2M Chrysalis-E-Lite Electric Sailplane


Product Description

The “Chrysalis-E-Lite” 2 meter powered sailplane is the natural evolution of the “Chrysalis-Lite” sailplane. Using the same wing and tail, we have created a very simple pod and boom fuselage with provisions for installation of our small, but powerful, motor system. The result is a powered sailplane with a rapid climb rate (15 seconds to 300 feet!) and excellent motor-off soaring capability. 

***We have 2 color choices for decals. A black one will be supplied standard. If you prefer a white one then please note that on your order!***

Other features include:
*3 piece wing, standard
*Pod and boom construction for fast and accurate assembly, and optimum strength to weight ratio.
*Many pre-fabricated parts, including pre-shaped/tapered ruddervator leading and trailing edges, control system components.
*Rib shapes include compensation for sag in covering material.
*Diagonal wing bracing to eliminate the need for extensive wing sheeting and associated weight and labor.
*Pre-shaped and notched wing trailing edges, and dowel leading edges for airfoil accuracy and ease of assembly.
*2 full size plan sheets and a step-by-step, photo illustrated assembly manual.

*To make our kit fast and easy to build, we have incorporated many “interlocking” structures. For example, both the stabilizer and the ruddervators are assembled dry…..placed flat on your assembly table, and the joints glued with the part in that position…..literally self-aligning with no need to assemble over the plans!
