YOUR KIT

Another beautiful kit from the pen/computer mouse of Peter Rake. It has an 18" wingspan with a totally conventional balsa (and a little ply) frame, with tissue covering construction. The finished weight would ideally be below 40 grams (the further below the better) and Peter's own model was built with control provided by a Vapor brick operating rudder, elevator and throttle and power provided by a AEO 7 mm geared motor and 160 mAh Nano Tech battery.

This 18" Eastbourne monoplane model aircraft kit is made to order in the UK using top quality materials and precision laser-cutting.
