My daughter and I attended the Central Valley Soaring Club Spring RC Aero Tow in Visalia, CA. this past weekend. During the three day event, I fell in love, yes in love with Ren DiLeo's 1/4 Scale Schweizer 1-26E.
Ren produces the 1-26 and it is truly a work of art. Ren is a master craftsman who's truly produced a stunning example of this classic Schweizer sailplane. The model brings back many great memories of visiting Glider Ports in Florida in the mid-70s.
