Looking for an affordable 2-meter sailplane that can fly with the best of them? Well look no further, you have found it!!
The large wing area plus the semi-elliptical planform, combined with the long length and generous tail area, gives it a "visual footprint" as big as some open class ships. Very important for beginners. This is a two-meter that is easy to see! Stability and damping in pitch and yaw is very high. The high damping from the long tail moment slows down its behavior to within the ability of a beginner to mentally keep up with it. The long tail moment also makes the plane's response to air currents much easier to see, which is a significant help for perfecting your thermalling skills. This is one airplane that really "talks" to you. Has an excellent turning radius for those small thermals. Spoilers are standard equipment, they're absolutely necessary if you want to get it to come down within a reasonably sized landing area. Building is very fast and easy, especially with our new "Laserwebs" one-step shear webbing system for the wing. nstructions are drawn on CAD, with lots of exploded views and isometric line drawings.
For both the sailplane and electric versions, the wing & fuse/tail are available as separate kits. This makes it easy share a wing between your sailplane and electric fuselages or to replace a damaged item.
