TASER unplugged and electrical from PCM, review

The new plane review of the TASER UNPLUGGED and TASER ELEKTRO from PCM are online. F4N-Team built and flew this axtraordinary 2.0m full carbon gliders for you (unplugged version builded and flew by Philippe D., electrical builded by Martin K. and flew by Lorenzo).


Last year I [Philippe] found too many days with not enough lift for my slope ships so over the winter I wanted to build a light lift sloper that was tougher than a DLG and at least 2 metres span. After a lot of research, I made my decision…

The Taser Unplugged is a new creation from PCM in Austria. She was born out of a mixture of DLG and sloper DNA resulting in a very slippery and extremely light 2m ship that can fly in the lightest of lift but when the wind picks up can penetrate surprisingly well for a 2m ship with a flying weight of just 485g!
She is 100% carbon fibre from tip to tail and looks absolutely stunning for it.  All that carbon means a very, very lightweight model that flies a lot like a DLG. The model is manufactured to the absolute highest standards as we have all come to expect from PCM. All surfaces are cut and hinged at the factory meaning all you need to do is install the radio gear. One option that is left to the builder is the ailerons/flaps. They are supplied as one long, single flapperon like a DLG allowing you to choose the number of control surfaces. Seeing as the F4N team fly predominantly on the slope where flaps are a must to allow controlled landings (see the maiden video for a great example) I opted for both flaps and ailerons however those who want the lightest possible model can opt for a single control surface that means 2 less servos to carry.
I have opted for a 2 cell 850mAh LiFe battery that allows for a whole long afternoon on the slope without changing and is the perfect weight whilst avoiding the need for a UBEC.

Update and new project

(D) Werte Freunde F4N, wir haben in den letzen Tagen viele Neuigkeiten eingefügt. Erstens die Reviews sind mit Photos und neue Informationen weiterentwicklet worden. Zweitens die Locations sind mit Landeskarten (1:50’000) und Photos klar sichtbar und im Gelände auffindbar. Drittens es sind neue Videos unserer wunderbaren Lansdschaften aufgeladen worden. Im Youtube unter Nickname “Cadorna1976” sind noch mehr FlyCam-Videos auffindbar (http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=cadorna+1976). Bei dieser Website Flying4Nature (F4N) verlinken wir nur die Schönsten. Viertens unser neues Projekt ist angekommen: die Poky’s! Wir informieren Euch sobald sie flugbereit sind. Wir freuen uns auf Deine Kommentare und Fragen. Bis bald Lorenzo and Lian.

(E) Dear friends of F4N​​, in the last few days we have updated the website with many more features. First, the reviews have been improved with photos and new information. Second, the flying locations now include national maps (1:50 000) and onsite photos. Third, new videos of our wonderful flying locations have been uploaded. The F4N website only showcases the best videos. More can be found on Youtube under the nickname “Cadorna1976” (http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=cadorna+1976). Fourth, our new project has arrived: the Poky’s! We will post more information about them as soon as they are ready to fly. We look forward to your comments and questions. Lorenzo and Lian.
