ET-Air RaceM

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The RaceM is made by ET-Air Slovakia S.R.O. based in Martin, Slovakia

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We have decided to make only one version of the RaceM. For the time beeing we only deliver the X-tail version called the RaceMx

 

The current layup:

Wing:

Glass/carbon 93, herex sandwich material, glass. Main spare is made of up to 5 layers of herex laminated with glass + high quality Unidirectional carbon over and under the spar. 4 glass tubes are fitted in front and behind the main spar for ballast they can hold up to 1200grams. Empty weight of each wing panel is ca 640grams.

 

Fuselage:

Glass, carbon, kevlar mix,  empty weight ca 340grams

 

Elevator:

Glass, balsa sandwich material, glass with a carbon tube for spar.

 

You can choose colours from the order form. Standard layout as seen here:

It is an asymetrical design with the RaceM logo incorporated on the right wing half. You can just see that Greg is happy :-) with his RaceMx

 

The kit is delivered with a carbon joiner made of high quality Unidirectional carbon. It also comes with a small set of small parts like brass control horns for flaps and ailerons (4pcs) and Simprop wing connectors.

The fuselage is made ready with elevator and rudder pushrods.
