Micro DLG RC Glider
RC Glider Kit – Micro Radio Control – Feather² Squared
Take fanciful flight with this ultra-light-weight micro radio control RC DLG glider. Experience the unique pleasure of taking full control of this slim 43+- gram balsa and carbon fiber model directing flight straight into thermals effortlessly.
The Feather² was designed with simplicity in mind, using under chambered airfoil section, super thin trailing edge reversed d-box design to make the model more sensitive to weak thermals . Using 10 airfoil ribs along each wing panel, with the last two foils slightly modified for a slight wing twist change (washout) allowing for better lateral airflow, this improves energy retention and over all provides a floaty aircraft, putting a whole new meaning to “rising to the occasion”. Practically unbreakable, the Feather’s ultralight signature weight and carbon fiber reinforcements allows for even the hardest crash landings without a single scratch or dent.
The Feather² Squared glider comes with laser cut ribs, laser
cut tail feathers ( rudder & elevator ), laser cut control horns and launch peg housing. Main boom is carbon fiber, with carbon fiber pushrods, carbon fiber leading edge and carbon fiber main wing spars. Both tail feathers have pre-cut control horn slots and hinge line.
No other radio control glider this size and scale will perform like the Feather² Squared. At a tender weight of 43-47 grams, attractive design with built-up wing ribs, catching thermals at your local park has never been easier. Flying the Feather² glider can be a very peaceful and relaxing experience. Gliding at slow speeds gives stability and plenty of time to react.
To cover the balsa ribbed wings on the Feather² Glider, light weight colored tissue paper is used. Included in the kit you will find 4 white pieces to cover both wing panels and random trim colors for counter balance and esthetics. These are .8 grams per sheet ( 4x = 3.2grams ). Your other options are Esaki Japanese Tissue or Gampi Japanese Tissue, these are .6 grams per sheet ( 4x = 2.4grams).
