Scale Glider

Post by Mark Barnes on Mon Feb 20, 2012 5:36 pm

My return to Gliding is imminent soooooo

Im looking for a scale glider around 3m span but no bigger than 4m.

I stupidly didn't order a flyfly 3m Fox and now there out of stock again Evil or Very Mad

Other options Ive seen are the Seagull K8 and B4 which seem ok

Anyone got any other ideas or maybe a flair K8 sat in a box lying around? will consider most options.

I would prefer glass fuz but not to bothered if not (the seagull models are Woodies)

Sadly the Bill Hempel 50% K8 wont fit in the van. http://www.billhempel.com/


Ta in advance

o's as well.
Yup, I know, but Ill bet 20p that many folk , when setting them up for the necessary throws, are getting maybe half of the spec'd torque - and besides, mini gears strip easy, and as we know, flaps can be particulary prone to that.
