The KK Gazelle is an exceptional, profile, first stunt control line trainer, designed by aeromodelling genius, Dave Platt, for 1 - 1.5cc (.06 - .09cu.in) diesel and glow-plug motors.
Construction is very straightforward, robust, featuring precision laser-cut parts and will get you flying as quickly as possible.
Displays very stable flying characteristics, combined with sparkling, crisp stunt performance.
An exciting, but easy to fly model, offered at a most economical price.
This kit is a laser-cut replica of the original KK Gazelle.
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.
This type of traditional building technique and flying requires a degree of patience and skill, but is extremely rewarding.
