20140912 Update

First full carbon wings and PMI tails are coming to me ...

main wing///
airfoil: ZV2 modi for high AR
aera: 19.2 dm2
root chord: 160mm
AR: 11.7
dihedral angle: 5.8


stab///
airfoil: freak v2
aera: 2.08 dm2

fin///
airfoil: Z4D
aera: 2.13 dm2



------------------------------

After the lovely mini plane"Stella", we are proud to announce our new 1.5m plane project named Solar.

We have done lots of work on the beta plane and finally decide to move it to a higher level suitable for contest but with a reasonable price.

I can't share too much yet but I can share some photos to let you guys know what we have done in last year.

I wish my boy can send me the final edition on time and let you try it in the contest.

Then we can make it the plane we use for the launch height competition. (If Thomas's new Aerial is not finished that time haha!)
