Cuantic – F3A Two Meter Pattern Plane
After flying the Zonda for a few years we placed the capabilities of a monoplane to a higher level, the Cuantic project was born. Several months of testing the Cuantic in all conditions the result is a very powerful and neutral aircraft, it's a state-of-the-art monoplane designed and developed with the latest construction techniques achieving a low weight with a quality finish.
Designed to fly the most demanding sequences; P21 &F 21 as well as the unknown sequences incorporating a very simple set-up. The Cuantic capabilities include; excellent knife-edge, rolling circles, ad the most complex maneuvers in FAI.
You may be curios how it performs in lateral and crosswind conditions due to its large side area, this is a common question we receive. The Cuantica's outstanding performance under these conditions of strong winds in Argentina (where it's born) makes a for a very predictable, and stable flying F3A airplane.
