The wing is from a EPP free-flight glider (FIK 80), the fuselage comes from a Graupner Mini Discus C2 (with some EPP to match it with the wing). The tailbooms are made of balsa, the elevator of 6mm Depron. The vertical stabilizers are made from the Mini Discus's horisontal stabilizer, cut in two.

"Le Bleu" is equipped with a Spectrum AR6300 receiver, two DSP60J servos (elevator/rudder), an Eflite Park 180 Brushless Outrunner Motor 2200Kv and a Castle Creation 10Amp esc. It's powered by FlightPower's EVO Lite V2 3s 350mAh (which was recommended to me when I bought the motor/esc, even tough I don't think 3s is recommended for this motor)

wingspan: 80cm
lengh: 47,5cm
weight: appr. 130g

I'm still amazed how well it flies with such a small motor!
