The main advantage of the new built-up stabilizer of SupraCompetition is the improved landing accuracy.
We achieved that by reducing the plane inertia:
- The 7 gram reduction of the stabilizer weight resulted in 15 gram reduction of the nose ballast.
- The horizontal stabilizer area is increased by 7%.
- The vertical stabilizer is also 10 gram lighter, which allowed us to remove another 23 grams from the nose.
- The stiffnes and sthrength of the stabilizer is increased due to the use of D-box from high strength IMS 65 carbon fabric.
-The airfoil is extremely accurate for built-up structures, thanks to comprehensive CAD/CAM design and manufacturing procedures
Supra Pro Competition horizontal stabilizer
Our new CAD/CAM design and manufacturing processes resulted in extremely accurate built-up horizontal stabilizer, which has as low aerodynamic drag as the molded structure.
Supra has a detachable vertical stabilizer, which can be removed to facilitate transportation. The stabilizer is fixed on the tail boom with a carbon pin. It is recommended to secure the pin with a piece of scotch tape before flying.
The rudder of Supra Competition is of ultra light built-up defing.
The rudder of Supra PRO is of rearlier molded design with Rohaccell core and is a bit heavier.
