* Fuses for 2.4 GHz as suggested by Larry Jolly has proven good and many satisfied pilots already use these fuses. Double World Champion David Hobby from Australia will fly with this version at coming WC 2008 in Turkey.
His model can be seen on the pictures HERE
* Very demanding electro version of PIKE Perfect will be put into production in July 2008. You can see the prototype of electro version on THIS PAGE
* JK Edition - There has been developed a new version of PIKE Perfect on request of Jan Kohout. He required high stiffness with low weight and possibility of using ballast. this version has full carbon fuselage, new ballast system, tape instead of epoxy wipers on ailerons and minimum quantity of epoxy and paint. This version is usable for all conditions except the extremely windy conditions, where carbon socks in ailerons are needed to prevent flutter. Flying weight of this universal version is 2050-2070 g.
Full carbon SL version 1950 g is usable only for light conditions

NEWS for F3J 2007
After successful season 2006 for Perfect this model came through some small aerodynamical and construction modifications. We concentrated on the weak points where model suffered during hard landing, we managed to reinforce these places and keeping the same weight. The actual flying weight of the mostly used and universal full 68 carbon version is 2150-2200g. At the end of last year the demand for super light Perfect increased. We developed special super light version for very weak conditions that is also full
carbon. Flying weight of this version is 1950 g. Some of the competitions this year confirmed justness of this version for calm conditions. Lots of testing and measurements of performance confirmed difference comparing to standard carbon 68 version. But this version make sense only for calm no thermal conditions. WE also considered v-tail version, that's weight would be even 100g lower (1850 g of sl version and 2050-2100 g of carbon 68). But we relinquished from this idea for now because of the worse handling of all v-tail models and also because of the low demand for F3J models with v-tails in general.

18/3 New joiner mould Pike Perfect ready
The first joiners were solid but we have now made new mould and saved 17g on each joiner. The new joiners are hollow and weighs 18g each. That is a total save on 34g. It probably sounds little but this is out in the tip and makes a difference.

We are still alive and flying. We spent three more days experiencing calmer air. Unfortunately it was again far away from floating conditions.

2/3 evening from Philip
O.K. Guys, first day's done!
We had more wind today than expected, but nevertheless we went out to do the first flýghts on the Pike perfect.
We spent quite a long time on fixing a suitable CG for that weather and finally I was happy flying it on 107mm measured behind the Rootsections leading edge.......

2/3-06: from Philip Kolb:
I just finished the first model yesterday and put some pictures in the attachment. Dealing to fix the model was very easy, nothing unexpected, just perfect work done by samba model. The plane looks really promising and whilst the weather down here looks quite promising too (we have some 15°C, partly cloudy skies and about 6m/s Wind) the first flights will take place in a few hours. I surely let you know how it went. Some pictures

Pike Giant moulds are ready!!
The Pike Giant is a Pike Brio but with new bigger tips.
Prototype was first tested in WC F3J 2004 by Jo Grini. Jo brought home 1000points in difficult rounds when nobody flew full times. In EC F3J 2005 Jaroslav Tupec brought it for windy rounds. The model have what is needed for new F3J style flying. This means more aggressive flying yet still be able to slowly work some neutral air with huge camber. The Pike Giant have a range that makes it THE weapon for working the last of a thermal far away and be able to come home. Ballast in windy conditions is no longer needed with this model.
The weights are in the range 2100-2200 depending on layup and fuse chosen. Wingspan is 3,3m, area 64dm and airfoil used is MG-06. The spar for Pike Giant is even stronger than the one used for Pike Brio.
The model have allready been used for success in several Nationals and European Championship F3J. See our Success page.
New webpage for Pike Giant soon.

