Termín Samba cupu je posunut na 22. - 23.8 2020
Doufáme, že ke konci srpna budou restrikční opatření v souvislosti s COVID-19 již zmírněny natolik, že se soutěž bude možné s určitými omezeními uspořádat. Těšíme se na vaši účast.

9th. Samba cup F5J - NEW Informations
The korona situation in the Czech Republic is developing quite well. It is now possible to organize events with up to 100 people. From May 25, the number of people is likely to increase to 500. All under certain security conditions. But since everything is developing very dynamically and the situation may change or worsen, registration for the Samba cup F5J will not start until the beginning of July. International participants are also welcome if they are allowed to enter the territory of the Czech republic.
It is probable that the entry of foreigners from individual countries will be released gradually according to the current situation in individual countries.
The start and place of registration will be published at the turn of June and July.
Stay healthy, see you in August

9th. Samba cup F5J - NOVÉ informace
Situace s Koronavirem se zatím vyvýjí vcelku dobře. Nyní je možnost pořádat akce s počtem do 100 osob . Od 25.května bude pravděpodobně počet osob zvýšen do 500. Vše za určitých bezpečnostních podmínek. Ale jelikož se vše vyvíjí velmi dynamicky a situace se může změnit, i zhoršit, bude registrace na Samba cup F5J spuštěna až začátkem července. Vítáni jsou i mezinárodní účastníci, pokud jim bude umožněn vstup na území české republiky.
Je pravděpodobné, že vstup cizinců z jednotlivých zemí bude uvolňován postupně dle aktuální situací v jednotlívých zemích.
Začátek a místo registrace bude zveřejněno na přelomu června a července.
Zůstaňte zdraví , uvidíme se v srpnu

Pike Dynamic - Pike Perfection - Prestige 2PK


World Champion Jaroslav Vostrel Jr. with
the 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. See more HERE

Thank you for everything that you have done for us and the F3J category. We will never forget you.

Older news HERE

Let us introduce our firm and mainly our products.
Jane from Samba with Brio. Photo: Knewt.com
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.

Our firm 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 model.

Thanks to Jo Grini and Kevin Newton that we can use their pictures on our web page.
