Description

The Zeus 3170-X is a 100% composite performance glider that is of the design and build quality of the European manufacturers at a Hobby King price. This is a high performance thermal glider is designed for anyone from the hard core competitor to the Sunday flyer that simply wants the best. Also due to the high performance and aerodynamically clean design, it makes a wonderful slope model.

It would be fair to say that this is not a beginners model from a build point of view, although not difficult to assemble, some previous experience of building composite models is desirable. As the airframe is fully painted in the mold, there is no real construction to speak of other than mounting control horns and servos. The Zeus 3170-X is practical as you would expect for a glider of this size & quality. It features a 2-piece plug-in wing supported by a beefy carbon composite joiner as well as a removeable X-tail halves for super easy transport and storage. Speaking of X-tail, the full flying horizontal stabilizer gives smooth, precise control, great for spot landing task at T/D contests.

Hollow moulded in CNC generated moulds from both glassfiber and carbon fiber, the Zeus 3170-X is constructed to the highest standards of fit and finish. There is also plenty of carbon reinforcing throughout the airframe in key stress areas so it can handle those hard winch launches and final zoom with ease. All control surfaces are live hinged and have their slot wipers pre-installed, flap control horns are top mounted under nice moulded fairings, etc, it has lots of features that leave you in no doubt the Zeus 3170-X was designed with the discerning glider pilot in mind.

The Zeus 3170-X is a beautifully made, superbly designed & versatile performance glider that is going to give hours of pleasure both as a thermal ship and on the slope.
