Laima

Great light wind flyer. Would adapt to R/C with light gear. Some pics of mine. Beautiful design, very well made from Flying Wings. Just built a 13 ft version. Not flown yet.

XL Laima

Some shots of the 13 ft. XL Laima. Flies nice as a ultralight kite. Would have to increase spars for a R/C version but very happy with it and great glide.

Finally got it out in some light wind. Wing rods were to small but have gone to bigger rods and will see how it does.
