VV Models Sonix F3B


Recommended Posts

Been a while since I took delivery of this model. And after spending nearly three years up in warrick with Tom I thought I would share what is possibly the only VV Models sonix in the uk. 

vavlavs models are always very well made. The fit and finish is really decent. 
final dry weight is 2300g. Ok slightly on the heavier side for an f3b model, but now that formula is now defunct (shame :() it possibly doesn’t matter. 
I can ballast it up to over 4kgs. 
I haven’t managed to maiden it yet due to this weather pattern we seem to be in at the moment. 
I do not expect any dramas though.

Finally managed to maiden the sonix today. 
Handling as expected from a vaclav model. 
flew straight. 
the wind was slightly crossed and had more wind then lift. 
having said that model tracked well, turned well and was responsive to changes in flap. 
did a couple of screaming runs past the pilots box. Nice square loops and easy rolls. 
be good to get it in a course to see if it’s any good, but in reality I’ll be happy with a bit of winching down the local field.
