During the last years we have been able to expand the powerline micro
F5J series continuous. This success is due to the countless winners
with our drives.
With our brand new powerline micro F5J (turbo) series equipped with
integrated, active engine cooling we respond to the new trend in
The gliders are nowadays built more and more lightweight, for
competition 1400g and less. For being able to fly at more wind speed,
the gliders are often equipped with ballast framework. This is where our
new and more powerful powerline micro F5J (turbo) comes to fruition.
Through a complete rework, we’ve been able to increase performance, extend run-time and increase efficiency.
Furthermore we are now offering a gap less powerline micro series for gliders from 1000-3000g.
The powerline micro turbo is not a kit, drive and gearbox represent a permanent unit.

(With the 4s setup, it is important not to run full power all the time. It is only meant for a few seconds in order to get away a couple hundred feet if necessary.
The Powerline micro turbo is not a kit, Motor and Gearbox are a matched unit.
