Looking for something a little more high end to tear up your local slope? Then this model is what you are looking for!
Produced from CAD designed and CNC generated moulds, this sailplane was designed with a wide range of possible flyers in mind - from novice to expert.
Featuring fully hollow moulded fibreglass, carbon and Kevlar construction, this glider is an extremely stiff yet light airframe!
Advanced pilots will recognize the availability of crow braking, fullspan camber adjustment and snap flap for extremely quick reversals on the slope. The Sunbird packs a 'full house' glider into a 1520mm affordable, fully moulded, high performance package - and she looks fantastic!
Designed it to be very transportable – disassembled it can fit on a car parcel shelf, so it is very convenient to carry around, but at the same time we wanted an airframe that in expert hands could really perform.
The aerofoil section gives a very wide speed range and possibility of operation in a wide range of wind conditions - The kit includes a carbon ballast tube for loading her up for those heavy slope days!
The models fuselage, wing and control surfaces are beatuifully finished and painted in mould. All control surfaces are fully live hinged and have their wipers pre-installed, all of the control horns are located through the upper wing surface - very clean and leaving nothing to snag on the ground. Her wing joiner is solid square carbon fibe - strong in an understatement! Her elevator is of the all flying type and is a plug in affair with the bellcrank pre-installed, also pre-installed are the carbon pushrods - all very, very nice!
Not forgetting the fuselage of course, which has plenty of carbon reinforcement, the nose section being 2.4 ghz friendly Kevlar with carbon reinforcement in high stress areas. The radio bay is large enough to enable installation of your radio system without fuss. The aileron and flap servos are located in the wings and their mounting areas are reinforced with a layer of carbon, the streamlined servo covers are very clean fitting to reduce parasitic drag.
All required hardware is included with the kit.
Flight testing has revealed a very good turn of speed, high maneuverability, no bad habits, and very controllable landing characteristics.
The first time you hear her whistle past - as only 'mouldies' can - you won't stop smiling!
