This airframe-only kit builds up into a simple 3 channel RC glider.

With a 63” (1600mm) wingspan and wing attached with rubber wing bands, it’s large enough to see and fly in a moderate breeze, yet small enough to transport easily in your car.

Designed to be flown as a powered glider or as a pure un-powered slope soarer.

If you already have your own preferred electronics and covering, then this is the kit for you.

Easy to put together and ready to take your choice of motor, ESC, receiver and servos.

Now includes 2 x 2m rolls of polyester heat-shrink covering in contrasting colours!


  • 4 sheets of plywood parts
  • 11 sheets of balsa parts

  • Quicklinks (clevises) for snakes
  • M3 Captive (T) nuts for mounting optional motor
  • M3 screws/bolts
  • Flocked mylar hinges
  • 3mm neodymium magnets
  • Control horns
  • Wooden dowel
  • Hook & Loop to attach battery
  • Wing bands
  • 2 x 2m rolls of polyester heat-shrink covering in contrasting colours


Most orders are shipped via Royal Mail’s Tracked 48 service.

For larger or heavier orders, we use UKMail/DHL to deliver your package on a Next Working Day service.

Shipping is free to UK Mainland addresses for orders over £30.00, otherwise we charge £6.00 for Royal Mail Tracked 48 parcels and £12.00 for UKMail/DHL Nest Working Day.


Smaller items

Items that fit within Royal Mail International Tracked Medium Parcel parameters (59cm x 17cm x 15cm weighing less than 2kg) can be sent to most countries outside the UK.

For example up to 3 of our smaller 18” wingspan kits can fit into one of these parcels.

A parcel like this currently costs around £14 to Europe and around £18 to send to the USA and will take up to 3 weeks to arrive. This is because Royal Mail hands over the parcel to the local Post Office service for your country who have to clear it through customs and then deliver it to you.

The Royal Mail tracking code also transfers over to the tracking for your country’s postal service.

Larger items

For items that do not fit within Royal Mail International Tracked Medium Parcel parameters, we use standard international couriers such as DHL, FedEx and UPS.

These companies use something called volumetric weights to calculate the cost of shipping.

For example, a Balsa Basics RC bundle kit that measures 102cm x 34cm x 16cm and weighs 2.5 kg is actually calculated at 14kg!

This makes these very expensive to send outside the UK - a large kit can cost nearly £40 to send to France.
