The Pike Perfection or Pike Perfect ET can also be delivered with electro fuse. The fuse can be delivered empty or as most customers prefer with the servos ready installed.

Most new Lipo cells also fit well and with an economic setup flying weights can be as low as 1300g if one uses the lightest F5J wing. This means F3J practice can be done with very similar model to the sailplane version (as low as 1800g with SL wing). The size of the nose is big enough for any of the popular large sailplane motors on the market and size of spinner is 40-42mm (can be induvidually cut to fit also smaller spinner).
Fuse can also be delivered with glass/kevlar front for 2.4ghz receiver installation in front of wing.

Electronic model Cyclon Elite 10

Equipment used by Guillaume Bourely (Pike Superior carbon and Pike Brio carbon):
The propeller is RFM 14.5x10 Slim.
Motor is an Electronic Model Elios 25 geared 3.7/1
Controller Flash 40/60A
2 packs of TP 3S 2100 gen2 (draws 41A and can take 60A)
Also used with 10 cell CP1700 (37A)
Receiver Shulze 835w
Rx power: SBec (power from the battery)
All up weight 2540g
This setup gives apx 8-9 climbs to thermal altitude.
Suggested changes that can be made:
The propeller can be slightly bigger so that the current comes up to 55-60A. This will give faster climbs.

Cheap example:
AXI 2820/10 outrunner (almost any 800Kv 35mm min700watt motor)
Aeronaut 14x8 (44A)
3S Lipo that takes 50A
50A controller
Apx 3.8m/s climb


Both Kontronik, Hacker, and many others have competition drives that will give a few more % of thrust or lighter. But this should maybe be sold complete with motor/controller/prop/battery from a dealer that can tell the customer what to buy.
