The Mercury Mentor is a very high performance, rubber-powered, contest model.

Our kit features relatively simple, built up construction using precision laser-cut parts, but this is definitely not a beginner's model as it requires some knowledge of trimming, use of dethermalisers and timers.

This is a lovely vintage project for the more experienced free flight fan.

The Mentor can easily be modified by the experienced builder to take an electric motor and lightweight 3 channel R/C equipment, converting it into a powered glider, for relaxed summer evening thermal flying.
