An attractive, free-flight sailplane that offers an absorbing traditional build, towline launch and exceptional flying characteristics
For those who already have a little model-making experience the Rare Bird offers a quality and immensely satisfying build due in no small part to its crisp laser-cut components, accurate full-size plan and lightweight wood selection. Sporting traditional tissue covering, a hook and line tow system and a banded wings this gentle flyer offers all the challenges and rewards of stick ‘n’ tissue aeromodelling. It get’s better though! Experienced modellers with a trained eye will already have realised the potential for the Rare Bird to be converted to simple single-channel radio control, or even two-channel with a motor pod. The possibilities for this kit are limited only by your imagination and your skill. The Rare Bird, then, a comfortable build for the relative beginner or an exciting challenge for the experienced radio flyer.