Cyprus open 2005 - results - pictures
We had a great time at Cyprus, everything was super and free of charge. Organization of the competition was also very good. Lot of food and drinks for all the day. They took the boxes with models to the hotel with a large truck. The accomodation was in a 5 star hotel on the coast (1 night 225 USD/person).
But the conditions durind the competition were very difficult. We had to fly very far with not very strong thermals. Results are as following:
1. Reinhard Valant Europia GER
2. Jan Kohout PIKE Superior x-tail CZE
3. Joe Wurst Icon USA
4. Vítězslav Štěrba PIKE Superior x-tail CZE
5. Skip MIller PIKE Superior x-tails USA
6. Neil Jones PIKE Superior v-tail GBP
Unfortunately David Hobby was not there. One of the competitors told us that F3J becomes more fair. When we asked him why, he told us that all pilots start to fly with the same model, he was talking about Superior :-)
Well half of the pilots were flying with Superior.
1st price was 1 week stay in luxury hotel + air tickets
2nd price was MC 24
3rd was PIKE Superior
The only one trouble was with small distances between the spots (about 8 m) so there was a lot of crashes (also minimum 4 Superiors). Thanks to North Cyprus Aviation Association for organization and invitation to such a great event. It was very nice to meet F3J filots from many countries and nice diversification of winter season.

PIKE Brio now in production
The PIKE Brio model is designed for top F3F flying. It is also easy to control like all PIKE´s. You can also fly F3B category with this model.

 

Development and the production :
The prototype was finished of styropor and balsa. Kevin Newton and Radovan Plch have tested the qualities of the model and it is great. The model is now in production. Some details: Wingspan 3m, new fuse with 2 piece V-tail or Superior fuse, profile MG06 mod. Weight carbon X-tail: apx 2050g

Official Brio page are HERE... 
Throws are HERE

Kevin Newton is one of the test-pilots and some pictures and writing is on his site: www.knewt.com 
Latest news is that Kevin won the UK F3F League in 2002 by the largest amount in many years using the Brio prototype. 

PIKE Carbon fuse  
How to get good range on a carbon fuse

12.4.2003 Many questions about range on carbon fuses so we have now put a page with solutions just for you. Be sure to make range checks and never fly your plane with bad range.
See the solutions on THIS PAGE 

PIKE Superior Xtail NEW: Now also with X-tail 
The Superior can now be supplied with X-tail. 

05.12.2002 We have just developed and tested a new X-tail for Superior. This fuse can also be used on the Brio... The X-tail is smaller than the one used on the Pike Plus and made all composite and so stiff that it can be used in any F3X competition. 
See some pictures on THIS PAGE


PIKE Superior
is finally here. 
At last a completely new model from Samba for F3J, F3B. 
It was constructed by the newest knowledge about aerodynamics and about the construction of the models that guarantee the big strength of the models by small weight. And also we took advantage of our many years experience.

Superior just left the line in Norway. Development and the production :
In June 2001 the protype was finished of styropor and balsa. We have tested the qualities of the model for 4 months and it was great. It was just like we wanted, the qualities are as we expected. After small changes we the final version of the model is now in production.
Model was tested by Ing. Jan Kohout and Jaroslav Tupec. The production of the moulds was made with CAD-CAM technology. The tooling was made on 3D professional cutter that works with 0,02 mm precision. The result are really very exact moulds. 

Specification:
Wing span: 3300 mm
Wing area: 66,5 dm2
The profile in the centre of the wing: HQ/W 2,5/8 - the camber and the thickness is gradually changed to the end of the wing
Flying weight: 1860 - 2180g -it depends on the version of the strength
Ballast tube: 500 g - 1500 g - depends on the version
Joiners are 11,5x11,8 mm (bigger than the old one)
3-piece wing
The leading edge is ellipsed. The flaps and ailerons are bottom hinged that makes better aerodynamics because we don't need big servo covers.
The seating of the wings and V-tail is very strong and precise.

Picture 1 | Picture 2 | Picture 3 | Fuselage 1 | Fuselage 2 | Wing 1 | Tail 1 |

Differences between PIKE Plus and PIKE SUPERIOR
Three times champions in the Czech championship F3J 2002- much more better gliding quality
- better penetrating 
- faster tows
- very good circling flight 
- very good handling by landing
- the flaps are broader - 60 mm

Success of Superior:
Allready the Superior shows power around the world
- National champion F3J and combined champion F3B/J, Jo Grini of Norway
- National champion F3J, Michel Freisse of France
- All top three placings in Czech championship
