New RCRCM plane. "Angela"

Just got a notification from RCRCM on there new plane... The "Angela"

Has a rudder and flaps. Hmmm. Looks like a cool idea.

Thoughts?

Jer,

Looks like a 'hollow molded' version of the Raven from NCFM.

Not sure I like the dihedral. Flat wing would be faster

True, Chip, true

I haven't seen the one you mentioned. So is the elevators with the flaps and Ailerons separate?

I for one am hopeing to hear James' comments on this one
A 2 meter plank is a pretty big step into an uncharted area of sailplane mass production. I'm betting it's probably more on the slermal side of things, curious it has a rudder

Looks a strange beast - I can only assume it's aimed more at the flat field with that planform and dihedral. And the name.... dear oh dear. It sounds like it should be a small beige Japanese hatchback from the 80s...

Yes, indeed it was, the Datsun Angela :-). Ha! The Angela looks like a very bluff slope-trainer to me. Not bad for starters. The 'airfoil: special'-part on the website RCRCM is rather... hmmm... special. Probably some old molds from the 90's (of the previous century) they recycle into a flying wing.

Looks like - when they land in Blighty I'll seriously consider one, if I see some favourable flight reports first

It does look like a more of a beginner easy to fly plane. Not a bad thing, just different.
