I've been looking at this myself. If it floats like a radian I'll take it. Let us know how it goes

minimoa

The minimoa flies like an radian with aelerons. I put a.review in the hi site for it last nite. I really like the minimoa. Only bad thing i.can say is that i am missing one of the aluminum joined rods. And that like the radian full power climbs require a lot of down elevator

I do like some of the traditional gliders better than some of the spear with wings models (even if they have better performance).

Even if I could afford a fine scale model, I have no room for hi start in the small field I fly from. So a stand off scale model that self launches for a reasonable price gets my attention.

Does any body have info on the wing loading?

Thanks,

Jim

I got mine by EMS Express last Saturday. Maiden it on Monday. Although I had a bad landing, it's a nice plane that didn't want to come down.

I started a thread under the Foamies (kits) section.
