Shinto from Aer-O-Tec

Recommended Posts

Martin_N

During the trip to Rugen we managed to get a good look at the new Shinto from Aer-O-Tec designed by Stefan Eder, wing section from Max Steidler and built by Vladimir.

Its looks a well balanced glider with higher aspect ratio to the Crossover.  The agility is at least the same as the Crossover, which is a big plus for flying close in, but also looks very smooth and settled.  Stefan is still working on some modifications to the layup and flight settings.  I believe the production version will be available around Christmas time. You can be sure that the quality from Vladimir will be of the highest and even the pre-production model looked fantastic.

It will be interesting to see how it compares to other similar models.

Not sure at the moment Mark and wouldn't want to make a guess or comparison.

Reminds me of the last box I received. The box was better than the model inside it.

But I am sure yours is great Simon.

How long have you had to wait ??????

It was well packaged, in a strong wooden box. I am pretty pi$$ed off with Parcel Farce though. The driver just left the box leaning against the garage in full view from the street. It was probably there a few hours until I got home from work.

I discussed it with Stefan Eder and Max Staedle the designers in Rügen last October, and ordered it there. I think this is one of the first off the line, as Vladimir, who builds the models has been productionising it between Rügen and now. There are one or two things that are not complete yet, but I agreed with Stefan to get the model and sort out final details during the build. So I don't have RDS sorted (plan was to have LDS type linkages available, and I might well use RDH linkages I have from T9). And I am waiting on 4 bits of ballast for the joiner. No big deal, as Vladimir should send them shortly. But the good news is it looks like production is starting.

Being a Vladimir built model, the quality is pretty flawless. Lots of beautiful spread tow on show on the underside. The wings feel very stiff with strong skins.

I'll post a few photos as I build, but it will probably take a while before it is finished
