Our new project, which we are currently working on
intensively, is PIKE Paradigm. This model is designed by Philip Kolb and
Benjamin Rodax. The model is designed for the GPS Sport category, which is very
well developed in Europe. Also it is great for slope alpine flying or flying for
fun anywhere because it has an electric motor. The model will have a wingspan of
4726 mm, three-part wings. Diameter for spinner will be 38 mm. PIKE Paradigm
will be the first model in this size category which will be made with full
Rohacell core technology. Thanks to this technology, Pike Paradigm can be
produced much stronger compared to sandwich technology at the same RTF weight.
On the beginning it will be made with crostail and later also as V tail version.
The expected date for commercial sales is the end of 2021 - the beginning of
French Championship F5J 2021 . 66 pilots

Prestige 2PK STORM is a new version for very windy
conditions in the F5J category. We were mainly inspired for this change in
several windy competitions last season.
It will be produced instead of the Windy version and will be much stronger than
the Normal version. Its RTF weight will be 1650 - 1700 g. The carbon skin layer
is reinforced and the beam is strengthened. The beam reaches 80% of the strength
of the F3J version.
We used our experience with full rohacell core technology in the development of
the F3J version of the Prestige 2PK. This is probably the only model in the F3J
category, which is made using full Rohacell core technology.
A story from World Champion Jan Kohout is out as
Peter Zweers have been out winching his Prestige 2PK F3J version and
Egbert van der Laan filmed him. The result is a rather nice video as
we go into the winter season for some of us. F3J version can be
ordered now. Weight is spot on FAI F3J limit but depending on colors
used. It can also be mounted with servos under the wing so one can
just change the nose to electro and fly it as an F5J version. The
change takes 30 seconds
Here is the video:

9th. Samba cup F5J - NEW
The korona situation in the Czech Republic is developing quite well. It is now
possible to organize events with up to 100 people. From May 25, the number of
people is likely to increase to 500. All under certain security conditions. But
since everything is developing very dynamically and the situation may change or
worsen, registration for the Samba cup F5J will not start until the beginning of
July. International participants are also welcome if they are allowed to enter
the territory of the Czech republic.
It is probable that the entry of foreigners from individual countries will be
released gradually according to the current situation in individual countries.
The start and place of registration will be published at the turn of June and
Stay healthy, see you in August
9th. Samba cup F5J - NOVÉ informace
Situace s Koronavirem se zatím vyvýjí vcelku dobře. Nyní je možnost pořádat akce
s počtem do 100 osob . Od 25.května bude pravděpodobně počet osob zvýšen do 500.
Vše za určitých bezpečnostních podmínek. Ale jelikož se vše vyvíjí velmi
dynamicky a situace se může změnit, i zhoršit, bude registrace na Samba cup F5J
spuštěna až začátkem července. Vítáni jsou i mezinárodní účastníci, pokud jim
bude umožněn vstup na území české republiky.
Je pravděpodobné, že vstup cizinců z jednotlivých zemí bude uvolňován postupně
dle aktuální situací v jednotlívých zemích.
Začátek a místo registrace bude zveřejněno na přelomu června a července.
Zůstaňte zdraví , uvidíme se v srpnu
Notice for customers: From May 2020 it is possible
to pay by PAYPAL. This is especially advantageous for smaller amounts.
The current delivery date for our models is August 2020.

World Champion Jaroslav Vostrel Jr. with
new FAI loading limit version
FAI Pike Dynamic
The new F3J version, which at 1680g RTF fulfills the minimum loading in the F3J
class and is very solid built for this class. With this FAI version, thanks to
the use of partly other materials and improved model design, this version (built
on the LS version) was able to achieve even higher strength at a lower weight.
The model is fitted with our proven LDS system. We recommend the use of 22g
servos such as JRDS 181, JRDS 187, KST X10 mini, Futaba S 3173svi and the like.
Servos such as KST X12-508 are suitable for the fuse. The model is produced in
both versions of crostail and V-tail.
Pike Dynamic can be delivered with loose nose
cone for combo version F5J/F3J. Both Vtail and Xtail available.

KST servos in stock and ready for LDS Now we can also provide LDS servo linkage/frames for KST servos to

Big congratulations boys -
Let us introduce our firm and mainly our products.
All our models are based on our own experience but also on the experience of the pilots
all over the world.
Before we make moulds and start production of a model we make a prototype and test it. As soon as we know that the
model is good it is time to make the moulds. We cooperate with the top pilots in
the world to get feedback. A model good enough for a world contender is a very
smooth and balanced plane for you as a customer. The models we produce are the
best out there and we will always take feedback to make them better.
is seated in Sebranice, Czech Republic and are a family company with a strong
staff of the best workers that can be found. We all travel to the big
competitions and thereby get new knowledge and ideas of things to come. You can be
sure that we are always working on being that tiny edge in front of the development.
Our models are produced in a lot of shapes. Many PIKE-parts fit together so you can have
a different model with the same fuse. There is a lot of options on the PIKE´s:
Wings: You can choose different lay ups- glass, carbon, double carbon - called eXtreme, or
special version of PIKE Superior/Brio - light or super light. The flaps are made
top bottom hinged. Bottom hinged flaps allows 90° down
deflection. For better brakes a broader flaps are also available on request.
Fuselages: is made of carbon / kevlar cloth but also pure glass fiber if
ordered. You can have stronger ones for slope flying or lighter for F3B or F3J. The
fuse is equipped with adjustable tow hook and can hold two
ballast chambers for those tough conditions. We have several different fuses
available to suit the needs of you as a pilot. All fuses can be fitted to either
a PIKE Superior or PIKE Brio wing.
Three main options are:
- W: Two piece V-tail fuse with removable nosecone is
often preferred by the F3F pilot that wants V-tail but the easy transportation
that a 2-piece V-tail offers. The tail section is very rigid and can take those
hard sideslip landings on the slope.
- V: One piece V-tail fuse with canopy fuse is the lightest alternative we have
and with the canopy fuse it can take some hard landings and still be aerodynamic
slim. Two sizes V-tail are available to fit different type of flying.
- X: A light and very efficient tail is a key issue in aero modeling. A well
built and constructed X-tail have always been
preferred by modelers all over the world. We believe we have constructed an
elevator/rudder fuse that not only is rigid and efficient but with linkage that
is very precise and with no slop. The fuse is with canopy opening and two sizes
elevator is available to fit different type of flying. The weight penalty is
very little because we use the best technique available.
Accessories: All our models is delivered with ready fitted control horns
on all surfaces (nuts glued in the surface) and ready fitted pushrods in the fuse.
Ballast tubes: Ballast tubes in the fuselage are standard - 1 tube for apx 500 g or 2 tubes for apx 1000 g. On request one ballast tube can also be in the wings
with 500-1000g of ballast. We can off course deliver brass ballast with your
