Building an Electric Powered Sailplane
I recently purchased a German made sailplane kit which can be built as either an electric powered sailplane or built for a Hi-Start. I'm choosing to build it as an electric powered sailplane.
This kit is unique as you can purchase three (3) different wing extensions that will plug into a common wing root. That way it can be used for slope or thermal.
The kit is a aero-naut Triple with 3 wings: the Speed, the R.E.S., and the Thermic. I chose the Thermic wing which is 2.5mm wingspan. This is also my first V-tail plane. Fortunately my transmitter easily compensated for the V-tail.
So far, I have the fuselage, V-tail, and part of one of the wing extensions built up. The kit has laser cut parts so that helps in the assembly.
The manual for building this kit is in German. Fortunately I was able to find an edition for the U.K. That has helped me tremendously to put this kit together.
