Build Log
Mini Supra's build(bagged).

For a long time I wanted to upgrade my Aegea. Now I'm ready.
I will document here two mini Supra's (2m Supra) build.
It will be basically building of the wings and tails because I already have the fuses and booms.
First I ordered two sets of the wing and tail cores from Anker.
These CNC cut cores are almost perfect. I had find only a few minor distortions.
Let say the best I ever saw.


I'll use Aegea spar system and wing/tail layup with some mods. Top surfaces be painted too.

First I has drawn the tails from data points(lots of work), then did full size templates.
Next the tails was cut to sizes and sanded.

Once done I would be interested in you telling us which flies better the Supra or the Agea.

Thanks Viktor, always fun to watch your build thread.

I'm also interested. I would like to replace, some day, my Carl Coldberg Electra, for something more sophisticated. I had an electrified Aegea in mind. But if a mini-Supra is a better choice, I might consider to build me one to.

Maybe I missed it, but how does the wingplatform from the miniSupra look like?
-Foils from the original Supra?
-al dimensions / 1.7?
-same dihedral and washout?

I saved enough 1.0oz kevlar scrap making DLG wings.
Four pieces for every surface. Sheared ahead and bias at rear part.
No spars indeed.

Wing airfoil: AG40, AG41, AG42, AG43.

Weight (without ballast):
Sprite Thermal Glass 890 g (31.4 oz)
Ballast: 150...500 g (12...30 oz)
Control: Ailerons, flaps, rudder, movable horiz. stabilizer
