Jive has been developed for top level competition flying, but
is equally well suited for the rough and tumble of normal club
use due to its tough yet exceptionally lightweight construction.
Designed with the ability to fly extremely slowly yet with outstanding
manoeuvrability, the Jive can take off and land on the smallest
of patches. On low rates the Jive makes a great second model,
but increase them and it becomes a fantastic 3D/Fun Fly model.
The large surfaces combined with light wing loading and forgiving
handling mean you can try those manoeuvres you have only previously
dared attempt on the simulator!
Every part of the design has been thought out with simple design
ideas like a braced wire undercarriage to help absorb those less
than perfect landings/touch & gos, to the use of a double
layer of balsa sheeting in the centre of the wing so the wing
bands don't cause any damage.
The wing has been carefully designed to keep it both lightweight
and tough. The aerofoil is thinner and has a different section
to most traditional funfly models, allowing it to penetrate into
the wind better on breezy days and increases the glide ratio.
As with many modern 3D aircraft, the Jive comes fitted with Side
Force Generators (Tip plates) which act to increase the side
area enough to allow the Jive in knife edge, a first in its class!
They also have another benefit, when the Jive is turning tightly
they reduce the tip stall and help the aircraft track better
at slow speeds. This is particularly useful during limbo or touch
and go competitions.
