This High-Tech TD Competition Glider is manufactured from the finest materials, making it possible to achieve a weight saving of almost 400 gm when compared to other FTD models.
The Piper fuselage is constructed from a special Carbon / Kevlar cloth to produce an extremely strong and light fuselage. An electric fuselage is available with a removable nose cone complete with integrated battery holder. The three-piece wings ensure the model is easy to transport. The tip panels are constructed in an open rib structure of selected balsa. Each rib is fitted with a carbon cap strip. The Carbon / Kevlar D-Box and Carbon Spars combine to produce an extremely strong, stable and rigid wing. The tip panels are covered in Ultracote Lite producing a wing of extremely low weight, which would be extremely difficult for the private model builder to achieve. An outstanding competition model, which is suitable for the expert and the sport pilot.

Wingspan: 315 cm (122-3/4")
Length: 148 cm (60-1/2")
Wing profile: MH-32
Stab profile: NACA 63 A009
Kit Weight: 1150 g

Good eye Mark,
I remember the day Dr Fogel brought it to Torrey Pines. I launched it for him.
It flew majestically. He let me have the sticks for a while; it flew itself in the clean lift.
It is a beautiful ship.
