The V6 was designed in winter 1995/96. Wing and stab are
built from CNC milled molds, while the fuse male plug was hand
carved in Oberammergau - somehow, hand figured fuses still tend
to look better than computer designed ones (see that weird V5 fuse).
Propulsion: 27 cells Sanyo N-1000SCR, Kontronik speed
controller and brushless geared Kontronik or MEB motor. We're
using various propellers with a diameter of 15 to 16" and a
pitch of 14 to 16".
RC System: Graupner/JR mc-12 PCM receiver, Graupner/JR
C341 servos, Sanyo or Panasonic 110 mAh receiver battery.
Wing airfoil: HD50, Stab

|The V6 sports an aileron linkage which runs almost completely inside the wing. The servos are located near the wing center and link to the ailerons by a carbon torsion tube with a ball bearing outboard and a steel wire.|
