  • LOOKING FOR USED H-Model ARCUS or DUO

    Wife said I could have one more large scales sailplane, as long as it was "SELF LUNCHING). I'm looking for the H-Model 8m DUO or Arcus. Prefer the AFT SLS units. So the guys at Soaring USA, and they didn't have anything in stock, Called ICARE, and got the same.

    Anybody have anything they're will to sell??

    Down here in FL, we don't have any aero tows close by to attend, so need to become more self reliant.

    Rare birds you’re looking for in that wingspan and configuration.

    The Torcman FES UNI 8 units work great and some of those beauties on your wall would be ideal conversions. YMMV.

      Was thinking about the same thing, but would have to remove the Tow Release and stuff. Might be the cheaper option.. Or I can wait and see what comes in.

      Thanks Steve!

        Another thought, does the Arcus or Duo have the wheel height for a ROG if using a FES? Both Steve P and myself put Torcmans into Quintus’s of two different manufacturers but those birds have tall gears so self launch isn’t a problem. Rosenthal USA for one does carry a replacement landing gear that does allow for higher height (more prop clearance). Removing the tow release was the easiest part for my upgrade. Removing the lead shot encased in epoxy was the much more difficult procedure. Oh, then there was the canopy strut under the nose of the Quintus. But having done this, I can fly a 7.6 meter beauty without needing a tow plane.
