The KK Dolphin is a really classic design with unusual shaped fuselage, which actually adds to the lift produced by the model, making it an outstanding flyer.
Features very simple, straightforward construction for the intermediate builder.
Our replica kit includes top quality laser-cut parts to aid accurate, speedy building.
A perfect candidate for the new "36" class bungee launch competition.
This kit is a laser-cut replica of the original KK Dolphin glider.
Construction of the model from this kit uses the traditional method of "stick and tissue", that consists of a built up balsa wood skeleton (framework), covered with a tissue skin.
The balsa frameworks are built over a plan that is printed at the exact scale of the model, which is in essence a real engineering drawing.
Free flight means just that - once the model is launched, it is on its own. It must follow a predetermined flight path established when the model is initially adjusted for flight or "trimmed".
This type of traditional building technique and flying requires a degree of patience and skill, but is extremely rewarding.
Balsa wood sheets with precise laser cut parts and strip wood.
Acetate sheet for canopy.
