The KK Minimoa is a stunningly beautiful scale model of the truly classic gull wing sailplane.
Not a beginner's model, but would be a great vintage project for the more experienced builder.
An excellent flyer, our replica kit features top quality laser-cut parts to aid accurate, speedy construction.
The model can be launched by tow line or bungee rig and could be converted to two channel, lightweight R/C.
This kit is a laser-cut replica of the original KK model of a Minimoa 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.
