Pod #133 is the newest and largest pod we have so far produced at CLM Pro.
This pod is designed so that it has beautiful aerodynamic lines, is easy on the eyes and, most importantly, possesses excellent flight characteristics. The pod is large and strong enough to easily carry 4-meter / 158" wings. The fuselage pod #133 can be used for various purposes in various categories, such as F5J, F3J, ALES and other homebuild projects or replacements for a pre-existing model.
The pod is completely made of composites (multiple types of materials), mainly aramid, and has carbon fiber reinforcements on strategic spots, giving it additional strength to endure heavier straining. It is, of course, 2.4 GHz friendly. It is strong enough to withstand even hardcore landings and other forces. The part where the tow hook is, the pylon are also reinforced, just like the top of the nose, so it can be landed roughly.
The canopy is designed in a way that there is enough space to easily manipulate all the components in the pod, allowing the battery to be inserted and connected easily, improving usability on the field. The edges around the canopy are also reinforced with carbon.
It is supplied with a removable carbon canopy.
The pylon is 184 mm / 7.24" long i additionally strengthened with multiple carbon types and layers, so the wings may be up to 260 mm / 10.23" in depth, but even larger ones can be mounted. Dihedral angle of pylon is 2.5° on each side.
This pod is suitable for wingspans of up to 4 meters (158"). It is ideal for home builders, as it can be used as a replacement pod for other projects, too.
The standard pod version is in white, i.e. coated with gel coat, which is UV stable and wear-resistant.
We also offer the carbon version 1K aero carbon, hybrid (carbon-kevlar 1K) and other colors according to the buyer's wishes.
Tailboom suitable for this pod: Carbon tailboom #222 and extra strong #223.
The pod #133 is designed so that it can be converted into an electro version.
Being that the nose is additionally strengthened, it can be cut off at a certain length to achieve the required diameter. To install a motor for the electro version, you only need to glue a firewall and it is done.
If you require a pod version which is lighter or much stronger than the standard one, simply contact us and we can make a custom one for you. This also goes for the selection of materials.
Coming soon: we will also offer a ballast option for pod #133. The ballast tube will be made of kevlar to ensure strength and it will easily carry enough ballast. The weights are made of CNC processed brass weighing up to 800 gr.
