It looks pretty good for the money. Most 3m gliders are a lot more expensive. Of course you can't judge the quality of the layup and build by looking at the pictures. I don't like the top hinged flaps.

Interesting that the Webpage for it,...

....shows 2 locations: > Sale/Liquidation > Liquidation Items & > Planes & Parts > Gliders

Maybe the Mfgr isn't supplying anymore

It's pretty much an RCRCM Strega, but with a strengthened fuse which is a good thing as that is a weakness of the Strega.

Bad flap design. Hinged on top, according to the pictures I have seen.
