Love relaxed and unproblematic sailplane soaring? Then the Fling is for you. This model's small dimensions make it transport-friendly, and it will fly tight circles without much loss of height, which is especially useful with tighter thermal columns. The Fling can be hand, or high-launched with the included rubber bungee. Prefabrication of the fibreglass fuselage and covered wing and tail unit mean that even inexperienced modellers can quickly build and fly.

Features:

  • Ready for its first flight in as little as 2-3 hours
  • Can be launched by hand to catch low-lying thermals - or by the included high-start to ride bigger and stronger thermals up top
  • Arrives with the control surfaces hinged, balsa sections already covered - and a tow hook and carbon-fibre boom installed on the tough, light fibreglass fuselage
  • Simplifies operation with simple rudder and elevator controls - and offers smooth, pinpoint response with light, strong pull-pull set-ups
  • Docile and forgiving for all fliers - practically self-piloting when trimmed to perfection
  • Includes all required hardware, an illustrated instruction manual - and a FREE mini high start
