24" KK COMET
The Comet is a simple and sturdy vintage glider that can be assembled in just an hour. It's super stable with polyhedral wings and has a rigid solid hardwood fuselage that can take a hit!
If you want a quick evening project or a model to collaborate on with someone new to the hobby, this could be the flying model for you. It makes a great introduction to the medium of balsa and flying models in general without breaking the bank.

If you are new to chuck gliders to amuse the grandchildren then start with the Polaris and immediately go on to the Comet. Slightly more difficult to build and trim but not much. It flies beautifully. [originally posted on our old website 31/10/2018]
