The model is manufactured by HQ Composites to a very high standard. The quality of the parts is excellent. The cut and finish are superb. You have to see the glider to really appreciate the beauty and shine of the surfaces.
The model is entirely molded in carbon. The fuselage is a very nice design with a good sized pod for easy servo and receiver insertion. In addition, a ballast tunnel is integrated to allow for easy weight addition in windy conditions. The fuselage also has partially open cavities for aileron control. This is a great innovation, characterized by the simplicity of the external aileron horns as well as most of the drag reduction of the pallions and control rods.
The wing is beautifully molded from expanded carbon with a solid center construction and a very good surface finish. The aerodynamics of the wing are based on Gerald Taylor's Synergy airfoil family, modified to work with the lower wing cores of this high aspect ratio design.
The comprehensive accessory bag includes a heavy duty launch peg, all horns, torsion springs for the tailplanes, a control cable and two servo plates, for four KST X08 or four MKS DS75K or HV75K servos.
It is also possible to install Blue Bird BMS 101 servos
