Purchased from Gliders UK some time ago this 3 metre span sail plane had been unboxed and the bits standing in the back of the garage. The early 2015 weather being rather inclement at present I decided that I would make some more effort to get this glider put together. Previously I had fixed the stabiliser and rudder fitted their servos and connectors and installed servos in the wings. Although designated ARF this model is far from that!
You can either motorise it or make it slope only. The white fuselage is really smooth grp and the wings are traditional balsa / ply, white film covered and the wings do pass the "squeeze" test well. The squeeze test using thumb and forefinger tells you if it has plenty of ribs to support the balsa sheeting. The hardware comes in various bags unmarked and the manual is non existent. Just a parts list on a exploded plan. Not a big issue if you have built scratch models before or had some experience of numerous ARFs.
