Carbon fabric based on spread carbon tape — a new generation of carbon fabrics, the use of which can improve the quality and manufacturability of products composite materials. Manufacture our carbon fabric consists of two main steps:
- Spreading carbon fiber to a predetermined width
- Making fabrc on a special machine.
Aspro fabric structure is more than 1.5 times better implements reinforcing properties of carbon fibers, in comparison with the traditional carbon fabric. Due to use of high-strength carbon fiber, products made of Aspro fabric are more than 2 times stronger and stiffer than of other fabric.Weight reduction of the final product
Application with low weight high strength fabrics allows to optimize thickness of the product while saving necessary strength and stiffness. Thus, it is possible to reduce total weight of the product.Ease of cutting and laying
Carbon fiber are fixed together in fabric by epoxy compatible binder. Fabric does not crumble and loses structure during cutting and laying in the form. There is no need to use additional binder.
Small amount of gaps and flat fabric structure provide excellent quality of surface. Final product practically do not require finishing process before painting. Large pattern of fabric weave can be used as design feature.
founder & owner of Aeromodelis
My name is Andrei Iakovlev, I started to build and fly airmodels in age of 13.
2004 – I built my last free flight sailplane and used to work on ship models for museums and other models.
2007 – I joined a tech avionic lab working on unmanned aerial vehicles. The lab became a big company, a leader at this field in Russia. 2014 I left the company due ethical reason, i do not support a development of military equipment.
At that time I actively built and flew hand launch gliders.
2008 – I started my competition career flying my models built with a positive technology. I did a great progress learning 3D cad systems, molding-technology and bought my first CNC mill machine.
2009 – My first international competition – Germany Open
2010 – My first attempts to build F3k glieder with CNC milled solid core, it was model with Zone1 airfoil
2011 – My first WC in Sweden. I established my first lab to develop hand launch gliders and 500 class of F5D models. I met Oleg Golovidov and decided to make together new glider. First prototype was made and flown.
2012 – Validol model was born
2013 – Two new prototypes were made: Validol Lift (designer could not be named due NDA) and a model with a high aspect wing (20 dm2) with Edge airfoil in cooperation with Oleg Golovidov.
Both prototypes were flown on WC in Denmark with good success although never get produced in big numbers.
in 2013 I met Benjamin Rodax and Jochen Reuter and was offered to develop/produce Flitzebogen model what was existed as a prototype and looked very promising. As result of our cooperation work, new improved Flitzebogen was born opening new Flitz era. This great model embodies best concepts and has been well accepted by many hobby and national team pilots. We want to thank all those pilots who help us to improve airframe and fly our models.
A little bit later I developed F5J model Adventure – first 3 meter glider with CNC solid rohacell core what could be taken in the airplane as a cabin baggage. We want to revisit the concept and increase span of the plane as 3 meter is too small for this class. Keep follow us on this one.
2015 – We actively discussed with Benjamin and Jochen next steps of improving the Flitzebogen. Listening our customers and analyse our flying experience we did a lot of changes in the design and development process, as result new flitzebogen2 has been developed. Classic Flitzebogen got some facelift work as well.
At that moment due a political situation in Russia, to be close to our customers and be able scale the business I with my partners, established new company UAB "Aeromodelis” in Lithuania.
Flitzebogen2 or Flitz modern how I name it has been born, developed and produced by new company.
We have a lot of ideas and looking forward to bring new models on the market soon, so stay tuned.
