MacGregor Industries latest 3D monster - the Ventique 60E from Flex Innovations

Logo for MacGregor Industries Ltd An unconventional look for the Ventique 60E promises extreme performance and predictable and precise handling.

Flex Innovations Ventique 60E from Macgregor IndustriesDescvribed as an all out 3D monster the Ventique is 63" (1600mm) span and is aimed at 6S LiPo power. It's been designed by Quique Somenzini, four times TOC (Tournament of Champions) Champion and F3A World Champion. Modern construction techniques use a mixture of  balsa, plywood, and carbon and the innovative aerodynamics are claimed to offer extreme performance with predictable and precise handling. 

The unusual 'Shark Teeth' leading edge softens the stall at the tip and greatly reduces wing rock. Light wing loading is key to great 3D performance and the careful design and manufacture, and features like carbon landing gear and carbon spar assure 'floaty' performance in 3D manoeuvres like harriers and hovering.

The fresh original styling sets the Ventique apart from the crowd, and quality components like G-10 custom control horns and genuine Oracover covering help complete the package.

The Ventique is available in two versions, ARF and ARFSV, the latter includes four Potenza DS19410TGHV servos. The Potenza servos are digital high voltage units with titanium gears, coreless motors, and aluminum middle cases, designed to be used with a 2S LiFe battery. They are rated at 13 kg-cm (180 oz-in) of torque, with a transit time of 0.10 sec/60 degrees at 6.8 volts. High strength aluminium servo arms and all linkages are also included in the ARFSV version.
