ARF Composite Wing w/ Fin?
3 Attachment(s)
This was originally posted in the "Flying Wings" forum but no response, so here goes...

Hi folks, does anyone know of an ARF Composite Wing w/ a single Fin (FG/Carbon fuse + foam sheeted wings) other than the Art Hobby Tigra 1.4?

I'm looking for something mainly to fly on the slope, but the addition of a motor wouldn't hurt for those milder days.
There seems to be a lot of the foam options; Weasel, Pioneer, etc. but would really prefer a "crunchy."

Models seen so far are:

No idea if you want to order it but the Tigra 1.4 is available here ---> http://modellflugwelt.de/flugzeuge/s...294/tigra-1.4m The online shop is ok I have ordered there before.

Frankenmodellbau Mamba?

Pace Wing http://www.leskycomposite.at/

Petoma http://www.fliegerlandshop.de/shop/N...2q6dbn5rjvkln0

These are fully moulded though. You might be better off asking on the slope forum to see if anyone have something they'd like to part with.

Have you considered one of the Strongs? ( http://www.laqua-modelltechnik.de/Di...ng-Familie.htm )
I've never done business with them but have seen their aeroplanes fly and they certainly appear to work well.
Best of luck and do post some pics / a report on what you eventually get.

All great suggestions :D
I wonder how much shipping to the US/Asia would be for the Strong series of planks.
The Pace Wing and Pitbull are beautiful ships, but just a little out of my price range for now.
It seems that ArtHobby also sells the Tigre direct, which isn't too bad a deal at $165.

Still looking into the option of custom wing cores and an off-the-shelf fuse to make a mutant Balmung Mini as well.

I've also discovered the Poky 40 which is $345.

I trust that you have seen this modest thread on crunchie planks.

I might have found this one a while ago when not looking for planks, but then forgot about it. Very cool :cool:

Thanks Kent
