Savex
 
Does anyone know if Savex is still in business.

I lost my L39 in a mid air on Sunday and ned a replacement, but no reply to my email to Savex.

Any help will be appreciated.

Sorry for your loss David. Had bought a l39 from them around 3.5 years ago.

Chatty.

Thank you, Chatty, sad loss, pure accident.
Ironically was the first airborne test of my Core, and just the 5th flight of my new X45 which was undamaged !

Need TCAS !

Do hope I can replace it.

David,

I have a like new RTF Savex L-39 with a Wren 44 that I haven't flown in a couple of years.

Is it of any interest to you?

Thank you but too far away.
Seems Savex no longer making model aircraft.

Hi David,

I was always thiniking should I order one or not......while do that it seems that you are right and SAVEX doesn't do any models these days.....sad.

I know that people in Germany often say that these models were made/designed by Axel Schreiner - his models (and even the L-39) can be found here:

Ok- just learned that I need 10 posts to post a link....look for insider Modellbau in Switzerland -> Elektrojets -> GFK Jets -> Insider Modelle

Maybe that is of help for you !

BR from Germany

Although not full composite, but the sebart L39 should have similar specks. I am sure all your gear from the Savex could fit in there. Will be a much faster build than the savex too.

Thank you Markus and Chatty, I am on the case. I really need a new home for the exquisite x 45!

Sorry for the mid air David.

Pretty sure this is the same plane,, ours from Savex is still going strong with a Kingtech K-45.

best regards, Enrique.

Don't know if you have had any luck with the Schreiner L39 but I had one of these about 15 years ago. It seemed almost identical to the Savex version. Another route might be the Blackhorse L39 which is ply / balsa construction and several people have converted it to turbine using Wren 44's / K45 / P60 dry weight seems to be around 11 lbs. It is a bit bigger than the Savex, around the size of the small Airworld version I think. There is a good build thread on RC groups large EDF jets page 3.

Regards

John

Thanks, John. Gave up on a L39 and the x45 is now mounted on my E Flite Blanik. Not a lot of thrust for a big glider but should be OK. At least the exquisite Little X 45 is now visible atop the Blanik. Paritech state the Wren 44 will fly well on their DG 303 which is bigger and heavier than the Blanik. I wilL soon find out as my DG has my Wren 44 Gold on it, ready to go !

Again many thanks for your suggestions.!

David.
