Product LIST

  • WF-XL 116" wing span, RES with optional polyhedral and flaps. Inspired by the Windfree. S3014 airfoil. I have tweaked the looks and improved the flight performance. Frank Wren will write the building instructions. I think it is beautiful. It will be offered with a choice of ribs for a fully sheeted wing or D-Tube sheeting. The stab is also d-tube sheeted with built up trailing edge and the stab control horn is inside the fin. I'm sure many will be built with ailerons and flaps with a lower dihedral angle.

    This is a very, very quick building kit. The fuse snaps together with dead on accuracy. And the wing is three piece for easy transporting and construction. No wing rod to install means QUICK CONSTRUCTION.

    I am very glad I can bring this classic back to the flying fields and it is just in time for today's high interest in installing e power to our Sailplanes. There is plenty of room in the fuse for the motor and batteries with easy access.

  • ASK 18, 64" wing span, fiberglass fuse and molded canopy with optional Hi Start. Fiberglass fuse and vac. formed canopy. S 3014 airfoil ( best all around airfoil I know of), this awesome small scale design will be great for slope or launched from my specially designed Hi Start for small field flying.
