The MULTIPLEX HERON is a high-performance electric glider with T-tail and high-efficiency four-flap wing. With its elegant wings and flowing fuselage lines it responds superbly to thermals. When required, the efficient PERMAX brushless motor and folding propeller (Not included in kit version) deliver plenty of propulsive power.
Its docile flying characteristics and excellent performance in the air ensure that the HERON provides a maximum of flying pleasure, whether you are a weekend pilot or an ‘old hand’. You can enjoy floating through the air for long periods, as well as lively aerobatics – all with elegance and precision.
The extravagant four-flap wing with its extremely stiff CFRP / ALUMINIUM tubular spar technology sets entirely new standards in the 2.40 metre span class. The flaps are a standard feature, making pin-point landings child’s play, improving the launch characteristics and giving the pilot a broad performance spectrum for high speed, aerobatics and thermalling.
Our tip is to fit out this exciting electric glider with our MULTIGyro G3, which effortlessly compensates for the effects of gusts and turbulence. The gyro gives you the sensation of piloting a perfectly trimmed, much larger model through the air.
For the kit version we recommend the corresponding “HERON / SOLIUS” power set # 33 3660, which MULTIPLEX has selected to be a perfect match to the HERON, delivering a powerful, steep climb.
Among the outstanding features of this ELAPOR® model are the many new, innovative and extravagant detail features which ensure that it sets new standards in its class.
