ICARE is pleased to offer this very competitive ALES ship.
The Magellan 3.4 ALES has been developed for the electric thermal duration category, like ALES (Altitude limited electric soaring) or F5J.
It is now our largest version of the popular series of Magellan electric gliders.
It has taken almost a year of development to achieve a very competitive airframe, which is very light, has great handling, excellent wind penetration and yet still at an affordable price.
Wing structure is based on the same molded full carbon technology that make the Magellan series so successful. This type of construction results in a very strong, yet light wing and a very accurate airfoil shape. The fuselage is build under similar technology as the Magellan 110 which is full Kevlar/Carbon lay-up cured under high pressure to reduce weight to a minimum. It is extremely strong, stiff and light.
All this results in a very competitive airframe, thanks to its low weight and great and easy handling. The long tail arm and the elaborate wing planform gives a smooth and easy low speed handling that will allow you to work small low-level thermals with confidence, only little rudder input is required to hold plane in a thermal turn. On the opposite aggressive crow setting allows for slow and precise landing to the spot.
