge and capable of large throws. The undercarriage is formed from sturdy aluminium to cater for everyday use on grass fields.

The radio installation is 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 3D ARTF 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 3D ARTF 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 3D ARTF 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 3D ARTF is docile enough to learn aerobatics and make a great first mid-wing model. The Bolero 3D ARTF is predictable, smooth and extremely capable with the ability to progress with you as you become a 3D pro!
