We started to produce a new strength version of the
Pike Precision 2 for
F3F made of ST 129 HM.
The model in the photo is for Alvaro Silgado at the World Championship F3F
is released and proven at competitions.
Now a good description and words from the designer Philip Kolb is available. Read ALL about it HERE
1st World Championship F5J 2019
The very first World Championship F5J is
Samba model was well presented with pilots flying our models and we are proud
that you choose our models. We managed to prepare a few models for this World
Championship from our new model the Prestige 2PK. This model is speciafically
designed for F5J and the pilots managed to get good results with very limited
flying time before this WC. Best of them was again Roberto Bonafede with his
Bronze medal in Seniors. The Czech Team Seniors with Silver medal and the Czech
Team Juniors with Bronze medal. Congratulations!!!
results can be found HERE
We have also found some
pictures of podium winners HERE
More writing later and a new page for the Prestige 2PK is very soon ready
A small video of Prestige 2PK can be found

World Champion F3J Jaroslav Vostrel Jr "Makroslav"
(earlier called Mikroslav) with his mother Eva Vostřelová after getting
dunked in water for his win. Jaroslav is the youngest WCH F3J champion
at 13 years age. He flew his Pike Perfections all competition 1700g SL,
1900g LS and 2050g standard. He was the only one with full time all
flights!!! And that included some rocket launches! See some pictures
and results HERE
World Champion Jaroslav Vostrel Jr. with
new FAI loading limit version
FAI Pike Dynamic
The new F3J version, which at 1680g RTF fulfills the minimum loading in the F3J
class and is very solid built for this class. With this FAI version, thanks to
the use of partly other materials and improved model design, this version (built
on the LS version) was able to achieve even higher strength at a lower weight.
The model is fitted with our proven LDS system. We recommend the use of 22g
servos such as JRDS 181, JRDS 187, KST X10 mini, Futaba S 3173svi and the like.
Servos such as KST X12-508 are suitable for the fuse. The model is produced in
both versions of crostail and V-tail.
Pike Dynamic can be delivered with loose nose
cone for combo version F5J/F3J. Both Vtail and Xtail available.

KST servos in stock and ready for LDS Now we can also provide LDS servo linkage/frames for KST servos to
complete our line. Read all about it HERE

Big congratulations boys -
Jany Littva senior
Thank you for everything that you have done for us and the F3J category.
We will never forget you.
Let us introduce our firm and mainly our products.
All our models are based on our own experience but also on the experience of the pilots
all over the world.
Before we make moulds and start production of a model we make a prototype and test it. As soon as we know that the
model is good it is time to make the moulds. We cooperate with the top pilots in
the world to get feedback. A model good enough for a world contender is a very
smooth and balanced plane for you as a customer. The models we produce are the
best out there and we will always take feedback to make them better.
is seated in Sebranice, Czech Republic and are a family company with a strong
staff of the best workers that can be found. We all travel to the big
competitions and thereby get new knowledge and ideas of things to come. You can be
sure that we are always working on being that tiny edge in front of the development.
Our models are produced in a lot of shapes. Many PIKE-parts fit together so you can have
a different model with the same fuse. There is a lot of options on the PIKE´s:
Wings: You can choose different lay ups- glass, carbon, double carbon - called eXtreme, or
special version of PIKE Superior/Brio - light or super light. The flaps are made
top bottom hinged. Bottom hinged flaps allows 90° down
deflection. For better brakes a broader flaps are also available on request.
Fuselages: is made of carbon / kevlar cloth but also pure glass fiber if
ordered. You can have stronger ones for slope flying or lighter for F3B or F3J. The
fuse is equipped with adjustable tow hook and can hold two
ballast chambers for those tough conditions. We have several different fuses
available to suit the needs of you as a pilot. All fuses can be fitted to either
a PIKE Superior or PIKE Brio wing.
Three main options are:
- W: Two piece V-tail fuse with removable nosecone is
often preferred by the F3F pilot that wants V-tail but the easy transportation
that a 2-piece V-tail offers. The tail section is very rigid and can take those
hard sideslip landings on the slope.
- V: One piece V-tail fuse with canopy fuse is the lightest alternative we have
and with the canopy fuse it can take some hard landings and still be aerodynamic
slim. Two sizes V-tail are available to fit different type of flying.
- X: A light and very efficient tail is a key issue in aero modeling. A well
built and constructed X-tail have always been
preferred by modelers all over the world. We believe we have constructed an
elevator/rudder fuse that not only is rigid and efficient but with linkage that
is very precise and with no slop. The fuse is with canopy opening and two sizes
elevator is available to fit different type of flying. The weight penalty is
very little because we use the best technique available.
Accessories: All our models is delivered with ready fitted control horns
on all surfaces (nuts glued in the surface) and ready fitted pushrods in the fuse.
Ballast tubes: Ballast tubes in the fuselage are standard - 1 tube for apx 500 g or 2 tubes for apx 1000 g. On request one ballast tube can also be in the wings
with 500-1000g of ballast. We can off course deliver brass ballast with your
Thanks to Jo Grini and Kevin Newton that we can use their pictures on our web page.
