Looks like the prop pitch is small (like ten) and belly pan has a bulb for header...
My guess is a smoke-trail engine.

Hi Papaone,
I am glad to hear that Christophe will continue flying glow powered pattern planes. The Oreka is certainly an interesting design. I hope he does well in the upcoming World Championships, glow fliers are a dying breed...

I really like the looks of the Elixir. I guess the two T-Can approach is now the way to go. Not as much area as the triplanes that have appeared recently, but what else would you call it? I see it is contra powered; so no need for the airbrakes like those on the Oreka.
Thanks for posting!

Air brakes are only on the GP Oreka.

It will probably be "follow-the-leader" on the concept of two canalizers, at least if all will go well with Oreka on the upcoming F3A World Championships Aug 3-10 in Italy.

How many known designs is it out there today with two canalizers?
- Oreka (design CPLR, new 2019)
- Elixir (design Pegase Composites / Arnaud Poyet, new 2019)
- Pandora (design Gernot Bruckmann, new 2017, updated for WC 2019?)
- PrometheuS monoplane (design
Sebastiano Silvestri, designed 2014 or so but released on the market 2015 or so)
- ?

The PromethouS monoplane was the first 2M F3A plane with top and buttom canalizers as far as I know, but although Sebastiano Silvestri flew this monoplane at European Championships 2014 (place 9) he did not continue to fly it himself in 2015 when he instead started to fly the new PromethouS biplane at WC that year (place 11). Maybe his design PromethouS monoplane will get somewhat of a re-birth now if the two canalizer trend will hold on?

The shape and siezes on the top and buttom canalizers I'm sure is a thing that will be experimented with in the future.
For example Gernot Bruckmann has modfifed the top and bottom canalizers on his Pandora as can be seen here:
https://www.facebook.com/BruckmannGe...type=3&theater

I suppose also, if Oreka will place high at coming WC, there will be more planes with more sweept wings and wing tip plates also.

Oreka:
One of the first Oreka planes has been delivered now to a customer, that use Contra (Adverun) in his Oreka:

Looks like a lot of new judges. I guess younger eyes are needed! Enjoy the experience, Scott. I hope you get a chance to do some sightseeing. Northern Italy is beautiful.
Of course we'd all like to hear your thoughts on the competitors and their aircraft once you get settled back down under.

Speaking with Christophe about the Oreka - The sweep gives more stability and the winglets help with tracking, both in level flight and knife edge manoeuvres.
The air brakes come on at low throttle, 2-3 clicks off idle. The top one goes up and the bottom one goes down. Both 45 degrees. But are switched off for spins and stall turns.

I suspect it will present very well too.
