Definitely not a floaty aerobat like the ultrabatics ships. A lot of potential for fast smooth madness there!

Gold Fish

Johann and Sean,
A few questions based on honest ignorance. Is the Le Fish / Gold Fish the same glider, or are they two different models from the same company? After watching your video, I'm very impressed with the flight characteristics. Does the kit come ARF or a pretty basic kit? Are they spendy? Are they difficult to build to completion? Thanks for letting me bug you a bit
Blessings,
Arlen

Hey, Arlene.

Here's the thread for Johann's home-built, moulded GoldFish, possibly inspired by the Le Fish. http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1624009

Le Fish is kitted by Leading Edge Gliders (www.leadingedgegliders.com -- interesting, the website seems to be down!)

No Shadowman,
You sent him to page one!!
He'll never make it to the end!

Arlen, It's a home built. The wing set is based on the Le Fish at 66". The fuz is of my own making, but I've got some cores cut that should give the wings a sleeker look!
Hehehe
Then I can call it my own!
